Chamber of Commerce,
with  Fairfield-based  
Concours Consulting Partners,
invites you to the first
 Concours d'Caffeine,
a gathering of classic car and modern day car club enthusiasts.

Modeled after a growing national trend of morning car club gatherings,  

Concours d'Caffeine is the brain child of the same group of residents Bill Scheffler, John Shuck, Tim Walsh, and Frank Taylor who put together the

very popular Concours d'Eligance, formerly held at the Hunt Club.


This event will be held on Railroad Place and all the streets and parking lots adjacent

to the Saugatuck train station from 8am to 11am on Sunday May 17th.

 The event is open to the public, to bring their own cars to participate and for families and individuals to come and see all the beautiful automobiles.


The special theme of the event will be on Railroad Place, a featured exhibit of Connecticut's significant role in automotive history in the US as well as the role Saugatuck played in this history.  In 1905, the Saugatuck-based Toquet Motor Car  

and Construction Company, a manufacturer of automotive parts,  

built a few 5-seater touring cars. 


On display will be a dozen examples of classic vehicles designed and/or manufactured  

in Connecticut.  Some of these will include the classic Pope Hartford, the exciting Bridgeport Locomobiles, and classic Trumbulls, to the more recent Fitch Phoenix,   

Sprint, and especially the Cunningham C3, designed by Briggs Cunningham,

a race car driver and sportsman from Westport.

87 Post Road East,
