Caffeine and Octane – August 2014

Posted on

This time, the weather was great. Although it rained the night before, the roads were mostly dry before I headed out to C&O. The ride was a little more dangerous that I wanted it to be though – had two does (in different places along the waY0 stand right on the edge of the road looking like they were going to jump out in front of me. Luckily for me, they stayed there, blinded by my HIDs on my motorcycle. I got there at 6am, and the main lot was already packed.

Unfortunately, some of the Nissan and Miata guys decided to park where the exotics always park, leaving no room for the cars that people actually come to see. Most of the Lamborghini and Ferrari guys left when they couldn’t get any parking. Just a month ago, people on FaceBook were complaining that there is a Caffeine & Exotics show that doesn’t let non-exotics in, yet here we see the need for a show like that now.

Luckily we did have a couple of special appearances by a couple of rare Jaguars – including an extremely rare XJ220. I snapped as many photos of it as I could get, but there was a crowd around it the whole time. A ’71 XKE convertible also made it there.

KBS brought out his LS1-powered RX7 FD widebody, and someone else brought out a clean Mustang foxbody with a very clean Coyote-swap as well.

Full resolution photos are up on my Flickr account here.

  1. So, let me get this straight, there are assigned spaces? Or just for the cars “people want to see”? If I went to that show, I’d want to see some Miatas. I find Miatas are rarely driven by uptight, self-important douchebags who think the money they spent on their car entitles them to some sort of hierarchical status greater than that they would have achieved by NOT spending the money.

    1. No, there are no “assigned spaces”; however, when a group has been parking in the same place from the very beginning of the event being held in a specific location, and they always show without fail, who would you think the “self-important douchebags” are – the exotic gearhead owners, or the guys who show up extra early to try to take the spots?
      I have no problems with Miatas – I like them just fine; however, I have the ability to recognize that the masses do not crowd around a Miata with its bumper held on by zipties, yet they do come to see Aventadors, 430s, etc. Caffeine and Octane is an event where the masses come to see all types of car, but flock to the exotics. It has always been that way, ever since the Avenues days.
      Now, if a group of Lamborghinis and Ferraris had shown up at the Miatas At The Gap event and blocked off the road for their own use, I would say the same thing about them – it would be the wrong time and wrong place for them. I expect to see Miatas, not exotics, at a Miatas At The Gap type event.
      C&O is for everyone, but don’t kid yourself and think that people are getting up at 5am to come see a group of Miatas (except for Miata owners).
      Oh, one more thing – look at past coverage when it really rained – no Miatas showed up, and only about 10-20 cars showed total, but 2 of them where Lamborghinis. They showed because they are car guys – and if you took the time to talk to them, you would find that they don’t care what you drive, as long as you are a car guy.
