Ruby's Car Show-Redondo BeachThis is a pretty good gathering of cool local cars of all kinds at Ruby's in Redondo Beach.  It runs every Friday during the warmer months falling between Daylight Savings.  Some of the regulars actually show up as early as lunch to get the best parking.  I'm usually there around 3:30pm staying til 6:30pm.  It's a great social gathering of car guys and beach folks.  You also get a lot of interesting European tourists come to check out the car show.  I'm always getting into great conversations (and some arguments) with folks there.  Always enjoyable.

peninsulacandc tnThis one happens the first Saturday of every month year round and I always try to go.  It starts at 7:00am and it finishes at 9:00am.  This show can be pretty amazing since the wealthy folks on the hill will bring incredible cars.  You get everything from good old fashioned hot rods to blue chip collector cars like a Bentley Blower or Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing.  Like most early cars and coffee gatherings attendance is almost entirely gear heads so everyone respects the cars in attendance and you don't have to worry about your car as much.  Oh and due to crowding we're kinda not supposed to promote the gathering so don't tell anyone. 😉

La Cañada - Early RoddersHappening every Saturday 6:30am to 8:30am this is a good gathering of a wide variety of very nice cars.  In addition it sits at the base of Angeles Crest Highway which is an excellent drive to take after the gathering.  Word of warning though.  The CHP does NOT play around up there so keep your shenanigans to a dull roar.  Also be mindful of motorcycles.  Squids will come around blind curves into the oncoming lane.  Blood washes off easy enough but those damn bikes can dent the crap out of your car.  😱

milliondollarbc tnThe Million Dollar Breakfast Club happens every Sunday year round from 7:00am 9:00am.  It tends to be a smaller gathering but always has interesting cars and people.  Most car gatherings are pretty friendly but this one particularly so and I always find myself getting into great conversations with folks and starying way longer than I had intended.

wheelsnwaves tnThis is a great show in Malibu.  It used to be in front of Malibu Kitchen but has moved to the Peet's Coffee lot across the street.  I like this location a bit better as it offers a bit more shelter from through traffic giving it a more exclusive feeling.  Fireball Tim and the guys with him are very active making sure things are organized and folks enjoy themselves.  The show happens the third Sunday of every Month year round from 7:00am to 9:00am.  Peet's Coffee of course supplies the morning go-juice with nice patio seating where you can relax and watching the goings on.  A DJ plays good music and interacts with attendees keeping things lively.  Celebrities are known to attend so that adds some interest as well.  Fireball Tim does a rad show and I'm gonna try to make every one.  BTW check out Fireball Tim's vlog.

wheelsnwaves tnSponsored by Ferrari South Bay and hosted by Caffè Tre Venezie in their parking lot this smaller gathering features primarily Ferraris of course but other exotics attend and all makes and models are welcome.  It happens on the third Saturday of every month from 7:30am - 9:00am and there's free coffee and delicious pastries.  Not sure why but they like you to register on their webpage here.  Guess they want to make sure they have enough coffee.  I'm starting to enjoy these smaller gatherings as they seem a little friendlier than the big ones.  Couple that with the interesting people in attendance and this is a fun time.  I'm looking forward to the next one.
