America’s Best Shines Bright At Caffeine & Gasoline

America’s Best Shines Bright At Caffeine & Gasoline

Mother Nature threw us a bit of a curveball on July 7th. While the surrounding area basked in the glow of a warm sunrise, Tacoma was overcast with a dastardly mist of rain falling. It only lasted 45 minutes and luckily didn’t seem to put too much of a damper on the morning. We had it going on with a great mix of American muscle cars, roadsters, and wicked hot rods on the deck, in the parking lot, and on the concours lawn.

Supercars Pave The Way At April Caffeine & Gasoline®

Supercars Pave The Way At April Caffeine & Gasoline®

Car shows and weather are dramatically opposing forces and they were on a collision course at our April Caffeine & Gasoline event. In what may well have been the biggest downpour in Caffeine & Gasoline® history, we were astonished to see so many people fight Mother Nature and swing by the store.

Hot Rods Rule February Caffeine & Gasoline®

Hot Rods Rule February Caffeine & Gasoline®

Mother Nature cooperated and cool cars were buzzing around Griot’s Garage like bees circling their hive. The theme of the event was hot rods, but the great thing about these monthly get-togethers is you never know what’s going to pull in the parking lot. Beyond the four-wheeled eye-candy, it’s the comradery and conversations that make C&G a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

Seahawks Dominate January Caffeine & Gasoline®

Even though the Seattle Seahawks were on the sidelines during the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season, we still celebrated the team and their fans known as 12s for 12th man at our January Caffeine & Gasoline®. We open the gates for Caffeine & Gasoline® on the first Saturday of every month and invite car lovers to roll their rides in and talk shop over free coffee and donuts.

Frankfurt’s Finest: Our 5 Favorite Rides From The Frankfurt Motor Show

Frankfurt’s Finest: Our 5 Favorite Rides From The Frankfurt Motor Show

The Frankfurt Motor Show is where automakers from around the world roll out their biggest and best pre-production prototypes and future-looking concept cars. We found ourselves in the internet rabbit hole (during our lunch break of course) and thought it would be fun to give you a taste and send you down the hole as well.

Blood, Sweat, And Wax – The Story Of Our Award-Winning Lamborghini Islero w/Video

As many of you may already assume, there is really no time of the year when we at Griot’s Garage aren’t prepping for or attending car shows all over the country. While all of them are awesome, some of them stick out due to the level of perceived significance within our hobby. The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is one such event.
