Panera’s June ’11 Cars & Java (Coffee?) Event

Today, the last Saturday of the month in San Antonio, TX, is a monthly gathering of car people & their rides , unofficially called Cars & Coffee, or Cars & Caffeine, or whatever.  It’s a laid back, park what you brung, whether it be your daily driver or otherwise.  There were all sorts of car culture folk enjoying it all.  As always, click to enlarge the pix!

Today I estimated there were about 175 cars of many different marques.  I got there just after 8:30am & the place was already packed!  I was lucky to find a good spot & backed in behind Jason’s sweet, lime green Ultima Can-Am 720.  I had seen him & his car a few months ago, but I never got around posting the pix (sorry).  I am making up for that now…

Unlike most people who have high end, beautiful, go-fast cars, Jason is actually enjoying his to the fullest.  He has participated in 3  HPDEs (high performance driver education) events, so far this year.  He was even at speed in the wet!  Now that’s a learning experience, for sure!

I made use of Karlino to support my Independent AMSOIL Dealership business.

Karlino is doing his part to support Formula 1 coming to Austin, TX, to let people know it will be starting in 2012 – just ONE year away!.  I have been to Austin the past 2 weekends & plan for tomorrow, as well, to attend a European Grand Prix race viewing party.  Also, there will be a follow up meeting of the Austin Formula 1 Club.

I can’t tell you how long I spent trying to find the cheapest fully comprehensive car insurance policies before eventually deciding to stick with TPFT.

Racing Ready is keeping busy, busy, busy for all of us motorsports fans!
