This was the first time No Limits attended one of the Blackhawk Cars & Coffee events. The event is held on the first Sunday of every month -- rain or shine. Fortunately, it was a sunny and warm Sunday morning. The event is held in the parking lot of the world famous Blackhawk Automotive Museum. As its name implies, the event is for owners of all types of automobiles to come, have a cup (or two) of coffee, browse the cars and talk with the owners. As an added treat, you get two passes to the museum. well worth it !!

So, what kind of cars are in attendance ? We guess there were around 200- 300 cars that included modern muscle like Mustang GT's, Hemi Challangers, and Camaro SS. Exotica such as Ferraris, Porsches, BMW's and a few vintage Alfas. There were hot rods from '32 roadsters, '55 Chevy sedans to a '66 Ford Fairlane Optima Challenge Race car. A personal favorite were the 427 Cobra replicas. These were a real delight -- from a fuel burning (note I did not say gasoline) 427 side oiler to a -- there is never enough HP -- 427 SOHC monster. These cars were finished to a show quality yet were driven (with accompanying thunder) to the event.

More browsing found a Ford GT, a real 1965 Shelby GT350 and a Porsche 930 with a nasty small block Chevy in the back ! A few classics like a Franklin and early Ford plus a ton of '67-'69 Camaros. There were a few 240Z's and a 510 that would talk !

The relaxed atmosphere of the event   made it easy to look at the cars, talk with the owners and -- in general -- have a great Sunday morning -- Cars & Coffee you can bet we'll be back.

A real mix of cars -- hot rods, repliacars, modern muscle and more -- all in one place.

A real 427 SOHC engine stuffed in a Cobra replica -- too much!!
