CAR SHOW SAFARI hits County Line Cars and Coffee!!

So fun. BIG THANKS to Bryan Hanes and his team for an amazing show. WE’LL BE BACK! Now… WATCH!

BONUS SKETCHES! Cocaine Hummer, 911RS and CYBERTRUCKS!

Thank God the rain didn’t come for this morning’s COUNTY LINE CARS & COFFEE. But before we get to that, check out the HUMMER I did for the film “SON OF THE MASK.” This was early on in the concept phase when budget wasn’t an issue. The Director wanted Jamie Kennedy to drive this HUMMER at first… and it had to be hopped up on COKE. (Not the drink, folks.)

But as time went on, the MASK MUSCLE CAR appeared and won the studio over.

SECOND UP is a 1973 Porsche 911RS I did for SPIKE FERESTEN. There’s a color version of this too here, but what color would YOU have made it? You can get this one on a CANVAS PRINT now, so snag ‘er up!

LASTLY, Best in Show shots from today’s County Line Cars & Coffee… with TWO CYBERBEASTS pulling in. Love it or hate it, it’s BIG and would work well for a Movie Car. It’s n the Garage here, but would look good in an actual COLOR too. But what color??

DID YOU KNOW?? There is not even a single curve in the Cybertruck’s design. This one… you REALLY CAN cook an egg on!

1972 PLYMOUTH CUDA epitomized Muscle Cars… and STILL DOES

Say what you will, but ALL Muscle Cars are cool. Ford, Chevy, Mopar… all unique and amazing to peruse. But there was something about this 1972 PLYMOTUH BARRACUDA at last weekend’s County Line Cars & Coffee that was just right. So… it’s get Fireball’s BEST OF SHOW and thus… you guys get a cool LOOK-SEE, so WATCH & ENJOY!!

Fireball will be at MOONEYES this Saturday at Irwindale Speedway as well as Supercar Sunday this weekend. Look for him if you’ve got something UNIQUE!!

CAR SHOW SAFARI spots unique Classic Muscle and goes for it!

A great time with ROD ARAGON and his Classic 1968 Ford Torino GT. Today’s episode shot at COUNTY LINE CARS & COFFEE. But not only is the car cool… the impressions are hysterical!

Be sure to check out the latest FIREBALL MUGS!

Fireball reveals why CAR SHOWS are so awesome…

CAR SHOWS are more than just gatherings for automotive enthusiasts; they are vibrant hubs of passion, creativity, and community. Especially Cars & Coffee Events. Among the plethora of such events, County Line Cars and Coffee in Westlake stands out as a prime example, drawing enthusiasts from all walks of life. But what is it about these gatherings that captivate people’s hearts and minds? Tommy Scalera of CAR SHOW SAFARI and I went this morning to find out…

Firstly, car shows offer a sensory feast. The gleaming curves of classic cars, the throaty rumble of engines, and the intoxicating smell of donuts and coffee to create an experience that appeals to all the senses. County Line Cars and Coffee epitomizes this, with its picturesque setting providing the perfect backdrop for enthusiasts to showcase their prized vehicles.

Yet, beyond the aesthetics lies a deeper connection – the stories behind the cars. Each vehicle has a history, a tale of restoration, modification, or customization that reflects the owner’s personality and passion. At car shows, enthusiasts eagerly share these stories, forging bonds with fellow aficionados and sparking inspiration in others. County Line Cars and Coffee serves as a platform for these narratives to unfold, fostering a sense of camaraderie among attendees.

The car shows offer a window into the past, present, and future of automotive culture. Vintage CLASSICS stand alongside cutting-edge SUPERCARS, showcasing the evolution of design and engineering. This juxtaposition of old and new sparks conversations about innovation and tradition, inspiring attendees to push the boundaries of automotive creativity. County Line Cars and Coffee embraces this diversity, welcoming vehicles of all makes and models, from vintage Mustangs to sleek Teslas. Imagine if we looked at each other’s differences in that way instead of being afraid of what’s different?

Car Shows provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, allowing attendees to immerse themselves in their passion for automobiles. In a world filled with distractions and haters, these events offer a rare opportunity to live in the moment, to appreciate the beauty of craftsmanship and the thrill of speed. County Line Cars and Coffee serves as a sanctuary for enthusiasts to indulge their love for cars and forge lasting memories with like-minded individuals.

In essence, people love car shows because they are more than just showcases of automotive excellence; they are celebrations of passion, creativity, and community. Through events like County Line Cars and Coffee, enthusiasts are inspired to embrace their love for cars and create something new, keeping the spirit of automotive culture alive for generations to come.
