A surprising turnout for our organised group drive saw more than 20 cars with decent variety from an 80s Corolla GT-S to a 360 Challenge Stradale. Way too many 991 Porsches, but that’s really a testament to how good they are.

I drove behind a relatively large but hot-looking AMG GT S for most of the time.

We started at Alice’s Restaurant, a popular car club gathering spot in the mountains with its own gas station, and went out to the coast at Pescadero. Roads were decent with just a bit of continuing runoff from California’s unusually wet winter.
