Saturday Sips at MoonGoat Coffee

SEPTEMBER 14, 2021

With summer coming to a close, the freedom of early Saturday morning drives are here to stay. For those dedicated, that is. This month’s small business drive and meet brought an eclectic group of enthusiasts together in Garden Grove visiting one of my personal favorites: MoonGoat Coffee. A community involved, hip and young crowd running the craft, this cultured hub caters to the tasteful connoisseurs.

What I enjoy most is connecting with the people who have cars I am not as versed in in order to optimize more knowledge and gratitude toward all makes and models, because everything has something worth celebrating.

The lot was full of a prominently German mix. Specifically the crew of classic E30 BMWs. There was a coyote gold E30 (and one of two cars dressed in this paint in the country), where the sun hits it just right and these photos don’t do it justice. A beautiful spec of a coupe with BBS wheels. One of ten cars within the owner's fleet, and one to be acknowledged.

I connected with Peter who drives a red E30 convertible, and you can truly feel his admiration for it alongside his motivation to work in the industry of automotive. Since three’s a party, my final favorite was an E30 with a "sorry, not for sale" sticker rolling on BBS RS001 wheels. Matt purchased this beauty stock last year and has done a complete engine ove
