JBA Coffee & Cars — May 10, 2015

Every time Coffee & Cars at JBA Speed Shop falls on a holiday, we always wonder if folks will come out to spend the morning enjoying high performance cars. By now, we should know not to worry. By 6:30 AM, the parking lot was already filling up and by 7:30 AM the streets were full too. Not as many burnouts today, but there were some good ones (see the video on our facebook page). Our thanks to everyone who makes this such a fun event. And Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. We’re glad you came out this morning, or at least gave a hall pass to your sons and daughters to show up. Check out the gallery for more of the story, and see you next month!

JBA Coffee & Cars — April 12, 2015

Another day in paradise! Nice to see a brand new Hellcat, next to a new Shelby GT500, next to a brand new 2015 Z06 Corvette…parked right in front of our shop for the April edition of JBA Coffee & Cars. Lots of cool cars and people came out to hang out in Kearny Mesa. We featured a 429 on our DTS engine dyno and slapped the new Hellcat on our Mustang chassis dyno for a few break-in passes. The free coffee, donuts and burnouts were just a bonus. Check out the gallery for more of the story. See you next month!

JBA Coffee & Cars — March 8, 2015

It must not be that hard to get up at oh-dark-thirty because literally hundreds of folks show up early at JBA for every Coffee & Cars event. But this morning was particularly tough. The Daylight Savings curse kicked the clocks forward an hour last night so everyone lost 60 minutes of sleep. But nevertheless, the parking lots and streets surrounding JBA were filled before the sun even peaked over the Eastern horizon. A phenomenal, eclectic collection of vehicles made the show. To see a small sample, check out the gallery. And to see and hear a few of the burnouts, see the “Lords of Combustion” video posted today on the JBA Speed Shop facebook page. Thanks to all who make the event happen! You know who you are.

JBA Coffee & Cars — February 8, 2015

JBA is celebrating 30 years of bringing high performance to San Diego, and we were stoked to see a ginormous turnout this morning for Coffee & Cars on the Mesa. The parking lots were full by 7AM and the streets around the shop were packed by 8AM. What a great variety of hot rods, muscle cars, rat rods, customs, sports cars, vans, trucks, race cars and more! We only went through 22 dozen donuts and we lost count of the pots of coffee. We were proud to welcome very special guests—the Warrior Foundation (www.warriorfoundation.com) and Freedom Station (www.freedomstation.org). J. Bittle introduced Dennis and Tim who addressed the crowd with a moving story of how rebuilding his Mach 1 Mustang helped rebuild his mind and body after suffering serious injuries while deployed overseas...
