Cars & Coffee goes to the Orange County Fairgrounds

August 22, 2015

Costa Mesa, 22 August 2015 – Cars and Coffee and the Los Angeles region were made for one another… after looking for a new home, this weekend’s meeting was the first at the Orange County fairgrounds, just behind the swap meet. There was a huge jumble of vehicles – here’s a few that caught my eye! All photos: Anne Proffit

Loved this Jag XK, but never did find out if it was a 120, 140 or 150 - I think the split window means 120...
