Coffee and Cars: A Love Story

Tall Husband arriving in his Porsche Cayman.

Tall Husband chatting about, what else? Cars, cars and more cars.

Confession: Tall Husband and I are passionate about cars...classic, domestic, foreign, new, antique. So, last weekend we dropped by the Coffee and Cars gathering here in Houston. We were not disappointed in the cars or the people with whom we chatted.

And did I mention that there were also great dogs and kids there? Perfect!

These are only a few of the more than 200 cars that were displayed by their proud owners.


  1. Gorgeous cars! Mr K would have palpitations if he saw your Porsche as he loves them. It looks like the kind of event my husband and I would enjoy! X

  2. You two are just too cool! I didn't think I cared about cars, but your day makes me wish I had been there!!

  3. I love the blue car in the third photo. Did you get to get in it? Was it cool?

  4. THat third car is a French Citroën from late 50s-early 60s. I don't know the exact year, but DeGualle always rode in one as did other French officials.

  5. beautiful cars...great photos...looks like tall husband was having a great time...

  6. I just can't get "into" cars, and those you posted are mighty fine specimens. But I completely understand making a community out of a similar interest and appreciating what each person has to bring to the gathering. Much like blogging, huh.

  7. You weren't kidding about tall husband; he barely fits in the Porsche.

    In any case, I don't think I know anything about your favorite car.
    What is Annie's favorite ride?

  8. We have a soft spot for cars too in this family. We have owned vintage cars. They have so much personality. Great photos.

  9. HaHa! TH needs a shoehorn to get out of that car!!!!!!!! AND I'll take that blue Citroen home with me thank you very much!

  10. My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving to Houston, so I was seeking out Houston blogs and found your's. It's quite lovely! And my boyfriend LOVES classic cars. I think if I showed him this post, we'd pack our bags tomorrow!

  11. Love Tall Husbands sweet ride!! I love old cars, that must have been a lot of fun.

  12. Bunny, nice wheels...gosh, really nice.

    Courtney, be SURE to check out the job situation here before you move...unless you are independently wealthy and it is not an issue.
    We have a LOT of vintage/antque car shows in and around the area each year. So if you love these auto's...come on down.


  13. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive
    content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
