Hey Tiki Motorheads, this event sounds like the Mutt's Nuts.

A Free 500 mile "Drive" on public roads...everything from Vintage Lotus' to Vista Cruisers with built in bars in the back...This is the perfect California Foolishness Fest.

I understand the drves thru farm country is nice and pretty in spring (But deceptivly cold) however the partys at night are what is suposed to be fantastic.

Anybody interested in adding a bit of Tiki-Flair to this alreaddy jackassy event? No car rally is complete without a small generator and a few blenders.

Any body interested in jumpin' in?

As I understand it, winners of the event get to the mexican restaurant (finish) before they run out of beer.

Gigantalope, I'll have what you're having! Correct me if I'm wrong but this seems to have already happened last April.

I cleverly posted last years web link
I don't know if there is one up yet for 06, but the event will take place on April 6th and 7th.

Show up at 7:00 am at the Rose Bowl for route notes. I should have my '67 Scout working by then...seems like the perfect ride for farm roads.

Ah, here's a link with this years info...sorry
