My son and I headed to Blackhawk, CA. It’s a very very affluent town at the base of Mount Diablo. We met up with my buddy Jordan for their monthly Cars n Coffee show. As usual, there were some amazing cars there. For me the best part of these shows aren’t the super cars and high-end luxury. It’s the old cars, and the mint condition SUVs and oddities.
I drove up in the Westy and popped the top. Before too long we were one of the big attractions as well. Here are some shots.

A couple weeks ago, my father-in-law came to town with crew passes for the Laguna-Seca classic car races outside of Monterey. I drove down with him, my son, and buddy Jordan from Car and Driver. We saw some of the most amazing cars ever.
I finally got a chance to post pictures from the event.

Still one of my favorites on the hill
I saw this golden beauty parked in front of the office today. This mint condition late model Synchro had a CalPoly sticker on the back. Wondering if it might be someone’s from GoWesty.
I have been pinning over this 1969 Boss Mustang that a nearby neighbor of mine owns. He rarely gets it out. So the other day, he was cleaning his garage and I had to stop by and talk to him about it.
This style of Mustang is one of my top 10 favorite cars of all time.
Oh yeah. Looking good. Spotted outside the bike shop.
Spotted this guy around town. Not sure what year it is, I think it’s a ’65 or ’66. If you look closely in the window shot, you can see that it’s signed by Carroll Shelby.
I spotted this beauty in Livermore. It had a big old sticker on the back saying something about Jesus and a stack of bibles on the passenger seat. I can picture the driver now with long flowing gray hair and a shitload of turquoise jewelry. Surely someone who has been to hell and back.
He didn’t find Jesus, Jesus found him.
Forget the Porsche in front.
Some kind of Plymouth. Not sure if it’s a kit or restore. I think it’s the former.
I’ll have to consult my son, but I think this is a McLaren P1. I really don’t know this make very well, but still a very sleek looking care. Spotted at Road America racetrack.
