Event Coverage: Porsches Flock To Caffeine & Gasoline

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.

Celebrating Memorial Day One Race At A Time

Celebrating Memorial Day One Race At A Time

Memorial Day weekend has always had a tremendous amount of meaning in my family. Not only is it significant because we in America remember those who have died serving our country, but in the Griot house it was also all about the racing traditions that fall on the weekend. I’m talking about the Indy 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix.

Caffeine & Gasoline® Car Feature: Danny Gogue’s 1960 Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab

Caffeine & Gasoline® Car Feature: Danny Gogue’s 1960 Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab

When you see Danny Gogue next to his 1960 Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab all is right with the world. They belong to each other. You could see them on opposite sides of the parking lot and easily connect the dots between car and owner. We did. When we saw his Double Cab at our recent Caffeine & Gasoline® event we just knew.

Porsches Rule The Roost At Caffeine & Gasoline

Porsches Rule The Roost At Caffeine & Gasoline

The themes we create for Caffeine & Gasoline are meant to be loose fitting, mostly describing the makes of the cars in our Auto Display. But word must have gotten out because there were a ton of Porsches at our August 6th extravaganza.

A Father’s Dream 2016

A Father’s Dream 2016

I love Father’s Day. It’s a day I get to spend time with my kids and I think of how fortunate I am to have such a great mentor in my own father. My father is still larger than life to me and I’m so thankful to have a best friend in life that I look up to. This year though, I’ve stopped to ask myself, “How am I doing as a father?”

Exotics Bullish At Caffeine & Gasoline

Exotics were the theme of our April 2nd Caffeine & Gasoline and we populated the Auto Display with all the big names in the supercar game. The joint was jumping as the deck ramp were full of some outstanding rides. The weather was great and we plowed through 40 dozen donuts in the first hour.

Ferraris Front And Center At Caffeine & Gasoline

The joint was jumping as we paid tribute to the creations of Enzo Ferrari at our Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in car show at Griot’s Garage on March 7th. The Prancing Horse stable was represented by a fine mix of modern and vintage examples prominently positioned on the deck, in the parking lot, and on the concours lawn.

Triple McLaren Fire-Up At Caffeine & Gasoline

Triple McLaren Fire-Up At Caffeine & Gasoline

The engines were piercingly loud, the cars undeniably historic. Our 2014 Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in season went out with a bang… or make that an emphatic roar as we fired up 20 cylinders of McLaren racing glory. In total we conducted two rounds of fire-ups for crowds that were three to four people deep. It was intense.
