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.

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.

July Caffeine & Gasoline Celebrates American Muscle

We are keeping House of Donuts in business. Our July 1 Caffeine & Gasoline required 70 dozen to satisfy the sweet teeth of the throngs of enthusiasts in attendance. That’s right 840 of the holey cakes of joy passed hands. The donuts and untold gallons of coffee fueled the conversations from the Indy Café to the Concours Lawn.

Event Coverage: Porsches Flock To Caffeine & Gasoline

We packed in the Porsches on June 3rd as Stuttgart’s finest highlighted our monthly Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in car show and all-around hangout session. The theme refers more to the contents of our Auto Display than acting as a call for Porsches to show up… but they did. Click through for some eye candy.
