@MyDDtracktoy not sure of the time- gotta wash my car first though (don't wanna be *that* guy!). And... I'm still @ friggin work!

FYI: Last night I got conflicting info whether the car is going to be down there for both Sat and Sunday, or just Sunday. I'll prob stop by anyway, since I'll be out running errands anyway...

MindofT.com and HFD NorCal open car meet and greet! Come and share your ride with fellow enthusiasts.
This is a secured and permitted venue at IKEA, so there will be no police hassles or getting kicked out. Police will be on standby if there are any cars being reckless and endangerment to others.
IKEA West Sacramento is very low car friendly! No crazy driveways or speed bumps to scrape on.
IKEA Court has tons of places to eat as well- In n Out Burger, Wingstop, Burger King, Beach Hut Deli, Chipotle, Tutti Frutti Yogurt, Taco Bell, McDonalds, and of course the IKEA restaurant.

Normal meet rules apply! No over revving engines, no burnouts, no loud music. Just be respectful of others as others are to you. Police will be on standby to those that are rude, but WILL NOT HASSLE to those that are not.
Once again, I have secured and permitted this lot for the day, hopefully I can continue hosting this meet spot in the future.


The meet will be taking place in the parking lot between IKEA and WalMart.

FYI... (lifted from the other forum)...

"Hello again everyone, next drive we are doing will be on June 9th. We will come to the bay area again but know the next one or two will be up towards Sacramento, as we need to share the commuting for these drives ;-)

We will meet at the EuroSunday of Silicon Valley meeting spot.
Date: 6/9/12
Time: 9:00am
Location: Konditorei‎, 3130 Alpine Road, Portola Valley, CA 94028

Leave for the drive will be at 10:00AM on the dot. You are late you had better play catch up.

Sacramento Caravan
Time: 6:00am ON THE DOT departure - I know it is early UG HAHA
Location: Chevron, 4800 W Capitol Ave, West Sacramento, CA 95691

Drive will loop through the hills and end up for lunch in Santa Cruz. I have a few roads that if someone has the time I would like to have checked. These are side roads and sometimes are closed so want to make sure we are not stuck.

As usual, maps will be provided the day of the drive. Please bring two-way radios if you have them for safety and a laugh when just cruising along."


(original post)

Edit: BTW, I drove 3/4ths of the route this evening- nice and twisty!

Okay here's the next NorCal drive (more after the jump)...
"Norcal - Sacramento / Bay - July 1 drive

Hello All, The next drive I have planned on the books is up in Sacramento Area. I have outlined the details below. Meeting spot is in El Dorado Hills..." link: http://www.northamericanmotoring.com...y-1-drive.html


A short review of the previous run (listed above) via yours truly: Nice to run w/ people who actually know how to drive. If you can sit thru the Bimmer stats and M-talk w/o sticking a pen in your ear that is.

FWIW, I've never been in this part of NorCal so it'd sure be nice to roll w/ some people I actually know. (jus' sayin').
