8 years of working for IBM have chiselled Balázs’s English skills to a level inappropriately high for this magazine, but did much to blunt his interest towards office work and computers. Earlier a reader and seldom contributor, also a deeply affected car maniac, he left IBM and joined us for a longer term as a journalist, but he’s back again to making money – at another IT company. Luckily he kept on writing for us and hasn’t dropped his love for photography either.

The concept is simple yet hard to surpass. Every Saturday morning, Californian car enthusiasts drive to Irvine, park their cars in the parking lot, grab a coffee and chat about each other’s rides.

The parking lot of Ford’s North America Strategic Division in Irvine, California is rather busy during the week. Customers come and go and the place is packed with company cars. After Friday's close of business the place is deserted, but not for long since the real business is starting the next day. It’s Cars and Coffee time. The concept is simple yet hard to surpass. Every Saturday morning, Californian car enthusiasts drive to Irvine, park their cars in the parking lot, grab a coffee and chat about each other’s rides. Be it rare, expensive, modified, vintage, US or import, you name it, they have a place there. We had the opportunity of checking out the place, and it was definitely worth waking up that early on a Saturday. It’s pointless to waste any more words, it would just spoil the fun. If you are on your coffee-break or sitting on a boring conference call, just open the gallery and feast your eyes on some rare treats. It’s worth it!

Buying an SUV for a Golf's price

Depreciation hits full size SUV’s like a freight train: it’s fast, heavy and unstoppable. After five to seven years of service they almost seem affordable, like this Touareg or the XC90, for instance.
