Default Re: West Coast - USA meet @ Napa

This is a great beginning for such meets in the West Coast. Ideally, this should progress to a real driving meet where you get to put the cars through some real two-lane twisties. A whole day event where we get drive at least couple of hundred miles, at least, with breaks at some good locales. Obviously, it takes a whole lot of planning and can also include interested family members to join the 'spirited' drive.

Ideally, some roads between SF and LA, to make possible participation of members from SoCal. There are a ton of such roads in the area with some great locales for breaks.

Great going guys!
It feels nice to see a US meet on the West Coast.
We had a few meets on the East Coast a few years ago where a bunch of members got together.

The cars all look great!

Yes, definitely take up VLOCT on his offer and do a drive. Trust me, it's a blast.

Here's a thread about a drive we did a few years ago:
Tri State USA group drive interest? EDIT: Pics Pg. 6 onwards

This is pretty awesome guys. I just moved to the Bay Area all the way from Kentucky, and would love to join another such meet someday.

I'm quite likely in, unless some unavoidable stuff happens at work. Anyone coming earlier - Can we start a bit earlier? I would definitely need to move by 9. See you guys there.
