Cars and coffee a recent phenomenon that brings both car owners and admirers of all things automotive together, with a warm beverage and plenty of craic.
No car show could ever bring together such an eclectic mix of vehicles. From supercars to classic cars, scooters to superbikes and everything in between.
One of the most recent events was held at Ceramitech at the foot of the Craigantlet Hills in Dundonald and hosted by The Driven NI Club. Being a charity event in aid of Fight for Alfie this particular cars and coffee morning was incredibly well attended despite being bitterly cold and overcast.
These events have become increasingly popular over the past number of years and are great for families also. Many young children nowadays have a fascination with cars so it lets them get up close to models they wouldn’t possibly normally get to see sitting static and it also lets everyone have a good look around and chat to the owners.
Generally these meets tend to be on a Sunday and only last for a couple of hours so great if you want to pop along then head off on a roadtrip or a bite of Sunday lunch afterwards.
Many owners will have grown up in the car park scene and being now of a slightly older generation and possibly family men/woman it allows them to still share their passion for cars and introduce the new generation to the automotive world.
So if you want to see what these events are all about why not keep an eye out for a cars and coffee event near you, you will be sure to see everything from the likes of a £250 Austin Metro right through to something more special like a £250,000 Porsche.
