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

On a hot 4th of July weekend, Caffeine and Octane held their seventh extravaganza of 2017. Held at the Perimeter Mall outside of Atlanta in Dunwoody, Georgia, Caffeine and Octane allows car enthusiasts from all over to bring their cars and to show them off.

Last month’s extravaganza really proved how much Caffeine and Octane has grown, especially from the Alpharetta era. Despite the weather, it didn’t stop the enthusiasts from bringing their prized possessions and it didn’t stop the crowd from enjoying the cars… even in the rain. I’m holding this month’s extravaganza with the same high regard as last month. In the past, attendance tends to taper off due to the holiday weekends (mostly Independence Day and Labor Day weekend) and people do go out of town. The past was clearly in the past and July’s extravaganza was packed.

In one parking area, spectators had the opportunity to gaze, photograph, and chat about the widest array of cars. From a variety of army trucks- one of which was parked next to a Rolls Royce Ghost (talk about a random pairing), a chameleon inspired McLaren, a bloody Hummer, an Excursion that could literally provide enough music for the actual show, plenty of cars that were in stance mode, a Dodge Charger that was seasoned enough to be my Dodge Charger’s grandfather, lowriders provided by the Individual Car Club celebrating their anniversary (more on their anniversary will be in the next post), a high amount of exotic and good ol’ American muscle cars, and most importantly…

The Ford Super Duty truck that was so massive, you couldn’t help but see it.

Before I unveil the photos, I referred to Caffeine and Octane as an extravaganza. According to Webster’s dictionary, an extravaganza is a very large and exciting show or event. Enough talking because I know you’re waiting to see some photos…
