Happy New Year everyone! 2014 sure has blitzed by rather quickly and with the twinkling of an eye, another year has come to an end and a new one is beginning. It had been a fruitful and extremely eventful year for myself and i hope it was just as good or even better for you. But regardless of how 2014 was, i wish everyone a blessed year ahead and may the kind God of automotive pleasures shine on you and your loved ones and keep you safe on the roads throughout 2015.
With a couple of holidays before the work week starts, what better way to kickstart the year than dragging ourselves out of bed on an early weekend morning for another Cars & Kopi meet! Especially since the last one was almost three months ago.
Though the number of cars that turned up were not as plentiful as the meet we had previously, as you can see from the opening pictures, there was never going to be a lack of quality.
A personal highlight for me was the E46 M3 CSL. Some say it’s one of three, some say it’s one of two. All we know is, it’s a unicorn in these here parts of the World and it’s the stuff of dreams. (Mine at least)
Those three little letters at the back and side flanks maketh magic they do.
Sasha Grey ’36 tried sliding up next to the CSL.
Though the CSL pretty much did it for me, i’m pretty sure for many others, it was the presence of this lovely black Porsche 356. They don’t make elegant cars like these anymore.
It seems you’ll never roll around alone when you are in an Air Cooled Porsche, as various iterations of the 911 slowly lined up alongside.
Or do you prefer a more modern take of the rear-engine theme?
Choose your poison. R32 Godzirra or 993 Blackbird?
Another modern interpretation of an Air Cooled icon.
Cheeky Barely Legal stickers. (NSFW link) 😉
Elsewhere, a small but delectable trio of Italians showed up. All rocking 3.2 V6s.
Does size matter when it comes to Motoring pleasure? Lotus thinks so.
On the other end of the power spectrum, a striking papaya orange MP4-12C.
Another E46 M3, in non-CSL guise but still desirable.
The always good looking Z4M rounding up the German contingent.
For those into Japanese metal, these two Japanese Nostalgic Cars might be your flights of fancy.
Toyotas from different eras but both of them iconic. Which would you pick if you had the chance? Celica or Hachiroku?

This Prelude was just recently rebuilt (DIY) by the owner. Kudos!
The only non-pistonhead at the meet, the B-road warrior FC.
Speaking of Lone Rangers, this Saab was also the only Griffin in attendance since the rest of its crew was away on a local drive.
With most of our tummies filled with yummy breakfast and caffeine, it was time for most of us to head home.
And here’s hoping for similar good weather for the next Cars & Kopi! Thanks to everyone for dropping by. Till we meet again! Next stop, Tokyo Japan!!!
