My siblings have been BMW/Porsche owners for quite some time and my wife and I are the last to jump in the euro car ownership so there's more of us to meet, chill and chat in our part of town :P

One of these days we can meet-up at Coffee and Cars and talk shop....

You have to go at least once my friend. You will see a plethora of exotics, JDM tuners, Domestic muscle cars, classics and bizarre automobiles owned by Houstonians.

We usually arrive there at 7am and at that time, the parking lot is starting to fill-up with cars and people. We are there until 9-930am to head back down to our part of town but people usually stay around 1030am .
