Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

There is a show in the parking lot of an exotic car dealership here in Vegas every Saturday morning, from 8-10AM called Cars and Coffee. It is a mix of everything, lots of muscle cars, exotics, and some imports. I took my GTA today and my buddy had his 84 Z28 there as well. Here is a link to the album of the show! These were not taken by me, they were taken by GPGXP over on the cars and coffee forums.

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

Yeah there was cool stuff there. usually there is a new ZR1 vette or two, and last time I went there were 5 Ford GTs all lined up next to each other it was awesome. Its like that every Saturday too, but I only go once in a while because its so early.. Its weird to say it but I see exotics like that so often its like the norm now to look at them. There are so many car shows here its not even funny.

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

Looks like a great show. I'm itching for the show/cruise season to start up here. Should only be a couple weeks now.

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

We had the Mopar Madness people drive thru our town a few weeks ago, on their way to Las Vegas for their big show.
They stopped by our local dealership for lunch and a small show.
I took over 150 photos of them.
I must say, I really like the new Challengers.
I keep telling myself that I have to go to vegas, and check that weekend gatherning out.
Just I'm never there for the weekends, just during the week.
Someday.......

Yeah I heard about that Mopar madness thing, it was all over the radio here. I agree about the challengers too, I love the way they look. You should come up here for the cars and coffee event once, and tell me when you come up if you do. We could meet up before hand and pull in together, people would be picking their jaws off the ground...

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

Ya,
I'd like too.
Just not to likely take the TTA so early for a partial day gatherning.
I have been posting up some photos of the cars that came thru Kingman for the Mopar Madness show.
If you want to see them, I can post my link to my site.

George cool:

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

I totally understand, I wouldn't want to do it either. I'm confident we will meet each other this year at an event over there or over here. I would like to see the photos as well, I didn't make it to the show when it was here.

Re: Cars and Coffee Las Vegas

I posted up the link to the Mopar Madness thru my town.
As for meeting up, how about here?
http://www.azrt66.com/
I will be there, as I am every year, for the show.
I don't do the whole thing, but Saturday, there will be over 500 cars on display, right in town, closing down the main street!
There are usually a few Trans Ams there.
Maybe you can make it.
