ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The fourth season of Cars and Coffee is underway a month later than originally planned.

The event attempted to kick off in April but was postponed due to snow. It was a very different story this time around as all sorts of cars were there.

Chevy Camaros to some of the oldest models of Ford’s Model T were on hand for attendees to see. Katie’s Cup was also there selling coffee and doughnuts along with merchandise.

Organizers were excited to see most of the lots full at the start of the show, even overflowing to other lots. This is something coordinator Curt Kellermann says is a good problem to have.

“This is huge. The weather is beautiful, this is one of a few downtown events and it’s awesome to get people down here,” Kellermann said. “Our main goal down here is to build community. There’s nothing better than car guys bringing their cars down, standing around drinking a cup of coffee and talking.”

Cars and Coffee happens every first Saturday of the month through October from 9 to noon.
