With the last Cars & Kopi held rather recently, we didn’t think another meet would happen so quickly! But with a really nice long weekend holiday for celebrating the Lunar New Year, an impromptu decision was made to meet up for some automotive chit chat over breakfast at the usual spot.
Invites were quickly sent out via Facebook a few days ahead of the event and thinking that there might not be a significant turnout, i dubbed it a “mini meet”, which meant it was a fantastic surprise when i arrived at Dempsey on a nice warm Saturday morning and saw plenty of cars already parked up.
One of my favorites that morning was this pair of lovely red oldies. The Boat-tail Alfa being especially enticing.
What a lovely pure shape and design language.
Che bella macchina!
Also lovely was its parking buddy mini.
The Alfa brigade showed up with reinforcements this time.
BMWs usually get outnumbered in these morning meets so i gotta try and fix that.
Not quite what i understand “Pussy magnet” to mean.
I should really drive my car out more often.
There were plenty of Stuttgart’s finest…
…but you just can’t beat the aesthetic purity of the classics.
More air-cooled love.
They might share the same name and engine layout but these two cars cannot be any more different.
Modern day GT3 is pure speed machine.
Speaking of pure speed machines…
…A contingent of GTRs lined a row of parking lots.
Interesting textured effect on the bonnet of the black V-Spec II.
Yes i really like GTRs.
JDMs from an earlier era side by side.
The B-road slaying FC.
Wild FD also appeared. This one is still undergoing a rebuild. Lovely Advan Racing wheels.
Powered by Honda.
Something that we don’t see very often on our roads, Mitsubishi’s Twin Turbo 3000GT, or GTO depending on where you live.
Stock and sweet Subaru WRX STI Spec-C. Love that roof scoop.
There were a few classic VWs around too!
And since we are VWs, I’m pretty sure a highlight for many was the appearance of this very beautiful Karmann Ghia.
It was mint!
I love the grey cloth inserts.
The bodywork looked flawless.
Sat next to the Karmann Ghia was an MG TB. (I think)
I know totally nothing about these cars so do let me know if i identified it wrong.
Nice detail with the haversack though.
A slightly more modern MG looking rather diminutive by today’s standards.
Similarly British but on the opposing end of the power scale.
A few quirky Saabs turned up as well.
Lovely R107. I think these cars are aging rather well and are now deservingly getting more recognition from classic car enthusiasts.
I remember seeing a number of these when i was growing up.
They used to feel very unobtanium to me when i was a child and while current prices means it’s possible to work towards one, i have the feeling such prices will not last for long.
The last remaining ur quattro sitting pretty in Chinese New Year colors.
I think this meet went to the Germans.
With each meet seemingly outdoing the last, i really wonder what lies ahead for our little Cars & Kopi meets. Here’s hoping for more!
