    Is anyone going to the 'un-official' Crystal Cove Promenade drive on New Year's Day morning?

    While at CCP a couple of weeks ago, I was handed a flyer about this drive.

    When: January 1, 2004
    Time: Maps will be handed out at 9:00 am ... depart at 9:15 am
    Where to: Drive the streets of the Orange County Coastal Mountains.
    Duration: About 2 hours

    Does anyone else have more information about this drive? If it is still on, I'm going to attend, weather permitting.

    Sounds like fun ... what better way to start the year off!

    Hey Cannoli,

    If it's a go... I'd be interested in joining you. I'm in Oceanside myself and could use a good excuse to leave the wife home and avoid the honey-do stuff...


    Let me know

    I just found the flyer that I was handed to when I was at CC a couple of weeks ago ...

    *****************************

    New Year Day 2004

    TOUR d'ORANGE

    The first opportunity of the new year to
    clear your head and cruise some of
    the Orange County's back roads with some
    like minded enthusists.

    Meet a Cystal Cove

    January 1st, 2004

    9 AM route maps
    9:15 Depart

    We will arrive at our destination around lunchtime so
    pack a lunch or get one along the way.

    This is not an anti-football rally, it is a half day tour.
    No cost, no sponsors, no whiners.

    *****************************

    I have no confirmation that this is still on, but what the heck, I'll still head out to CC and enjoy the coastline drive, have an espresso and just enjoy the morning.

    Hey Jordan -- I remember you offered to give me directions once. How do I get there from West LA (near UCLA)?

    Get to the 405 South and head down about 35 miles. Exit on Jamboree Road (its just past Orange County/John Wayne Airport) and head right. Head down Jamboree for about 8 miles until you get to PCH. Make a left on PCH and Crystal Cove will be about 5 miles down on your left hand side. Cant miss it! Just follow the classic cars around you :) Id try and get to the show around 7am.

    This is the first 'un-organized' rally from CC that I'm aware of. Now, on the other hand, FDC does 'organized' rallies.

    JDB, your Spider looked great ... I just love that color! Going through the canyon roads, I had great enjoyment listening to your engine scream - you shifted gears sharply ... nice job.
