I was about 20 feet off your rear when you got a little squirrley. I was sitting back there thinking, "Doh! Oh, he's got it... oh... wait... almost... nope... damn." I think you did a great job holding it together. With all those trees and no real run-off, it could have been MUCH worse.

heeee, heee,hee that's all I can say for now.

P.S> Don't speed through Burbank. All Burbank caps are out on the road today. I'm guessing they get double time on Thanksgiving.

Fellas. Looks like a great run.

I wasn't able to make it because I just got back from 4 days in Monterey with the Wickd one.

Please keep posting!
Looks like a great collection of cars and a lot of awesome people!

Looking forward to the next run.

Joe that is good stuff man! Glad your Dad came out to visit and your ol Toad looks awesome. You SoCal guys sure make it tough to live where there is a winter... and it is cool to see the 959 getting used as much as she is.

Mishap II

Hey Patrick B,

It was great meeting you and your baby, my baby's sister

Wow, this was really fun.

Unfortunately, trying to keep up with the top 5 was too much for my boy, Melvin. He was in the jump seat and the g-forces made him....... VOMIT

Yeap, all over me and my baby.

I was in dis-belief and calmly pulled over. I was the '85 White Targa off the road. Well, it was only slightly used Hot Chocolate.

Good news it came out fine and I needed to clean those carpets anyways

I also took the time to snap some photos of you guys passing by. Will post later.

After the Mishap II, I decided to take my boy home and let him rest. The drive home was nice. We laughed all the way home. Melvin felt really bad

Can't wait for the next Gang Meeting

Porsche Crest Just Try'in to Keep Up!

We had a great time!



My wife Judy and I drove our 1970 911, Silver/Black. With all the big displacement Porsche cars in attendance, I was Heel-Toe-in like a madman. But...when I saw that big black twin turbo...I just pulled to the side and let him pass.

I was pleased to see how well my long hood handled the curves and was glad I insalled the old sport muffler for the run. There is nothing like the RAW feel of an early car. Light, Nimble and Responsive!

PS...my wife Judy is pictured in the car, and I have the cup of starbuck's in my hand on the far right.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving as we did.

See you soon,

Paul & Judy

Sweet, I'm glad that everyone had a great time. This yearly event is really picking up some steam since Jack and I first thought of doing a Mul run on T-Giving about 3-4 years ago. I was wary of this route, but it turned out very well indeed!

Thanks everyone for the pics - I forgot my camera today (duh).

-Wayne
