1991 Acura NSX: No Love at Cars and Coffee

June 27, 2012

Our local Saturday morning Cars and Coffee is one of the largest in the nation with over 500 cars of all types gathering in Irvine, CA from O'dark until about 9 am. It's fun, but it's also nearly 60 miles from my house, which means I need to start driving about 6 am if I'm going to make the party.

Last weekend our long-term NSX and I made the party...sort of. When we arrived it was clear the man at the gate didn't think the Acura made the cut and directed me to park it in what is essentially the reject lot over to the left. We found a spot between a Nissan Altima with rims and blacked out trim and a fairly generic but clean non-SS '66 Chevelle riding on Cragars. 

By the way our 1985 Porsche 911 and 1984 Ferrari 308 never had this problem. Both were welecomed into the main lot many times with open arms, erect thumbs and hearty smiles. 

Needless to say I was disappointed. But it was a fun morning otherwise. More photos after the jump.

This modified NSX made the cut. I found it parked next to a stone stock and new Lotus powered by a Camry motor. Lame.

This black NSX was also parked in the reject lot. What gives?
