Ortega Highway in South OC is a good road, SD Mustang club scheduled to meet up there on May 23rd. Even better is Palomar Mountain; followed a couple of Porsche’s up there early one morning. Google it, great road.

Back about ten years ago went up there with my Honda S2000 and when I was leaving the parking lot form Mothers kitchen A CHP actually stopped on the hiway and motioned me to go in front of him. Stupid me I did and as soon as I did he turned his lights and pulled me over for having tinted tail lights and wanted to search my car for illegal mods. I complied and let him look under the hood and under the car. he even measured my thread depth on all four tires. He told me that people like me were unwelcome on his highway. I asked him what were people like me and he stated Street racers. I asked him why did he think I was a street racer and he stated that I had "A" pillar gages on my car and that was a sign of a street racer. I told him that I told him That I have been putting gages on my "A" pillar long before his daddy put his hands down his moma's pants. He looked at me and stated that he was a professional and everyone with gages like that were street racers. I did indeed get real smart with him and stated that I too was a professional and that everyone that wore glasses like his were ass holes. He really got mad and told me that he could have my car impounded and crushed. I asked him to contacted his supervisor and showed him that I was recording it all. He stopped immediately handed me the ticket and I told him that I will see him in court. He never showed. But I did ask the judge to listen to the recording. He did and told me thank you. Oh for the record I have never and never will street race. I have always been a track whore. He was 100% wrong. and as far as "A" pillar gages. I have had mine there sense the mid 70's and my dad (also a prof. racer) has his there as well. Yep back befroe it was cool to do so.

Both those roads are great but filled with motorcycles usually. There are some back roads free of traffic usually near Ramona.

Any cruise would be fun!

I had a fully turbo honda way back in the day and everything was illegal and I got pulled over for not having a front plate. The thing that got me sent to the smog ref was the stupid red msd ignition box. Which was the ONLY thing that had a carb number......
Everything else was stealth installed lol.

Hey guys
I too am in the San Diego area. About 20 years ago we used to run or bikes through the canyons at midnight. Talk about being crazy...lol.

Theres tons of canyons here in SD that go east into the mountains about 4 thousand feet above sea level, and some the go past the Native American Reserve and casino.

just picked my car up from the shop, so I’m down for a cruise. It’s been sun and dry all week and supposed to get hot this weekend

Been working up at Mt Wilson all week and the May Grey / June Gloom is in full effect.

Socked in pretty much to Angeles Forest then starts to clear up.

Alright y’all, let’s put a day on the calendar!

Hi, Rich,
Just stumbled onto your thread today, 3/16/ 2022. Was on Angeles Crest in my then new Race Red Mustang GT in June 2013, with a group from the LA area. It was a blast from the past; perfectly clear weather all the way across to the 15. Still waiting on a '22 Mach 1; Maybe we can hook up and do it again! I'll keep an eye on the forum. Good luck and have fun!
