Very nice pics. Was nice to see owners and the cars. Somehow I would like to see some action shots, like with a photographer at a certain spot catching each car as it drives by. Might take a very good camera but the shot is worth it.
Glad you guys had a good time, and way to build enthusiasm for your next fun run.

Nice motion shots here for an MG as posted by Alvin:

I'll post my shots as soon as I get to them. It might be a little while.

Sorry, I find modern engine swaps revolting. Keep your G, R, or U series in your Roadster!

My report from Sunday's Fun Run, full picture gallery on the blog:

https://www.zcarblog.com/2019/11/17/fea ... 17-19.html

Yes, we will organize more runs!

On Sunday I joined 6 other roadsters for a drive in the North Bay. I left San Jose ~7:45am and it was very foggy. On the freeway it was actually quite wet like rain, not a good sign as I thought the weather would be worse heading North.
Image
Image

As I approached San Francisco the fog disappeared, revealing the city Skyline and iconic Golden Gate Bridge. I was excited to see everyone and do some driving.

Meeting point: Fort Baker 9am

I arrived to see 6 roadsters already lined up against the GG Bridge and clear sky. It was really fortunate that weather was amazing....usually this time of year the GG bridge is shrouded in fog!

We chatted for a bit and I consulted with Jerry about staging the cars for quick photoshoot. He's a talented photographer and you can see his positioning and composition created some spectacular shots.

The cars:

Dan's 1970 1600. Dan owns three roadsters and this one is completely stock:

Mike's 1967 2000, #0072:

Andy's 1969 1600, looking great on stock wheels and whitewall tires:

Image
Pat's 1969 1600. Pat has swapped in a 2L/5-speed drivetrain from the 2000 model. Note the factory roll-bar:

Image
Image
Image
You can see Pat's rear reflector mod...these light up now!
Image

Jerry's 1969 2000. This SRL caught my attention as soon as Jerry started the fire-breathing Solex-carb'd U20. Make sure you watch the video below to hear it rev. Note the pretty Longchamp XR-4 wheels:

Image
Image
Image

Scott's 1967 1600. I met Scott back in Aprril at the 2019 Solvang Datsun Roadster Show and admired this full frame-off restoration. Stunning paint and a nice interior with carbon fiber touches. Power is from a modified 1600 engine now displacing 2L...powerful! Note the full stainless exhaust (and hear it in the video below!)

We got each owner next to their roadster and a nice group photo. Big thanks to Jerry for the camera work.

Image

Our leader Dano was anxious to get moving to avoid tourist traffic so we rolled out. We were also joined by fellow roadster owners Eric (in his NA Miata) and Will (in his E30 M3). The next 4 hours was a mix of ever-changing scenery that was new to me. From Downtown Sausalito to twisty HWY1, ribbons of road winding through forest and

Stop #1: Limatour Beach

Quick stop close to the coastline and back through the forest...
Image
Image
Image

Stop #2: Lunch at Tony's Seafood Restaurant in Marshall:

Image
I had a tasty Fried Oyster P0' Boy
Image
Image

After lunch, some parted ways while Dano, Pat, Will and myself headed to Nicasio Reservoir back to 101. Pat and I rode together for a stretch of freeway heading home.

I had a blast driving with everyone. Thanks to all that came out and thanks to Dano for leading!
Here is a video of the sights and sounds, enjoy!
In this video:

-When I heard Jerry fire up his Solex-equipped 2000 I knew I had to capture the sound, so you will hear him revving

-staging of cars for the individual shots in front of the GG (Mike's 67 SRL and Andy's 69 SPL

-Scott demonstrating the lovely Jim Tyler exhaust on his stroked SPL

-leaving Sausalito and winding up HWY 1 through Stinson, Pt. REyes and Limatour
