Cars, Friends and a Nosh

The Orlando Automobile Club parks cars more or less by type. We were guided to the Porsche section.
The exotics covered most of the bases.
The high-dollar cars took the facility's center stage.
The nice fall morning helped attract a wide range of cars.
And the biggie: A bunch of people got to see some neat cars, all for free.

It’s a neat, low-key affair that’s worth a visit.

Okay, so our Porsche hasn’t been leading the most exciting life, but it’s still getting out there on a regular basis. This past Saturday we took it to the Orlando Automobile Club’s monthly [Cars & Café] ( gathering. They meet at the Route 46 Entertainment District, a group of automotive-themed restaurants and bars located in Sanford, Fla., just off I-4.

The event attracted about 150 cars covering a wide range of makes, models and budgets. While the six-figure Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Porsches took up the center stage, the site’s parking lots were filled with a neat mix of machines, from a Sunbeam Tiger and BMW M coupe to several Mazda RX-8s, Z-cars, Porsches and BMWs.

It’s a neat, low-key affair that’s worth a visit. It’s also a good opportunity to chat with some like-minded gearheads in a quiet, relaxed setting.
