    Cars and Coffee Austin 2/12/17 - Took the Roadmaster Wagon to Cars and Coffee this morning. I thinks folks had cabin fever after the cold weather last month, because with temps in the 70s today the meet was HUUUGE. The outside lots were full at 9am so the overflow FILLED the 4-story parking garage too and THEN folks began parking on the grass! There were 1400 cars!!!

    I managed to kill my phone battery I took so many pics, 70 Superbird, 69 COPO Camaro and '69 Yenko, and the Zimmer Quicksilver and Renault Alpine, Lexus LFA, Triumph TR8 convertible....Rotary-powered Toyota Starlet, Prelude Convertible and Lambo-door 71 Riviera????....yep...and TONS more. LOTS of pics in this album (480+)! Enjoy!

    And a drone view, and the outdoor lot wasn't even full here yet! Look at the lines of cars coming in, AND can you spot the Roadmaster wagon?? https://www.youtube.com/attribution_link?a=zmbUp5PkCYg&u=/watch?v=Ukco5zKte5g&feature=share

    Dang Mike! That's a lot of cars! I have been to one or two events in the past that had over 1000 cars and it can actually get overwhelming after a while.
    We still have snow on the ground here. I can certainly understand the cabin fever aspect.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I know right where that is Grizz! I love Austin and Central Texas in general. So pretty with the hill country close, and great weather...well except July/August, but that's what tubing and lakes are for. Been in Austin 23-years now. Only downside is so many folks have moved here the traffic is crappy now...it wasn't when I moved here!

    I was joking about crossing texas being difficult. The whole state is cool. When I lived in Austin people would give me a hard time about being from Nashville on account of a supposedly on going debate about who deserves the title "music city". They would say "here in Austin we have more live music than anyone so the debate is silly." I would respond, "I agree, it is silly! So silly that in Nashville we didnt even know this was a discussion!" Austin is a great city! I lived there 2 years, everyday felt like a vacation. Its first time I ever saw two men riding one motorcycle!:rofl2:

    Look at the massive size of that Lincoln! it makes all the other cars tiny in comparison, it just dominates that picture you almost don't even notice the limo behind it! (y)

    Thanks again Mike for a nice group of photos. We always wanted to go to Texas. Had friends there and came close to moving to one of those RV communities next to a place called Mexico.
    I'd have trouble now walking around that grassy rectangle where you parked.
