Bernie's Car Show Coverage: Photos from Caffeine and Exotics: August 2016

Aug 24, 2016



Last Sunday was Atlanta’s most luxurious and exclusive car show- Caffeine and Exotics. Since the show is now a bi-monthly show, luxury and exotic car owners haven’t been dragging their feet to enter their cars so spectators (like me) can admire them.



Held in the main parking lot of Atlanta’s Lenox Square Mall, Caffeine and Exotics is the younger sibling to Caffeine and Octane. From Bentleys, Lamborghinis, McLarens, Ferraris, BMWs, Nissan GTRs, Audis, Dodge Vipers, and more, Caffeine and Exotics gives Atlanta something to look forward to… every other month.


This month had a couple of surprises. One of which was the unveiling to the new Bentley SUV, the Bentayga. I'm going to be completely honest, Bentley's models are a hit or a miss with me. I absolutely adore the Bentley Continental, but I can't seem to appreciate some of the older models, like the Arnage and the Azure. Although the Bentley Continental has a special place in my heart, I'm not a fan of the Bentayga. It's part Mulsanne and part Audi Q5. And two.... I'm fortunately to have already seen the Bentayga earlier this year at the New York Auto Show.

I'm sure you've realized that I showed the same car twice. I had to show off the widebody Ferrari F12 Berlinetta again. That's how good it looked. But to see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's Caffeine and Exotics: August 2016 gallery.

Bernie's Museum Trip: Back to the Petersen Automotive Museum

Aug 22, 2016

Front of the Petersen Automotive Museum

While I was in Los Angeles, I absolutely had to go back to the Petersen Automotive Museum. Last year, the Petersen went under the knife, had some plastic surgery and underwent an extensive $125 million renovation. Basically everything was changed except the parking garage.



I couldn't wait to see the new changes.... and also the cars. Since the last time I was there in 2014, the interior is completely different- more modern, more interactive, and the vehicles are displayed as they're pieces of art (and they are).

BMW Z4 Roadster in the BMW and the Art of the Automobile exhibit.

1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic in the Rolling Sculpture Exhibit.

The first floor focused on automotive artistry with BMW and the Art of the Automobile and Rolling Sculpture Exhibits.

1967 Ford GT40 Mark III in the Race Cars for the Road exhibit 
1933 Pierce Arrow Silver Arrow in the Precious Metals exhibit
The second floor had more going on with such exhibits as Cars Mechanical Institute, Race Cars for the Road, and Precious Metals.

1915 Ford Model T Runabout in the Why We Love the Automobiles exhibit

1966 Yamaha YDS-3 Batcycle that was on the Batman TV Show at the Automobiles in the Movies exhibit

Keep climbing those stairs to the third floor to take part of such exhibits as Why we Love the Automobile and literally my favorite exhibit- Automobiles in the Movies.

If you love automobiles, going to the Petersen automotive Museum is something you definitely have to experience. To check out the rest of the photos, go to Bernie's Trip to the Petersen Automotive Museum gallery.

Bernie's Car Show Coverage: Photos from Caffeine and Octane: August 2016

Aug 12, 2016



As the months go by, Atlanta's most dependable car show- Caffeine and Octane is getting more and more popular. Held at the Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, Caffeine and Octane allows car enthusiasts from all over to bring their cars and to show them off. It doesn’t matter if you arrive in a Nissan, GTR Skyline, Chevy Chevelle, a sunshine yellow Porsche GT3, Audi R8, or an Oldsmobile 442- just as long as you arrive before the show ends.

Bernie's Car Show Coverage: Moulin Bistro Presents Cars and Cafe

Aug 9, 2016



On July 31st, Moulin Bistro held their monthly Cars and Cafe show in front of their shop in Newport Beach, CA...



I found my way there, literally by finding out about the show a few hours earlier. That morning, I drove from San Diego back to Los Angeles, and made a little stop in Newport Beach in Orange County. I wasn't sure what I was in for, I was just excited to check out a show that I've never been to before.



Much like Caffeine and Exotics in Atlanta, Cars and Cafe is a exotic car show. Not even so much luxury and exotic cars, but simply just exotic cars. I wasn't there long, only stayed for an hour, since the show was from 7-9am. There were Audi R8s, a classic Ford Shelby, many Lamborghini Aventadors, Gallardos and Hurancans, plenty of Ferraris, a Porsche 918 Spyder and a Porsche GT Carrera, and more.



Hopefully I will be able to return for another show. If I do, I definitely should have tried some coffee. To see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's Cars and Cafe Gallery.

Bernie's Car Show Coverage: 2016 Extreme Autofest

Aug 8, 2016



For the past couple of years, I've mentioned on this blog that I always wanted to go to the Extreme Autofest show. Extreme Autofest is a car show that is basically opened to all cars- tuners, lowriders, and exotic cars are in one location. On July 30th, I followed through with what I wanted to do, and I attended the Extreme Autofest show at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.



Unfortunately, everything didn't go as planned. I arrived there much later than I intended- due to traffic and flight delays. However, spending 90 minutes at a car show is much better than not being able to go at all. San Diego was fun, or the little bit of the city I was able to see. All in all, I still had fun and most importantly, I got to photograph some cars I've never seen before.


Next year, I will be planning things differently. San Diego was fun, but I would rather check out the Extreme Autofest show in Anaheim. To see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's 2016 Extreme Autofest: San Diego gallery.
