Cars & Kopi – Sunday’s Best

Hello 2016! Hello to another Sunday of Cars & Kopi. While the last meet was held just a few weeks ago, a friend of ours decided to put together another one over the New Year weekend. So i started up my car, went for a short morning cruise and joined in for another morning of automobiles and my favourite Hot Chocolate at Dome Cafe.

It had been a very wet weekend with rain continuously pouring down just a day (and night) before. Luckily for us, the clouds cleared just before daybreak, which made for a rather enjoyable and cooling drive in the morning. Turned out, quite a number of other drivers didn’t mind driving their cars out as well.

E-Type and Mini arrived early.

The local air-cooled contingent had a great showing.

I particularly liked this Guards red Targa.

True story, when i was just a young boy, the Targa was my favourite amongst all the 911 body variations. But i guess it WAS the 80s and everything Targa and T-topped was probably cool. I even had a 1/24 Targa that would make engine noises when you pushed the rear wheels in. Anyway…

With so few left (and sold) on our island, this might be the most ever gathered together in one single location!

A number of Rotaries were also in the carpark for their own mini-meet.

Then one of these babies pulled in. I’ve always loved the 308/328 shapes. My childhood hero cars and the first Ferraris i ever laid my eyes upon.

Defender Double Cab from our opening shot. Unfortunately, even though cars were still arriving (there was a sweet grey S13 i just missed), i had to leave shortly after this for the year’s first Service in Church. Until next time, here’s to another successful year of Cars & Kopi!
