Saturday drive through the foothills. DWA Morning Motors cancelled because of rain so I got out while it was dry.

Met a few friends in Buellton, CA since the Solvang meet was cancelled. A couple of LS powered 240-Zs, a sweeeeet little wagon and my roadster.
We met, got breakfast then took the back roads (by storm!) through the wine country and back road hills.
Maybe 60 miles, all told. Great weather, excellent run!

Ted must now remove ALL demerits for teeny bitty baby pics! :D

Just some car guys with 50-year-old cars

Just 4 old Datsuns out for some pics

On Sunday the 80% chance of rain resulted in just a few showers and mostly sun!

On Saturday I drove Sora through the foothills. Gotta love those Solex sounds echoing off the tree-lined canyons!
