CC Meet-Up: Destination LA


While auto enthusiasts across the Northeast and Midwest are wrapping up car show season and storing their classics for the long winter, out here in California car shows keep plugging along through November, December and January.  For example, on the first Saturday of every month, a gathering of classic cars occurs here on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (The blue star on the map).

I’m suggesting a CC Meet-Up for the November 2nd event. If Los Angeles area site visitors are interested in meeting some of your fellow CC readers, contributors and posters, mark it on your calendar. Of course, there is some bad news. Like many other LA car events, the Peninsula Coffee and Cars event starts at 7:30 AM and breaks up at 9 AM. However, since this is our first shot at an LA based Meet-Up, a tight schedule gets us more people in the same place at the same time.

If there’s a solid turn out, there are plenty of other venues to support future LA Meet-Ups. Potential Spots include the Doughnut Derelicts in Huntington Beach, Cars and Coffee down in Irvine, or even Bob’s Big Boy up in the valley (a potential evening meet). For now, mark November 2nd on your calendars, and I’ll post the location information and identify a CC event gathering point on Friday the 1st. BTW- If you have your own Classic and you’d like to show off, the event is free and accepts cars on a first come equals best parking spot basis. Thanks, D/S
