Re: Socal vr4 meet!

I'm in. Perhaps we can meet up and have a canyon drive and then head to have some breakfast? We could also BBQ.
What did you all have in mind? I can't do weekend of the 28th.

Great idea there on the drive/eat.
Schedule conflict for me. Future in-laws are coming out to visit us that weekend.

How about the 12th or the 19th? Sundays are better as there is no traffic. I would also suggest trying to meet there by 7:00AM.

I'd do the 26th, but I would assume most people will be busy with family and Thanksgiving.

Who's available for a meet following turkey day on Sunday, the 26th?

Re: Socal vr4 meet!

OK, let's plan on the 26th.

Ideas for the meet? What road for the canyon drive, and where you all want to grab food at?

One idea could be a drive on Hwy 74 (AKA Ortega) and either get breakfast or lunch before/after at the Lookout Roadhouse. Ortega runs East/West connecting the I 15 and I 5, from Lake Elsinore to San Juan Capistrano, so depending on whether everyone wants to eat before or after the drive would determine which side we start from. The restaurant opens up at 8am on Sundays.

My suggestion would be meet up in San Juan Capistrano at 7am to grab coffee and bullshit. Then, around 8am, punch out to hit the twisties, following up with brunch at the Road House whenever the group gets there. For the guys who have to go back to the 5 to get home, bonus, because you can just do the road backwards

The road is really nice. It has good sweepers, clean pavement, and plenty of twisties. Traffic shouldn't be too bad early on a Sunday morning, and there are plenty of pull-offs if we want to stop to let traffic pass, or take pics.

I've been up and down Ortega a million times (I've never eaten at the Lookout Roadhouse, though), so I'm definitely open to other roads and food plans. Hoping to hear your guys' suggestions.

26th sounds good. I would vote for breakfast/coffee after the drive. We could do Ortega this time and then do GMR the next time.

Who: SoCal Galant VR-4 owners
What: Meet, cruise and bunch
When: November 26th, 7AM
Where: Starbucks @ 32022 Camino Capistrano B, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675
Why: Meet, greet, and drive some twisties

On November 26th we will meet at Starbucks in San Juan Capistrano at 7AM (32022 Camino Capistrano B, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675). Everyone can grab coffee there and do a quick meet and greet before we cruise up into the mountains.

At 8AM we will depart Starbucks, and drive East on Hwy 74 (AKA Ortega Hwy), ending at The Lookout Roadhouse (32107 Ortega Hwy, Lake Elsinore, CA 92530) where the group can grab brunch. Tentatively, I'd say we will be at the Road House around 9AM for guys who just want to meet us there: click

The road should be really nice. It has good sweepers, clean pavement, and plenty of twisties. Traffic shouldn't be too bad early on a Sunday morning, and there are plenty of pull-offs if we want to stop to let traffic pass, or take pictures of cars/scenery.

This meet is tailored toward bringing the SoCal Galant VR-4 crowd together, but ALL makes/models/car guys & gals are welcomed.

Feel free to chime in here in this thread if you can make it, or on FB. Link to the FB post is here: click

Re: Socal vr4 meet!

thanks for organizing this, Brett.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there.

Please don't be late! Traffic gets much worse the later you get out there. When I go drive it, i like to get on the road before 7. I realize we are not doing Togue Challenge here, but it does make it more enjoyable when your not going 30 behind Aunt Edna's 1987 Buick for 40 miles.

Re: Socal vr4 meet!

It was awesome meeting up with the SoCal Galant crew! It was really good to see some old friends, and meet some new ones.

We had a total of 3 VR-4s show. Mine, Jeremy's 734/2000 (the sweet AMG car), and Martin's 802/1000. David showed in his super clean Evo 8, as well as Eric and Anthony who own 1607/2000 and 1877/2000 (respectively). Here's a few shots at the meetup spot before the canyon drive:









A panorama, and a few more shots at the top of the canyon:











Annnnnnd then I got a little overzealous on the way back down and popped the headgasket. HUGE thanks to David and Anthony who stuck around until the tow truck got there. I owe David big for the free tow and ride home. On days like these, I'm just really grateful to be part of a small car community made of straight up legit guys.







Coolant in cylinder 2, but whateves...Needed an excuse to tear the car apart and install the qm twin anyways. Blown head gasket or not, today was awesome. Nothing better than driving the canyons, eating bacon, and spending the better part of the day hanging out with car guys! I've got some video of the canyon drive I'll post later on.

Looking forward to the next iteration for sure. I appreciate everyone coming out!

Brett your pictures aren't showing. Nice video.
It was great meeting everyone, thank you for coming and putting this together guys.
The drive through that road was awesome and the view at the Lookout.
We definitely need to do this again, maybe a bigger meet inviting members from neighbor state.
I took a few pics.

No, it was a Mitsubishi OEM gasket.

I still need to test the E85 in my tank. I have a suspicion the ethanol content is a bit low, and I got some knock. Can't confirm since I wasn't watching the dash or logging, but I was pushing the car harder than I should have been given the circumstances. I needed to install my twin disk and some other parts anyways, so I guess instead of putting it off forever, now I have a reason to get it done.

Great meeting everyone and chowing down on some breakfast! My favorite part was looking in the rearview and seeing a line of white gvr4s. Haha, that is a rare sight indeed.

Thanks for the pics guys. Looking forward to the next one.
