5th Annual 2014 "Dan's Drive" Monterey Historics Fun Wine Run to Hahn Winery 8/14!!!

I've been looking forward to this for darned near a year now! It is back! Me and my 1975 Carrera with its newly rebuilt and planted Euro 10:5:1 compression 3.2 is also excited! I will have the correct plates on the car this year, but still the wrong colored headlights (:



The 2014 will serve as the 5th year in a row doing this drive. This even is one of my favorite events of the entire weekend and the participation has grown each year with close to 37 cars last year.



Welcome back to those that have participated in years past and welcome to those that have not. This is NOT a Porsche ONLY event. We've had several cars in the past participating - so if you or your friends care to join without a Porsche, no worries.



In 2011 we had folks participate from PA and LA, CA and Louisiana, 2012, two guys drove down from Washington and two from LA, in 2013 the one of the Washington guys flew to Sacramento and met us for the drive the SAME day! 2014?

This is a fabulous drive to and from Hahn. Wayne was so kind to start this in 2009 and I have tried to keep it going since. The drive has grown each of the past four years and expectations of this years drive being the largest.

A bit of history on the drive:

It all began in 2009, Pelican Parts organized and sponsored a fantastic event at Hahn.

In 2010 the 2nd Annual Pelican (which is what it was called then) drive was cancelled. I thought I would continue the drive that was so much fun. Let me be clear, this is not a Pelican sponsored event - rather something I have organized for us to enjoy! Yes, non-Porsche cars are also welcome (calling Mini Cooper participant).

This year, 2014, the drive will be Thursday, August 14th. We will meet at 8:00AM at Safeway (same parking each year - address below) and the drive will be the same journey as each of the years, commencing at the lovely Hahn Winery. It is a spirited drive through the backcountry of Monterey (we usually see a few CHP along the way), ending up at the picturesque Hahn Estates Winery. The roots of the Hahn Estates Winery date back to the Hahn family’s European heritage. It is a fantastic drive and those that went in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 had a blast and those that missed it, well, missed it.

I have worked with the wonderful folks at Hahn and have made some special arrangements to use the tasting room - parking lot - tables - etc. There are several picnic benches and such for all of us to use, but we will have to bring our own food & drinks. Everyone usually grabs lunch to take with us from the meeting spot, Safeway.

COST = $10.00, which goes to cost of wine tasting. I have guessed at the number or tasters and paid for 45 of us. Please contact me via email so I can keep you on an email list for updates, changes, and tally.

Attached is the route and details.

Plan on being there at 8.00/8.15 with a departure (after buying sandwiches at Safeway) around 9.15. There is a gas station at the same shopping center, but I would strongly suggest filling up PRIOR to departure - not during. You won't catch up.

Start:
Safeway Parking Lot
104 Mid Valley Center
Carmel, CA 93923

Finish:
Hahn Winery Estates
37700 Foothill Road
Soledad, CA 93960

Safeway to Hahn Estates

By the way, to add to the yearly list of incidents, there were three guys that had issues with their cars in 2013 that affected their drive to last years drive.

Sparky's heavily talked about (broke down on the way, towed home) 1969. Thanks Mauricio:





Phil's RS. Made it all the way to Monterey before it broke down. Towed home.


Julio's 1971 911T. Broke down on the was to Monterey (as I recall the story), towed home.

Better late than never...

Dan,
Thank you so much for the invite. Please do count me in for the drive to Hahn (my third consecutive year with the Porsche posse). Unfortunately Dad (Tony) cannot attend this year due to prior obligations...I know he really wanted to join us.

The Mini Cooper GP will not be joining us but instead "Orange Peel". ------>

I'm in!
I will be bringing my 993 for my third run . I am dragging along a co-worker as well. My dad is also supposed to show up in his BMW, so +2 cars and +3 people. I don't think we will participate in the wine tasting though, except maybe my coworker.
Looking forward to it!

Tarpy's sounds like a plan too! Is someone making reservations for all of us? If so, please +2 for Tarpy's.
- Peter

Unfortunately I cant make it Thursday. Dan and Art will have to carry the torch as the only two left who have done every drive since Wayne did the first one!
Have fun and stay off the brakes! See you at the Werks Reunion!
