A big thanks to Kevin and Deborah Sheehan for organizing and leading this excellent Santa Cruz backroads exploration drive. SFBA section is well-known and famous for our First Sunday Drives among the car clubs in the Bay Area. The Ponitac Solistices Club heard about us and came all the way from Sacramento, and joined us for this leisurely drive in the beautiful woods of Santa Cruz.

There was a very interesting conversation with one of our members at the gathering place, and the member, Mike Eppeson says, "I love my 1961 Mercedes Benz that my stepfather bought new, and I traded for in 1970; but, there is a problem it’s a little too old to take on trips much North of my Santa Cruz home. I was complaining to my girlfriend Jeanne that this John Goode guy has all these great trips that are North of San Francisco and the 190 just doesn’t want to go that far.  Jeanne had the answer, “just buy a new one”. So, John, just because of you, I bought a 2019 S560 Cabriolet that allows Jeanne and me to join you."
