I hope 2019 is not an extension of 2018, weather-wise. The first Katie's of 2019 was hampered by rain, but the loyal core group still showed up. On a positive note, it wasn't too cold, and it was not actively raining.

It was cold this morning - 27 degrees. No wind, but snow is coming this afternoon. Still, we had an OK turnout at Katie's.

I've been on vacation for the last 5 weeks. I had a great time, but it's good to be back...

It's March, and I say it's time for better weather. It seems like we've had rain practically every weekend since the middle of last summer. Who do we contact to fix this?

Cold and misty today, but (as often on bad-weather Saturdays), German cars came out in numbers. Lots of BMWs, including a new BMW 8 Series.

The new Z4 looks so much better than the previous generation. Got any pics of the 8-Series?

Sorry - that was a new Z4, not the new 8 Series.

This morning, I took my Elise to Katie's for the first time this year. We had snow last night, but the streets were dry when I left home, and the temperature as above freezing - 34F, in fact. This is what passes for good weather here, lately.

It seems like, when it's cold & wet & snowy, almost all the cars that show up to Katie's are German. I was wrong about seeing the 8 series BMW last week, but here it is!!

Amazing! We had a cool, clear Saturday, and the biggest Katie's by far this year! Lots of interesting vehicles there today, the day before St. Patrick's Day. The cars were parked all the way around the complex today.

Sorry - my laptop gave up the ghost in late March, and I'm just catching up in mid-April! My friend Pete brought out his well-turned-out Sprite...

I don't know what possessed the guy in the Z4 to do the "mods' done to it.

That last car is an oddity - a Lotus Omega. In the spirit of the Lotus Cortina, Lotus transformed a fairly ordinary sedan - the Open Omega.
When it came out in 1990, one of the fastest 4-door cars in the world. Twin-turbo inline-6, 377hp, ~180mph. A great 'sleeper'!

It rained through the night last night, but stopped 20 minutes before I left home to go to Katie's. As a result, Cars & Coffee got a late start, and was limited
to not much more than a full front lot. Still, there were some nice vehicles there - especially Ken G.'s 356 Porsche.

A great day at Katie's - windy, but not cold. A lot of interesting cars and people there today! Our friend Paul had to work. The Espada is passing a new Urus, arriving.
