:drive
I understand that it is great and I am going to try it this Sunday too. I look forward to seeing you if you come.
I gather that there is NOT going to be a Labor Day Run this year. Oh well, I guess the good thing has run its course.
:pimp:

Wow ~ such a rush of folks clamoring to go ! :D .

It looks like I'll be driving my old white Mercedes 4 door or maybe astride a 1975 BMW R60/6 Motocycle .

I'm tall, grey haired, glasses, using a cane and always with a toothpick .

Well that was fun .

Lots if interesting high end cars there, mostly very pleasant people, terrific weather and a pier with people fishing and having fun, a good breakfast at the cafe next to the meet .

Tom was there too .

Yes it was great and we went next door for breakfast after. The parking was free instead of $10 if go to cafe and get a pass. :pimp:
It is held every month on the first Sunday of the month. Much better than Super Car Sunday at Pierce.

They charged us $10 each , this after they'd validated the parking ticket .

? Did you go to the parking machine or just to the exit gate ? .

Ah, HA ! I didn't want to get stuck and cause backed up traffic .

The drive home via Kanan Dume Road was nice, all the fire damage makes me sad .

I used Malibu Canyon and was caught behind other people so I could only drive at their rate. Not fast.
