After another long break from my regular Cars & Coffee attendance (who thought school would require so much homework!) I woke up bright and early on a Saturday morning to drive over to the Aliso Viejo Town Center to see what the latest round of other earlybirds brought to the meet. Continue reading

Last week I attended the OC Fairgrounds version of Cars & Coffee and honestly, I was pretty disappointed by the turnout having gotten used to the insanity that the Irvine meet turned into.  Luckily the Aliso Viejo version of the meet seems to be where the majority of the attendance has shifted to so I had plenty to drool over and snap shots of!

When my alarm went off at 5:45 AM this morning my instinct was to hit snooze and skip my regular pre-work shower.  Thankfully I realized my alarm was not set for work but for the weekly Cars & Coffee meet held in Irvine, so I jumped out of bed with my new found motivation, downed a bowl of cereal, grabbed the stale remainder of yesterday’s thermos of french roast, and hopped on the freeway for my overdue dose of the early morning automotive mosaic that is Cars & Coffee.
