Every now and then I torture myself and wake up at the dawn of time on a Saturday so I can make the trip out to the OC (Orange County for you non-California folk) so I can visit one of the best car meets in Southern California, “Cars & Coffee” at the Mazda Corporate campus in Irvine. If this is the first Cars & Coffee post you’ve read from me and are not sure exactly what it is then allow me to explain. Every Saturday morning (emphasis on the “morning”) car enthusiasts from all walks of life and cultures from millionaires with Lamborghinis to your average joe with a classic car to teenagers with modded imports come together to hang out. They check out each others cars, talk shop, take pictures, and as the name suggests consume coffee (there are also donuts if you show up early enough).
Sometimes the variety of cars at this meet can be hit or miss but this weekend was exceptionally good! There were not one but two Ferrari Enzos showed up as well as a classic Porsche LeMans race car (seen above), an all electric powered Lola prototype race car, and a whole section of Shelby Cobras (in honor of Carroll Shelby). There are a few teaser shots below but you can check out the full gallery on our Facebook page. If you have never been to a Cars & Coffee meet you should definitely check one out. I know the thought of waking up at 6am on a Saturday is enough to give you a headache but trust me, it will be worth it! Also don’t worry if you aren’t from Southern California. There are Cars & Coffee meets all over the country and even in different parts of the world! Just go to CarsAndCoffeeOnline.com to find one near you or find out how to start one of your own if there isn’t one near you.
