West Chester, Ohio – We went back to one of our favorite local haunts for another Cars & Coffee this past weekend, and as always, we tip our hats to the Cars & Coffee West Chester and Grainworks Brewing Company folks for another great event.

Some really unique stuff pulled into the lot too, including an original Paxton-supercharged Studebaker Avanti, an R31 Nissan Skyline, and plenty of modified late model muscle. See it all below:

We’ve got to talk about this Avanti. The original round-headlight Studebaker models were only made in 1962 and 1963, so they’re already special—but wait until you see what’s under the hood… (Image/OnAllCylinders)
