Cars and coffee meet up on Sunday morning with the Edmonton Z car club. Rob’s blue 69 2000, Solex. Johns cream 69 KA24, my Red 68,2000 Solex.
Few early Z ‘s , twin turbo 300zx, few 370z’s.

So rare to have 3 early roadsters in one spot in these parts Again … possibly the most northern datsun roadsters SRL311’s on earth. Hahaha.

Roadster Drive Today. Tuesday. 6-7-22. Prowler. 310 miles.
A nice pre summer day. Mid 70's. Sunny with some late clouds.
Drove the less traveled route to Vantage on the Columbia River.
I5 to Easton, then side roads the rest of the way.
Pictures from around Snoqualmie Pass and the Columbia River.

With scenery like that how can you NOT take a long drive. Sure beats flat Florida that's for sure! Jeff

Anne and I made our first trip to Shasta this past weekend. Met up with Alexi and Amy in Walla Walla, WA. Broke up the drive with overnights at a nice AirBnb in Bend, OR. Cascade Lakes Hwy on the way down, Crater Lake on the way back. Fantastic adventure!

Glad you had a great Time! So many wonderful memories of Shasta runs that included Crater Lake and all the sights. Not sure what your approach was to the Lake, but I do recall an awesome drive along a river to it where myself and Carl Yeager (Canadian and site vender) with his (future) wife got the road to ourselves at warp speeds. All three of us were jumping up and down after we stopped because it was soooo of fun! This is exactly what a Roadster is all About! Congrats on a great trip. Car looks great and HAPPY!

Drove my 70 1600 converted to a 2000/5 speed to work and back, store and back this month as here in Bozeman, MT it has rained every other day for who knows how long.....nice to get out with the top down in the "heat" and enjoy the ride. Uno, I'm with Will, the stock Roadsters are just a blast to drive and enjoy the seat-of-your-pants feeling of cars made long ago when life was simpler and the world was a much friendlier place....just my opinion, but I will always cherish my Roadster and my 510's.
1968 510 Wagon
1970 Roadster 1600/U20/5 sp. swap
1972 510 4 dr. vg30e/5 sp. ricky racer
1971 510 shell behind the shop, r.i.p.

I drive a Roadster or 510 almost every day!
