California is a big state. It might help if people knew where you lived?

Yeah, forgot the location part. I'm in Southern California, Lancaster to be exact. Where is that? Where the Space Shuttle lands when it lands in California, near Willow Springs Raceway, where Frank Zappa went to high school, and where the Flat Earth Society started.

Always amuses me when you northerners from the LA area refer to it as So. Cal. Still over 200 miles left to go before you hit the good fish tacos.

I'd be down for a meet eat and drive, although I don't think there are many people on this forum in socal, it seems mainly east/south states.

And Santa Monica mtns would be really cool . Although I have never ventured out to Lancaster.

We have a myriad of b-roads that are highly technical...

that means stupid people in accidents regularly because they have no concept of lane discipline...

Check Lake Hughes Road, N2, San Fransisquito Road, and Bouquet Canyon Road. Give you a small idea of what's really close to me. I'm also a stones throw from the 33 and 166... which is more of a cruising road but it gets pretty tight and sweet towards Santa Maria. There's a historical type 76 station just outside of Taft on the 166, it was prominently featured in CAR magazine last month in one of their Mercedes test drives here. Uhm... then to the east we have the back road to Big Bear which is nothing but hairpins and to the north we have Willow Springs Road which is fast reaching the end of it's Miata season (black ice from October on usually), that terminates near Tehachapi and a Sonic Burger.

If we can get it going on a weekend, I can probably get a guy from M.net to go as the road guide if we want to make an all day affair out of it. This guy knows all the backroads from San Diego to San Fransisco and could drive from one city to the other without ever touching a freeway. Hell, he drove from Long Beach to San Fran and back in the same day without ever hopping on a freeway.

I may also still be na if this happens soon as I need to get my clutch done(probably at a shop), and as I have zero turbo experience I think that will take a while too. It still sounds like a great drive.

Here are some pics from prior drives.

We went on another drive after I went turbo, but I had clutch and bog down problems.
