I'm planning on taking the SMB to the LA area for the NHRA finals (Nov. 10th) and while there I would like to meet as many forum members as possible and take in several well know automobile museums.
Any SoCal members want to meet up for either the drags or any of the museums? Any SoCal members have suggestions for places to camp? For the drags and the NHRA Museum there is either the Fairplex KOA or Puddingstone Reservoir. For other museums it is possible to drive back and forth, but I'd rather stay closer to Tustin, El Segundo, LA, and Sylmar when I visit those museums.
Dates are open, but the NHRA Museum makes sense to visit on Thurs/Fri before the races.
The Marconi Museum in Tustin is the only one open on Monday, so that date is sorta fixed.
The rest are open.
There are two more museums in Oxnard that I might visit on my way out of town, if I have been burned out looking at cars.
Comments and suggestions welcome.
