Caffeine and Carburetors (Official)

September 18, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am EDT


Caffeine & Carburetors is a gathering of automotive enthusiasts. We meet at Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee in New Canaan, CT to enjoy our rides and share them with like-minded gear heads hiding in and around Connecticut and New York. Smaller, informal gatherings occur every Sunday morning throughout the year with 4 larger events in the spring, summer, and fall. This is one of those larger events.

We have a tendency to lean toward sports cars, with the occasional Model A or 1920′s Rolls Royce, but our emphasis is on foreign sports cars. We enjoy all vehicles and there are no sponsorships or awards.

Doug Zumbach began hosting these gatherings in 1995. These Sundays start around 8 am to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee followed by a leisurely drive through the countryside.

Caffeine and Carburetors is a way to indulge the gear head in all of us.

Being a gathering and not a juried event, there is no registration, and events are free for all.

The event officially starts at 8:00 am, but if you’re showing your car, plan on getting there at the crack of dawn to get a good parking space.
