OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Hosted by the The Finest Grind Coffee Shop in Ocean Springs, Cars and Coffee gives people the chance to view dozens of souped-up cars.

Many say the event is like a scene right out of the 'Fast and Furious.'

"It's a great event. You have a lot of different make and models out here, a lot of different people, so it's a good thing," said volunteer, Jonathan Diaz.

Though hard to miss, cars aren't the main attraction. Profits raised at The Finest Grind Coffee shop will go to those suffering from breast cancer. 

"I think it's a really good impact because you're getting two things out of it. You get to come out here and enjoy really exquisite cars and it's going towards something that's really good," said Diaz.

Jonathan Glaskox was there with his unique Corvette, but he was also there to support his wife; who is a breast cancer survivor.

"Well, it means a lot to us because she's still here with us today....She's been clean now for five years," said Glaskox.

The Next "Cars and Coffee" event will be held on Dec. 4.
