Sunday, November 3: Caffeine & Carburetors —> VSCCA Fall Rally
What an amazing day this day turned out to be. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to do what we are supposed to do and that is find great cars for sale. But sometimes you have to do some mining exploration before you strike gold. We are members of the Vintage Sports Car Club of America and they hosted a Fall Rally through the Connecticut countryside. We had 32 car and all of them were outstanding examples. We started at the simply outrageous Caffeine & Carburetors in New Canaan, Connecticut. Insanity. Some of the greatest cars in the world lined Pine Street in one of the wealthiest suburbs in America. For example, there were 2, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series. We hear tell there are only 60 in the USA. The rally was organized by Santo Spadaro of Dominick’s Foreign Car Service. They are well-known in this part of the world. We played with a Cunningham, an early Lancia B20, a few Jaguar XK120s and one of our favorites, a Jaguar Mark 2 Sedan set up for track work. It was a great day with some terrific folks from the VSCCA. We’ll get back to finding some winners on Tuesday.
