CC Meet-Up: Details for Destination LA


As promised, here are the details for Tomorrow’s CC Meet Up:

To review, our destination is an early morning car show held the first Saturday of every month on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It’s located in the parking lot of the Peninsula Center, near the intersection of Hawthorne Boulevard and Silver Spur Road, and runs from 7:30 to 9:00 AM.

Here’s a link with directions to the Center:

If you’d prefer to use geo tracking, here are the  global coordinates: 33° 46′ 31.96″, -118° 22′ 33.33″

When I announced this event on Sunday, a number of posters felt that Palos Verdes is a bit far from the nearest freeway. While there’s never one perfect location, every location has it’s own unique advantages. In this case, being far from a freeway equals no traffic and spectacular views. After the event, attendees can head south on Hawthorne Boulevard to its terminus on the Pacific Ocean, and then cruise southeast towards San Pedro and Long Beach, or northwest towards the beach cities on Santa Monica Bay.Black-shirt

The event lacks a hospitality area or food court to act as a rendevous spot, but I’ll be there bright and early in my black “Wheatridge Speed Shop” shirt (modeled above, complete with an image of the backside artwork). It’s a gift from my good buddy Rhino, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear it for a while. Look for this shirt, and I’ll act as the rendevous point.

Sunday’s comments also mentioned that 7:30 AM seems really early, but this also works to our advantage- At that time of day, there’s nothing else to do!

So I hope to see a few hardy souls tomorrow, and for those who prefer to sleep in, look for other LA Meet-Ups in the future, held a bit later in the day.

See you soon,
