It’s been a few months since we last held a Cars & Kopi meet, truth be told i really did think the last meet we had back during the Chinese New Year holidays would have been the final one due to some unwanted shenanigans occurring, or at least, the last one i’d be part of putting together.
But i guess you can’t keep car enthusiasts down for too long and with more and more people waiting for another Cars & Kopi meet to happen. We figured it was about time to dust off the old jalopy and have a mid year reunion, Cars & Kopi style!
With memories of some unappreciated “hooning” occurring at the last meet, we went somewhat incognito this time. All invites being sent through word of mouth (or word of whatsapp), and no publicising through facebook. The initial idea was to do a “Back to our roots” meet at Killiney Coffeeshop, where it all began, but as the day approached and worries of an inadequate number of parking lots looming, we decided to head over and try out a new location. Parkland Green,
East Coast Park.
By the time i arrived, quite a nice number of cars had already parked up, JDMs being JDMs, were all rather early.
Will the M2 ever capture the cult status heart like the 1M Coupe has? Only time will tell.
The Mitsubishi Mirage and Subaru Legacy Turbo, both extremely rare cars on our shores. (We think the Mirage is a 1 of 1)
Boosted Flat 6, meet boosted Flat 4.
Great looking pair. Does the 993 Cabriolet look familiar? We were lucky enough to have had a drive in it!
Now sporting a set of delicious wheels.
Another 911 on sweet alloys. This 964 on BBS LMs, quite possibly the best wheels ever made… in the World…
With a more cosy turnout of cars, it was nice to be able to slowly take in the details. I like looking at stickers, i think it’s fun to see what people add to their cars.
Speaking of wheels, we took a closer look at this Beetle we previously saw at an earlier meet. Still on its cool Enkei RS05RRs.
Turned out to be a really cool car with it pretty much most of its rear insides stripped out! The stuffed dog was a nice touch.
Another 1 of 1 in Singapore, this stately Nissan President. Built to battle in the ultra niche understated high luxury market segment in Japan. It’s chief rival? The Toyota Century. Ultimately, the Century prevailed, but by no means does that make the President any less glorious.
Cars & Kopi is a strange meet where flashy neon/chrome/pink/violet/rainbow Lamborghinis are rarely present.
It is also a meet where you can spot 2 fully original EVO 9s sitting next to each other! And that F430 Scuderia as well.
Needs no introduction i reckon.
A little less horsepower but with just as much style, a number of lovely classic Alfas dropped by.
Modern GT Coupe (with a nice burbly 3.2 V6) was all curves next to the handsome and finely creased Lexus.
The old and the new. This is what it’s all about.
British sports cars always have a fine following here at Cars & Kopi.
Still wish i have one.
This is probably only the second time i’ve seen a Europa S locally.
The Saab crew made a pretty grand entrance together (and exit).
Lovely old dame above unfortunately had a slight mishap at the carpark entrance. Hopefully it will all be sorted.
Rounding off our coverage, a selection of German Fräuleins. Till we “meet” again!
