The Los Angeles area covers a huge swath of square mileage. To drive from top to bottom can take 90 minutes without traffic (when talking about driving around LA, you have to throw in this stipulation). Everyone knows of Cars and Coffee, but it can be difficult to attend as Joe will attest to. Issue #1: it’s at the very bottom of the LA area. Issue #2: you have to get there at the butt crack of dawn. For those who lived in the northern parts of LA and/or also didn’t particularly care for getting to a parking lot at 6am, SuperCar Sunday was born.
SuperCar Sunday is located on the far north side of the LA area in Woodland Hills. Don’t be fooled into thinking SuperCar Sunday is a carbon copy of Cars and Coffee. SuperCar Sunday has developed its own unique feel along with attracting a slightly different type of crowd. Of importance to some is the time of the gathering; SuperCar Sunday runs from 7am to 10am with the peak timeframe being around 9am-10am. If you want to catch all the action at Cars and Coffee in Irvine, you better be there from 7am-8am. Once a month, SuperCar Sunday hosts a Marque day where vehicles of a specific type are prominent. On this particular Sunday, it was Ferrari day. I didn’t bother counting, but there were roughly 75 Ferraris in attendance. As for the slightly different type of crowd, I believe the location has a lot to do with it, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
|I parked next to this Miata. Those fender flares aren’t for show, it’s so the fat sticker rubber will fit. Those wide rubber bands of tires aren’t for show; they are to contain the power of the big V8 residing under the hood.
|Roll bar? Check. Bolstered driving seats? Check. Harnesses? Check. This ain’t your grandma’s Miata. Well, unless you have a super badass grandma.
|Even the old school Camaro SS muscle car has wider rubber and well bolstered seats.
