Best way for me to sample LA car culture while I知 here for the week?

So, I am in La for the next week - specifically Calabasas.

I already know about Supercar Sunday. Any other car culture events I might be able to soak in over the next week?

Car culture? Just a lot of d-bags on Rodeo Drive or near the Americana in Glendale. Just visit the PEC LA and enjoy the rest of your time in LA.

Maybe post up on California section for some stuff. I know there might be some stuff in OC in Fullerton area or something, but I haven't really kept up with all that.

If you are able to drive down to Orange County, they have Cars and Coffee in San Clemente. Everythingfrom modern exotics, classics, muscle cars... You name it. Much better than an autoshow. Owners are there to talk to you and show off thier toys.

Garage List
1) Drive the ACH from Wrightwood to Newcombs Ranch for breakfast. Take it down Big Tujunga to La Canada.

2) Drive The Snake. Just watch out for cops at the hairpin. There are also some closures you might have to check online for. Lots of roads up in Malibu Canyon however.

3) Visit the Porsche Experience Center and rent a Porsche to take on their track for a few hours.

4) BMW Performance Center West is a few hours drive away. Check the schedule, maybe they have something going on. Thermal Club is right next door. Membership is $80k or something, but if you take certain classes at BMW you can get on that track.

5) South OC Cars & Coffee meets weekly.

6) The Peterson has something going on this Sunday.

7) The Malibu Cars & Coffee is the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month iirc. Lots of nice cars to see.

8) Pretend you are playing GTA V and just cruise Beverly Hills and down Sunset. Frankly it's not that fun, but maybe if you aren't from here it is.

9) Stay away from the night time hooning crowds unless you like to watch stupid shit and want to lose faith in humanity.
