Red Dirt Diaries: Classic Car Lovers Gather Once A Month In OKC

Car lovers converged in Oklahoma City. A simple idea to show off some sparkling rides turned into a “can't miss” event for thousands in the metro. At day break, the caravan of chrome arrived.

Coffee and Cars revved up featuring cars like a 1956 Thunderbird, a 1955 Chevy Business Coup and a 1976 Chevrolet Corvette.

The first Saturday of every month folks get an up-close look at American muscle, European refinement and classic cool.

Samara started Coffee and Cars three years ago.

“Our first time when he first started, we probably has 100 cars. Now we have 600 cars and it wraps around the Northpark Mall,” said Terrill.

The passion is seen, heard and understood with each story.

News 9 met two young gear heads at the event, Jacob Townsend and Drake Taylor.

They are still learning all the details. Their knowledge can seem impressive, if not a little annoying. Just ask dad.

But with that many cherry rides, it wasn't hard not get a little delusional.

“What's going to be your first car? News 9's Karl Torp asked.

“Aston Martin,” said Jacob.

Jacob's dad should thank Karl for the lesson in reality that came next.

When Karl pulled up in his beauty of a practical import sedan, he asked, “What kind of engine is in this?”

"Probably a V6," the boy answered.

“It's a V4,” Karl said.

He was shamed by kids nowhere near old enough to drive, but with a license to dream.
