OC Cars & Coffee

occars&coffee

OC Cars & Coffee The Next Generation starts tomorrow at the OC Fair & Event Center - this had been rumored for a few weeks and they finally got their site online this week, well mostly.

A lot of people were looking forward to this but then they published their entry rules, read them and see what you think...

...most car guys I know don't like rules and these seem a little heavy handed, they're also available here as a pdf file, or click on the pics to see them larger. I'm sure a lot of people will be pissed when they're turned away at the gate because their car isn't good enough. Let's hear what you think!

For now most of us will continue to attend the Aliso Viejo Cars & Coffee which maintains the casual car guy character of the original.

Chihuly Glass at Denver Botanic Gardens

While in Denver, CO yesterday we decided to visit the Chihuly Glass Exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The weather took a sudden chill in Denver yesterday with temps in the 30's and 40's as a front moved in, this is what it looked like in the drizzling cold.

Colorado Grand cars at Independence Pass, Colorado

I'm in Colorado this week and was traveling from Aspen to Colorado Springs yesterday via Independence Pass, as I arrived at the 12,095 ft. elevation summit I spotted these two classics parked on the other side of the road.

These are just two of about 130 cars taking part in this year's Colorado Grand, I ran into a few more later in the day in Salida, CO but I'll post those when I have a faster connection.
