On February 3rd, Caffeine and Octane held their second show of 2019. Although the city of Atlanta was packed for Super Bowl Sunday, Caffeine and Octane felt as packed as downtown Atlanta.
It’s been awhile since I posted my photos from Caffeine and Octane on my blog. I usually go every month- last year I missed 2 shows (May and November), and I did attend last month’s show. I think because I attend the show so often that I’ve run out of things to say. I enjoyed this month’s show very much. Aside from running into some familiar faces, I did get to see some cars that I haven’t seen before. Of course, I can expect to see a large turnout from the JDM market, as well as from Porsche, BMW, the Dodge Car Clubs, a sprinkle of Lamborghinis, etc.
… But then this pulled up. Atlanta unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of Liberty Walk vehicles. The only one I remembered seeing was the Nissan GTR. Seeing this 458 did bring a tear to my eye. Another vehicle that brought a tear to my eye was….
this Chevy Impala for the most obvious reasons. I’ve always said that Lowriders have a special place in my heart because I love how they can take a rusty old car- which is what most of them start out as and turn it into rolling pieces of art. It takes a lot of work for that type of transformation. Growing up on Long Island, I’ve seen my fair share of the JDM and the luxury/exotic car world. Lowriders aren’t a new concept, but I’ve only started seeing them in person within the last 10 years.
Enough talking because I know you would rather see some photos…
Bernie’s Caffeine and Octane: February 2019 gallery. I would say that I will be attending March’s show, but instead I decided to attend a show that has been on my bucket list for 2 years. Stay tuned.
