In the 27 months we’ve owned our speedster, I thought I was fully aware of the joys these little cars could bring. This weekend I was proved wrong. I found there’s much more the Speedster brings; and that’s comradery.
This weekend was my first SOC West Coast meetup. And definitely won’t be my/our last. A huge thanks to @Robert M, for doing all the planning and organization. I hope you still had a blast. The drives were amazing. I was able to push my car harder than I have in the past; knowing that with the brain power around me, any problems I could have caused could be fixed with duct tape and whatever we could find nearby.
Thanks to those that provided all the cool swag, tour books, the lunch, the dinner, the entertainment ( @Cory McCloskey and @Will Hesch; “Hello Flatbed my Old Friend”), and to the ladies that sang Janis Joplin’s “Oh Lord Won’t you Buy Me, A Mercedes-Benz”. Also, thanks to @Cory McCloskey for educating all of us guys on feminine products. it was a very educational experience; if only you were in my Safeway, I would have less miles on my car(s) from doing return trips
I’m happy I met a large number of you; it’s great to finally put a face to the name. I look forward to joining up with you in the near future (Tour d’Napa??)
If there really is a group interested in a Tour d'Napa, start posting interest. It's not too early (or late) to put together something. Trust me, there are some good twisties with beautiful scenery and ....you guessed it...a "few" decent winery stops! You can count on great weather in both September and October.
