Here’s the deal: One of the bow tie brigade’s best, most fun models has been cashiered, discontinued, dropped … I didn’t even ask why. Do dealers need more room for new pickup truck models, are they too busy tacking obscene amounts of vigorish on to the Corvette window sticker?

So, Camaros are going away … except at AutoBooks where they’ll be broadly celebrated at one of the West Coast’s all-time classic automobile-nut destinations "AutoBooks-Areobooks" in beautiful downtown (you know where).. Los Angeles! Well, really it's Burbank... Cars, coffee, books, buddies, new friends, and the occasional funny man…

Seriously folks, what’s not to like here?

A car show on the street, and a store that’s unlike any other on the planet, with a bonus bustling Porto’s Bakery* a just few blocks West.

Oh yeah, buy the book when you’re there, or order an especially autographed copy from wherever you’re reading this.

*if you have to ask, you need a road trip…
