Re: LA Area Auto Museums and NHRA trip

Hi Mike: I live in Trabuco Canyon (Coto De Caza) and would love to check out your rig when you are camped at O'neill.

.....and as an FYI, there are two restaurants in the canyon; Rose Canyon Cantina (Mexican) and Trabuco Oaks steakhouse. Both are great places to eat, and Trabuco Oaks is rather cool/funky as well. They both are about 5 minutes from where you will be camping. There is also a general store right across the street from the campground.

We should all try to meet up while Mike is in town......I live in Silverado and work a few days a week in Trabuco Canyon(The Path Bike Shop......near the post office).

Re: LA Area Auto Museums and NHRA trip

Sunday I will be coming from the Fairplex after the races are over, so it could be 7-8 or later. I will PM you my cellphone # so we can coordinate.

Monday I will be in the campground by 4 or 5.

Let's get together, as I said earlier - the more the merrier!

Mike

Re: LA Area Auto Museums and NHRA trip

Nethercutt may also have a private tour in addition to the public ones. It is a great place with an incredible history behind it.

I see on Nov 8th you will be in Los Angeles at Petersen.
What time are you going to the Petersen on the 8th ?

I have a home up in the Hollywood hills and if a few people want to get together after the Petersen let me know. It is only a few miles away from the Petersen.

Now you're talking Jeff. A Hollywood party is what's been missing from our smb meets.

I have the whole day for the Petersen. No hurrying here. I'm on the Vault tour at either 11 or 1, can't remember. Probably be done there between 2 and 5. Depends on how much I enjoy it.

The Nethercutt Collection (across the street from the Museum) is by appointment only. I'm signed up for that also on the same day as the Museum.

Let me know an address and my GPS will get there, even if I need 4wd!

Mike

Re: LA Area Auto Museums and NHRA trip

Mike --

you are welcome to come up to my house anytime.....

Maybe best to wait and see if more members wish to get together post Petersen visit.

If more than a handful, then I think my Tennis Club offers a great
venue of a lot of parking space, plus inside - outside area for getting together.
depending on the time there is a full Bar and perhaps dining or have something delivered if around dinner time. Club is just off Melrose and Vine area for anyone who wanting to know. The Peterson is at Wilshire and Fairfax just a few miles away.

If just a few people then my home is also a great place off the 101 FWY in hollywood and up a small hill. My home is about 5 miles North East of the Petersen.

The Vault tour should be fun but don't think they will actually let you roam around the race cars they have. I happen a car down in the Vault area. It is an old limited edition Boss Mustang dating back to 1971-72 yr when they shut down the Boss Edition.

The Vault tour is a guided tour, so you are not free to roam. And it is $25, but I should do it while I'm there since I don't know if or when I'll get back to the Petersen.

Looking forward to meeting up with you (and others).

Mike

I believe I'm signed up for the 11:00 tour on the 8th. If you want to go on the same tour you have to call and make a reservation. You can check if M. Ledtje is on the tour to verify.
