As of now, I am planning to drive to Hollister on Thursday evening, and run down Friday with you all. Showers will not hurt a roadster, and if you can maintain 40mph you will stay dry..

I passed two 1600s just north of Camp Roberts this afternoon, a silver one and and a red one. I waved to both but only the driver in the silver one noticed me. I was in the black BMW E30 M3. A few of those rain squalls were out of control. I am really glad I did not bring my car down as it would have been really wet, and downright terrifying.

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

I did not see any roadsters on the way home today up 101 mostly. but I did hear several people in Lompoc, Santa Maria, and Salinas say Nice Datsun or look a Datsun! those are the only places I stopped. And a few people waived on 101 and a couple Miatas on route 1 gave me the thumbs up as they passed while we all waited on some backed up traffic.

Seems everyone likes the Datsun roadsters!


a pic from Solvang just before we left the street. mine is the third roadster, second white one on the middle. they were both 1970 white , with red interior 2000s, almost twins.
