  1. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. I have an S3, and would be happy to have you come look at mine. I am in Oakton, VA - not far from the junction of 66 and 50, where Fair Oaks Mall is. We can arrange to meet - robert_collum@hotmail.com --Bob Collum
  2. The following message was issued by Katie's owner, Mike Kearney, on Facebook last night, 07/17/20: In the interest of public health, we are erring on the side of caution and to avoid large gathering of people in our community, we will be closing Katie's Cars and Coffee until further notice. There will be no displaying of cars permitted. Thank you for your support! - Mike Kearney, Director Please respect his wishes, and keep his employees, and yourselves, safe! If I hear of re-opening, I will announce it here. (Katie's and the Old Brogue are still open for lunch and dinner -- just not for C & C.)
  3. That's correct - it's a Kaiser-Darrin. The attached picture shows the two identical K-Ds a local guy used to own. (He has since sold one.) Great condition, and a cool-looking car! The doors that slide into the front fender are the most eye-catching feature. --Bob Collum
  4. I still have not gotten word that Katie's is ready to open up for Cars & Coffee, so here's another look back at previous events. I will let you know when Mike K says it's appropriate to start gathering for Saturday cars & coffee again. Stay safe! --Bob Collum
  5. Sure. That's a creation of a Park Service Policeman who goes by the name of 'SpeedyCop'. He makes vehicles for 24 Hours of Lemons races. We've seen his twin-engine Cessna (with no wings), built on a Toyota van chassis, and he has an upside-down California Highway Patrol Camaro that he drives upside down, head-and-shoulders out above the bottom of the car. --Bob Collum
  6. Yes, it's been a very long time without an 'official' Katie's Cars & Coffee - and it will still be a while before they are ready to host the full-blown event again. Please be patient. We encourage you to have breakfast or dinner at the Old Brogue; they need your business. I will announce here when they are ready for the throngs that accompany C & C. In the meantime, here are some notable memories from past Katie's: --Bob Collum
  7. We are still waiting for Katie's Cars & Coffee to re-open; best guess is currently sometime in July. I will let you know when they are ready. The restaurant is now open, but limited in capacity; they are NOT ready for a full-on Katie's crowd, so please do not jump the gun on this. Rob Smith provided me with pictures for this week's Best of Katie's. Thanks, Rob! --Bob Collum
  8. Katie's Cars & Coffee is still officially closed. I will let you know when the owner says they are ready to resume. Until then, here are some memorable vehicles from Katie's past Saturdays: --Bob Collum
  9. Here we are, at the end of May, and Katie's Cars & Coffee is still closed. As I mentioned before, I have communicated with Mike K., the owner of Katie's, and he is not yet ready to welcome Cars & Coffee back to his place. As soon as I have updated information on this, I will post it here. In the meantime, in the absence of a physical get-together, I offer you some pics from the past. This week's guest photographer is Mike Swiek, who provided all these photos. It goes without saying (at least by me) that this week's photo quality is way better than usual. Thanks, Mike! --Bob Collum
  10. Still no Katie's Cars & Coffee, due to social distancing requirements. I will let you know here, when I hear the restrictions are lifted. (Unlikely to be soon!) In the meantime, here are some pics from previous year gatherings. Thanks to Mike Swiek for providing some better-quality photos than I can muster. --Bob Collum
  11. Looks like at least two more weeks of social distancing. I will let you know here, when Katie's Cars & Coffee is back open. Until then, here are some notable cars from the past... --Bob Collum
  12. Looks good! Don't you wish you always doubled your money when you sold a car? (I sure do!) --Bob Collum
  13. As we continue practicing social distancing, we all long for the day that we can get back out and see friends at car events. Until that can happen safely, I will continue posting pics from previous events. Feel free to post some of your favorites, too! My friends and I have found it useful to have weekly video conference calls, to keep in touch. Take care of yourself, and your loved ones! --Bob Collum
