2022 Solvang Roadster Show

Post by Randalla »

This years show in Solvang, CA was really a nice event. 102 Datsun vehicles showed up, with about 75 of them being Roadsters. We trailered our car over (thank you Patrick) and met up with several friends. This show, and subsequently touring Paso Robles wine country in the Roadster, had been on Lisa's and my bucket list since the car was finished. We logged probably 300-400 miles on the little car with nary an problem. We were fortunate to take third place in our class, which was a bonus,

75 Roadsters in one place. That had to be a blast. No small accomplishment taking home some hardware in that group either. Congrats. Really makes me miss my SRL.

Gregg, couldn't agree more. The central coast area is beautiful and not as crowded as a lot of CA. We had an amazing drive with a couple of Z guys Saturday afternoon from Solvang to Santa Maria, via all the back roads through vineyards and strawberry fields.
