Even the Camaro boys joined us this morning:

Re: Morning Coffee

Sweet cars Tom.
I'm gonna see if my local "cars & coffee" is happening tomorrow - it's supposed to be near 70 degrees :D What a treat in the middle of winter.

Re: Morning Coffee

It made it to 53 here in DC - not 70 as predicted - and it is foggy, wet and ugly

You are more than welcome to come here and "defrost"....-33 It is a little chilly here at 54 (at the moment) but the 5 day shows it will be 71 by Thursday so pack up all your stuff and come on down.

Not really the kind of car you can drive on the street (push to start)...he just wanted to show his racer to his Corvette brothers which I thought was cool.
