Happy Birthday Singapore! Or at least, Happy Belated! Our little nation celebrated her 50th birthday just a week ago which granted us a lovely 4-day weekend full of activities all over our sunny island. Incidentally, since the last Cars & Kopi meet was about 3 months ago, why not try having another one?
Of course since it was a long weekend, we sort of expected many to be away spending time with their loved one overseas and to be honest, we had no idea how many would turn up. Weather reports leading up to the morning were also pretty grim with thunderstorms predicted throughout the week. In the end, we needn’t have worried as the weather was amazingly great for a car meet and even though we anticipated a smaller showing, it turn out to be our biggest Cars & Kopi meet ever!
I managed to wake up earlier than expected and decided to head over ahead of schedule to catch other early risers. Since i was early, i took some shots of my “newly” re-acquired E34. I shall christen her, Giselle.
I also printed a number of commemorative SG50 stickers to give out to those attending. Turns out i totally underestimated the power of Singapore automotive enthusiasts!
Lovely 911 arrived soon after i parked up.
Soon,cars started trickling into the carpark, like this beautiful Austin Healey.
For the first time ever, we had enough BMWs to create our own little Bavarian corner. I shuffled Giselle over of course.
I hope you’ll agree that the E24 is one of BMW’s best looking cars ever penned, i sure think so.
Clean E30 just out from the workshop after a total refresh.
The E30 above is clean, but i think this E34 goes one step further.
Shortly after, this behemoth shows up.
And so our little Cars & Kopi meet has gone from a handful or cars (yes really, you could have counted the cars with 1 hand) sitting outside a Killiney Kopitiam to a Rolls Royce Phantom III and a Lexus LFA. I think we might be onto something here…
Another Lexus. No, that IS250 badge is a false flag.
This single-owner Ponton has probably one of the most valuable plates on the island.
An extremely patriotic MG although i the flag might be somewhat inverted. Ooopsies.
Another British Roadster, this time in the form of a Jag E-type. What’s with E-types and immaculate paintjobs? Flawless once again!
More modern interpretations of the British Sportscar.
Even Luigi turned up!
You can’t help but feel happy when looking at it, what a cheerful car.
The Mercedes gang turned up in force this time round. Towards the end of the meet, even a 190SL showed up, but i had to leave and sadly, didn’t get around to taking pictures of it.
The Bangle Fiat.
B-Road Outlaw FC.
No keeping the JDMs out as well!
A very colorful lineup!
The Honda FD2R, there used to be so many roaming our streets, now i hardly see them.
A very very rare car indeed! An unmolested EVO 9! Sitting alongside a lovingly looked after Prelude.
Miata’s always the answer! I wonder when will be the day one of the new NDs join in.
And yes, the Air-cooleds, big thanks to them for always supporting our meets!
White 964 dumped on BBS LMs, what more do you want?
Very good looking!
Still want one, still can’t afford one. Imma gonna buy me an Xbox-One and a copy of Need For Speed instead i guess.
Ciao Bella! Always love classic Alfas. One of them was for sale too!
Our meet this time round also had a lovely showing of Air-cooleds of a different variety!
Nostalgic Japanese metal getting some attention! Unfortunately, because i was just too busy running about distributing stickers and chatting with friends and attendees, these are all the pictures i managed to grab, there were really just so many cars that i could only pay attention to a handful. Now the questions is, where do we go from here?
