An amazing April Cars & Coffee

12 April 2017

For the April 2017 Cars & Coffee at Coventry Transport Museum, we welcomed 83 classic cars and motorcycles onto Millennium Place to bask in the morning spring sunshine.

The cars ranged in age from 1935, a Riley Falcon, up to a 2010 Ford Focus Rally ST3… both in navy blue.

We also had on display a Reliant Kitten Van making its debut, along with a beautiful classic Mercedes 220 SEB from 1965, two Cobras, two Rolls Royce and a Morris Minor Panda Car from 1971…non commission of course!

Our Cars and Coffee meets are in essence a chocolate box selection gathering of stunning classic cars from bygone decades, accompanied by their passionate owners who love nothing more than parking up, popping the bonnet and talking about their pride and joy.


On any given Cars and Coffee meet you may see Jaguar cars parked next to a Hillman Imp, or an Aston Martin parked next to a Triumph Herald or even a Russian Trabant. On this Saturday’s meeting we welcomed our first Wartburg from 1964… just amazing. From the motorcycle contingent we welcomed two classic Triumphs, a 1963 Vespa and a Honda CB750/4 from 1973.

Next month’s Cars and Coffee is on Saturday 13th May, which will be an all-day event and is themed as a Hot Rods & Customs special day as our Hot Rods exhibition closes at 5pm on Sunday 14th May after a fantastic near four month run.

The day will start at 9.00am and go through till 4.00pm, on Millennium Place and inside the Museum in Hot Rods and Kool Kustoms, so don’t miss it!
