Aliso Viejo Cars and Coffee May 21 2016
And an unexpected event!
What an eventful day! We started out to enjoy it bright and early at Cars and Coffee in Aliso Viejo. The skies were overcast threatening rain so we were surprised at the number of people who turned out this weekend! Thanks to cloudy skies and colorful autos our photos were particularly popping! Lots of exotics this time around and one of our favorites was the corvette with the mini corvette sitting on top of the engine.
What can we say, we’re Italian, regular coffee isn’t strong enough!
As usual, we stopped to chat with our friends and clients while admiring their automobiles Then we headed back to the shop for own version of C and C, we’re calling it Espresso and Cars. What can we say, we’re Italian, regular coffee isn’t strong enough!
At the shop, we helped a client repair a few annoying chips in the paint of his 308 Ferrari. We were lucky to be pleasantly surprised by one of our clients and friend who dropped in to invite us to the Nobles Family Museum in Fountain Valley for a tour, generously put together by our local chapter of the Ferrari Owners Club of Southern California.
We quietly followed him around at least 5 rolls of exotic automobiles, and that was only the inside…,
We raced off to the museum (raced, get it?) where we were treated to a light buffet, then a brief biography by the owner of this wonderland, Yes, Professor Anthony Nobles gave us the tour himself, explaining each car of the collection while we stood around gawking and drooling at them. He described his love for all his exotics and how he drives them in a rotation. He is a definitely a Ferrari enthusiast, with about a third of his automobiles being Ferraris. He even owns the F2001 driven by Michael Schumacher in 2002. We quietly followed him around at least 5 rolls of exotic automobiles, and that was only the inside, outside the entire parking lot was ringed with exquisite automobiles too!
We were very lucky to get a chance to attend!
The museum is not often open to the public. But the Professor sponsors and hosts all kinds of charity events at his museum. We were very lucky to get a chance to attend!
Unfortunately, our photos don’t begin to do it justice to the place although we’ve included what we took. At the bottom is a link to some truly amazing photography that captures the feel of Professor Noble’s dream garage.
A big thank you to Mark Snow, Professor Noble and the Ferrari Owners Club of Southern California for making this one delightful day!
