Mixing cars and coffee? That’s a way to wake up Sunday morning, thanks to the San Diego Automotive Museum.

The Balboa Park venue hosts its first Cars & Coffee community event of 2022 beginning outdoors at 7:30 a.m.

Cars of all makes and models from owners in the community will be on display, while guests enjoy free coffee and donuts. The public is invited to bring vehicles to show in the parking lot as well.

Those who attend also can view exhibits on display in the museum, for discounted admission of $10 for those who arrive before 10 a.m.

Cars guests can peruse include a custom-designed 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible, three Shelby Cobras, including one still registered to Carroll Shelby, and a Kurtis 500 that has won multiple awards, including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Future Cars & Coffees will be held on the third Sunday of each month, with the next set for Feb. 20.
