Then we will turn south to “The Pass.” From there we will meander around until we come out on Washington Road. We will drive about .5 mile past the previous “Cars and Coffee” site to the Inner Bean Coffee Shop for breakfast.

Location change for Coffee & Cars; per their web-site:

Notice the location change for this month’s 2nd Anniversary meet! We have outgrown the location on Washington Rd. and will be continuing the meet at our new location in Grovetown. For those that have made it out to the After Dark meets, you’ll be familiar with the location. For those that haven’t, the new address is 212 Partnership Dr., Grovetown, GA 30813.

Please share this with everyone you know so everyone knows the new location. The times/dates are still the same: First Saturday of every month from 8am-11am. Thank you all for your support and continued growth. Let’s continue the trend out in Grovetown! See you there March 5th.


Bella Alleggerita

Count your lucky clovers if you ever get the chance to drive one of these homologated beauties. Born from a chopped series 105, Bertone’s pen inked this featherweight flying alpha-male whose bark matches its twin-plugged bite. Sprinting to the top step of any podium was a regular attribute for this lucky lad.
