    Thanks, guys. All very helpful - now need to map it out. I believe most meets happen on Sunday morning, so might not be able to do all (need to prioritise).

    Will plan to go to as many as I can make it to.

    Ive been to the Petersen every year (and will probably drop down this time as well to see any new exhibits).

    I prefer CnCs though - much more casual affair with car guys all around, you get to meet owners and talk about their great machines and experiences.

    Thanks, buddy. Would be delighted to catch you at the meet (not for the ticket, but just to introduce and meet a member of the board). Will look into which ones I can make and drop you a line if Iím heading to an OC based meet.

    Forget car meets, you need to do a long drive on some of the great roads that SoCal offers.
    Indeed!!! Only wish I had my GT with me (maybe next year?).

    Any particular routes you would recommend?

    The iconic LA drives:

    1.) Mulholland Dr: start at Beverly Hills Hotel and drive up Coldwater Cyn; upto Mulholland Dr East; take it 6 miles all the way winding on dips, bends, twisties to Highland Dr.

    -two options:

    >go over little bridge over 101 to Lake Hollywood and drive up to HOLLYWOOD sign.

    OR

    >take 101 North for 20miles to Kanan Dume Rd and cross it through Canyons all the way to PCH / Ocean; right onto Zumba beach (pit stop at Trancas Market for Starbucks or Lunch.) If it’s Sunday, the Supercar Sunday C&C is right off 101 at Topanga Cyn Blvd exit; can do and head north with other car guys after.

    2.) Mugu Point Rock: take PCH north from Trancas all way to Point Mugu Rock (15 miles).

    OR

    3.) PCH South: drive down to Malibu or Santa Monica for lunch / brunch / dinner

    -Geoffrey’s (5 Star)
    -NOBU
    -SoHo House
    -Dukes
    -Moonshadows
    -Mastros Ocean Club (5 Star)
    -Gladstone’s

    Santa Monica Ocean Ave

    All in r/t 110 miles from Sunset or Hotel (I do it every other wknd).


    Other routes are: take earlier exits off 101 to:

    Topanga Canyon; then take PCH up from Palisades

    Los Virgenes to Malibu Cyn to Pepperdine and Malibu C&C across the st.

    Mulholland Highway off Kanan for “snake” down to PCH

    Taking Sunset Blvd from Hotels, to Bel Air, Brentwood and Pacifc Palisades also drops you at PCH and you can shoot up PCH all the way too.

    Option two is most epic with wide sweeping turns and vistas of water; best before 9 am to avoid traffic.

    Will see plenty of Cobras, 60s Ferrari’s, E-types, 60s 911s and Gullwings.

    We have our weekly South OC Cars and Coffee in San Clemente. It's held every Saturday morning from 9 to 11AM. It's right off of Interstate 5. We usually have between 300 to 500 cars. We have special parking for exotics. I am one of the photographers and I usually have my yellow GT there so please say hi!

    Thanks all, Jay

    Thanks all for the advice and particular shout-out to Kayvan for the turn by turn on the driving routes. Im actually staying very close by Cold Water Cyn road and have gone down Mulholland - nice to know of continuation routes that I could add.

    For the days im going to be in LA, looks like I will only be able to make the South OC CnC, which seems to be a good one. Maybe ill bump into some forum folks at the event.
