While visiting CA, I borrowed the silver car (now sans sidepipes) from roadsterdude on Sunday and went for a spirited drive up Mt Umunhum with the usual suspects.

^^^Great blast up to Mt. Umunhum with the oppositelock and bikermike on Sunday. I was impressed with the Silver car's performance after sitting for so long!

No Pix as yet - phone dead.

Just completed 'Bottom Buster Motor Tour - 3 days - @1K miles - Pasadena to Paso Robles, r/t to Paso Robles and then home.

Some wonderful roads,

Carmel Valley Road and Nacimiento/Fergusson to name a couple.

Weather was perfect for driving - and my makeshift 'bimini' top did the job of keeping the sun's rays from beating down on me. All the comforts of a convertible top without that claustrophobic feeling.

This is a 'free' event - no badges,swag etc. - just roads, cars and company.

One of the many spinoffs from the No Frills Iron Bottom Buster Motor Tour.

Not too many cars unfortunately and a few too many moderns, from memory, 3 Porsche 911 types, 2 Z's, Sunbeam Alpine, Alfa, '15 Charger, Eric's Beemer, the Kenya Tribute Comet (love that car), Fiat 124 with unusual front end treatment, and a DNS/DNF Bristol 404(?) with some of the most extreme patina I've seen. Poor fellow drove from San Jose, transmission went out in Paso, and so AAA did its job of towing him home.

The participants were kind and gracious and it felt good to get back on the road with my new, as yet unnamed, 1970 1600. Car ran well, pulled respectably up grades and was quite happy to 'sing' at 80+, haven't checked MPG yet, but given the speeds and typically running in 3rd on the twisties, don't think it's going to be THAT great!

Definitely well worth carving out some time next year to attend - likely to be FOUR days so we can go further inland - Utah maybe??

Ed didn't make it this year due to a mixup in 'shotgun' allocation.

Went cruising this afternoon and ended up in Grapevine for some frito-pie and parked in front of this foreign car.

Not a weekend day, but still counts. Left at dawn from Paso and drove to Big Sur and met some friends for breakfast. Afterward we headed north and stopped at Bixby Bridge PCH to pick up another friend. 3 fast Porsches with 3 great drivers LOVE this Roadsters chops for running strong and stable on the confined twisties all the way out Carmel Valley to Greenfield.
