Bernie’s Car Show Coverage: Caffeine and Octane: June 2017

“Rain or Shine, the show must go on.”

On a gloomy Sunday, June 4th, 2017, Caffeine and Octane held their 6th show of the year. I think this month’s show proved how much of a following Caffeine and Octane truly has. About an hour before the show officially started, storms moved through the Atlanta area. In the past, some car enthusiasts have hesitated on driving their prized possessions in such crappy weather. Apparently times have changed. Despite the rain, the widest range of vehicles still gathered in the parking lot of the Perimeter Mall outside of Atlanta. Spectators carried their umbrellas and wore rain jackets while checking out the new Mercedes AMG GTR (I’m a little spoiled since I sat in one at the New York Auto Show a few months ago), Nissan GTRs, Lamborghini Aventador SV, Hot Rods (including the one on truck tires and I’m not kidding.), a few classic Lincoln Continentals, and yes… there was a Ford Model A there as well.

Caught one of the crew members shooting a feature car for season 2.

Because of the rain, I arrived at the show (later than usual) around 8:30 and it started raining (again) at 10 am, which prompted me to leave. What you’re about to see is what I was able to shoot within 90 minutes.
