Classic Cars and Coffee dates in Perth 2017

Classic Cars and Coffee dates for 2017

Next date 6 August 2017

Classic Cars and Coffee is a new, monthly event for classic car enthusiasts in Perth. It's an informal get together to meet, discuss cars and drink coffee for a couple of hours on a Sunday morning. It starts at 8.30am and winds up around 10.30 but attendees can arrive and depart at will. The two events held so far in the parking lot of the University of WA, Nedlands have been very well received. There is undercover parking in winter. The plan is to host these events monthly so check out the Facebook page or website for details.

A sight you don't see too often - two Citroen SMs parked together

Rear view of the Citroen SMs.  They are not as elegant as their DS forebears.

The Maserati engine of the SM is a disaster area of over-engineering
