From the Washington Post article, by John Kelly, October 2014, “Visiting a great car show in Great Falls, Va”:
“On a sunny Saturday morning, up to 400 cars show up to Katie’s. Mike schedules 10 baristas starting at 5 a.m. to serve the crowd. He’ll sell more than 1,000 cups of coffee.
The show starts early — some owners start pulling in around 5 a.m. to snag the best spots — and is pretty much over by 9:30, when the shopping center wakes up. It’s like getting a glimpse of an African watering hole where exotic animals come together briefly then disperse to their native habitats.”
From Mike Kearney:
“Last year, we had two Bugatti Veyrons here on two different days,” Mike said. “Three months ago — and they didn’t even know each other — we had two F-40 Ferraris here. Where can you see that, especially in this area?”
What makes Katie’s so special, Mike said, is that “it doesn’t matter what the car is. If it’s unique and it’s a love of yours, I can guarantee that somebody else here will love it. You just bring what you have and show it to other enthusiasts.”
