    Driving the other Sunday I saw a group of Rovers rallying to a lunch point, displaying their rigs, street presence, and just hanging out and getting to know each other. Thought crossed my mind:

    What say on a Sunday SO. Cal (any other location welcome) LC guys, gals, familys, dogs, etc. rally and end up at a popular spot on the map for lunch where we can display some LC pride? I love the trail, but young and enthusiastic, I also love showing everyday people what and LC can look like (think of it as a LC marketing strategy and imagine the wtf snorkel look you get times 50). Not to mention, not having to put in any wrench and wash time like a post trail event.

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on the above....and if it looks like the support/desire is there I'll try and whip up an event for a Sunday Lunch and scenic drive within the next month or so.

    We did this in AZ a couple of times, even towed an RTI ramp to the location and parked a couple of big trucks up on it, one guy brought a small TV/VCR combo and was playing videos off of his converter. We signed up a bunch of people for the club and TLCA...

    I was thinking something like starting out South somewhere off PCH, and drive through Malibu & Santa Monica ending up at "Mel's Diner" on Sunset Blvd. REal simple no shlepping of food although I love a good pot luck, and maybe have a director or 2 approach us while driving down the Sunset/Hollywood strip about putting us in a movie, lol. Mel's diner can fit about 40 cars, plus lots of parking around and it's a real social place to be at with quality food that's resonably priced.

    Sounds fun - playing in the SM mountains anywhere? Had an RX7 back in the 80's when I lived up in that area so not a clue as to anything other than paved roads!

    Count me in if you're meeting at Pinks :D

    I might drive down for a meeting at Tommy's...


    Mel's though? We have a few of those here up north...

    Good idea though.

    HMMMM,
    Pinks, didn't think of that, I haven't had one of those in a LONG time. One of my concerns in looking at a location is ample parting and accessability. I"m gonna look at Pinks and a Tommys, 2 great locations thanx for the mention.

    Sam,

    Hey, from NJ....

    Let me know where and when, if we drive thru Malibu I may be able to get us on some top secret Malibu trails in the mountains over looking the ocean, great for lunch and camping. But its private property and I kinda know the owner through a "friend of a friend deal". I'll look into it when I get back into town next week.

    Normally I'd take you up on that -- and I might in the future ;)

    However, I'll be visiting a certain mouse this weekend, so I'll be able to get a quick fix in.

    There's a local radio station that send one of their guys to LA on a United or SouthWest flight, had him buy a bunch of chilli cheese burgers, chilli, fries, etc. and flew it all back to Sacramento for some kind of promo give-away they were doing. As much as I like Tommy's...I had to pass on that.

    I am all for this. Got my 7 year daughter into 80s cruisers and I know she would love to see the modified ones (since mine is still stock :frown: ). Lets get some dates and locations. :)
