It’s that time of the year once again, where we dust off our houses, visit our friends and relatives and stuff our tummies full of delicious food. It is also the time to hold another Chinese New Year Edition of Cars & Kopi! It didn’t seem that long ago when we first had our CNY meet, time sure flew for most of the previous year and our little Cars & Kopi meet sure has grown! We even managed to get ourselves featured on Petrolicious as well as various other publications and automotive sites like Burnpavement and MatCanyon. As well as a short quip on Augustman! I think our plucky little meet has done good so far.
This time round i did up a little piece of artwork for the event and made a few prints to giveaway.
I also brought Chiro our lowered dog along, but he was more interested in plants.
Reaching the venue slightly earlier, i thought they would be plenty of parking spots available, but turned out there were already quite a number of cars in the carpark! Like this fleet of Saabs all nicely lined up.
Cars & Kopi veterans.
Chris’ beautiful Soul Olive.
As these EVOs start getting on in age, we see more and more stock standard examples being appreciated for what they are. This one was immaculate.
Another unmolested EVO, this time in red.
The Japanese battalion were out in brute force this time!
I quite like this S13
Nissan rear ends
A few Toyobarus showed up too!
More JDM metal
Probably the last Legacy Turbo on our litle island.
Lovely shiro pairing
Of course, even though there were many many Japanese cars around, Ze Germans were once again not to be outdone. We even managed to have a small selection of BMWs once again!
How do you like your 1Ms?
Well done E30!
Giselle34 has a new friend. (Also, our first Cars & Kopi lady driver attendee!)
If only our old E30 was still around to see this.
The Z4M, a true modern classic.
This generation of CEs have always looked good to me. Simple clean lines.
But this SE cabriolet was my personal highlight for the morning. Much beauty, such elegance!
And as always, the Porsche posse once again had a great showing.
Maybe one day a strange 944 can join in the fun?
Sneaky M4 hiding inside.
Chiro eventually found a car he liked, he has expensive taste.
German car, German doggie. Some say the term “Hot Dog” came from the Dachshund.
Air-cooled or Water-cooled?
Beautiful RS spec 993.
This blue/gold resto-mod was stunning, love those wheels.
996s are now started to get their long overdue appreciation too! Which is good news for owners, bad news for those like me who have to stand at the sides and watch prices creep up.
This new new Beetle had a sweet set of Enkei RS05s.
And neighbours from Ingolstadt.
Fiery little Fiat 850 Abarth was small in size but she was a screamer!
The Alfa boys were not around but this beautiful little Spider showed up. What a lovely shape.
There were also a few Brits hanging around.
This Capri is in need of some TLC!
Here’s our parting shot! Diversity not adversity!
