This years Rt 66 will begin in Temecula, CA then move on to Idyllwild, CA for the next 2 days. Our Temecula Motel will be in Old Town Temecula. If your mate, or yourself want to do some shopping at one of the many unique shops, knock down a few Rita's, take in a play or dine in; you'll be within walking distance of the Motel. And there is ample parking for tow rigs. We will relocate to Idyllwild on Friday and depart Sunday.
Fridays drive will include some of the "Dawn Patrols" best roads. The plan is to begin the first leg before breakfast. Most of this run is where the 4 cylinder's dominate. I promise you'll like it. This leg is about an hour long at which point we will stop at Harrah's for breakfast. I'm working on getting us parked in a display area while we eat. More on that later. After breakfast we will continue up the mountain to the Palomar Observatory. Once there we can stretch our legs and take in the Observatory. From there we will head over to Idyllwild. Many of you will remember the quaint village from Rt 66 2015. Depending upon the time of day we may or may not eat there. We'll play that by ear.
After talking to John it was decided that anything in the LA area was a cluster sheeplove.gif waiting to happen. It would be fine for an individual but 30+ 40 yo cars, attempting to stay together, be it in LA traffic or parking just wasn't feasible. I don't even want to think of what would happen if someone stalled or broke down. Rooms will be held for us until Jan 2 and released to the public after that. That being said, here is the new itinerary and the new dates. *NOTE* JAN 2 is the DEADLINE for IDYLLWILD MOTEL RESERVATIONS.
Please find Banquet Restaurant info on page 9 post #161

I lived and worked right there.. That was always the shady part of 4th st, so that's why I questioned it. South side of the 10 on Archibald should still be a bit on the cheap side and just a tad better hotels. You might still run in to a call girl though... Some of you might not mind that laugh.gif

Make sure your brakes and clutch are up to par. This run is gonna be a lot of stop and go. unsure.gif

Posted by: Chris914n6 Oct 12 2016, 05:39 PM

I was going to wait to to see how it pans out but I'm kinda idea.gif about the 10 freeway to the pier on a Sat also. Sunday afternoon was pretty packed on my way back from WCR15. Maybe a loop around Angels Crest instead?
No worries, plenty of time for the locals to chime in.

What weekend is the Pomona swap meet?

Posted by: 914_teener Oct 12 2016, 09:24 PM

Hey Kent,

Thanks for doing this.

GMR is closed indefinitely due to the fires, so a Baldy run would be up and back the same road from Upland.

Angels Crest loop is a great drive up the backside and down the front. Plenty of stops and cool places in Pasadena and other cities on the way back...most on R66. There are even a few places on the old R66 with the emblem painted on the old Route 66...Cleghorn Canyon through the pass. It also burned just a little while ago but stopped short of Wrightwood. Fun and scenic drive and the road is open. I can propose alternates if God willing there is snow up high in April that would close the backside route up through Angeles Crest.

I'll PM for alternate Hotels and options if you like.

Rob

I agree, 10 fwy to SM pier on any day is going to be a parking lot. You would have to start the run there by 8am to beat weekend traffic if your lucky. AC hwy from Glendale to Wrightwood is awesome but depending on winter weather it's a crap shoot on if it's going to be open due to past storm road repair.

How about a run to the Queen Mary...... Lots of freeway choices and it's only 10 bucks for parking " lots of room " everyone can check out the boat as it's free to board and walk around.

Thanks Rob, Please do PM me. I told John I didn't know that area and it shows. We are not obligated to Motel 6. If you know of a place you would recommend, LMK. You can see how the prices escalate as we depart the Temecula area. Same goes for the drive. I'm up for any improved or necessary changes. Mountain drives will always be subject to weather conditions and we can adjust if required. There are plenty of driving options. We are also in need of suggestions for a spot to hold the Awards Banquet Saturday night. Hopefully it is next to the agreed upon Motel so we can avoid drinking and driving. California is Hell on Drunk Driving and for a good reason. Thx, Kent beerchug.gif

I'm totally up for an early departure; Dawn Patrol style driving.gif . I still get up early to make runs so I can have the roads to myself. So the Dawn Patrol still exists, it's just down to one active member. lol-2.gif The preferred departure time for Rt 66 runs has always been 9:14 but I would strongly suggest that time be changed to 9:14 CST or plan on being in knee deep traffic. I think starting early at the Santa Monica pier (or any alternate Rt 66 place) would be wise if not advisable. From what I know of that area I would think we'd need to be there no later than 6:30. Given the amount of drinking that goes on the nite before that may not work. shades.gif Please PM me with your suggestions. Thx, Kent beerchug.gif

Posted by: Toast Oct 13 2016, 02:46 PM

The traffic and signal lights are also really bad in the Ontario and LA area. You should probably make a printable schedule with designated photo and other stops. Because the group will definitely get split up. And as always anywhere in SoCal there will be parking issues. So try to plan for that in advance. I don't know if you can reserve parking areas or not.

