Having missed last month’s event, I was back at the Truganina Cars & Coffee event this September. It still remains one of the most consistently diverse and family-friendly events around town, and such is simply the reason I keep can’t help but come back month after month.

Cars & Coffee is held on the first Saturday of every month, at the Foresite Driver Training facility in Truganina, about 20 minutes outside of the Melbourne CBD. Enjoy the photos below, and check out their Facebook to keep up to date on their monthly meets.


This Lancer was one of the first cars that caught my eye. We covered a small growing Itasha scene here on Zen, and I’m all for seeing more and more cars bearing such cool designs.

Everytime I see this A5, it is a different colour. From a matte blue, to brown to- now- white.


I’ve seen this ZN6 at a few meets around town, and I’m fascinated by its mismatched fender that looks to be from HKS’ D1GP 86. I have so many questions for the owner. What’s the story? Is it real? Where did you find it? The notion of a retired race car pice on a street car seems so cool to me. Add’s a bit of history to the car’s story.
