Friend contacted me with the news that the original Cars & Coffee, created in the parking lot of Mazda and Ford (now Taco Bell too) in Irvine after a weekly car gathering was kicked out of the tony Crystal Cove, is nearing the end.

A quick Google search found several car enthusiast forums with the news/rumor too. Seems the Irvine Company is unhappy with the event, probably thanks to apartment units and a big new hotel located a little too close to the sometimes-loud event.

I hope it's not true.
