    It's possible I might want to go with one of my kids. Depends on a few things, family obligations that day, weather, what time you consider "early"...especially since school has started and they get up early during the week.

    Hope you can make it! I plan on getting there at 7:30 so I can have some choice on where I park. Will probably leave by 10 or 10:30.

    this will be cool! I'll plan to come up for sure.

    I will also be keeping an eye on the re-paving of the Merritt Parkway from Greenwich up through New Canaan... They should be done by the middle of this coming week so the drive up there will be AWESOME for anyone who can come up from NY

    Good idea! They draws lots of cars, including some really nice ones! Hope to see a few familiar faces!

    Address:
    Zumbach's Gourmet Coffee,
    77 Pine Street
    New Canaan, CT

    Website:
    www.caffeineandcarburetors.com

    From their "About Us" section:
    Caffeine & Carburetors is a gathering of automotive enthusiasts. We meet at Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee in New Canaan, CT about 6 times year to enjoy our rides and share them with like-minded gear heads hiding in and around Connecticut and New York.
    We have a tendency to lean toward sports cars, with the occasional Model A or 1920′s Rolls Royce, but our emphasis is on foreign sports cars. We enjoy all vehicles and there are no sponsorships or awards.
    Doug Zumbach began hosting these gatherings in 1995. These Sundays start around 8 am to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee followed by a leisurely drive through the countryside.
    Caffeine and Carburetors is a way to indulge the gear head in all of us. Visit our events page for a listing of our upcoming gatherings.

    Hey, I have been to this event a number of times. I have yet to see a Viper there.
    Maybe nice to meet in town so you guys can park together.
    I would love to go but have a wedding in Vt. Great idea Steve. This is a great event, mostly Ferrari's and Lambos,although there are more and more American cars all the time. A few Vipers would be a hit there I think!

    Thanks Dennis! I've been there twice (before I had a viper) and both shows were awesome... Saw one Gen III viper there once but that's it. Glad that we'll have a presence there!

    Anyone who wants to meet up at the Mobile Station northbound in Harrison NY for this I can drive through that way and meet up. We would need to leave the rest area right at 7:00 to be in New Canaan at 7:30.
