Middletown, Ohio – We try to get up to Horsepower Farm a few times each year. With plenty of parking spots on the sprawling grounds, its regular Cars & Coffee events typically draw in an amazing mix of unique and remarkable vehicles, along with plenty of friendly car folks (including some we’ve befriended before). With warm, dry weather in the forecast, this past weekend’s show didn’t disappoint, either.

Take a stroll through our photo gallery below—and remember, car show season doesn’t end with Labor Day, so make sure to check your local car show event calendar to see what’s going on in and around your town.
