CHarlotte Cars and Coffee Saturday Sept 7th! NC Music Factory Uptown!

Charlotte Area- Cars and Coffee at the NC Music Factory- Sat Sept 7th!
Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee - Uptown Charlotte


Mattie's Diner / NC Music Factory Uptown Village-Main Lot
1000 NC Music Factory Blvd, Charlotte NC 28206

Saturday Sept 7th, 2013

7:30am until!
1st Saturday of every month!(weather permitting- rain date the 2nd Sat)

I continue to be amazed at the rate and size that Cars and Coffee of Charlotte continues to take on after 5 years. As we continue to reach out and more and more people join the fold we have found that there is a mature car crazed community here and it exceeds my expectations. With growth comes challenges and last month we seemed to have had a number of them amplified. Safety is our top priority at this gathering for both the participants and the vehicles. As the crowd grows we need to be very sensitive to these two entities. Last month we had several individuals that choose to leave the property at high rates of speed as well as do burnouts to show off for the crowd that has started to line the driveways. We had a near accident last month that put some bystanders in jeopardy which would have been tragic as well as would have ended our event as we know it. The owner of the NC Music Factory and Mattie's have been very gracious to lend us this property to gather and we want to make sure that we respect their hospitality, but they will not do it if this type of behavior continues. If this type of behavior continues we will not have a gathering place and C&C will end as you know it. At this size and scope there are not many places that can or will accommodate this type of event. Charlotte/Mecklenburg's finest from the Police department have agreed to make an appearance and help keep this event civil. I am restating the rules here on this forum but I know that a lot of individuals that come do not see these each month so for those of you that do please spread the word and help us keep this event going and growing here at the NC Music Factory.

Here are the rules:

-Absolutely no burnouts or horse play in the lot or the roads out front. It is irresponsible and safety is a huge concern for us. Violators will be asked not to return and the mater will be turned over to the CMPD.
-The Uptown division of the Mecklenburg police department are well aware of our event and will patrol the area. Speeding and unlawful behavior will not be tolerated on the public road out front or on the NC Music Factory's property.
-No vendors will be allowed to set up tables, booths or tents. As before you can hand out fliers if you wish but no signage or structures allowed.
-Trailers, box trucks and haulers will be asked to use lot #2 for parking, spaces are at a premium and these vehicles take up too much space and maneuvering them around is too high a risk for accidents.
-We need to leave the facilities better than we find them on each visit. NC Music Factory is letting us use this facility free of charge so we need to respect it, there are trash cans throughout the property please do please do not litter.
-Parking nearest to the Diner is reserved for regular restaurant patrons. We have the other 662 spaces!

If you have not been before it is truly a gathering of gear heads with everything you can imagine. It is fun to continue to meet new people from all over as well as to see what interesting and beautiful vehicles they pull up in. Please if you know friends and family that would enjoy this event and would like to bring their cherished rides out, please do. Come out and enjoy and continue to spread the word. We are getting more and more interesting vehicles from classics, to groups, to muscle and one off creations, keep them coming!

Hope to see you Saturday and thank you for helping this event stay safe and in place for years to come!



See you Saturday

Michael

There was a great 97 D90 that was really ticked out. I circled around a few times but never met the owner. I think it was too young ladies, but by the time that I saw them they were pulling out. I was hoping to talk to ask questions about all the work that they had done to the vehicle. I hope you get a chance to come back to C&C in the future. Sorry I missed you.

Sorry no photos! Wasn't thinking. It was set up pretty nice, it was a 97 ST, British Racing Green, Win winch and front bumper. It had a cage on top with a pretty intense light bar and set up. The rear bench was converted to jump seats and it has a Badger II top on it. Nicely done and well maintained. Looked in great shape. Really wish I had had a chance to catch up to the ladies.
