This Saturday was a red letter day for Southern California automotive enthusiasts. For the past several years some of the most rare and exotic cars that are still roadworthy have gathered informally each Saturday morning at Crystal Cove Promenade (a really upscale strip mall on Pacific Coast Highway) in Newport Beach, California. And for nearly that long, the Center’s owner, the Irvine Company, has been giving the group a hard time about it. Finally, after threats, resident complaints, lots of orange traffic cones, and probably a dozen or so lawyers, the informal Crystal Cove auto show got the boot.

Ford to the rescue! Ford’s Premier Auto Group stepped in before the show’s walking papers were even dry and invited all those owners, enthusiasts and incredible cars to come by their place at the Premier Automotive Group and Mazda North American Operations campus. Saturday, October 21st was the first Cars and Coffee, and based on the turn out of about 350 cars, Ford’s invitation was heartily accepted.

David Barrett, a frequent visitor to Crystal Cove has a new place to hang out early on Saturday mornings.
