South Coast Plaza

Man, South Coast Plaza on Labor Day was basically an M3 meet. Saw at least 4 AW sedans modified, and maybe 10 e46 M3s...gotta love the OC

The OC definitely has the best quality roads in California, but it's by no means the best place for driving in the country. There are some amazing twisty roads throughout New England and Appalachia that beat out anything we have to offer.

Nope. When referring to Orange County's acronym, you add a "the". It's a lot like how we add a "the" to all of our freeways. "The 405", "The 10", "The 91", etc.

"The" before the 101 or whatever freeway is fine but "the" OC is just plain wrong. Most will just say OC.
