For September, Caffeine & Octane moved once again. We decided that we wanted to try something a bit more low key with a smaller group and some more flexibility. We decided to just go out on our own, get some coffee, have some breakfast, and go for a drive. We had a great turnout and […]
In October of 2010 we had an awesome drive up to Dahlonega to visit Monteluce Winery. It is one of the best restaurants around Atlanta and one of the best environments to enjoy a meal anywhere.We had a very Halloween color motif that month with mostly orange a black cars. It was a very impressive […]
Due to issues with the host location, there was no Caffeine & Octane in July of 2011. We went a location in the parking lot of Nino’s Italian Kitchen on Alpharetta Highway for August. Unfortunately the restaurant had closed and there was no Coffee or Restrooms. Despite that, we had a great turnout and a […]
On Friday we had a awesome drive south from the dealership to Atlantic Station. We had a very good steak and sushi dinner at STRIP and then went to see the newly released Drive movie. With 4 Lambos, 3 Astons, a Lotus, a Ferrari, and a rebel in a GTR we really shut the place […]

June was the last month for Caffeine & Octane at the previous location – Mansell Crossing. Here are some pictures of the cars that we had out for the event, taken by Kevin Bandy.
In September of 2010 we had an Owners’ Dinner at Maggiano’s at Perimeter. Their family style meals work perfectly for this type of environment. We had some great new faces and cars at this one and everyone had a great time. The line at the valet didn’t look too bad!
In August of 2010 we got together for an Owners’ Dinner at Brio. Great food and some nice shots.
In December of 2007 I bought a Ferrari 360 Spider. It was a Euro Car (There were no MY 2000) US cars. It was imported from Germany by AmeriSpec in 2001. Back then, 360 Spiders were bringing $150k over sticker in the US so it made sense. This car was Rosso Corsa over Crema with […]
