Whether you’re a muscle car, supercar or JDM fan, yesterday’s Cars and Coffee at Prestige BMW of Ramsey showed that car guys (and girls), no matter what they drive, can come together and enjoy other people’s rides. Personally, I’m a sucker for older JDM cars (one of my favorites is the R33 Skyline) and late 80s-early 90s American Muscle, but what really got me excited were the pre-2005 BMW’s that were there, especially the 850CSi and the collection of M Coupes. What was your favorite car at the show?

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
With 2014 closer than you think, Chevy is bringing the name Stingray to their Corvette collection — something that will definitely give you the chills. Coming off the line with a LT1 6.2-liter V8 and an estimated 450 horsepower, the rejuvenated Stingray will be the center of attention. GM reports that the Stingray will sprint from 0-60 in under 4 seconds. One of the new features to the transmission is you will be able to choose from a 6-speed automatic or a 7-speed manual. The Stingray will be engineered with the lightest and stiffest aluminum material to date. The hood and roof of The Stingray will be made out of carbon fiber material making the car lighter and quicker. The 2014 Stingray will begin to be sold in the second half of 2013 along with the Z51 performance package.

27th Annual Tri-State International Auto Show
On January 26, we traveled to the 27th Annual Tri-State International Auto Show which was held at Rockland Community College in Suffern, New York. Although nowhere near as large as the New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center around March and April, the show in Suffern gave us a good preview of the new 2013 cars. Check out some of our pictures!
