Default Some Really Nice Cars Out Today

Every first Sunday of the month there is a meet just north of Atlanta called Caffeine and Octane, even in the really cold months the turnout is impressive. Easily over 300 cars there today showing off. Here's some of what showed up. Hard to take pictures of everything and I stop taking pictures of things I see every month. Enjoy.

This Z06 was hiding twin 62mm turbos tucked up under the engine, over 1000whp on race gas, 850+ on pump gas, engine bay/turbo photos in my album:



LFA:







Brand new Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4:



Slightly blown Mustang:



Slow and Fast:





Pretty self explanatory:



A really nice 2002:



This car made my day:





The rest of the pictures are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rotornu...7625991539358/ Although some dirt got onto my camera body's lens and left spots on some of the pictures. Oh well, don't feel like post-editing right now.

Yeah, that Miata (aka Thunder) belongs to NickT93. He also has the mint green turbo '95 Miata that he painted himself in his garage. Anyway, it's got a ton of things done, built engine (about 1.9L IIRC), GT3071R, Hydra, full cage, Trackmate, etc. 405 rwhp. It has a huge catalog in it.

I like arriving at events like that super early so by the time I leave, my car is cold and my cam chops up the lot. There's nothing better than a chopping cam, clutch chatter and a backwards hat.

Damn! It sucks to be a normal joe.... I remember seeing that miata for sale, and do remember it to be quite nasty from the FS ad! Any videos of it anywhere?

I ran up to Nicks house yesterday on my way up to Auburn to pick up a ECU from him. I finally got to get a up close and personal look at Thunder, OMFG infuckinsane. I cant wait for all the bugs to be worked out and see it at its full potential.

lol, he has way to many cars. I think he has 4 miatas, I forgot to count though while I was up there.
