Well my father-in-law wanted to go to Cars and Coffee before going home to Dallas, since he'd never been to the meet. TWIST MY ARM! My mother-in-law kept my youngest kiddo and Misty was asleep. Away we go! My Dad came over and my father-in-law, my Dad, my oldest kiddo Eddie and I piled into the Roady wagon and headed out to Leander at 10am.

Some neat cars! Many new ones and some cool surprises.

Here we go:

Enterence to show. This shows reccomended hill-country cruising roads for after the show. Neat!


We got to the show and they had us park with the new Acuras (?). Oh well, it was a good spot right up front.




The first car I saw was this gorgeous Regal T-type. I love these. It's a Grand National and a Regal Limited mixed together. Turbo engine, suspension, boost gauge, and steering wheel mixed with pillowed leather seats. Such a neat car!






This 64 Vette was also GOREGEOUS




A buddy from work, Eddie "Fast Eddie" Reyes came out in his black Vette


This was a CLEAN C3 Vette


This new Vette was also a looker


The Z-car club was there


This is a CLEAN 74 Cheyenne Super. This guy is a regular at the Satuday Cruise-In's and when I got my new stock chrome GM air cleaner lid for my Cutlass I gave him my old one. He loves it and it looks good under there!


The 442's were out in force today




Really pretty T-Bird


Clean Corvair




Fun at the show!


Friend from my local club came out in his 80's Iroc-Z powered Nova


The Porsche club was there again


I still like 928's


And there were a TON of VW's there today




This AMG Mercedes was all engine



SHARP new Camaro


Bentley Coupe



Aston Martin



Jaguar E-Type Roadster





Maserati - My Dad LOVED this car





The Chevy 427-engined Porsche was there


Lotus Esprit. Wonder if it turns into a submarine?


70 Chevelles



Wild Ducati


Unrestored Original Chevy


Gorgeous Caddy ragtop


Mitch came and stole his 76 from my carport. Trans is still leaking but it did fine and got lots of attention! Looked right at home with the other classic Caddys








Look at these 55 and 59 Caddys. WOW!






Hot Audi's and older Nissan Skyline GT-R



Look at this Buick 8! Wow!




NICE Hot Rod


New Nissan GT-R



Minis



NICE Buick Reatta. CLEAN!




Very original and sharp 240-Z






For Crovo, a hot-rod Subie


THIS MADE MY DAY! Laird showed up in my old Citation X-11. He's got it running great, and looking good too! He was mad though, they had him park it by the dumpster! Doh! No Respect!
I was tickled to see it there and it got a lot of attention!








Shelby GT Mustang


Local Ford group



Couple sharp Stangs


Brand new Stang


This was neat. Fairlane fastback



I liked this, black over tan leather. Sharp


Coupe more new Stangs



SHARP fastback



The other "wagon" at the show


Sharp 69 Stang pulling in



I remember these from when I was a kid. Taurus SHO with Yamaha engine and 5-spd



Cuda 360


Raptor....pretty wild!




Vettes




That gorgeous 426 Belvedere showed up. Sounds AWESOME!







Demon



Cool Willy's Jeep



The modern GTO club showed up



Great License Plate


I took a lot of pics of this Brazen Orange GTO for my buddy Ben that has the Sprice Red GTO in Jersey. GTO's were not offered with sunroofs, but this one has a dealer-installed Webasto power roof. Sorry for there being so many. It looked awesome. This guy was really cool, we talked for a while. Did you know of the 42,000 GTO's made between 04-06, that 17,000 have been totaled? No joke! That's wild!












The Can Am bike group showed up too



Clean C4 Vette


69 Chevelle SS


Hey I know that car



60's Dodge and 69 Chevelle


Just hanging out





Baja Bug


New Lotus


Clean 53 Chevy


Was a fun show today! Hope you liked the pics,

-Mike

Hell YES I enjoyed the pics Mike,only 17,000 out of 42,000 imported GTOs were totaled is no
surprise.Think about how many buyers have never driven a high performance rear wheel
drive car annd that explains it.Very eclectric collection of cars but thats usually the case with
all car shows.Out of all the cars the Regal T type is my favorite , right behind a certain white
RMW.How you keep that wagon so clean and drive it as much ass you do never ceases to
amaze me.Keep the pics coming Mike as your posts on weekends RULE buddy.Take it easy
Mike and take good care of Misty and I will take care of my 4 legged girl.Man she feels pretty
bad and wont even lay down without my feet touching her.But they are my children to me
and that will never change.Please understand I am not comparing my sick dog to Misty but
they are both my chidren who make getting out of bed each day much easier for me every
day!
Take Care All

The tail lights on that 55 Caddy were designed by my grandfather's brother. He was a design engineer at Caddy in the '50s and was the design lead on the 54 and 55 Caddy tail lights. Nice to see 'em in the wild for a change....

Nice pics, Mike, and a great little show. Can't wait for my next trip to Texas whenever that'll be...

Neat story about your great uncle John.I wish I knew more about my dads side of the family,
but he was adopted and only knows about as far back as his mom who died young.
Take Care

Hope the dog feels better Jim. I know how they become a part of the family. And cool story on the Caddy tail lights. Anyone remember where the gas cap is on those Caddys?

This is my favorite pic. It looks like my Roadmonster is about to chow down on some Japanese food!
