garage might have like a 20 minute grace period.
I didn't thought about that one either :headscrat

A bit of good news (I guess)... I'm 86; out of my own house tomorrow :grumble: ...well, apparently its the Mrs turn to host their monthly facial session. I'd have some free time and what better way to spend it on :mhihi: ...yes sir, I'm going to make that pre-trial run for our up coming meet :bigok:

btw; das, can you confirm... last image seems like an industrial park?!? ehh, I might beat you to it tomorrow :lol:

Gabe you sick M*$#*^#&* You have bad little thoughts little man.

Santa Monica Place has a parking structure right after it. Thats the one Id like to park in....

I believe parking is free before 5 p.m. (but I dont know now cuz the mall is closed for remodeling)

If youre taking the 10 west, you have to take the 4th/5th Street exit but exit on 5th and stay on your left lane.

Make a left on Colorado Ave and stay on your right lane.

The mall is on the corner of 4th St on your right side. Right after the mall there is an entrance for the structure. Go in there and climb all the way to the top...
The entrance for the structure is where the "C" for Colorado Ave begins right next to San.Mon. Plc.
Heres a map I wish I can save it and draw on it.

Ferj: Count Barry and myself in :thumbsup:

i can't picture that parking lot on thousand oaks blvd in my head right now. however there are plenty of spots we can park within a few miles of there.. once in that area i can lead the group to just about any resteraunt we choose. i also know of a parking structure that the local honda dealershit rents half the roof of to store extra cars.

oh and i got my new windshield today, as well as did some creative customizing to put in a new shift knob.. think i can get my steering wheel wrapped by the 6th?

Jonathan, is the parking structure off Colorado inter-connects with the one off Broadway?!? from the aerial views, they are not.

If it makes it easier for everybody then let's deviate from the original plan... what do ya'll think :squint:

i know the intersection. i just can't think of what businesses may be in there.
i may go for a drive tomorrow and i'll keep an eye out for lots in that area that could be useable..

possible detour in the canyons and end up more towards westlake than agoura.. its alot prettier there. ahha also a new acura dealership just opening in westlake.. if i get out that way i'll see if they wanna throw any fun stuff. or support our way.? who knows anything is possible

I may show up but I won't be able to stay the whole time. btw, I scraped my bumper pretty bad, twice. Anyone know an excellent body shop that can clean up my pearl white coupe for less than an arm and a leg? Perhaps only a promised child?
I have a white coupe as well. I had it touched up recently plus some minor repairs by a friend's shop in Fullerton. Show up at the meet and we can discuss it.

Mother itcher, my alarm clock (AKA; the Mrs) woke me up @1pm :nutkick: ...on top of that, my 19 y/o son took the car for his volunteer work at our local fire station :no:

I guess I got meself to blame... stayed out very late lastnight for some sessions of Texas Hold 'Em in Oceanside at "Ocean's Eleven Casino" and gots bad beat hands all night long :bigcry:

I'll just have to do the trial run early Sunday morning :hide:

To this day, I'm STILL not really sure why the Mrs canceled our guided tour/trip to Europe :headscrat ...she said something like acquiring three different visas?!? :dunno: ...tightwad asian woman :hide:

Venice Italy would have been the "end" point of our tour... ciao Sherm and bring back lots of pictures :D

haven't i been saying mullhullond for weeks and weeks now? i kinda figure that once we enter the canyons.. anyone who just wants to cruise kanan can do so. and anyone who wants to follow me on the more.... we'll say interesting roads. is welcome to come my way. i won't be hauling ass. or even racing. but i tend to get a bit spirited in those hills.. and i'm sure i'll be spending my time envying the 5speed and 6speed guys.

either way.. the conejo valley ( thousand oaks westlake agoura newbury park etc) isn't a huge area. so we can just figure out a RE meeting point. and go from there.. whaaaatever works for everyone.

YES you have das and you will the appointed lead CAR once we get up there :thumbsup: ...I can tell you though, all them twisties run; from previous NorCal meets I've attended, if the lead car gets aggressive every body will follow :giggle: ...I remember going 30 on a 15 mph curve :yes: ...amazingly, we all made it safely: AND WE'VE GOT IT ALL IN VIDEO!

Speaking of video; Tyson, you still have your sticky pod?!? please do bring it with you :)
