Cars and Coffee Christmas Edition

It was extremely foggy and bitterly cold, yet two of us braved this unusual California weather to make the pilgrimage to Cars and Coffee. After a weeks worth of rain we where just happy to be out and about without rain drops falling on our heads. Forty-seven degree damp weather be damned!

I even borrowed my brother's '04 Chevy Malibu, just so I could make it to Cars and Coffee on Christmas morning. I seem to have blown out the rear end on my T-bird the previous morning. Max came down in a Pontiac Vibration he had rented as the Mini is in the shop getting some work done. He also dragged the family along. It seems that evil old British Grinch has some heart in him after-all.

A total of maybe 40 cars showed up despite the cold and the terrible conditions. Amongst the cars that showed up we had a Ferrari 275GTB, a Mitsubish i-MiEV, DeTomaso Pantera, some classic Corvettes, Mustangs, Porsches, and more...

Hope you guys enjoy this weekends picks of the pics:

Only in SoCal could you find this kind of dedication to "things automotive", in such weather...

You're the man, Leo!

Reminds me of a story...

A few years ago, after tramping the floors @ SEMA for 3 days, a friend and I went cruising what was then "junkyard row" in Vegas...on N. Hollywood, next to the Speedway. Found some trim parts for a car I was restoring.

Lovely day about 75 degrees and not a cloud to be seen. We're wearing shorts/Ts/sandals (tourist attire). The two guys working there that day were wearing red 'n black Mackinaw wool jackets... The "office" was a 3-sided tin shack (open on the South side) with an big ol' "octopus" pot-belly wood stove with all the ducting outlets capped. My buddy wanders over by the stove, and it's warm...

Laughing, he sez, "Did you guys have a fire going this morning?!"

"Yup", sez one, looking kinda sideways at us. "Where'all you guys from?"

"Great Lakes", my Buddy sez.

"Do you guys get 90-degree weather?"

"Yeah, a few days..."

"Well, how do YOU dress when it's 20 degrees?"

"20? Pretty warmly..."

"Well, we're used to working when it's 110+ with no shade, so when it's 47, like it was this morning, WE dress warmly too!"

It's ALL relative..."perspective", indeed!
