JBA Coffee & Cars — January 11, 2015

In San Diego when you’re scheduling an event, your chances are pretty good that it’s not going to rain. No luck today…but Coffee & Cars at JBA Speed Shop rolls on rain or shine. It’s just that shine is better! We thank everyone that came out to play in the rain, including Jon Whitledge and his Magic Bus featuring a 4600-watt sound system and super high- resolution compact discs with music from Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and many more. Check out the gallery for more of the story.

28th Annual Burger Run — January 10, 2015

Joe and Bruce host a great car show. It really is the “Biggest, Little Car Show in San Diego County”. It’s called the Burger Run and today was the 28th annual edition. Over 600 hot rods, customs, muscle cars and resto-mods rolled into the Pepper Tree Frosty in Vista, California filling the parking lot and surrounding streets. The event is “participant friendly” since there’s a donut shop and buger joint nearby, the trophy presentation is in the early afternoon so folks aren’t kept hanging on, and the $10 entry fee includes a t-shirt and dash plaque. The trophies are unique to say the least. You’ve got to see them to believe them. All in all, it’s a cool car show run by cool people. Check out the gallery for a small sample of the many bitchin’ cars at the show!

JBA Coffee & Cars — December 14, 2014

It was a brisk Sunday morning in Kearny Mesa, but that didn’t discourage a large group of high performance enthusiasts from gathering at JBA Speed Shop for the December edition of Coffee & Cars. Showstoppers included a brand new white Z28 Camaro, an Aston Martin Lagonda, an original 427 Cobra, and an 800-hp twin turbo Factory Five roadster. And that’s just a few of the standouts. Big thanks go out to everyone that makes this monthly event so much fun. Check out the gallery for more of the story.

C.O.C.O.A. at Willow Springs — October, 2014

Casual, sensible, safe, fast and fun!  The Cobra Owners Club of America (COCOA) did it again with another fine open track event at Willow Springs on October 25 and 26, 2014. A diverse combination of (mostly) Ford-powered vehicles gathered for the chance to run on “The Fastest Track in the West”. The cars were split into four run groups and each pack got five sessions on Saturday and four on Sunday…an ample opportunity to drive the cars as they were meant to be driven! From the tech inspection, to the driver’s meeting, to the on-track sessions…everything ran like clockwork. A big thank you to Lynn and Tom for all the work that goes into making this such an excellent event. Check out the pictures for more of the story.