Posted by: phatnine11 Oct 13 2016, 05:41 PM

Kent,
The Ontario location is about 4 miles from my house, Justin is right about the area. I'll keep an eye out for another location, maybe south of the 10, down Vineyard Ave. Also, the dates 04/6 to the 9th, usually the Festival of Speed is on that weekend (first weekend in April). I'll check to see if anything has been put on the PCA calendar.

Great. Thx for the support folks. Lets get some ideas posted and bounce them off the wall. Maybe we can give Blue6 $100 to watch the cars at night with the promise that he can shoot anyone messing with a teener. happy11.gif He's been retired for awhile now and I'm sure he has an itchy trigger finger. lol-2.gif Cesar, thx for the info on Festival of Speed but it doesn't really matter. As long as I've been here there is always another event happening during one of ours. Some will go and others will attend Rt 66. It might be a blessing in disguise as I suspect a bigger than usual attendance since we will be in SoCal.

An option to the pier.

Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Posted by: Heeltoe914 Nov 18 2016, 05:13 PM

Thanks so much for putting this together, and most of all thanks for allowing input.
I would be happy to look into Hotels closer to the north side of the LA area. I feel I can get good rates that will kill allot of that freeway time. I will also be happy to work with you on routes to get us around traffic. This is what I do everyday as an estimator I drive allot.
The Peterson is a great museum for visitors with its 90 million Dollar resent renovation, its something to think about doing, two hours is all you need.
Ontario to los Angeles is a bad drive. If you like we can consider closer to Glendale, Pasadena, or the surrounding areas, as long as I you/we get a rate you like for this event. We can do the Pier, The Peterson, Newcombs Ranch a popular Car & biker hot spot on the crest. I am hear if you need assitants..

Posted by: 914_teener Nov 18 2016, 08:12 PM

Leamon...

I was thinking the same....maybe Pasadena area with a loop drive to Newcombs....back side R66 back to Pasadena or the other way.

I thought maybe I.d PM Kent with an possible itin after Temecula.

Posted by: 76-914 Nov 18 2016, 08:52 PM

We're heading in a different direction; just as cool. I've been working on it for a few weeks after talking with John. Didn't want to post anything until I have all the wrinkles worked out. I should be able to update everyone by Monday. beerchug.gif

Anything west of the 605 will be on the pricey side. Traffic on the 210 even on the weekends is killer. A drive through Angeles Crest then the 14 to Devil's Punchbowl might be a nice run. We can find somewhere to eat in Pearblossom. Maybe Glendale or Eagle Rock would be a better place for hotel/motel rooms?
Just my 2 cents!

Let's just say I have a whole new respect for John and his previous accomplishments. shades.gif Idyllwild is the Hub for several damned nice roads. The first day, after departing Temecula, we will make a run up Mt Palomar. We should arrive at the observatory close to noon.Stealing an idea from RRC 2012 I'm thinking about taking some sack lunches. Turkey for some, ham for others, w/a bag of chips.

Rooms booked. Mention you're with the 914 group at the beginning of the the process. slap.gif It will speed things up a bit. If folks are checking the motel website's calendar for room availability, don't be alarmed by the red XXs. Kent has them set aside for us.

3 weeks left to reserve your room in Idyllwild. Once these rooms are released to the public they will go like Hot Cakes and the next nearest accommodations are about 60 miles away. More than 3 months left to reserve your room in Temecula. beerchug.gif

Posted by: VegasRacer Dec 23 2016, 10:11 AM

Book your rooms in Idyllwild NOW. They are only being held until Jan 2.
The rooms will go on the open market after that and are sure to sell out.

Posted by: forrestkhaag Dec 26 2016, 08:09 PM

And I will be happy to offer a ride to Larmo if he has to drive his lifted man-sized toyoto in lieu of his bitchin 914 ....

