I'm bringing my camera. If there's a computer we can download them.
Then upload them.
So members can download them.

I hope everyone has a trouble free journey to Cambria and I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the gathering!

Still #bumbedout I had to bail this year.

Hokiesmokes we are having a great time.

When I get home I'll modify some of my pictures or put them online for you to look over. The weather is postcard perfect, the attendees are great and exchanging ideas. Impromptu swap meet.

Already talking about next year.

Hi All,

Well, crap. I tried every which way to get up to Cambria with you this weekend. But between mechanical/safety problems with the Alpine and personal difficulties, it's just not to be this year.

I'm doubly sad after seeing these photos. Looks just wonderful. There is no way I'm gonna miss the next one.

Regrets,

Rob D.

[quote=Toyanvil;174565]Having a great time.

Can you identify the owners of each Sunbeam?

I recognized the "Beautiful White One" But none of the others specifically.

Who's Green one and what wheel ? They look like what I have on my "67 Commodore Blue.

Well wrapping things up now. Awards presented.

Rich Gordon got the longest distance driven with 273
Members choice went to John Amoroso aka Toyanvil
The President's award normally goes to the guy with the most mechanical issues but soldiers on regardless, but since no one had failures it came down to a mental coin flip. I picked the car with the most edge wear on their tires although we could have recognized all of the cars. Ash Friedman flogs his car.

Door prizes drawn for.

Watch the site for next year's event guys. You members in the other areas remember the Club can help defray some of the costs to put on an Invasion. Make a new friend or friends. See how other owners solve problems. Have fun. Get involved.

The Club owes Bing and Jim Jordan a round of digital applause for doing an outstanding job of organizing and managing the event. Thanks for your hospitality guys.

Hey all, Thanks for the great company, and fun drives.
Becky and I made it home safely in the 1965 series VI. Dk Blue.
She of course followed in the F-150 with A/C !
94 deg. in Paso Robles yesterday, but wine festival was fun.

Thanks again,
Kevin

This was a great trip. Everything I imagined it to be. The friends we all made, the parts corrall, and I'll tell you, you-all missed out on a truckload of parts that were brought, especially by Kevin Rodgers.

We had amazing weather, and our drives were great. I do have to admit, the Santa Rosa Creek road was a challenge, everyone was in 1st and 2nd gear and I know I for one was watching my temp gauge right to the top. But we all made it, and continued our drive. Thanks for that route Bing.

The morning drive out to San Simeon Pier made for some great photo opps, which I know will be posted here and on our Facebook.
The tech sessions and the information that was shared between all was worth every bit of the time.

Thanks John Amaroso for the valve adjustment lesson, I know my car came away much quieter and with a bit more performance.

And thank you Nick Emmanouili for the tech session on the Boot conversion to the gas struts. It's a pleasure to open and close my boot now.

Thanks go out to Bing for his hosting the wine and beer get together Friday evening. It definitely brought everyone together a bit quicker. (No, nobody got over indulgent in the bottle, very cool.)

Thanks to everyone that attended for making my trip so memorable. I know I'm going to be begging for photos to be sent to me.

Looking forward to next year already.
