Amid Malloy Tax Proposals, Greenwich Cars and Coffee Comes Back

The event comes as Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) looks for ways to fill Connecticut's budget deficit with proposals like a tax hike on classic car owners.

Automotive enthusiasts rejoice! According to Greenwich Times, organizers Steven Fong, Leland Graham, and Sebastian Dostmann, founders of Greenwich Cars & Coffee, are planning new meet ups of “rare and exotic cars,” with the first set date in April:

A successful first event that attracted around 100 people and cars lead to a second in November that drew another 150. This month, Dostmann, the group’s events producer and owner of Greenwich-based Sebass Events & Entertainment, gained approval from the town Board of Selectmen to close a portion of the avenue for their four events planned for this year. The first is set for Sunday, April 30, from 8 to 10 a.m.

From Lime Rock Park to Greenwich Concours D’elegance, classic auto shows and car clubs, and informal auto meetups on the Berlin Turnpike have grown into important parts of Connecticut’s culture.