This ride-offer assumes Larmo can handle the chance of another four wheel lock up at speed - headed for certain disaster while blowing a red light in Flagstaff on a downtown intersection icy road / The only good news is that I miraculously released the brake pedal at the last nano-second to regain four wheel traction to whip left... then hard right..... in a whipsaw maneuver to relock the wheels to the pavement - and then to blaze a shining trail thru the intersection and on to the parking lot for the ubiquitous bucolic 914 review.... during the terrifying hair raising slip-slide event - and locked hopelessly in the passenger seat,

Larmo never made a sound.......

He can ride or drive my car anytime.

Maybe that isn't in the cards/........... av-943.gif

A drive thru the area e.g. mountains, lunch, more driving, diner at one of 2 restaurants. (I haven't decided which one yet but both have fantastic YELP reviews and have outdoor seating & live music.) then the awards banquet. Mark of 914rubber has graciously offered to supply some prizes. If someone wants to take on contacting the other vendors for prizes speak up. I'll gladly delegate that chore. biggrin.gif

I drove up the mountain this AM to check out the restaurant for our Saturday Nite Banquet. Well, that and to run a test drive. And both reasons had good results. At this point I've apparently exorcized my fuel demon and secured a restaurant. Met the mgr Michael and we will be working on $$$ the next couple of weeks. It's 4.5 stars on Yelp and the Mgr was accommodating. They have indoor and outdoor heated seating. Ton's of Wines and Beers to choose from. They even have Vegetarian items in case that grumpy old Elyut shows up. I saved the best for last.................it's a 1/2 block from our Motel. piratenanner.gif Some of us may stumble that 1/2 block back to the Motel but so be it. drunk.gif I will need a head count from those attending the Banquet in the next week or two.

I was keeping it on the down low, and hoping to be kinda a surprise guest.

but the vacation days and 5 nights lodging (by the time I get there) just isn't going to fit into my budget and schedule this summer with everything else I have going on.

so unfortunately I'm dropping out
I do have a room reserved for the 2 nights at idyllwild
I intend to call the hotel in a day or two and cancel that out of courtesy. I don't know if they still have rooms yet, or are sold out
does anyone want to take over my reservation?

You can prob fly RT for $200ish to ontario. That's not even gas and lodging for a long day 1. You'll there in under 3 hrs. Arrive at 10 on thurs, 3 nights then home on Sunday by dinner time. Easy peasy. Affordable.

Posted by: forrestkhaag Mar 13 2017, 06:42 PM

I will make this drive,... maybe...

No turning back / I just ground off the motor mounts for the type 4 bars / Oil system make-up is this and next week.

The 6 will have sex with the 71 body after months of anticipation in two weeks if all goes well. Just wait Honey.... It will be worth it....

Rt66 is still on the radar and if it starts, runs, and the break-in goes ok as to seating rings, I will drive it balls out to our place in AZ as a summer test of the oil cooling system then join the motley crew in Idyllwild... Lots of moving parts now. Most of them... controllable with enough cash thrown at the solution...

And Kent: I am fixin to be done with you smokin my type 4 and all the rest of them on the open road / and I don't care about snapped axles or sheared CV bolts. Bring that problem on.

Sidebar: After the complexities of building a 911 carbed and cam-ed motor and cobbling together a respectable conversion, I am going back to what I know and can do in my sleep...

I am buying acreage in Scottsdale for another outland home project.

Heck. The outcome is a known quantity of fantastic views, weather, and security - unlike Cali now. The profit is guaranteed. And the sleepless nights are not based on BS parts scores in a back alley or swap meet trinkets secured FOR CASH LARMO somewhere.

So tomorrow its back to the engine bay and engine mount welding.

oops... this ramble should be in WDuuuuuuDTY914T section...

^^ Correction. I actually booked my own room in Idyllwild. We were going to split the Motel6, but that's not that pricey so don't worry about me biggrin.gif

I'll have the engine removed this weekend hopefully but I may not have it fully fixed in time to bring it. :-/

Hey Kent: Thanks for all of your hard work to bring this drive and reunion-meeting of Teeners to fruition..

I remain silent on participation until my 914 isn't. Isn't silent that is...

I've driven to Idlewild in my SUV several times and it aint that exciting in that ride ...... So hopefully I will have the 6 sorted out prior to the event / but have fun to all Teeners in any case.

AZ just released a Rt 66 personalized plate and look what's available. piratenanner.gif

Attached Image

Posted by: euro911 Apr 5 2017, 11:52 PM

Nice.

How much are these plates, Michael? ... and are they an extra charge every year?

Also, how much is normal AZ registration for your 914?

