About Anthem Cars and Coffee, LLC.
Local car enthusiasts have been meeting in the parking lot of the Shops at Anthem at 3434 W Anthem Way at 8 am on the first Saturday of each month.
The Cars & Coffee reboot comes none too soon for its growing numbers of faithful followers. Sixty cars rolled up for the October 2019 inaugural event. This past June, more than 100 cars arrived with at least as many spectators in their wake. And the numbers continue to grow.
It all began when Brian Sheehan, a regular customer at Amped Coffee, and Keith Walashek, who co-owns the cafe with his wife Jeanine, had a chat that turned into an idea that evolved into a happening. Sheehan is a bonafide "car guy." He spent much of his life building racecars, running race shops, driving racecars professionally, and, of course, going to a car show.
The vehicles at Cars & Coffee are diverse: American muscle, off-roaders, and tricked-out tuners, sweet rides babied from the showroom, and maybe even a treasure found buried in a barn.
For now, he is pleased with the event's trajectory, in large part because "the car show is always where you make your best contracts and friend."
