Here's a spot we had high hopes for but were somewhat let down. Cars and Coffee has been happening every Saturday morning at Ford's PAG (Premier Automotive Group) facility in Irvine for a few years now. We'd heard good things about the show but had never been there. We sped out of the Donut Derelicts lot at 9 a.m., heading just a few more miles down the freeway to Irvine. This would be a great show if you're into late-model Japanese sports cars—we've never seen so many Honda S2000s and Acura NSXs together in one place before. But there was very little in the way of American muscle. We hung out for about an hour before calling it quits.
This was one show where we were relieved to see a '69 Camaro. Believe it or not, this was the only one there. END
Eurotrash was also well represented when the corporate lawyers and hedge-fund managers arrived to the delight of their adoring fans. An impromptu swinging door contest broke out.
It wasn't all wine and cheese here, though. There were at least four muscle cars to look at. The fuelie split-window Corvette was especially nice.
