Xipher!  Hope you've been well.  That day in '09 feels like so long ago!  I haven't looked at the pics from that day for quite a while.  Mine's Road from San Jose to Livermore.  Fun drive.  I had a lot of trouble keeping up with everyone, having the only carb'ed car on the cruise. I seem to remember your tires howling in protest on every turn!  :lol:  Maybe someday, we can find enough of us in NorCal to do that road again.  Then again, maybe enough of us can get our cars up and running again.  :wacko:  Thanks for sharing.

Sadly, it might be a while before we can do Mines Road up Mt. Hamilton and the Lick Observatory.  Area currently under evacuation due to fire started by lightning strikes.  Lick Observatory currently being threatened.   :(

Survivin!

 

Yeah, I burned up the front tires on that 626GT I was driving that day :) it was a bit of a boat, great in a straight line but not much else..

 

It looks like the observatory so far is doin' ok, fire sure did get close though...

 

I've got a CRX still, but... its had the engine and trans sitting on a hoist in front of it in my garage for years now, I don't have the time to do any work anymore and I'd pay to have it done but I don't know of anyone anywhere that'd even be willing to do the work, I can't even find basic parts, I'm close to selling it off to someone else who might already have parts cars and such and could use a clean roller with extra goodies on it.

I was behind your 626.  Your tires howling and you really weren't taking the turns very hard.  Ah, the entertainment one can hear in a Rex Spyder.  Lick Observatory still standing - Reported that its buildings are being used as a fire lookout.  The surrounding mountain area looks scorched as does some areas of Mines Road.
