The September Cars & Coffee Rochester was a Great Hit!

The September Cars & Coffee Rochester was a Great Hit! The sensational weather brought out a crowd of car enthusiasts representing a great cross section of vehicles including rare custom hot rods, custom show cars, rat rods, motorcycles, trucks, classic cars, preserved cars, trucks, race cars and of course the superbly restored muscle cars in the Museum. Folks snapped up the discounted memorabilia to support the Scholarship Fund and East Coast Hot Rod gave out goody bags and stickers. The buzz is that this may not be the last show of the year! The Hosts of Cars & Coffee Rochester are considering expanding the schedule of Events! What do you think? Give us some feedback on the FaceBook Page for Cars & Coffee Rochester or email us here.

Cars & Coffee Rochester August 2014 had beautiful weather!

Had a great time at Cars & Coffee Rochester, on Saturday August 30th 2014! Members of the Syracuse Corvette club cruised in, a truck from Louisiana, folks from Buffalo, Geneseo, and all over Northern NY met to enjoy each others rides and the pristine cars in the Rochester Auto Museum. The darling of the day was the lime light green Plymouth Superbird, rated #1 Condition Mopar All Star Winner Best of all Birds.

“Rock City Sammich” and the Smoothies trucks provided drinks and nourishment, and the weather was absolutely perfecto! Check out the photos on the Cars & Coffee 08/2014 page. Make sure you reserve Saturday September 27th to come to the final Cars & Coffee Rochester of 2014!
