    Sweet x19.. Not many left anymore. I saw one going down the highway the other day. First one I had seen in a couple of decades. Russ

    My friend found that car a couple of years ago - absolutely original, with only a couple thousand miles on it - he's really enjoying it. He has an interesting ownership history - he's had a Lancia Beta Monte Carlo, an AMG Mercedes, and a Noble, among others.

    After being at Katie's early last week, but finding it closed because of the power outage, we (and a LOT of other people) decided today was the day for a drive to Katie's. I had to leave early, to drive up to Pennsylvania for another Lotus club's winter meeting. We had our first look at the 840hp Dodge Challenger Demon.

    A special day at Katies; first, it's St. Patrick's Day, and that really means something at a place called The Old Brogue. Second, the many regulars who missed last week because they were at the Amelia Island Concours in Florida returned, with great stories of cars and car people. Of course, there are ALWAYS great cars at Katie's.

    My favorites this week - the beautiful Mercedes Gullwing replica, built on a newer MB chassis, with a modern AMG engine. Bob Morris' unbelievable, fresh-from-restoration Allard. As beautiful a new car as there is: the Aston Martin DB11. Another all-time favorite of mine: the Alfa Montreal.

    Today was the last Saturday in March, it wasn't too cold, and FINALLY, the salt on the roads has been washed away! A good turnout of Lotus! Michael D is dealing with Seven withdrawal, and had his BMW there today.

    Looks like the Darrin got a lot of attention. I've never seen one actually driving around.

    The guy who owns this Kaiser Darrin is the guy who created this cars & coffee event. He used to have two nearly-identical Kaiser Darrins, but sold the second one over a year ago.

    Last week, I saw a Kaiser Darrin in ‘The Vault’ of the Peterson Automotive Museum (no photos allowed). First (and only) one I’ve ever seen up close and personal. I wonder if could be the sister ship in the photo above.

    We had been getting dire predictions of a big snow all week. That changed late this week to a snow/rain mix. The reality was, a very sparse, slight mist. While the turnout at Katie's was a bit light, we had some interesting stuff... I was the first car there!

    So did the guy with the viper purposely make his car look like a complete POS?
