  1. Charlotte Area "Cars and Coffee"

    Exotics/Sports Cars/Classics

    Date: Jan 3rd (The first Saturday of each month- weather permitting)

    Time: 9 am- 11am (or until you want to go home)

    Location: North Lake Mall (I-77 Ext 18) Panera Bread Co. (Between Panera and Fox and The Hound)

    6801 North Lake Mall Drive- Charlotte NC 28216 #704.921.0013

    The concept is similar to what they have in Los Angeles and a few other cities in the US called "Cars and Coffee". It is a gathering of mature car owners who just want to get together with other owners with similar interest representing many different makes and models of cars. It is a monthly gathering on the 1st Saturday of each month. The second event will be on January 3rd (weather permitting), @ 9:00 am-until. That way you can hang out in the morning, talk a bit, gawk at cars, gather those who want to go for a drive and still have the rest of your Saturday to do your 'honey do lists'. Whoever shows up, shows up. You come and go as you please.

    We meet and park at North Lake Mall ext 18 off I-77 near the Panera Bread Company (separate parking between Fox and the Hound and Panera- that way we are out of the normal Panera traffic and have the lot to ourselves- it makes for better photo opportunities!).

    In our first event on December 6th we had 45+ cars show up, which was amazing! It was well attended by owners from Charlotte, Lake Norman area, Winston Salem, Greenville-SC, Hickory, and Greensboro. We had several makes and models represented which was great. It included : Acura NSX, Lotus, GT-R (3), Ferrari, BMW, Audi, Z-Cars, Porsche, Mercedes, Mini, S2000, etc. . . .

  2. The local Lotus and Ferrari clubs work well together, and generally invite each other to events such as this. We went last year, but the weather was awful, keeping many of the toys from coming out to play. This year the weather was perfect and we had a great turnout. There were many Italians, including a gorgeous Diablo, as well as a smattering of British and German hardware
