Scuderia Society is just one of the organizations that helps throw this event together every month.  Without them, you wouldn’t have a spot to have a huge gathering of exotics, classics, ricers, domestics, etc.

1.  It’s FREE to attend!

You don’t need to register for this event since it’s free… you can even bring your street legal/illegal hot rods…

Some sections are coned off for ‘special’ cars and it gets filled up quick if you’re not there early… so if you get turned away, don’t get too butthurt…

2.  The event is animal friendly!

3.  You’ll see more and more cars imported from different countries.

4.  If you’re a Porsche fanatic, you’ll find a huge presence there.

You can spot not just one Porsche 991 GT3RS but several in different colors… I think I counted 4 that day…

8.  Where else can you find a group of Exotic Super Cars in Houston?

Each monthly gather, you can find featured cars… for example, there was a Lamborghini Superleggera, Hennessey Venom GT, Ferrari 458 racecar, and a Pagani Huayra featured that day…

A C6 with some over fender treatment in the rear… even domestics can stance their cars…

10.  There’s a bunch more reasons so I’m just gonna post up a bunch of photos…

I think if you attend Houston Cars and Coffee at least once this year, you won’t miss too much if you don’t attend for awhile.  The Memorial City Mall venue is definitely a lot bigger and accommodates more people and cars.  And as long as the attendees don’t mess up, Houston Coffee and Cars will be there for awhile.

As always, thanks for checking out the post and/or photos.
