Exclamation Edmunds inside line went to CARS AND COFFEE!

Edmunds came to cars and coffee and took there long term test car! A sliver 2SS test car! here is the link!

got up early Saturday morning. Very early. Alarm went off at 5 AM. I didn't even know there was a 5 AM. But the gang from were heading down to Cars and Coffee in Irvine (about 60 miles south of my house) and I had agreed to come along in our long-term SS.

"We'll be getting there at 5:30," they told me. "You know, so we can all park together before it gets crowded."

"Well, save me a spot," I replied.

And it's a good thing they did. I rolled in about 6:30 to find about 25 Camaros waiting for me, along with nearly 400 other cars, ranging from a street driven 1970 Porsche 917 to the most beautiful Datson 1600 Roadster I've ever seen. I arrived just as the sun came up and what a sight it was, all those new Camaros in the same place at the same time.

Many of them with modifications as you can see in the photos below. And while I can live without the scissor doors, the blacked out treatement and creative use of badging I saw on more than one example does appeals to me. As does a big roots-type supercharger.

It reminded me that owning a car like a Camaro is more than about the vehicle. You basically become part of a family. And that's a big part of the fun. Saturday morning was a blast.
