If you own a classic car, or sporty weekend toy, finding a place to drive it is sometimes difficult. First, there needs to be a good reason to charge the battery, wash the gleaming paint, and back out of the garage. Next, you want a drive long enough to warm up the engine and enjoy driving your car, but not so far that you can’t call a buddy to trailer it home should the day not go so well. A couple of hours is far enough. Last, cars are best enjoyed alongside other cars.
Auctions America has you covered this summer as it hosts monthly "Cars & Coffee" events at its Auburn Auction Park – an easy two-hour drive up Interstate 69 from Indianapolis. The event is open to the public, which brings cars as diverse as Ford Mustangs, Audis, Cobras, and everything between.
The first events kicked off in April with nearly 100 cars gathered, but additional events will occur July 2, August 6, and September 3 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., rain or shine. It’s all casual -- an opportunity to meet other auto enthusiasts, share stories, and enjoy a good cup of coffee.
Auburn Auction Park is along I-69, just south of Auburn at 5536 County Road 11A in Auburn, Indiana. While in town, also visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum. It’s one of my absolute favorite auto museums and visit as often as I can. Follow Auctions America at facebook.com/auctionsamerica. Make Cars & Coffee an excuse to commune with your car this summer.
