    Fairfax Circle (Cameron's), 04/14/19

    A misty Sunday morning, so my expectations were low for turnout. As it happens, there was good attendance, anyway. A couple of really nice, older British cars were there.

  3. Katie's, 04/13/19

    It rained through the night last night, but stopped 20 minutes before I left home to go to Katie's. As a result, Cars & Coffee got a late start, and was limited to not much more than a full front...
  4. Genius of the Week

    I have to wonder what made someone do this to their car. The wing... look at the angle on it! Note that the exhaust has been re-routed to the rear valence, flanking the license plate. Finally,...
  5. Katie's, 04/06/19

    A pretty good day for Lotus at Katie's. In addition to my (freshly detailed) Elise, there was also an Exige with carbon doors, which I had never seen, as well as an Evora.
    Steve M. returned with...
  6. Katie's, 03/30/19

    Chuck S. and his Westfield joined my Caterham. I had never seen a Vanderhall three-wheeler.

    Sorry - my laptop gave up the ghost in late March, and I'm just catching up in mid-April! My friend Pete brought out his well-turned-out Sprite...

    Fairfax Circle (Cameron's), 03/17/19

    Glorious! Two weekend days without rain! It was cold... 29F when I got there at the 8:00AM start time. Still, the pent-up demand by regulars brought out a lot of vehicles. Bob Scates brought his...
  10. Katie's, 03/16/19

    Amazing! We had a cool, clear Saturday, and the biggest Katie's by far this year! A few Lotus, and several Lotus people there today, the day before St. Patrick's Day! The cars filled up the lot,...
  11. Katie's, 03/09/19

    This morning, I took my Elise to Katie's for the first time this year. We had snow last night, but the streets were dry when I left home, and the temperature as above freezing - 34F, in fact. This...

    Fairfax Circle (Cameron's), 03/03/19

    At this time of year, this might be more properly termed a 'Coffee with Some Cars'. I don't mind the cold - it's early March, so that is to be expected in the Northern Virginia area. However, we...

    Actually, I was pleasantly surprised by the 8 in person. It looks far better than the magazine pictures, and my pictures, show.

  14. Katie's, 03/02/19

    It's March, and I say it's time for better weather. It seems like we've had rain practically every weekend since the middle of last summer. Who do we contact to fix this?

    Cold and misty today,...

    Thanks! I've never taken a 5-week vacation before!

    Yes, that was a new NSX. You're right, it's not very recognizable. On the Lotus forums, people went crazy, because it looks quite a lot like...

    Fraser 7 In Rotorua, NZ

    While on vacation, throughout Australia & New Zealand, I kept an eye open for interesting cars. I never saw any Lotus, but saw several Ferraris, Porsches, Maseratis, and even a Viper.

    Then, while...

    Mike:

    It's a project vehicle from Virginia Tech - they trailered it. I didn't have a chance to talk to them about the details, but heard it used a 42 hp Yamaha motorcycle engine.

    It was cold this morning - 27 degrees. No wind, but snow is coming this afternoon. Why didn't I drive the Seven this morning? Because it was 27 degrees. Why didn't I drive the Elise? The Elise, which...

    Fairfax Circle (Cameron's), 01/06/19

    A nice day for the first Cameron's Cars & Coffee of 2019: clear skies and mild, for January. It was high 30's, with no wind. We had a pretty decent turnout, including two Lotus - my Elise, and Bob...

    I hope 2019 is not an extension of 2018, weather-wise. The first Katie's of 2019 was hampered by rain, but the loyal core group still showed up. On a positive note, it wasn't too cold, and it was not...

    C7 zr-1

    It is nice - it's a new ZR-1, with all the factory performance options. Over 780hp, and he chose the option to go to the factory and assemble the engine himself.
