CLASSIC CARS & COFFEE
ABOUT US, OUR HISTORY AND OUR SUPPORTERS
Classic Cars & Coffee, CC&C, is about classic cars and the people who love them. Held in the tranquil leafy car parks of the University of Western Australia it is an opportunity to show your classic car and share your passion with hundreds of other fellow enthusiasts. We did not invent Cars & Coffee as this was started back in the mid 1990s in the UK and the USA and is now in virtually every major city in the world!
Perth’s CC&C event is styled to suit classic, prestige performance and exotic cars for which there are no such events in Perth. For lovers of muscle and customized cars, Perth is well catered for with Custom Cars and Coffee events. Entering the event is easy - arrive, park, drink great coffee, chat and then head home with a smile. See you all there – Deryck Graham and Paul Blank

In May 2016 an invitation went out to a group of club members to bring along their classic cars for a Cars and Coffee style get-together. There were 30 RSVP’s but on a cold winters morning in June 67 wonderful cars turned up. Everyone said, "Oh, we have to do this again."
Just a few months later the first of the Classic Cars and Coffee events happened in the Fred Burton Car Park opposite the café strip in City Beach. To our amazement 150+ amazing classic cars turned up.
Finding a beautiful car park where CC&C could call home was not easy until the supportive team at UWA Events welcomed us to display.
Now we are housed at UWA Car park number 3 along Hackett Drive from October to May and then in the winter months in UWA Business School car park. We continue to grow and evolve so come along enjoy and make history with us.
