It’s been quite a year and not the summer I had planned. Car shows big and small have been cancelled due to COVID19. My Cutlass is STILL at the body shop. Needless to say, I haven’t been motivated to get out and look at cars.
Today, I decided enough is enough. The weather forecast was mild and sunny. I needed to get out, look at cars and talk to car people. I grabbed my mask and hopped in the Mercedes project, heading to Cars and Coffee.
Apparently, a lot of people have been feeling the same way. It was a great turnout with a huge variety of cars. Classic cars, muscle cars, exotic cars, everything was represented.
I met Mike, the owner of a red 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. He has owned this car since the 1980’s and it is pristine. A small block Chevy powers this ride and shifting is managed through a Hurst shifter.
My favorite Corvette generation is the C2 and one of my favorite colors is blue. So I had to talk with Bob about his Nassau Blue Corvette. He has owned several Corvettes through the years and recently got this one put together. Custom touches include the side pipes and electronic fuel injection.
Speaking of Corvettes, I caught up with Brian and got a chance to see his 2020 Corvette. Brian is a car guy and has quite a collection. He ordered his C8 last year and received one of the first in Columbus back in February. The color combination screams sports car and it looks fast even while parked.
It was a great morning! I definitely have a lower stress level having done what I love to do. I hope you and your loved ones are well and pray you are safe through all we are witnessing today. Be sure to follow Five Lugs on Instagram for all the other cars that caught my eye. Until next time.
