Grady in LA July 10-11, 2012. Gathering of the Flock anyone?

Grady in LA July 10-11, 2012. Gathering of the Flock anyone?
Guys (& gals), I’m in Anaheim for two days and would like to get together with my SoCal friends.
After ten+ days ‘on-the-road’ in a 5-door Tundra with kids, I need a Porsche fix (and a break).
Anyone up for a ‘Gathering of the (Pelican) Flock’ Tuesday (6/10/12) evening?
I’m available to play both Tuesday and Wednesday - days.
I could use a ride or I’m sure there is a local eatery.

This morning (Monday), I’ll be taking a dip in the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits so I’ll be out of touch (old laptop technology me). The ideal would be to find a dinner location near Pelican.

Did I mention that I could use a ride?
I'll be at a Best Western near Disney $-park in Aneheim (the 5 & Ball Rd.) starting tonight (Monday).

Best,
Grady

I'm game(y).

Across the street and a couple blocks down from the Tar Pits is the Petersen Automotive Museum which has a nice collection. I also really like the Japanese Pavilion at the LA County Museum of Art. All good stuff.


Someone come up with a good venue that is conversation friendly. (My favorites are near the beach...)

We could meet at Pelican informally and then migrate to a bar nearby possibly. Tonight is out for me, but perhaps Tuesday or Wed?

Here's what it looks like right now:

Damn I wish I could be there.

PS. Grady, if you ever get to New Orleans, I'd be happy to collect some folks who would like to meet you. Nothing nearly as cool to see as what Wayne has to offer, but...

It would have to be Tuesday for me. Wednesday is taken with a trip to visit #100's brother.

When I look at Wayne's garage (and wonder how anyone would ever leave to go to a bar), it occurs to me that these things that few get to touch should be really touchable. The teams were fast and prepped to do whatever they needed to to get those cars back out. They were not stage props, that touched wrong would collapse.

Didn't realize that the Lola/Porsche/Boat Anchor had made its way to the Pelican garage. Hope it brings more happiness to Wayne than it did during its racing days...

OK, today, Tuesday afternoon/evening it is.
We meet at Pelican at what time? About 5:00 seems good for me and Wayne.
What nearby restaurant (for latecomers)?

Pelican Quicksilver is going to pick me up at my hotel in Anaheim. We will try and get to Wayne’s by 5:00 PM.

See everyone there.

Best,
Grady

Wayne,

Thanks for your hospitality; Pelican is looking great in its new digs. I see a huge increase in efficiency and serviceability. It is good to see friends-of-friends working and the enthusiasm of the staff. Your ‘saving’ some old racers is very worthwhile. Keep it up.

Pelican [Quicksilver[/i] provided quick transport down the Riverside 91. Thank you. That was a fun ride and stories .

All the ‘stories’ were the highlight. I never realized so many of us secretly read The World Book under the covers (ages 9-12).

Thanks again.

Best,
Grady
