We did Willow Springs and Buttonwillow tracks and spent night in Paso Robles. Friday was backroads to Carmel/Monterey and then Laguna Seca for a few laps. Today we are back in Paso after more two lane rural roads. Stan is driving our 2800, Mike is in his Nachtblau, here are a few pics.

    Impressions:
    About 100 hairpin turns, 3 days of twisties, hundreds of miles of open road, much barely 2 lane. High speed driving through ranch land, vineyards, and ocean view. This is my second Targa thanks to Chris who graciously let me use his Neue Klasse 2000 (5 years ago) and the 2800. To say this is a bucket list event is an understatement. The last part of my bucket list will be to bring my own coupe out here to drive the Targa!!

    OK, Stan, let's do that. Get our cars out there and do the Targa!

    Does Chris's car have city lights?

    Andrew, you had to ask? Where do you think I get most of my inspiration!

    Really great video!
    That must have taken a lot of time and work to produce.
