Greetings.

We have our 1970 Plus 2S at Monterey this week (only till Thursday, as the rest of the week is just too expensive for poor little me!!). Staying in Seaside, just north of town.

If anyone has their car here, I would enjoy meeting up, snapping some pix of the cars together, et cetera :)

Won’t be there this year. Off to see a new member of the family in NYC.

I’m racing my Crossle Formula Ford at Laguna Seca. We practice Thursday afternoon. Our paddock is east of the cafe in the first row. White #81 Zazrivy on the side.

Does anyone have a pdf of the Giant Killer ad? I would like a copy for my garage.

Wayne is facing us, with sunglasses, but could it be our own 1owner69elan with his back to us?

Nope, not me in the picture with Wayne Carini at Pebble Beach.

But, this is me at the Monterey Revival at Laguna Seca, a couple of days earlier:

The "Giant Killer" was in fact Dave Vegher's SCCA Championship car, in various liveries and guises.

Hi Randy,
I think it was Tuesday morning when I spotted you heading south on Hwy 1 near Pescadero as I was going northbound to work. Quickly rolled down the window to capture the sounds of the TC. I too won’t be attending this year. Enjoy!

Presumably the poster was created by the current owner: Victor Avila. But I really don’t know.

Anyway to contact him?

I see that Victor Avila, and the 26r, are entered in the Monterey Reunion races at Laguna Seca this weekend. Maybe someone on the forum who is attending can drop by his pit and make contact.

I don't know Victor.

1963S1 . . .

Greetings! Tuesday morning we were running south on the #1 from Seaside to Carmel in order to get early parking to see the Carmel Concours. Unless I'm mistaken, that's not where Pescadaro is. Perhaps you meant Monday morning?

Busy week... yes Monday morning, on Hwy 1 around Pescadero which about 75 miles north of Seaside. Great sight to see the Plus 2.
