Ground Up’s Cars & Coffee 2020

***UPDATE*** While things look to be getting back to normal in some places throughout the US, things here in
Connecticut are still a bit uncertain. As of the last update from the Governor, it’s looking like some restrictions will begin to ease starting May 20, 2020. While the state will begin looking to ease social distancing policies and expand the list of essential businesses we feel that it is still too soon to have a parking lot full of cars and people. Again while we want nothing more than to see our customers fill up our lot and get you guys some much needed social time, the health and safety of both our staff and customers are our top priority.

As of today, we will be canceling all Cars and Coffee events for the month of May and will be moving our season

opener to June 20th, 2020. We know this is not what some of you wanted to hear and we hate to make this
announcement but at this time it is what we have to do to continue playing our part in curbing the spread. We will continue to monitor the situation through May and provide any further updates here.

Ground Up’s 2020 Cars & Coffee Season!

We’re bringing it back again for 2020! Last year’s Cars & Coffee was an abundant success and we’re pleased to bring it back for 2020 for those who enjoyed the event and for those who weren’t able to attend last year. Come out and enjoy a cup of coffee & breakfast treats on us and meet up with like-minded individuals who share the same passion for automobiles as you do! All makes and models are welcome although we’d like to emphasize classic Chevrolet muscle cars. There is no entrance fee for this event and space is limited, the first 80 cars in attendance will receive a FREE goodie bag compliments of Ground Up!

Q: Can I save parking spaces for someone else or others in my group/club?

A: Reserving parking spaces is not permitted. Parking is on a first come first serve basis due to the size of our parking lot. If you’re planning on attending with a group/club we recommend meeting up prior to the show and coming together, this is the only way to guarantee close proximity to each other.

Q: I don’t have a car, can I come and spectate?

A: Unfortunately, due to limited space this event does not allow spectators. We hope future Cars & Coffee events will allow for this but for the time being they are not permitted.

Q: I’m not coming to the event, can I still pick up parts?

A: Yes, our showroom will be open during our cars and coffee event and may even have some day of show specials!

Q: I transport my car via trailer, will you have space to park trailers?

A: No, due to limitations on space and it being a business day trailers are not permitted. All cars in attendance must be driven to and from the event.

Q: What happens when your lot fills-up? 

A: Due to spacing restrictions we can only fit so many cars in our lot for Cars & Coffee. Ground Up, Inc. reserves the right to turn cars away once the lot reaches maximum capacity. This is why we recommend coming bright and early to get into our show.
