Sunday Morning Breakfast Run, August 28, 2016

Lined up and ready to go

It’s been a hot summer in the Northeast, but the morning of August 28, 2016, dawned with somewhat cool temperatures. This usually means that while it would still get quite warm, the humidity would fail to be oppressive. Most importantly, it gave every indication of staying dry for our breakfast drive, a gathering which we last did back in May.

Our turnout today was great: 12 cars and 14 participants. Showing the diversity of our automotive interests, we had a mix of 5 domestics and 7 imports, and almost every decade represented from the 1960s through the 2000s. For a switch, let’s list our cars alphabetically by make (OK, I admit it, I want to get the Alfas first):

  • Alfa Romeo – THREE! Two ’91 Spiders, and your blogger’s ’67 GT Junior.
  • BMWs – Three: Two Z3s (one an M), and a rather new 2-series convertible.
  • Cadillac – a ’66 Eldorado convertible.
  • Chevrolet – Two: A ’72 Nova, and a C4 Corvette coupe.
  • Dodge – The Green Viper.
  • Ford – A late-model Mustang convertible.
  • Porsche – a late ‘80s 911 coupe.

Our breakfast destination was the Readington Diner on Route 22 in Whitehouse Station NJ. Once we got off Routes 287 and 10, the roads were a driver’s delight. The diner was most accommodating, as we called ahead, and there was a table waiting for us when we strolled in at 10:30.

Coffee, food, more coffee, talk, and more coffee finally concluded with the usual “why don’t we do this again soon?” So we will. We’re hoping for at least two more runs this year before our classics are tucked away for the winter.

  1. Another fun morning drive with a great collection of cars. Rich, loved the lineup of Green, White, and Red cars. Like Pete D. said, “Just need to have The Pope fill out the field in his Fiat and we’re all set!” Thanks again for a great day.
