Wanted to thank you guys for helping to make C&C Williamsburg an on-going and growing success. I think we have done rather well considering a mere eight months ago (7 months if you only count events) from nothing - that we very well could break the 100 visitors at a single event ceiling this coming weekend. And to think we only had 55 in January. My goal is to deliver 150 cars to the lot by some fine C&C morning in June.

I know folks can't come to every event, life gets in the way... But thanks to those members here that have been to so many. I'll strive to keep it innovative and fresh... You folks just keep showing up when you can.

See you on Saturday - I think you will be mildly surprised... Latest word on the street is - bring a chair... Its going to be fun watching them all roll in. Darkpath

Ouch! Sorry about that....I, for one, am glad to see how the event has grown. I wish I had missed last month and this one, but as of right now Im definitely back for March. Work travel always kills me at the beginning of the year.

I broke down after leaving the C&C this morning about 2 miles from my house. My belt tensioner broke and my belt went flying, made a hell of a racket. Need to order a new tensioner then I can check to see if anything else broke. I need to figure out something a little stronger for more durability.

No offense intended... Getting the word out is the hard part for any new endeavor. I think after yesterday though that we can say the lions-share of advertising the existence of a new Cars and Coffee event in Williamsburg is behind us. For those of you who missed it. Final call on the count yesterday was 117 sedans, classics, roadsters, & Trucks including Corvettes, Ferraris, Mustangs, Vipers, BMWs, A Bentley, A Lotus, A ZCar contingent, and that is just to name a few. Look forward to seeing you again next month. We'll save you a place!

Thanks for the Support! Darkpath

a lot of photos have been put up on the Cars & Coffee facebook page. If some of you are on facebook but have not yet friended in... now would be a great time to do so. The ability to mass message updates to members of the page makes getting news to folks as simple as sending a single email. One that goes to all members simultaneously. Don't forget, we are now on the web. I'll put the URL in my Album so you don't always have to come to this post to get it... Thanks for the support.

Default Almost time...

Hello all, Mid March is finally here and its almost time for Cars & Coffee ~ Williamsburg. Hope you are all planning to come. Green Man - Hope the repairs are complete! Looking forward to seeing that Vette again this month!

We're expecting another huge turn out this month. at least 3 clubs have indicated their intentions of using Cars & Coffee to begin their day, before heading off on their days Club event. We're hearing Mustangs, Vipers, and Zcar of Richmond will be rolling in - in mass. Hope all you Corvette fellas who've recently been on work related travel are safely home and tuned for the event!

See you Saturday - 8-10 AM

The 10 day forecast is for partly sunny and 65!
In my book - that's Perfect!

My Vette is still down, I haven't had time to work on it since the last gathering. My AC belt is jammed behind the balancer and it has to be removed to get the belt out. I will have to remove the steering rack and a few other things to get access to the balancer but don't have anytime until this weekend.

I am planning on showing up in my pickup, but will be parking off to the side.

That's what I call loyalty to the Cars & Coffee CAUSE.... You are the man - albeit without your steed... just the same.

Sounds good...the Vipers showed up in force with about 16 or so. The event itself was huge, but only 5 Vettes.

(From the C&C Facebook page)

I want to personally Thank All who helped make the March Cars & Coffee ~ Williamsburg event a huge success. Though the morning broke cloudy with what looked like a threat of rain, by 8:15 the sun sent the clouds scurrying out of Williamsburg, paving the way for a perfect day! Previous event attendance records were shattered yesterday! A count revealed 155+ cars/owners made the Williamsburg Premium Outlets "Home for the morning " as wave upon wave of more vehicles arrived to represent their make/model in grand fashion. An enthusiast in the market for horse-power could have completed their research in a single visit to Cars & Coffee ~ Williamsburg - March 2011.

Finally, I want to commend all for respecting the No Rev/No burnout policy, a safety consideration that guarantees our continued local welcome and support!

Thanks again... Event Coordinators & Sponsors...
