Saturday 10/11 was the last gathering of Canepa Cars and Coffee until they resume in April 2015. We drove our Datsun Roadsters to this final event and there was a superb turnout of cool cars. As in the past, Canepa never disappoints. Here are few highlights and check the gallery for even more pictures.
The brisk run up HW 17 to Scotts Valley is always exhilarating, especially on a weekend sans traffic! We had a blast chasing our fellow roadster owner and friend Mike B in his pretty 1967.5 SPL311:
When we arrived, Canepa’s parking lot was already filled to the brim. Mandatory Datsun content: We found another roadster and a 240z with ZCG license plate frame!
Mopar Madness! Panther Pink Challenger, Limelight green Superbird and Plum Crazy Challenger remind us of the coolest colors to come from the factory!
In an absolute sea of 997 GT3 Porsche’s these stood out: 997 TT on Volk TE37s, RUF 993, and gorgeous 356:
Canepa as usual were gracious enough to open their entire facility to the public. Touring the showrooms and shop areas with soft pretzels and strudels in hand was a great way to start the morning!
Back in the parking lot, more interesting cars show up. This Ford hot rod had the coolest cup-holder I’ve ever seen:
Below L to R: This little Fiat Abarth was setup for dirt rallying. 1 of 2 super clean BMW E30 M3s. Honda N600! My favorite Testarossa, 512TR:
Finally, I had the pleasure of driving back down HW 17 with this Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. The lines on this car are amazing, and it was quite nerve wracking (for the owner too I’m sure) to snap some rolling shots of this multi-seven figure piece of history!
I was super stoked to get a peace sign from the driver, Enjoy The Ride!
Many more pics in the gallery. See you at Canepa Cars and Coffee next spring!
