Taking a Look Back: First Show of the Year

Despite how eventful this year has been, some of the photos I’ve taken have not progressed to being sorted and edited until very recently. One of these events, which I attended back in January, was a local car show called the 2015 Series Open Car & Truck Show at “The Shops at Wiregrass,” a small outdoor mall in the tiny nearby town of Wesley Chapel, Florida. Despite this being the first I’d heard of this car show series, there was a pretty nice showing of cars with a good variety, which I’ve collected to share with you after the jump. (more…)

More spark than a Spark: My Seat-of-the-Pants Review of the 2014 Mini Cooper Clubman

As hard as I tried to get the Miata done on Superb Owl Sunday, I was still a couple of hours away from it being road worthy, and I didn’t want to rush it and risk messing something up. Since my wife had jury duty the next day (yesterday), we rented a Chevy Spark for me to drive to work. Walking up to the Enterprise rental car office, I noticed that I didn’t see any Chevy Sparks in the parking lot. As I was walking, I thought to myself “It must be out back or something. I hope I don’t have to wait for someone else to return it before I can leave. Hey, that’s a nice little Mini. It must be an employee’s.” Only, it wasn’t and I didn’t have to wait. They were all out of Sparks, so they gave me the Mini Clubman with no upcharge. Win!

June 2011 Cars & Coffee at duPont REGISTRY

I’m finally getting around to posting last month’s Cars & Coffee event from three weeks back. Things got derailed a bit when, the day after attending this and an Evo meet at S&R Performance (post on that to come), I woke up with a bad case of what my wife thinks was heat exhaustion. No more 2 event weekends without carrying some water.

Anyways, on this outing to Cars & Coffee, I arrived 20 minutes later than last time (made a wrong turn and had to go over the bridge twice), and had to park outside the event, more over towards the exotics. As a result, this time I’ve got many more photos of the high end rides for you to see after the jump.

Straight Stance: Low Low Flush Show V.1

To quote the title of the old Monty Python spinoff, “and now for something completely different.” As I mentioned previously, a few weeks back when I went to Cars & Coffee at duPont REGISTRY, there was a stance car show the very same day, just a few hours later. This isn’t the typical performance-focused content that I feature, but this was the first meet of this particular title/series, so I decided to check it out. (more…)
