Classic Cars and Coffee 21st July 2019

Sunday 21st July 2019 was a pleasant Perth winter's day with only light showers forecast. Shelly and I had a family event in the morning so popped into Classic Cars and Coffee on the way. It was probably the earliest I'd ever arrived.

It was the turn of our VW Karmann Ghia. The poor little car hasn't been out much in the past couple of months.

The Porsche Club row begins to form. There is always a good turnout of Porsches.

A very new car at Classic Cars and Coffee is this brand new Renault Alpine A330. The owner took possession this week.

Move Homes and a lovely Alfa-Romeo.

The ever popular Ford Mustang.

A new coffee van at this month's show is Split Bean.

This is a 1960 split window single cab VW Kombi ute.

Renault row begins to form.

Two classic Renault 17s, the new Renault Alpine and a Renault Sports Spider.

Renault Alpine and Renault Spider.

The Renault 17 is a very handsome 1970s sports coupe.

A fabulous 1958 VW Karmann Ghia lowlight in bamboo green. The lowlight model has subtle styling features that make it more attractive than the later models in my opinion.

Our Karmann Ghia eyes its older brother.

Little woof!

Jaguar E-Type


Fiat row.

Richard's Tyrepower

Fabulous little BMW Isetta.

A very interesting newcomer is this sporty Alfa-Romeo.

Citroen DS

Next Classic Cars and Coffee is on 25th August 2019. Please note the new time to accommodate the City to Surf Fun Run.
