    Default Cars and coffee

    The survivorscarclub is hosting cars and coffee once a month here locally in Pleasant Hill. 0730-0900. I plan to drive the Granada there for most of them, but not this Saturday because the weather is poopy. This is right on Hwy 58 in the parking lot of the Dari Mart.
    No fee. Car lovers invited. I just happen to spot the flyer on the coffee kiosk window. Poor pic of flyer attached.

    My place is only 10 minutes SE from there

    If I wasn't 2.5 hours away on a good weather day, I might try to make it. Leaving at 5am isn't much fun anymore.

    There is a car show in Redmond on the 23rd though at Wild Ride Brewery downtown. I may have the '86 Fox there. I need to get insurance on it, then register for the show a few days beforehand. That's probably a 3-hour drive for you, but FYI.

    If they allow ugly cars, I might take a look. Wait, not ugly. Unrestored daily driver.

    If you did drive down it'd be nice to meet up.

    It was fun this morning! Probably 15 or 20 cars. Not surprising mine was the only four-eye. None of them have even seen a Grenada recently. It drew a lot of attention and questions.

    Off and on smoky skies. People still going though.
    The final one of the season is next week in P-Hill (the 15th).
