Looked like it might rain and it actually did but well before showtime. The lot started out damp but dried out pretty nicely and the cars started showing up.

What an incredible day! It was like summer had returned. Huge crowd and terrific diversity of cars. Cappuccino, anybody? Regular old Gallardo not fast enough for you? How about a Gallardo TT? M-B Gullwing or two perhaps? F40 modded or stock? F50 instead? What color Ferrari would you like? Lambos more your thing? Countach, Diablo, or Murci ? Rather stick with something domestic? What color Ford GT are you looking for? Prefer some classic muscle? Got you covered there too. Like I said, an incredible day.

Rain kept the lot pretty empty but there were some cool surprises. A radical, twin motorcycle-engined, home-built ALMS racer look-alike to name but one.

And I need to pass along a note from security: From today on,, there will be NO LINEUP in the morning. Owners that want to display their cars in the main lot can drive right in when they arrive in the morning. To discourage people from showing up at 5, Starbuck's and Pacific Whey will push back their opening time to 7.

It's important to know that the local residents have been complaining a lot about the noise and this is considered a final attempt to keep things quiet. Drive in quietly. Shut off your engine and stereo. And keep your voices down until 7.

The lots will still be coned off to discourage "non-show" cars from entering the show area, and will be closed off when the lot is full, when pedestrian traffic makes it unsafe to enter the lot, or at 7:15, whichever comes first.

The laws against displaying "for sale" signs and brochures will be even more strictly enforced as will parking by "show cars" in that first row by Starbuck's. If your car will draw a crowd, don't park there. At least not for more than 30 minutes.

Gloomy sky, even misted a bit and then it got really windy. Probably Mother nature reminding us that the Cizeta alone can put a pretty good hole in the ozone layer. The GT1 is a rebody, but a nice looking one. Surprised to see a Marcos, and a Toyota 2000GT in the same spot. Lots of sweet Veedubs today too. And tons of bikes too. And just like with the M5s, we waited to see our first RS4 and all of a sudden there are tons of them everywhere you look. Amazing place.

After a front-page story in yesterday's Orange County Register, we saw a huge crowd today. First time I've ever seen the entire lot full. Not the main show lot, but the entire plaza lot including the new auxiliary lots in the front corners. Amazing.

Pretty amazing show turnout again today. The Saleen gang showed up with everything but the highly anticipated Parnelli Jones special but had to park outside the main lot because they got there only 20 mintues til 7. Everybody knows you have to be there by 6:30 nowadays. :)

Carrera GT, Murci Roadsters, the Cizeta, RS4, 997 Turbo, CS, F430 coupe and Spider, spectacular black 360 Spider, Panoz Esperante, lots of beautiful vintage iron too today. Highlight had to be the 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

Pretty good show today. Although the lot was packed with Vipers and Benzes by 6:20, there was quite a good variety today. Rosso Dino Enzo, red and yellow CGTs, Cizeta, Callaway, two regular and one electric Atom, 275 GTS, 330 GTC, CSes, something for everyone.

Weird weather today. Alternating dense fog and clear skies. Didn't effect the turnout any, fortunately. The main lot was full by 6:30 and the side lots were jammed by the 8. Amazing. Too many great cars to list all of them. Just wanted to mention the Panoz Esperante GTLM, GG Quad, Suzuki SX4 concept, Skyline, Carrera GTS 904 mule, Periscope Countach and Miura as highlights for me today. And that 40th Murci WAS owned by a Miami Dolphins afficianado, explaining the orange interior highlights but not the police siren. Very nice though.

Pretty good week again with another new procedure adjustment. The side entrances are now closed completely until 7 so a lot of people were caught making an illegal turn into the center entrance off PCH because the signs told them that was the only way in. Free money for Newport! And another downer was the mod shop that parked their rig across a whole row of premium parking in the side lot and took up half a row in the main lot with two pickup trucks and a couple of bikes. Not a great way to make friends or drum up business, but to each his own.

