Me and a few Audi buddies are going to the next Cars and Coffee in Lafeyette on April 6th, wanted to post here and see if anyone else was planning/interested.

Its usually pretty crowded from 9 to 11, I get in around 830 to get a good spot. It would be awesome to get some more Audis out!

The address of the coffee shop is;

2770 Arapahoe Rd
Lafayette, CO 80026

Its usually a pretty good time, I havent made my mind up on what I'm bringing, but it will be either my white 1983 Quattro, Grey 2007 RS4, or my Red 1987Coupe GT (if its out of paint), and I'll be parked with a Red 4000S Quattro and a Silver S6 Avant. Make sure to say hi if you can make it!

I love Audi 4000's! And that 83 Quattro is bad ass. Back in high school all my crew had Audi 4000's (and I had a 93 90CS). You are cool in my book. Its a bit far for me from Parker, but I will think about driving up.

Nice, I posted something about this earlier and am going to try to bring the S4 avant. I'll look for you guys.

Once owned a '86 4000cs, red like the one in your pic. Best memory of that car was how amazingly well balanced it was and how fun a drive at 2am in 8 inches of snow over Berthoud Pass was. . . good times!

I still havent had a 4KQ yet, the one pictured belongs to my buddy Dan. The UrQ is an absolute tank in the snow though, love driving that thing in the snow.

Your Berthoud pass story reminds me of when I bought my 87 Coupe GT, which was sold to me by a guy who lived in Dillon. To show it off for me, he hussled it up to the top of Loveland Pass (from the side that passes in front of the A-Basin ski area) and then had me hoon it back down. It was wet with a little residual snow (Mid May), and a little scary having little to no feel for the car, but also awesome. I bought the car on the spot.

As it was when I brought it home;

As it is today, after a pretty big restoration and paint project (just got it back this week!!!)

Good lord! Any more pics of that '65 Shelby Daytona coupe?

That is on my next car list and would love to ask the owner some questions! Looks like the FFR replica. Gorgeous car!

There are a lot of pics of this monthly event in this thread over on Pelican Parts:

It's better in person, though!

I think I'll be there, probably bringing the Elise as my Audi isn't that special (yet).

I was wondering if one of the ones that showed up was yours. Was an awesome show today, met Richard and hope to see some of you all at the next one. I may have to bring the RS next time and enjoy some of the spirited driving :)

Looks like you got your photo of my car not long after I pulled in, I did a quick wash to get the winter dust and most of the bug guts off, and there's still water droplets in your photo. :)
My buddy's son loved your R8, it was one his favorite after the Noble and the Corvette race car (which had some problems starting back up when it tried to leave).

Whats up with the shifter? Are all Lotus like that? Kinda steam punk-ish with exposed levers/gears whatnot, super cool.

The shifter is a custom job designed by my buddy to make it easier for me to shift, I have limited reach with my right arm.

I saw you head off down 95th, sounded great. What exhaust was that?

HUGE turnout today. FPBBrandon, your car looks even better in person than in the pics. Loved the Wheel choice! Nice work. I was parked across from you (imola S4 avant) but didn't stay long. Saw a pack of avants with 3zero3 stickers roll through but never saw them parked. Insane how many people were there. This event has really blown up.
