2018 Katie's Cars & Coffee Thread - Great Falls, VA


Recommended Posts

You can't ask for much better weather than we had this morning, considering it's the first of December. Low-to-mid-thirties, at 5:00AM, with no wind - it was actually pretty nice. Katie's was certainly not as crowded as July or August, but that's perfectly OK with me, considering the general quality of vehicles and people there today.

Sorry to say, the group I was joining to drive in the Middleburg, VA Christmas Parade has been rained out.

Last year, I drove with the group, and had a great time. I made one error: I decorated my Seven with a garland made of red and green tinsel. It 'shed', and I'm still finding small pieces of tinsel everywhere! Below is a picture of the Seven last year. Then, see what I did for this year...

Cold and clear today - it was 21F on my way to Katie's this morning. The good news - no wind, no rain, and no salt on the roads yet. A pretty good turnout today. The Middleburg Christmas parade we were supposed to participate in was called off last week, so I still had the Christmas lights on my Seven.

This week at Katie's:

 

The good - it warmed up considerably. It was 42 degrees when I got to the parking lot.

The not so good - a steady rain, all morning. (The DC area has set an all-time record for rainfall this year.)

 

Still, a bunch of us got together, had breakfast, talked cars, told jokes -- it's what we look forward to, each week.

Katie's Cars & Coffee founder, Bob Morris just acquired this MG Type L. Supercharged straight-six. Terrific details on this car - that's a form-fitting tonneau surrounding the bucket seats. The Brooklands windscreens behind the folding 'full' windscreen seem to be a 'belt-and-suspenders' design!

The last Katie's Cars & Coffee of 2018, but I'm afraid I didn't drive anything interesting today, since the roads were still wet. Luckily, others brought a nice variety of interesting cars. Chuck Stone drove his Westfield.
