My 14 T spends most of her time hiding in the hills. I heard that some "City Slickers" would be in the area so I took the 14 out to meet them. She just didn't know how to conduct herself among the Rajo-headed, A-crank equipped self-starting wire wheeled city counterparts!
She felt so under-optioned that I had to grab the crank and wind it up just to start. The second time we saw them she got so embarrassed that she stalled when I asked her to back up.
The Model T Ford Club of Southern Calif was in the area over the weekend and one of their stops was a mile from the house at a Superfund Clean-up Site. Since I am 4th generation in the area I added a little "color" and recent history to the talk about the geology of the area and the goals of the site clean-up.
I met a great group of people that know how to enjoy themselves and show off their cars. Very much a an outing I will remember, even if I can't remember names.

Like Ken Kopsky said, "Without pics, it never really happened." . . ;o)

The pics are in my camera on a card. Where do I send the card? My picture skills went away when my Apple passed on due to old age.

Yea Sure, Bill. I didn't see any Model T's on Vineyard drive in front of Pollilo Winy on Sunday! Not a red or blue touring nor a white speedster... nope, didn't happen!

You can take your card to the drugstore to have them developed.

I can't say that I've ever wanted to visit a Super Fund site before but the visit and talk was interesting. Born and raised in SLO county and never knew there were mercury mines there. So, is the wine we bought tainted with mercury?

Taking the route from Cayucos to Cambria via the Santa Rosa Creek road sure loosened up all the bolt hardware and seriously tested the Rocky Mountain brakes - wife said she'd never go on that road again.

Next time we'll have to stay longer ...

Had you continued on the dirt road past the mines you would would have arrived at the junction of Santa Rosa Rd.
The wine is NOT tainted, its flavored :-) Actually there are no vineyards downstream from the mines that I am aware of.
I was surprised that I was able to keep up with the "city gals" as well as I did. Only one little hill tripped me up as I had to slow down for the two curves before the climb.
