Cars And Coffee - ATL - We need to crash this event!!

Post by atye on Tue May 04, 2010 2:44 pm

Anyone who is a real "car freak" knows about the almost legendary "Cars and Coffee" events held in California. Well, they are now having them in Atlanta! This is a big, free car show that attracts a lot of folks and a lot of different kinds of cars. Anything from Lamborghini's and Maseratis, to Porsche's and BMW's. Over 50 classes for the show.

Here are a few pics from VWVortex: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4873201

I think that it would be great if the G.A.S. "crashed" the party one weekend. Let's show the car fans of Atlanta how big the VW scene is. Very Happy

3rd Sundays April - December at the Avenue East Cobb. It seems that it is an early morning event, around 9am is what they say the peak time is.

What do you think?

WoW this sounds real kool well thanks for this heads up. It looks like this months 3rd Sunday is the May 16. So G.A.S. Is in for this cruise in. Let's see if we can get all the clubs to come on out in there club shirts and if you don't have club shirts wear a G.A.S. Or GeorgiaDubs Tee shirt. Let's real invade this this thing the right way guys. We need to come up with a time and spot so we can really roll in together Dub style. So who's in? Any clubs feel like riding out early morning for this one

Post by atye on Fri May 07, 2010 2:54 pm

I told a friend of mine about my posting here calling for a VW "crashing" of the event. He attended one of the original events in California and here is what he had to say:

Yeah, that whole "crash the party" can really f**k up an event. The one I went to in California was "crashed" by a bunch of S2000 owners, who brought their relatively stock S2000's and took up a bunch of space, so that a lot of iron that was actually interesting got turned away. The organizers, such as there were, were rightly pissed.

I'm no expert, but having been to one and having seen pics from others: If it ain't rare/ interesting AND nice, stay home. Projects need not apply.

That said, there were almost as many interesting cars in the parking garage next to the event.

Sorry if I'm sounding like a dick, I'm just real excited for this to be happening in the ATL, and would hate to see it turn sour by bad behavior by one group or another. Just saying Smile

So, nobody wants the VW crowd to get a bad "rep", that wasn't my idea when I suggested this. Maybe when everyone gets there they can park in a corner or on the side of the parking lot, away from the main action so as not to disrupt the flow of the event. I'm sure that a ton of folks will still come by and look at all of the bad-ass VW's that show up but no one will be upset that the little cars "hogged" too much real estate. What do you guys think?

Yeah, some of our "Project" cars might not be appreciated, there usually are finished cars (nicely detailed) parked at the event
