Cars & Coffee Meet – Irvine

Posted by:

SoCal 8’s put on a GTG and cruise in Orange County – below is eurotuner’s article and pictures. Thanks eurotuner!

We got wind of a large gathering of BMW 8 Series at Cars and Coffee in Irvine, CA last December. Lucky for us Fern Mora was in attendance and was able to provide us some flicks from the event.

Cars and Coffee, for those who haven’t heard, is a local get together every Saturday morning in Orange County. Everyone is welcome to come, grab some coffee and chat about cars. And while the gathering has plenty of cars to drool over, on December 17th a gathering BMW 8 Series took over the parking lot.

Onlookers were amazed to see 29 BMW 8 Series all roll in together. After coffee and kicking tires with the other cars in attendance, 18 of the BMW E31’s took a 42 mile cruise from Irvine through Live Oak Canyon to Newport, then south for lunch at Ruby’s Auto Diner in Laguna Beach, CA were specialty parking had been arranged. All the members had a great time getting together and are now planning the next few events.

The first will be Cars and Cockpits will be happening April 1st at Lyon Air Museum by John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, CA and has 26 BMW 8 Series pre-registered. The following month SoCal 8 will host a Temecula Wine Tasting Tour May 19-20. For more information on both events checkout the links below.

I am an 8 Series nut. In 2009 I restored a '92 850i to peak condition and subsequently sold it - which left me depressed. So I embarked on catching my White Whale: this '95 850CSi Chassis #CD00166. I’m opinionated and swear constantly, but I have friends in spite of myself. I am funnier than my wife realizes. Please tell her. Cheers!
