    So it seems like "Car Shows I Have Known" week I should tell you about this one. It's just called Cars & Coffee and it happens early every saturday morning in the parking lot of Ford's west coast offices. It's free for everyone, and it's just a bring what you've got kinda thing, and lasts till around 9 am or so.

    Typically one or more clubs will organize a gathering. On my first weekend there I arrived to see this:

    If all of the colors are too hard to take we can stick with the old standby

    Are you a little more old school?

    Don't like Orange? No problem, how about an SV version in Red?

    This picture is a poor representation of the sweet Blue leather job inside

    Much nicer than this Purple Diablo with Ostrich skin. Notice too, that more then one person decided that would make a good color for an exotic car.

    Enough of the Lambo's you say?

    A little jaded after Baldy's thread aren't you.:nod Well my pictures won't be as good, but I have my share of oddballs to display.

    How about a Stillen-tweaked Ford GT

    I won't bore you with my shitty Bugatti pics, but there was one there. It was a first time for me.

    So instead I will show you a very curvy modern rendition of a Bizzarrini- something I had never heard of

    This was sweet, and smooth. I wanted to rub myself up against it

    Here are few Cobras to whet your appetite.

    What can be said?

    Shhhhh, you're not supposed to tell anyone about this wonderful free show!:D Show originally strated out in Crystal Cove on PCH and then had to move because too many found out about it....

    Actually, you're 205'd by a few months since I posted this in the West Regional forum..... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=342945&highlight=cars+coffee

    I've gone maybe 15 times and never fail to be amazed at the crazy stuff that shows up... Future of this show is somewhat in jeopardy since Ford Sucks and they're closing the PAG site where the show is held. Moving all op's back to Detroit..... Also, a few asshats have ruined the show by doing burnouts, donuts, etc.. on the public streets, jeopardizing the safety of hundreds of spectators. Just ask the guy in the Cobra who wound up in the planter or the guy in the Supra who lost control during a high speed fly-by... Now the Irvine PD is stationed at the exit every week to keep a lid on these antics.

    Look at how long I've been holding these pictures. On that note I had only read about the Vector W2, but that morning I saw 3 of them!
    Here's a roadster

    Okay, I see that you've been holding the photos for over a year, so all is forgiven! Anyhow, this is by far the best "free" weekly car show in CA. You never know what you'll see in term of cars or people. Just about every car freak who's "in the know" in So. CA attends this show. If anyone is in the area, you've got to attend. Saturday mornings, get there by 7 a.m. Grab a nice cup of joe and cruise around looking at all the great cars, trophy wives, and maybe even run into Chip Foose or Jay Leno. It's a very low key event, very little attitude.:D

    My buddy who owns a few Lotus' (Loti?) tells stories of the days when it was a small event in Crystal Cove and the Ferrari drivers would have some best burnout contests exiting the private lot. Those days are gone now that the show has moved to the Peoples Republic of Irvine, but still a great show.

    IMO, exotics never got any better than this.


    There's a color combo for 968's that's pretty much universally loathed. It's Purple w/magenta. I haven't found anyone bold (or stupid) enough to post a pic of their car, but here's one of the interior to give you some idea:

    My apologies to those of you how just ate. :D

    I used to go to this when it was in Crystal Cove. Neat small show that just kept growing. There are condo's just above the parking lot and I guess the folks that lived there got tired of all the noise early on Saturday mornings. Can't say as I blame them. Wondered where it had moved. Where on Alton is it? Off McArthur?

    Thanks,

    It's at the Ford PAG design center... Right off the 5 at Alton, you can't miss it. Just look for the parking lot cramed with exotics.....

    They recently started a show in Vegas and another in Omaha and Jacksonville.
