In a special edition of the monthly Cars and Coffee event today in Austin, TX. This was the second special edition of Cars and Coffee Austin this year, the first being the Esotico Italiano car show featuring Valentino Balboni.
Mike Brewer of The Discovery Channel show Wheeler Dealer was the special guest. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate, and between the rain and a wind chill of well under 50 degrees, Mike probably thought he was home in Britain.
Nonetheless, he graciously talked to attendees and owners and showed us the “special relationship” car enthusiasts have around the world.
Discovery was filming material for a future show, so unlike the regular monthly Cars and Coffee show, the displays today were intended to be limited to muscle cars of the 60s and 70s. Then, given the rain, the show was opened up to anybody durable enough to stand the cold and a wide range of cars represented Austin, TX to Mike.
And given the threat of even worse weather on the way, the show was moved into several floors of the host site, instead of the usual open lot, so photography was very difficult.
An abbreviated gallery of images follows – we held out as long as our hot coffee lasted!
