Sonoma / Napa Monthly "Spirited Drive"

Post by petrol »

People of Northern California: a couple of us have been doing a loose gathering & drive the last couple of months, and our next outing is this coming Saturday, June 20th. We meet up in Santa Rosa at Acre Coffee in Montgomery Village at 9am, and head out through some amazing roads around Sonoma and Napa. We aren't fussy about car makes- there may be Porsches and MGs with us, anyone is welcome, but obviously it's great to get a bunch of Datsuns together. Let us know if you're interested in coming and I'll get a route to you.

It’s at Acre Coffee: 173 N McDowell Blvd Unit B, Petaluma, CA 94954. There are multiple Acre locations in Petaluma, so note the address. FYI I’m hearing this Acre location may be shut down either permanently or temporarily due to COVID-19, but we’re sticking to this location for the meetup. If you need to grab a coffee, there’s a Peet’s and a Starbucks nearby.

I tried to meet up with you guys this morning, but was about 15 min late due to slow drivers getting over there (35 in a 55 all the way up Silverado Trail, then another person who couldn't go the speed limit over Calistoga Rd) but you guys had already left. Tried to again find you in Petaluma, didn't really know where I was going, but eventually found the place. You guys had again, already left, so I just headed home.

I hope it was a good drive.

Next time PM a tel number to the attendees, usually whoever organized the run, so that you can make sure you don’t miss anyone who is lost, has a breakdown etc.
Will, I bet you know some nice roads around Napa.

Ah, Will, that's a shame! There was a beautiful white E30 M3 on the drive, and I just assumed it was you (no idea what year yours is), and planned to introduce myself at the end, which I didn't get a chance to do. I live off Calistoga Road, so I know how it feels to get stuck behind a slow car.

I think we had about 5 or 6 roadsters show up, along with an amazing group of MGs (boo!) Alfa's, Porsche's, Lancia's, Jag's, Merc's, Ferrari's, etc. Here's a link to a video Troy uploaded to FB:

Linda- that's good advice; I'll do that next time, which, BTW, is July 25th.

My M3 is black. Sounds like it was a good drive. I'm curious who had the white one.

Yep, we came in from SF. I’ll be going to the next one in my 1600 this time. Such a great selection of cars. Lots of Z’s. See you on the next run
