C&O was started about nine years about at a Panera Bread in Marietta, Ga and has outgrown a number of locations, steadily growing over the years to a new record set at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, GA last Sunday at an estimated 2500 vehicles!  It is now owned by the third owner, Bruce Piefke, who clearly has a handle on how to make it better and better.  Over the years, the numbers have intimated some of the owners of the older more classic cars, yet there still is a highly respectable…
