Cars & Coffee: Trancas Country Market, 2.5.2017

All across the world, we petrolheads set our alarms for ungodly hours on Sunday mornings before driving occasionally long distances, before arriving at empty parking lots to stand around and gawk at each other’s incredible garage escapees.

This last Sunday, I stopped by the Trancas Country Market as one does on the first Sunday each month. We’re always trying to cover more of these, so if you know of one in your neck of the woods drop us a line. Who knows, we just might show up.

Have a question about any of the cars pictured? We likely had a chat with most of these cars owners. Just jump in the comments and we’ll get back to you…

I love the early 70s grey BMW 2002 with the slotted wheels, so basic yet so cool.

I was lucky enough to be following the “Teloche” Porsche through the canyons and it led me to Trancas…absolute beauty. Would love to know more about it.
Dreaming about getting into the vintage Porsche game…what’s a good start? Anything around the $20k range?
Also interested in picking up a Leica. Would you say the M240 is worth it over the cheaper Q?
Sorry for so many questions!

The Q is where I started, it’s a tremendous full frame camera that has autofocus and optical image stabilization. Obviously only one lens as it’s fixed, but that isn’t a dealbreaker for most use cases esp. with the digital crop feature. I ultimately wanted to be shooting at 50mm so the m240 was the only option.

If the transaxle models are too new for you, you could try a 912 or 914, not the fastest ones but still awesome.

Is that the same ‘Monaco’ Singer 911 that was featured previously? Great shot of the engine.
Also curious of the camera/lenses you may have used for the shots. Tough overcast day for shooting!

It is indeed the same! I’m shooting on a Leica M240 with a Voigtlander 50mm 1.5
