    Minneapolis, MN, Cars & Coffee First Saturday of the Month 8am-11am. 2011 Season!



    Hey guys,

    It's hard to believe that we are going into year 4 of C&C. This event has grown from a small gathering at Caribou with 30-40 cars to a monthly showing of 500+ cars inside the Motorplex on any given First Saturday.
    April may be a little colder for us this year, but the extended forecast shows sun every day from now to next Saturday which means that most of this snow and ice will be gone by then.
    In order to keep things organized, please try to arrive as early as possible (the event starts at 8am) so that you can get a parking spot. We have gotten to the point where we have to turn people away or ask them to park in spectator parking when they arrive after 9:00 because there is no room. There is some extra parking this year, so take a look at the map and follow the direction of the people that will be helping you park.
    Please keep the burnouts and hard launches for the track. We need to be respectful of the property and our host as well as the garage owners that allow us to have our event at their place.



    Location:
    The location is the Minneapolis AutoMotorplex located at:
    8200 Audobon Rd. Chanhassen MN
    Please check out the Motorplex’s website for map and other details: http://www.automotorplex.com/
    For people traveling east of 494 we would encourage you to take the Crosstown (62) extension (HWY 5) the where it becomes 212, exit on Powers Blvd (Which is 1 exit past 101) go right, drive approx 500 ft and turn left on Lyman (at the light) travel approximately 1 mile, turn right on Audubon and we will be 1.1 mile on the left.















    Please mark your calendars with the following 2011 dates:

    April 2nd
    May 7th
    June 4th
    July 2nd
    August 6th
    September 3rd
    October 1st

    I have to get up for this in a few hours and I'm wide awake. Gotta get there at 6:30 to meet with the rest of the crew that will be working the events in 2011. I worked it last year, covering the BMW area. It's a lot of running around but tons of fun.

    Record turnout yesterday with over 550 cars and 2000+ people in attendance! We were full at 8:30AM (gate opens at 8:00AM).

    Pics I took:
    GTR that had CF hood, fenders, doors, roof, rear valance and more. Not to mention all the sick performance mods. Amazing car.


    There were a few Aston Martins this month. I love the front on these cars.












    Note the passenger!







































    Wish I could have spent more time in the Porsche and American cars. I missed getting a shot of a GT3 RS and a couple GT3's.
