On the last Saturday of each month, the Streetside Classics facility in Mesa holds its “Caffeine & Classics” gathering, where free coFFee and donuts are provided. On this October 29th event, the weather was picture-perfect for a cool car and truck gathering. The turnout was a little light, thanks to several big car show events happening around the valley, including the “Wings N Wheels” event just 10 miles away at Falcon Field in Mesa. What makes “Caffeine & Classics” so neat are all the different vehicles that show up from 9:am until noon, but especially the several hundred vehicles that are For Sale right there in the gigantic climate-controlled display facility. It’s like a huge Car Show under the lights and every one is for sale. You can also consign your vehicle right there on the spot. The Streetside Classics consignment process is a great way to sell your specialty vehicle. They do tremendous marketing to get the vehicle sold and there is NO COST to the consignor. In 2021 the Streetside Classics facilities across America, sold over 3700 Classics, Muscle Cars & Trucks, and collectible vehicles. Saturday November 26th is the next “Caffeine & Classics” gathering at Streetside Classics in Mesa just two blocks from the U.S. 60 freeway o Mesa Drive, then south one block to Auto Center Drive, then one block to Streetside Classics.
