Another month has come and gone which means it is time for yet again another Cars & Café. Unfortunately this month the Saturday happened to fall on the holiday weekend known as Labor Day. Most people in Minnesota that have a cabin know Labor Day weekend as a work weekend and I fall into that category. As I was cleaning up boats, many auto enthusiasts in Minneapolis were gathering for coffee and doughnuts. Oh and there were cars as well.
The weather was gorgeous (where as last month is was *ahem* crappy) and the cars flowed in. Luckily for us my friends Ross and Alex Bellus both were in attendance reporting back.
The good is a long list this month. The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake made an appearance again as did the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. The Bentley Continental SuperSport made an appearance along with three Porsche GT3 RS’s. These are all super but the Mazda Miata with a LS3 V8 shoved in it, well that really takes a special place in my heart. The amount of awesomeness that oozes from that is off the charts.
I’m told little to no head scratching vehicles made an appearance, so I will just have to take the word that there were few. I did hear about a VW Golf that had digital camouflage (what!?). Also, the above VW something or another that was chopped and had a small bed welded on on the back made an appearance. Oh and that VW something or another had full hydraulics in the front which the owner lowered down once parking. Also a BMW had a very unique sound system in the trunk that payed homage to BMW’s M division.
From the Super Seven to the Yenko Camaro, the cars were all there and the weather cooperated. Many thank’s to Ross and Alex Bellus for providing the photo’s. Until next month when the enthusiasts gather again for a cup of coffee and doughnuts, oh and the cars.
