On August 12th Duke Hingley, my son, Brian, and I took three Bugeye’s down to the San Clemente Cars and Coffee on our way down to a Bugeye Rally and BBQ at John Felt’s house in Vista. We arrived at the Outlet Center at 6:55 AM and it was already 90% full and by 7:30 all available spaces were taken and they had to start parking cars in an adjacent parking area.
We were joined by Phil Caliva in one of his Alfa’s and Tom Spangler in his BJ9, as his Bugeye is still out of commission.
One of the highlights of the show were two brand new Jaguar Project 8 coupes that were on their way to Monterey for their grand unveiling. Unfortunately, they did not have a convertible for our viewing but the cars seemed to be a big hit.
