Caffeine & Octane Atlanta April 2nd

Atlanta's biggest monthly car meet is happening this weekend. If you're in the Atlanta area come on by and hang out with about 10,000 people that share your interest in cars. The weather forecast is about as perfect as can be.
This gathering of 1500+ cars happens the first Sunday morning of every month. Usually a few R107 show up but not too many. Would be great if we could change this. Officially the meet starts at 8am, however if you want any decent parking you don't want to be there any later than 7am.

It is easy to plan for - 1st Sunday of every month rain or shine. However it only goes on for about 4h then everybody scurries off.

I went yesterday morning to Caffeine and Octane. I figured I get my butt up early so I can get there at about 6:30AM. Too late, the section set aside for the classic cars was already full and I ended up parking in general area – in a sea of Hyundai Tiburons, Mazda MX5’s and Honda Civics. At least the SL stuck out (like a sore thumb).

Caffeine & Octane August edition

So I went this AM. I figured instead of getting up before dawn, I sleep in a little and get to the car meet at about 8:30AM. It was an absolute zoo. This meeting is getting bigger and bigger, total sensory overload. The main section of the show was more crowded than a shopping mall the day before Christmas. There were numerous R107, 3 or 4 of the new NSX's, too many Ferraries and Lamborghini's to keep track of......

...and then there was this:
Supposedly it sold at the last auction for $11,900,000

I figure I awaken this thread exactly one year since the last post.
I am planing on attending this “insane” car meet this coming Sunday. Anybody else from the greater Atlanta area thinking about attending?

Due to the “overwhelming” response to my post I ended up driving the S2000 to the meet.
Turnout was great. There were a few R107’s, the most noteworthy was a late 80’s 300SL. Too bad it wasn’t a manual.
