Cars & Coffee is one of those meets you do not want to miss if you are a true automotive enthusiast. From high-end luxurious cars to Classics, Cars & Coffee is a weekly Saturday meet opened to everyone. Here's an introduction of the meet on the official website:
Welcome to Cars and Coffee™ Irvine. This site is dedicated to the car enthusiast. Cars and Coffee™ is a weekly Saturday morning gathering in Irvine, California where hundreds of proud drivers congregate to kick tires and have a cup of coffee. There is something for everyone to enjoy; classics, exotics, concepts, hotrods, motorcycles and motor-sport. And it’s all free, minus the coffee of course.There are approximately thirteen locations in the US that have great turnouts
(More information can be found at Cars & Coffee's official website) and being hungry to attend an event after a months worth of nothing, I woke up at 5:30am for an hour drive to Irvine, CA.
One of the reasons why I decided to head out to this event was because of the positive reviews by those who attend or from those who show their cars. I was very skeptical to see tons of rides already parked at the headquarters of Mazda in Irvine. It was about 7:10am and the place was overcrowded with people holding a cup of coffee and walking around taking photos and talking with car owners.
|As mentioned on their website, this meet is opened for any automobiles. It doesn't matter if you have a car or not.|
|Classics were rolling in and out.|
Sexy Red Classics, like this 328 GTS and Porsche 911, was parked right next to the entrance.
|Many JDM cars were present as well.|

|Mismatched rims? Doesn't matter!|
