The tour opened with a banquet on Sunday, then on Monday we drove up the coast towards Carlsbad
Before we set out each car had a picture taken, that's Heather & I in the 1914 Touring
You may see some MTFCA folks among the picture takers...

Thanks for sharing. Please post more of the rest of the tour when you get a chance. I spotted a
few familiar faces including some lovely Texan folk, Bill & Pat Sherril.
A few more pictures, on Wednesday we went downtown to visit the Midway. We managed to park as a group and then wander around the aircraft carrier until early afternoon. Then we came back to the hotel thru Balboa Park.
We assembled as a group at the Midway.
The T's parked as a group, about 45 cars in all.
ON Thursday we started with the San Diego Mission, more to follow.
The lower bells weigh around 1000 pounds, what an effort for the early 1800's.
We were the last to leave the mission.
Here are some more taken today.

I have flashbacks of my visit last year to the US seeing some of the names and cars! I had a wonderful time meeting you all and was privileged to go on a run with a some of you hopping from T to the other. All thanks to this forum and like-minded people! Enjoy the tour and thanks for posting the pictures.

Great photos! Every year people post pictures of these wonderful events and I wish so hard I could attend. And I was able too attend the MTFCI tour in Rochester MN a couple years back. It was an experience I will never forget. I remember some extremely warm (100 degrees) days and the value of a bottle of water. Keep having fun y'all!
Did Chris Brancaccio loose the brass lens cover off his side light??
No Ross, came off in my hand when I was polishing it, will need your help to fix it when I get home.
Thank you Tony and Norm for the pictures. It was a great week!
Thank you Bob for all the standing out in the sun distributing cold water, and for the other kindnesses you and Marilyn did to make the tour a success.
How many cars were on the tour? Look's like it was a good time. Thanks for posting pictures.

Great pictures. Too bad I'm so far away, I'd have gone on the tour, and then STAYED there! Seeing those pictures brought back memories of a past visit to California, I sure hated to leave. How anyone can not love that place, the beauty, the weather, (except for the current drought!), is beyond me.
A few more pictures from the Friday run over the bay bridge to Coronado then down to Chula Vista harbor. The last pictures are of the final banquet and my Grandson being presented with an award by the Arizona Club for being the winning navigator in the last two events, with different drivers....

Good tour, different than the normal open road runs, all this was in the city. I doubt this could be done in most towns, however we consider San Diego as America Finest City...
Thanks for the pictures guys! The only time that we were in San Diego was in '08 when my youngest son graduated Marine Corps boot camp. We soon became very much attracted to the area. I wish that I had known of the T'ers there back then. We had a great time touring the area, but missed a lot because we didn't have time to see much. Dave
Tim, born and raised in California I'd say it's a great place to visit, but...

It was a great tour! Having only recently joined the San Diego Club, this was my first major tour. I did realize what a huge effort was made, with months of meetings and planning, to put together and pull off such a successful and enjoyable event. I have certainly been welcomed into this club and thank all of you responsible for that and this beautiful tour: Kirt and Drea, Tony and Heather, Greg and Cathy, Chuck, Norm and Dolores, Janna, Jerry and Ana y hermana, Mac, Judy and John, Bob and Marilyn, Anne, Carolyn, John, Bob, Eric and Mike. I am sure I've missed someone else here and for that I am sorry. I know that there were many more contributors and donors. I had a most enjoyable time! Thanks!'
