SO CAL GTG April 2009 Sylmar CA

I'm looking to put another So CAL GTG/Drive in about 90 days time. I want to meet at Valencia MB and drive Bouquet Canyon, to Spunky Canyon, to San Fransisquito Canyon to Elizabeth Lake rd. West to Lake Hughes to visit the Rock House for lunch (I can see the street and parking lot lined with Classic MB's). From there ??? I haven't driven the last leg yet, so that is still up in the air. This drive isn't as long as the one just completed, so there will be more time at either end and the middle to do swap and sell and??

I have talked to the Parts Manager at Valencia and he'll get us the OK to use the parking lot and they are open on Saturday's too (Yeah! Parts and Potty). I'm trying to get them to donate some things to us too. He sounded like that may be a possibility.

Trying to shoot for the First Saturday of April.
Let's get a firm date and then have the mod make a sticky.

SoCAL GTG April 4th 2009 Sylmar CA.

What: GTG and New, Old, Classic, Antique, Diesel, Gasser, Drive to the Casa Gutierrez in Leona Valley for Lunch up a scenic canyon and back down another scenic canyon to, it time permits, a local JY.

When: April 4, 2009, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Where:
Nethercutt Auto Museum
15200 Bledsoe St.
Sylmar, Ca

We will do a Nethercutt Auto Museum tour at 10:00 A.M. Followed by the canyon drive to Leona Valley.
Lunch will be at Casa Gutierrez, Mexican and Seafood Restaurant in Leona Valley. The owner has graciously given us the banquet room up stairs, and he'll clear the parking lot for us if I call ahead so we can stage our cars in front and around the place. They aren't too busy on Sat afternoons. They have good steaks and Seafood there as well as some American food.

The Meet and greet will take place at the Nethercutt Auto Museum parking lot a short distance from I-5. We will do a tour at 10:00 A.M. then take the 5 to the 14 north to Sand Canyon Exit, left to Sierra Hwy, Right to Vasquez Canyon to Bouquet Canyon. Right 20-25 miles to Elizabeth Lake Rd. Left 2 1/2 miles to Casa Gutierrez in Leona Valley.

We will do lunch, have the raffle drawing and do the door prizes and have the swap/sell/buy parts there. When finished we will continue on Elizabeth Lake Rd. to San Fransquito Canyon back to the Valencia area. This canyon comes out on Copper Hill Rd, Right to Newhall Ranch Rd., Right to I-5, Then if there is time we can go to a local JY. I would suggest full fuel tanks just to be safe.

Remember this GTG is for Colin Coon and Ol' Norm and please bring a container of either cleaned used Veggie oil or new or a small donation for Colin. The raffle proceeds will be given in the entirety to Colin to help him on his way home.

For those that don't know. Colin has converted Ol Norm, a 300TD to use WVO and is making a sort of One lap around America. The conversion and the trip is his senior project in high school. Colin wants to become an alternative fuels engineer.
He'll be our guest. If you Google Colin's Green Machine you can find his website and daily blog. As of yesterday he is in Dayton Ohio, having driven from Sarasota Fl. through Washington D.C. on his way here to CA. from CA he will be returning to Sarasota Fl.


I'm working on an email invitation flyer for folks to print out. I will have maps available on the day of the GTG and drive.

All Mb's are welcome.

Everyone welcome.

Here is the Last combined(other forums) attendee list.
if there are any changes or others that want to attend, please sign up here.

There was interest in seeing the Collection in the 2 story building. Unfortunately, there are only two tours on Saturdays, one at 10:00 A.M. and the other at 1:30 P.M. Both are fully booked and they cannot accommodate us for that part of the museum. The Auto Museum is not a reserved basis and we will be able to tour the museum at our leisure.

I would like to take this moment to personally Thank Lenny Sage, Kevin Malone (owners) and Eric Larzelere (parts Mgr.) of Mercedes Benz of Valencia, CA for their more than generous donation of Mercedes Benz items for the GTG and Drive. These will be some of the Door prizes and raffle prizes for the GTG. They donated a lot of items.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

GTG and Drive is Sat April 4th (:00 A.M. at the Nethercutt Auto Museum 15200 Bledsoe st., Sylmar CA.

See you all there and don't for get your raffle item(MB or otherwise) and your donation of Clean WVO or new Veggie Oil (at least Qt. size bottles, Bigger are better!) or a cash donation for Colin Coon.
Colin is in Valencia as I write this and will join us before we leave for the Canyon drive.
Remember the proceeds of the raffle with go to Colin to help defray expences back home to Sarasota Fla.

Thanks in advance for your participation.

ANYONE with a MB whatever age is welcome to join us for a fun day.
