It is the first Friday. I went last weekend. Cars and Coffee at Northlake Mall is the first Saturday of the month. Oakboro is the 4th Friday of the month, and their burnout exhibition begins this month. I found this website:

UPCOMING CAR SHOWS. SOUTH CAROLINA CAR SHOWS. NORTH CAROLINA CAR SHOWS. NC CAR SHOWS. SC CAR SHOWS. SC CAR SHOW EVENTS. NC CAR SHOW EVENTS.

which lists car events from all around us.

For the 2-3 months a year that some weenies...errr...I mean people...wouldn't ride around here with the top down, OP could just enjoy the GT-ness of a Mustang.

Cars and Coffee has moved. The owners at Northlake Mall no longer wish the event there.

Here's a link that explains it all. Look at Page 2 for the new venue announcement.
Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee - Location Change Update!!

It resumes at NC Music Factory/Mattie's Diner Uptown Charlotte off of Graham St. on May 5 (I think).

I intend going to this one since I'll be in town for the gig. So long as it is not raining heavily that is.

Thanks for that. I had no idea it had moved.

This is what I was thinking... I don't need to have the top down year round, but it seems there is no reason I could not enjoy the "GT-ness". With the shows, it sounds like a fun place to have a performance car.

We have a Porsche Boxster as a 3rd car for weekends and sometimes commute car. This year we have had the top down every month through the winter months as it's been a decently warm winter. As long as you keep the windows up and the heat on, it's more than fine during many days.

On the other hand I don't care to ride in a convertible here in the summer during mid-day. it's a good way to get boiled in your own juices.

I was seriously considering selling my GTO and getting into a Vette, even aconvertible. Then I spent an afternoon in a buddy's vert last August.



Scratch that off the list of possible replacements.

The Boxster is one of the best driving cars I've ever driven. Not a powerhouse, but so stable.

I take the soft top off my Jeep in the summer but then I have been known to have the doors off and drive in the snow in the mountains in the winter (properly dressed, of course). I also have driven my convertible w/ top down 12 months a year, but again . . . that's not for everyone. My point is . . . yes, you can definitely enjoy a convertible here, and it is especially nice to take it to the mountains. There are many clubs you can join - and have fun with rallies, as well.

This is car country!

This is great news!!! I was bummed that both Mooresville and Cars and Coffee were shut down.

Are there any details on why Northlake didn't want all the business it brought to Panera at a time when no one was at the mall? (8am)

The owner of Mattie's is a cool guy, I am glad to see the show going there.... woo!
