For over 14 years, every month on the first Saturday, a group called PV Seniors (www.pvseniors.org) hosts a terrific car show. It's called "Coffee & Cars", at the Peninsula Center in Rolling Hills Estates, California. Yes, every first Saturday, rain or shine (it never rains in Southern California!), and that's amounted to quite a long time!
And here's the thing: it's free for the car owners, it's free to the public, and it's from 7:30AM to 9:00AM...it doesn't tie anyone up for the whole day!
Turnout for the show is almost universally over 100 cars and the parking lot gets pretty full.
I alternate each month between the Daytona Coupe and the G.T. 350...no preferential treatment and I like to give them equal opportunity to show off!
And here's another cool thing about Coffee & Cars: the variety of cars is always changing, sometimes eclectic, but always interesting....
This is a one-off "Hirsch", named after the builder (different owner nowadays). Quite Cobra-like, and a Ford 289 powerplant.
'67 G.T. 350
One of the finest FFRs around and a consistent show winner!
