Owners’ Dinner: November 2010 at Indigo

One of our good customers owns a restaurant in Roswell called Indigo. It is an absolutely incredible place to eat with a menu that is constantly updated.

Ed’s Car History: 2003 Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG #1

I have always loved the big AMG Mercedes cars. In 2003 when they released the supercharged 5.5 liter V8’s with 493 horsepower, I immediately wanted one. I found a very nicely kept 2003 S55 in Atlanta for sale by a private individual with about 90k miles in 2008 and bought it. I drove it about […]

Ed’s Garage at Home

I moved to a new home in Duluth in September of 2010. I was adamant that it have at least a 3 car garage (preferably 7) but Megan was adamant about a lot of other things. We ended up with a lovely home that has a 2 car garage. I still got to decorate it. […]

Ed’s Car History: 2003 Land Rover Discovery SE

Cars and Coffee: September 2011

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 […]

Owners’ Dinner: October 2010 @ Monteluce

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 […]

Caffeine & Octane: August 2011

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 […]
