Cars Of Europe Impress At August Caffeine & Gasoline

caffeine_and_gasoline_august_european_thumbnailWe were impressed with the collection of outstanding cars that rolled into the Griot’s Garage parking lot as we celebrated Europe’s finest automobiles at our August 2nd Caffeine & Gasoline. Rare, high-end rides from the likes of BMW, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, and Lamborghini dotted the parking lot and concours lawn.

There were also plenty of domestic rides on the scene and as always, free donuts and coffee were at the ready in the Indy Café. Caffeine & Gasoline is always free to the public and we encourage you to bring you own special car be it a driver, unfinished project, or concours quality competitor. Your next chance to get in on the action is September 6th, and the theme will be Italian Automobili. While the festivities may be ruled by Ferraris, we are hoping to see some sweet cars from Fiat, Maserati, and Alfa Romeo on the Garage grounds.

Mark the first Saturday of the month on your calendar. That’s when we put on our cruise-in car shows; and the show is on, rain or shine.
