Cruisin' with local sports car club part deux

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day - the kind of summer day that just begs for top down cruising, so off I went again with the same club as last time. But on a more extensive trip as we headed out early in the am to drive south on a two lane coastal highway towards a small community named Fermeuse (http://www.lighthousepicnics.ca/ ) , for lunch and a tour of the local area. Had the usual mixture of cars again; Miatas, Corvette, Z3, Mustang, British roadsters, even an old Lotus Super 7! All in all, a great day, a good lunch, and lots of warm sunny top down driving.

Of course, some pics

Thanks again everyone - there are so many ways to enjoy this car, and so many things it does well, it's hard to stay out of the damn thing!

In the second to last photo, is that a Maserati pretending to be a Chrysler?

That car is the product of Lee Iacocca's short time love affair with (then independant and cash-strapped) Maserati back when he ran Chryco - "Chrysler TC by Maserati". A sort of love child between a Maserati Biturbo and Chrysler LeBaron.

It's a different bird for sure, I'd heard of them before but this is the first time I'd seen one.

I don't know if I'd want to be tracking down 20+ year old Maserati parts either - but this owner certainly had his kept in great shape.

Thanks as well, but I gotta throw this out there - the "best" car is the one you own and drive and enjoy yourself , no matter the make or model. And with this group, they are all doing just that - drive them and enjoy them in a bunch along with other car nuts, no matter their stripe.
