Gear Jammers from the San Ramon Valley and beyond are dealing with news of cessation of the popular “Coffee and Cars” events organized by the Blackhawk Automotive Museum and an area mainstay for automotive enthusiasts over the years.
Organizers cited several reasons for their decision to halt the event. Jon Snyder made the announcement through the museum website:
We have made the difficult decision to end Cars & Coffee as of now. We love the spirit of the event and the opportunity it has provided for the Museum and its volunteers to interact with the local automotive community, but the event has grown beyond our ability to actively monitor with our volunteers and staff. The hazards caused by congestion within the Plaza, noise complaints from the surrounding residential area, and concerns of local law enforcement cannot be ignored.I
I want to thank everyone that has been a part of Cars & Coffee over the years. We have several new ideas in the pipeline at Blackhawk Museum and hope that you will all join us in our future endeavors.
