You know!! A cruise down West/East Cliff drive, Hit the boardwalk, down the wharf, maybe end up in downtown Capitola.

I think it would be pretty sweet!! :)

EDIT: Plus highway 1 !!!! Highway 1 PEOPLE!!! :)

Do that every year (but the other way around) before the Cops N Rodders Car Show in Scotts Valley.

i had a customer come in and tell me about this show.. But i thought it was pre 1970! Thats RAD! I'll be there :) , and Bruce, would you happen to have a son, Kevin? If so, I believe I met him outside of Kinkos. Super nice!!

Yep. He told me about that. Welcome to the club. What we do when other club members want to go to this show is meet up at the county building and drive over to the Boardwalk. After the cruise then it's over to Siltanan Park where we can all park together. July gets very hot over there, so if you do go bring an awning if you have one.

Thats a great tip Bruce about the awning. Santa Cruz kinda gets you in this "it's 70 degrees every day, but bring a sweatshirt" mentality. Are you heading to the USS hornet next weekend?? Also, I heard about a mint condition D at the elks lodge yesterday. Was that you? Or the other guy in town with the licence plate "DELOREN" ? Very curious :)

I was going to take my '55 Ford wagon this year but I've decided to replace the engine in it instead. The thing is, that the new engine is up in Spokane so my buddy will be up that way dropping off my old and picking up the new the first part of July. Don't think it and the tranny will be back in by then. Soooo, it looks like I'll take my D again. I think Rich and Luigi may be going as well.

Change of plans...I'm taking the wagon. To be able to stay together while cruising and at the event, we should meet at the County Building (701 Ocean Street) prior to driving over to the Boardwalk. Now if you want to do the cruise and ensure a good spot at the event, we'd have to get to the Boardwalk at least by 7:00 which would mean meeting at 6:45. However, for the past 2 years we have been forgoing the cruise in favor of getting a good parking spot on the lawn by leaving after the "Breakfast of Champions". Then it wouldn't matter what time we meet, just so we do between 7-7:30 giving us time to register and eat. It's up to you guys. Remember though, there is no saving spots on the lawn at the event, but it can and has been done BUT, it's the luck of the draw.

Oh, forgot to mention that if you want your car judged, registration closes tomorrow. You can register the morning of the event if judging doesn't matter to you.

Sooooooo, what is everyone doing on this? Are you guys, or do you normally do the escorted drive? If we stay together on the drive do we stand a chance on parking together? I'm the new guy on this event so just let me know. I'm game either way.:headbang:

Bruce Johnson

Staying together either cruising or going straight to the event you are always guaranteed to park together, one simply leads the others. However depending on when you arrive at the Boardwalk, and if you cruise, will determine where you park at the event, either the upper or lower field. First come first served. The upper field is best. I am all for not cruising but if one or two decide to cruise I could save the spots, provided there are 2 cars to do so. Simply fill in the spaces between the 2. I have a 10x10 awning we could wrangle around to save the space as well. Again, nothing is guaranteed if this is the way we go. I recommend you do the cruise if you haven't before and take your chances. We'll figure something out. BTW I know you and Rich are going....who else?

Cool thanks for the input..... I'm an early bird, but my wife ----not so much. I'll try to get to the Boardwalk early so to get a good spot. If it looks like were going to run later then we'll go straight to the park. PM me your cell and I'll keep in touch. Were staying in Capitola on Friday night and Saturday night so we will be close in the morning!!!!!:coffee:

Let's plan to meet at the Santa Cruz County Building, 701 Ocean Street, at 6:45. Then we'll all drive over to the Boardwalk, park together and have coffee and donuts. We can decide then whether or not any of us will want to do the cruise. I have a 10X10 awning. We'll need it! If anyone else still wants to join in, you can register at 7:00 am but your car will not be judged at the event. See you all there.

Yep, I got my confirmation card for this event, too.

Looks like 4 total so far, including Bruce in his '55 Ford and adding Luigi to your list here based on his post #3 to this thread. Perhaps Luigi will confirm it.

My brother-in-law entered his '69 Charger in this show but I'm not expecting him in our group.

See you there, earlybirds!

Fun in the California sun yesterday in and around Santa Cruz:

Bruce left his D home in favor of his sharp-looking '55 Ford wagon, which accompanied Stephen's and Rich's D's. The cars queued up in the early morning fog at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, followed by a half-hour police-escorted cruise for >100 cars via Capitola to the Scotts Valley venue of the Cops 'n' Rodders car show. We enjoyed blowing through dozens of stop signs and traffic signals all the way there.

When the fog burned off in Scotts Valley we showed the stainless on a sunny day with lots of for story-swapping and the usual high interest level from attendees. First place in the '80's division went to Stephen, second place was for Rich.

Big thanks go to Bruce for making it happen - again! And thanks for sharing that canopy, too.

Hi guys,
I just had someone back into my RH door. The dent is about 10 in. diameter and it popped back out but left a circular crease line in the stainless steel. The door works OK but the window is jammed. Any idea who I might contact to get it fixed? By the way, I am an Elks member and license plate is DELORAN. I live in Ben Lomond and I met you before Bruce. I lost your number or I would call you.

Holy crap, that really sucks. Hope you find Bruce, I don't have his contact info or I'd send it over. Try sending a pm to user 'Rich', he may have it.
