35 Under 35
Young Industry Talent Eyeing the Future
From a generational perspective, the early days of the automotive specialty-equipment industry were exciting times. Pioneering names became the legendary “garage innovators” of speed and performance products who ultimately changed not only how racers competed on the track but also the ways average consumers everywhere drove on the street. Their inventions and out-of-the-box thinking reshaped ideas of performance, convenience and appearance for the automotive and powersports categories, often raising the bar and setting vehicle trends for the OEMs themselves. In the process, they firmly established the foundations for what is now a mainstream industry worth an estimated $41 billion.

Orange Coast Infiniti in Westminster launched their first Cars & Coffee automotive gathering on Sunday morning during the Labor Day Weekend Holiday. Car enthusiasts from the local surrounding areas showcased their rides at the dealership lot enjoying complimentary donuts and coffee. The lovely JDM Sport Vixens made a special appearance that day greeting attendees, serving coffee, and taking pictures. From GT-R's, Fairlady Z's, G35's, Hondas, to even Mazarati and McLaren builds came out to support the Cars & Coffee launch. Car enthusiasts made their way to the dealership as Orange Coast Infiniti unveiled their custom 2018 Infiniti Q50 Orange Sport edition. The sleek design of the new Q50 showcases its curvaceous and aggressive exterior body lines as well as the comfortable interior cabin and seating that would let you experience the 400hp/350lb-ft torque from the 3.0 L V6 power plant. Labor Day Weekend also brought out several test drives from patrons that wanted to preview OC Infiniti's newest models in their inventory. The Cars & Coffee event was a success! We had so much fun with the JDM Sport Vixens and wanted to thank OC Infiniti for having us at your first ever Cars & Coffee! We look forward to the next one! Special Thanks to all of the attendees and car enthusiasts that brought their builds to showcase!
