Yeah, I know, it's late notice, but we can be spontaneous right? ;)

A group of us from the Turbobricks site (a Volvo Turbo forum) are going to have a small gathering and canyon cruise tomorrow, June 30th. We are meeting at Starbucks in La Canada/Flintridge at 11am and expect to be done by 2-3pm with a stop at In-n-Out for lunch.

I'm going to be driving the Alfa and thought I'd throw this out there for any others looking for something to do tomorrow.

Below is a copy of the post from T-Bricks with directions, etc... Hope to see a few AlfaBB members there :)


Anyway, the cruise is ON. Here are a few notes:

1. Make sure to be there by 11 am sharp. (directions below)
2. Arrive with at least a half-tank of gas.
3. Obviously, make sure you car is mountain-road worthy (tire pressures, brake linings, coolant, etc...)
4. Bring a few bucks for an IN-N-OUT lunch, milkshake, or whatever. We'll be stopping there fairly early in the cruise--before noon--a good place to eat, open hoods, and talk shop.
5. Camera. Bring one.
6. Be prepared to drive safely, not over-aggressively. We want to make this fun and safe for all who are involved, and we want to avoid run-ins with any law enforcement, who actively patrol the canyons on weekends.


Now for directions to the start/end point:

Starbucks
1929 Verdugo Blvd. #A
La Canada, California 91011
818-790-4681 (the store's phone #, not mine)

Note: we will meet in the parking lot a bit to the west of the Starbucks, down the slope a little ways (you'll see what we mean--just look for my white T5)

Coming From 210 East (Valley Area Simi, Chatsworth)
Exit Ocean View Blvd.
Turn Right onto Ocean View Blvd.
Left onto Honolulu Ave
Honolulu turns into Verdugo Blvd. and the entrance will be on your left hand side

It was a great day for a drive. I took the Alfa, there were a couple of S60's, one an R model with some tasty mods, a Saab, Jetta, S70 T5 and a 740tic. It was a good mix. We started in La Canada, went west on the 210 to Little Tujunga, over Sand canyon to the In-N-Out in Canyon Country. Then up Soledad Canyon to Angeles Forest and then back down to La Canada on Angeles Crest. There was very little traffic, except for the Crest, to be expected on a Sat afternoon. Hopefully, if we do more of these, I can drag a few Alfa owners along. :)
