It’s a traditional park and walk around looking at cars. Since it is monthly we all know each other, the town of Leander it taken over for the day – music, …etc. Sometime 400 cars, sometime 100…. Not the ‘tuner’ crowd.
It’s sponsored by John Eagle – so Lotuses get top billing….
• 2 January - classic, vintage and antique Aston Martin, Bentley, Lotus, Rolls Royce
• 6 February - British Invasion (Austin-Healey, British Motor Company, Land Rover, MG, McLaren, Mini, Noble, Prodrive, Rover, TVR, Vauxhall, etc.) and of course Aston Martin, Bentley, Lotus and Rolls Royce

Hill Country Drives - > Hill Country Drives | Spirited monthly drives through the Texas Hill Country - Monthly/Bi-Monthly Drives
This is typically a bunch of higher-end sports cars – go on a 60-90min run through a secret location. You get moving… so it’s not for the faint hearted, but always nice to pass a $200k car…
F1 Watch Party - > F1WatchParty.com - Local Business - Austin | Facebook - Every Sunday that an F1 race is on.
They replay the F1 race in the Cool River bar (which is closed for this event) – big screen, prizes, announces on F1, charity stuff, …etc
The Cool River parking lot becomes a car show of high-end cars – about an hour before the race. The Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo, …etc clubs all come. John Eagle is one of the sponsors.
Regular car shows –
- Mean Streets - Meanstreets Car Shows has a few shows over the course of the year – more of a ‘tuner’ crowd
- Heat Wave - 2011 Texas Heat Wave | Heat Wave Custom Truck and Car Shows - huge show….
- ACX [AutoConXepts] Automotive - Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More - once in a while parking lot get togethers….
