What’s better than having cool cars, friendly people and good food all gathered in the same spot? A car show with a twist, Custom Cars & Coffee is where hundreds of proud owners come to show off their pride and joy, while having a chat over a cup of coffee, and meet new and old friends.
The last event was held in the past weekend at the Caribbean Gardens and Market in Melbourne, Victoria. It’s the same vibe but hyper-caffeinated by the caliber of rides that show up – from European exotics and track specials to American muscles and hotted up JDM machines – it’s all there.
Check out some of the cool cars we saw while roaming the lawn at Custom Cars & Coffee.