What a great turnout. 3 F40s (regular, plus and super), 3 Daytonas, 2 S7s, 2 CGTs, a familiar Challenger, a D-Type, a Lusso, a bunch of Lambos, the whole Saleen family including Steve himself. Wow. Summer is in the air.

Felt like the old days. Huge traffic jam on PCH just before 7 then a mad dash for a spot. The main lot wasn't even full so there was even a little more elbow room compared to recent shows. Nice surprise to see Peter Klutt of Speed's Dream Car Garage and Sports Car Revolution making a visit too.

I'm starting to sound like a scratched CD, but a pretty spectacular showing today. 2 F40s, Carrera GT, SLR, F430s, CSes, an ALMS junior racer, 1923 Ford, Olds Intrigue, a whole fleet of Lamborghinis, the Saleen family, and my personal favorites: the vintage Ferraris. Tom's 375 MM in black and red, Larry's Lusso and the California Spyder look-alike LWB bought on a teacher's salary 30-odd years ago. Don't know of any teahcers able to cough up seven figures to put this in their garage nowadays, unfortunately.

Cool show today with a nice diversion by way of a ride in Dom's 308 GT4. Thanks to Dom for reminding Jay and I how thrilling each and every Ferrari is to drive. The sound, the handling, the connection to the road is what sets this breed apart from the transportation appliances clogging our highways.

Also need to pass along another request that we tell everybody we know who might be coming to CC that that first row by Starbuck's is still off-limits to any car that might draw a crowd. That's for people who are popping into 'buck's or Pacific Whey and leaving in 30 minutes or less only. Needs to be kept clear of pedestrians as much as possible. Every spot will be freshly painted with that proviso starting next week and tow trucks will be on call. Nothing new here, just a reminder that those businesses appreciate customers being able to come and go unimpeded.

Also, don't forget that if you are lining up to enter the main lot in the morning you need to shut your engine, shut your stereo, and shut your mouth. We know what a b!tch it is to get up so early on a Saturday and we do it by choice. The local residents would like the same option. Be considerate.

And last but not least (and for some reason this was so bad today it was almost comical), no "for sale" signs or any other kind of advertising visible on your vehicle. Selling on this private property requires a permit and none have been issued at CC. If you insist on turning CC into a swap meet, parking in the side lots would be a better option or at least have the good sense to keep that flyer on your front seat instead of in your windshield or in an otherwise visible spot.

Bonus points for this infraction have to go to the billboard atop that 911 and the unique twist of using a flyer on the Mazdaspeed6 to advertise an available Lexus. Double bonus to the dealer cars parked for 2 hours in front of Starbuck's. Thanks for the visual aids on what NOT to do. Hopefully everybody got the message loud and clear today so no further displays will be necessary.

So I pull up at around 6:15 and the lot is pretty empty as I had guessed it would be because of the wet roads and gloomy skies. I drive over to my usual parking spot and find a big Symbolic trailer sitting there. I take a pic and the driver pops up to say, "Wait until I open it up."
"You don't have a Veyron in there, do you?"
"As a matter of fact, I do."
I think there were some other cars there today, but to be honest I'm not sure. :)

OK, last time I was at CC it rained and a Veyron showed up. No Veyron today, despite the rain, but what could possibly top a new Bug? Can anybody say Zonda? None showed up up, but isn't that a lovely sounding name? Zonda. Say it with me. Zon-da. Just rolls off the tongue, no? Anyway, there were some really cool cars at this week's show, but the highlight was finally getting a chance to drive Jordan's superb Gen V GTI! My fast wants one so bad. Great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new f-chatters too. Felt like a high school reunion.

Back to CC after a weekend in Vegas and it rains. Bummer. But even on a rainy day we get some gems. Did a little ridealong with a couple of friends in a ZR-1 and a Noble after the show. I hear these cars can be a handful in the dry, so this was extra fun. That Noble makes 9 foot tall rooster tails!

