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.

JBA Coffee & Cars — October 12, 2014

It’s not the free coffee and donuts. It’s the cars and the people. Pretty much every Coffee & Cars at JBA Speed Shop turns out the same. Lots of cool cars show up filled with lots of interesting people. Everybody hangs out and checks out the machinery. The burnouts are fun; after all, where else are you going to see a Pacer burn rubber.  But the conversations are great too. So if you’re a motorsports enthusiast, lets keep it going. Support your local speed shop so there will be a place for events like this. Okay, off the soap box. Check out the gallery of pictures for more of the story.

Mustangs by the Bay 2014

Mustangs by the Bay is one of the best car shows in San Diego every year. The event is hosted by the San Diego Mustang Club and features over 300 “Stangs”. The cars make the show, but the location isn’t half bad! Held near Seaport Village at the Embarcadero Marina Park North, pony cars cover the grassy knolls that rise above the marina on one side and the harbor on the other. The Blue-Oval Loyal gathered this year on Sunday, October 5, 2014 and the San Diego weather, as usual, was perfect. JBA Speed Shop has supported Mustangs by the Bay and the San Diego Mustang Club for many, many years and Team JBA always turns out in force...
