Like most large cities, Atlanta has its fair share of monthly and annual car meets where car enthusiasts can gather to share our mutual joy of automobiles. At these car meets and shows, attendees see everything from daily drivers to older muscle cars, and every once in a while you may spot an exotic. As car lovers, most of us can find joy in viewing most cars that are fast, rare or expensive.
Want to know what’s better than seeing a Lamborghini or Ferrari at a car show? How about seeing a bunch of Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Rolls-Royce’s, McLaren’s, rare kit cars, Aston Martin’s and more exotics in one place! What our friends at Caffeine and Exotics has done is create an event that specializes in showing off expensive and rare cars that would be considered exotic by many, in one location. This is what makes Caffeine and Exotics the southeast’s premier car show for spectators. But what makes it so special for the private owners who go out of their way to bring their valuable and rare automobiles out for everyone to enjoy?
Where other car shows can be a ‘show up and find a spot’ type of event that harbors a need to arrive super early in the morning (I’ve heard stories of owners arriving at shows at 5:00 am) or being left “parking out back”, Caffeine and Exotics has a registration system that gives private owners the ability to arrive when the show starts at 8:00 am and know they have a spot with their name on it. And with the event ending at 11:00 am, Caffeine and Exotics gives private owners a peace of mind knowing they are not on the hook for an unreasonable portion of their Sunday.
Private owners have no need to worry about someone opening a door on their valuable car. C&E has large 18’x 18′ spots for each automobile.
The parking lot is secure and only other registered private owners are allowed access to the lot with their fine automobiles. Beyond the reserved slots, large parking spots and secure parking, private owners are provided with closed access to Zen Burger Restaurant for socializing, grabbing a drink or bite to eat, that’s located only a 20 second walk from the C&E entrance.
Bottom line, there is just not an event anything like Caffeine and Exotics in Atlanta, or to my knowledge, anywhere in the southeast! If you’re interested in registering your fine automobile for a future Caffeine and Exotics event, you can expect to set a third Sunday of a given month aside for a morning at Lenox Square Mall, an upscale enclosed super regional shopping mall located in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, Georgia. Caffeine and Exotics registration for private owners can be found here.
My company, Detailed Designs Auto Spa is Caffeine and Exotics’ official premium professional car detailing and clear bra installation company. We’ve been a part of the C&E for all but the first month and I can honestly say I really love this event. The private owners are about as kind and pleasant as one could ask for and the spectators are so excited to be there. Just today I saw the owner of a brand new Lamborghini Aventador allow a young man that was about 16 years old to sit in his new Lamborghini. Who does that?! I’ll tell you who, awesome car enthusiasts who understand the love of amazing cars, that’s who.
A Great Variety
Beyond Italian exotics, it’s great to have multiple Mercedes Benz SLS’, a few Rolls-Royce’s, and some of the finest automobile dealerships bringing the best they have to offer every month for display. To make all of this happen, there is a fantastic team backing it up. Guys that go home and work hard at making each event something special for private owners and the spectators. A big thank you goes out to Bruce, Atique, Steve, John and Dani for working so hard at making this event happen. I can say that it has been great working with each of you on such a special event.
Only being a few months old, C&E is showing some real promise to be something that will draw owners of fine automobiles from all over the southeast. Each month has improved in the variety of cars. And while I am not a professional photographer, I wanted to be able to share some of shots I took of my favorite rides I saw today.
Make Time For It
If you are in the Atlanta area, or anywhere within a few hours, I can’t possibly encourage you enough to attend this event. There are 6 great hotels within a short walking distance of the event and the best shopping in Atlanta. Come make a weekend of it, just make sure it’s the one that contains the third Sunday of the month. Please check with Caffeine and Exotic’s Facebook page for regular updates and remember that the event will not be held November or December due to the shopping season. Until that time that I can see you there, I hope you can enjoy these shots of some really special cars!