Kind of a slow end to 2005, but even a slow day at CC is a good one. Gloomy skies and Holiday burnout conspired to keep some at home, but a beautiful original DB5 Superleggera, Rick's F40, a pair of CGTs, a pair of CSes, some FGTs, 512 TR and 512 M, Novitec 360, and some nice Shelby Mustangs kept it interesting.

Quite a day. Interesting cloud formations signaled that it might be something out of the ordinary. The new lineup produced its own array of striking combinations of old and new, exotic and mundane, fast and wickedly fast, as well as Lamborghini and non-Lamborghini. Lambo Lane alone supplied something like 5,000 hp.

And Lamborghini's own Valentino Balboni stopped by, graciously signing anything that was put in front of him or spending a few minutes answering questions and posing for photos. He even ran into his old friend and former Lamborghini co-worker, Claudio Zampoli of Cizeta fame.

The "other" marques were also well-represented as usual. Although there have been many 57s and 62s at CC before, having a matched set of vintage and new Maybachs show up was just incredible.

Don't forget to leave feedback and suggestions to help me make this site better.

Weather went from gloomy to great this week and attracted a few more cars than last time. My camera was acting up however, so I scaled back a bit on the number of pics I took. Hope you enjoy them, and whether or not you do, I love any kind of feedback you'd like to leave. Feel free to leave a comment here or e-mail me at frank4cars@aol.com. And thanks again to all of you who continue to support the site with purchases and PayPal donations. It's greatly appreciated.

I've added some additional notes about CC security in my journals section. If you've had any experience regarding security or its enforcement procedures, please read this and pass it on to anybody you know who is thinking of attending CC in the future.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave some feedback in either the guestbook or by adding a comment to a particular album or individual photo. Good or bad, I'd love to hear what you think.

You can get info about my camera and how a particular shot was done by clicking on an image to open it in a larger size and then clicking on the exif info button to the right of the larger image that opens. That's also where you'll find the pull-down menu to order any of these shots as a print or poster. Just choose the size you want and the finish and it will be added to your cart.

Make sure you read my Welcome page [http://welcome.frank4cars.fotki.com/] for all of the relevent legal information about using these images.

Don't forget to drop me a line if you want higher-res shots or to arrange a shoot. Thanks to all who have supported this site through your purchases and PayPal donations. Your continued generosity is appreciated. frank4cars@aol.com

A little bonus coverage today to show the first 24 hours for Jason and Stephan on the SoCal portion of their trip West.

Thanks for all the compliments on the pics and thanks for asking where to donate.

I get a cut of sales and you get a top-quality frameable photo print.

Amazing turnout again today. Nice memorial to Bob Cheatley, one of the founders of this meet when he and a few buddies decided to find a less crowded alternative to Donut Drelicts in HB 3 years ago. Lots of Ferraris, including an extremely low mileage, ultra-rare, Rosso Dino CS! Enjoy the pics.

Dense fog and light drizzle resulted in a really light turnout today, and yet again, a couple of surprises. Highlight had to be the 1971 Bizzarrini 128 Sport (13-inch Campagnolos and all), looking like it belongs alongside the Batmobile, with Robin's Racer written on its tags. Also liked the yellow and silver pairs of Z06es and Jeepsters, the dark red Gallardo, black SLR, classic 'Stangs, the multiple clean 308/328s, and of course the full-sized and Mini-Me pair of Yellow Lambos.

Overnight rains, another show later in the day, and the annual USC-UCLA game doth conspire to make this a fairly weak show. But even on a bleak day, some gems turn up.

The sun never managed to poke its head out today, but fortunately that didn't keep the groundhogs away. Saw my first Ariel Atom, which is just impossible-to-believe. Some other highlights were Kev's '57 Buick Century, an F40 and F50, several F430s (yellow, corsa, scuderia, black), a bunch of FGTs, a sweet-looking Alfa Junior Zagato, a stunning Bentley with a fresh extreme makeover courtesy of Mr. Shine, the return of one of the D-Type Jags, a Daytona Comp conversion, and a Porsche Diesel tractor! Some people even got themselves and their cars into the Holiday Spirit. Caught a couple of pics of an F430 in the wild too.
