Montecito Cars & Coffee 03-10-13

The morning began with the synthesized rooster waking me up; the time was 7:45. After puting on a warm jacket and grabbing my camera gear, I hopped into my car and made my way to Montecito. On the way, my mind wandered, wondering what cars would be there.

The morning started for me around 8am. Me bringing my NSX, I felt a little out of place with all these European exotics surrounding me.

Now, as far as 80's sports cars go, this was the top of its class. The e30 M3 is one of my all time favorite sports coupes.

The Aston Martin DB7 is, I think, one of the best looking cars on the road. The next gen. Jag XKE, if you will.

As the morning came to a close and the coffee got cold, the cars slowly made their way home to a cozy garage where they would cool down; waiting to be driven again.
