Title: Caffeine and Octane - Sunday April 2nd - Discussion
Post by: tcdawg on March 27, 2017, 08:54:31 AM
This is a fun show if you are a car guy/gear head.  So many cool vehicles to check out. 

here is the website:  https://www.caffeineandoctane.com/ (https://www.caffeineandoctane.com/)

The show is 8am to 11am but if we want to park together we would need to get there fairly early, I am guessing 7am.  I got there last time about 6:30 and found a cool spot just off the main parking area and we all were able to park in a row.  I will do the same this time.

Perimeter Mall 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Rd 

See the photo for our parking location.

Post up if you plan to come out to SEE and be SEEN. 

Something we learned last time.  We finished up at the show and cruised over to Taco Mac at about 11:30 which was cool but TM does not sell beer on Sunday until 12:30...

Pretty sure no one in GA can sell beer before 12:30 on sundays. Think there is a bill in the legislature currently to move the time to 10:00am.

Was really hoping to make this, but does not seem likely as we have not even pulled the engine from the Willys to prep for the LS swap. Should make the one later in the year.

Season is 6mo away?

Yup. September is start. Now is the time to plant for plots as hard freezes are done. Been planning on a food plot for years on my barrow property and just never seem to get around to it. Planting a spring/ summer plot that should get me into the winter months since we are so mild. If not I will replow and change over to a winter mix blend in October or so. I gotta make my barrow property hold these deer longer. Every year it's less and less deer here and driving to Hall county 2-3 times a week to hunt is a pain.

Mike and I hit the road too. With the lack of a good spot to meet, this turned to be a bust. I got there at 6:30 and the VW db's were already there.

We will have to find a new spot to meet or rethink this event for the next time.

Would hate to see what happened if that guy got pulled over for something routine like speeding or rolling through a stop sign.  Cop would take one look in the backseat and call for backup!  //LOL//

I figured that must be why you held back on your build...scrimp on the build since you wouldn't be involved for very long.  It makes sense.

I was planning to come up before the I-85 debacle. But getting up early and adding 30 minutes to the ride wasn't in the cards....and the pollen.....September would be better but that's Labor Day weekend, at least the pollen will be less, but I think 85 won't be fixed until Christmas.

Doesn't seem like it should have taken any longer to get around it that early on a Sunday.

They need to work on that bridge with crews around the clock until it's fixed.

C&O - let's get a big contingent of Jeeps there when we go again and do it right

Po Boys - It is a great show and there was an old Bronco club there the last time that I went a few years ago.  Not sure they want anything but old cars, trucks, etc in the show lot but I could be wrong.  There was a douchebag that showed up in his Lambo and most people just shook their heads and laughed as the walked by.

Or maybe we could have a wheeling 101 session with those that show up.  Could demonstrate how to use a winch by pulling the VWs out of the way.

love me some guns n cool mounts n shit, but this guy is exactly who the libs think we all look like. Im sure the guys in the VW vans were super impressed, and open carry at an event like this? na, not smart, just looking for the off comments and some sort of confrontation.

I don't open carry but also use a OWB holster and don't really care if it's printing.  When I'm riding the Harley, if my jacket or shirt rides up, it can been seen, but I don't care about that either.  More likely to have people avoiding a guy on a Harley that is strapped.

I agree Mike....OWB for me but if pull out my keys
or whatever and my shirt goes up is one thing or
as you put it printing I could care less.

I walked in a store the other day behind a couple
which where slightly older than me. Didn't think
anything until the guy reached to his back and re-
positioned his gun almost as if he wanted me to
notice he had it...

I conceal carry but still bring out the 1911 in winter openly. Shirt over or jacket over but not plain out. It's just asking for some jack knob to freak out. I remember walking into a store a few years back open carrying and one of the employees looked like they were going to have a heart attack.  //LMAO//