CA has been charging me $83./yr for a 914. The Ghia just went up for 2018 tags (from $83. to $97.) ... so expecting to get screwed on the other vehicles too mad.gif

FYI, CA personalized retro black plates were $50. for the initial purchase with an additional 'fee' of $40./yr dry.gif

Posted by: michael7810 Apr 6 2017, 07:20 AM

Hey Mark - in AZ the best way to go is with collector car registration which requires similar insurance. I use American Collectors insurance and it's $300 per year for the 914 & 944. Plates for the 914 were $115 for 5 years. It would have been $50 less except I have a specialty plate (historic car). So the Rt 66 plate would be $115 for 5 years and if you personalize it that adds probably another $50 (AZ has a nice website that makes it easy to get drivers license and car registration info/purchases www.servicearizona.com). Welcome to 'zona.

Thanks for the info smile.gif I have the DR license form already filled out and there is a DMV office in Payson. They do require some sort of safety inspection for out-of-state vehicles coming into the state for registration, IIRC.

I'll be starting off with the post-1975 vehicles as the bi-annual smog checks aren't required in Gila County. No issues, all of them pass smog in CA with flying colors anyway ... but added up, it costs an extra $200. for the CA smog checks on those - in addition to the rising CA annual registration 'fees'.

I'll look into the collectors insurance for the P-cars - even the insurance is less expensive in AZ mueba.gif

I didn't even need to solicit Chris. He called me and volunteered to sponsor. Thank you Chris and Mark and all the others who are sponsoring RT66 this year.

Hey Kent: This will be the first Rt66 I have missed since my acquisition of this 914 / This unfortunate condition may be averted if our pal Perry delivers on his production of my engine harness but time is thin to say the least. Without it the car is ready to fire up but has no fire... sheeplove.gif

My goal was to get it sorted out prior to the event but there is still the break in process what ever that is..... In any case, happy travels to all involved.

I recieved Perry Keihl's work of art in the harness bundles and detailed instructions to mate the MSD to the harness and to the engine etc. Taking the shroud off of a 911 engine in a 914 after installation of the carbs, linkage, block off plates, bla bla is a real treat... just to get at the three wires that go to the back of the alternator....

When will I be able to attend another run? confused24.gif

Posted by: Chris914n6 Apr 18 2017, 01:58 AM

Couldn't get the 914n6 running in time. No sparks or injectors firing so I must have missed something on the wiring or fried the ecu.

Good news I get a comfortable but slow ride with a great stereo and heater with plenty of room for all the raffle goodies I'm gonna win santa_smiley.gif

Guys and Gals........

I may not be able to attend this years R66 gathering due to the absolutely bitchen solar cell conversion that only I am performing on my 914.

Even though I haven't figured out the exact details of my conversion I am still waiting for a bitchen wiring harness to my polished aluminum microinverters from Jeff Bowlsby.

Due to some other alternative facts, I may be able to actually remove the panels and drive the car with the original motor that was engineered for it by NARPters known to have hung out at the time with the so called man named Ferry...er something like that.

Please see the attached pictures for your drooling pleasure.

If you put a panel on the rear truck lid also, the two panels will be the equalivant of a 1.8..... biggrin.gif

Don't need to. Those be 325 watt panels....Solarworld...made in Merica.

The one panel is worth more than a running 1.7 I notion.

See ya guys up there...need to tighten the alt belt me thinks and sounds like, if I ditch the solar panel. It did fire right up.

Think I better put the wine bottle down and go to bed now. That Paso wine is pretty darn good. I'll bring a bottle with.

The big drawback with micro inverters is that they're only grid-tie - no battery back up when the grid goes down dry.gif

Have you looked into the Tesla Power Wall? ... http://www.energysage.com/solar/solar-energy-storage/tesla-powerwall-home-battery/

So last weekend I noticed that the back brakes were making a scraping noise and decided to check on them on Sunday of course the inside pads was worn.
I ordered new rotors, pads and everything else except the 2 screws for the rotors, which I drilled out. headbang.gif Now the teener is on jack stands and don't get me started on the ass dragger. It has a flat tire on a brand new tire.
I have all the parts except the screws, so a trip to the hardware store and then complete the brake job tomorrow.
Wish me luck.
Going to make this trip hell or high water.

Ravi, don't worry too much if you can't source those little screws right now ... once you bolt your wheel(s) up, the rotors aren't going anywhere and you can replace the screws at your leisure after the run.

Here is the update
Worked from home today and found the screws at Ace hardware store. Installed one side and as I was finishing up the second one I had an emergency at work. I was on the phone for 3 hours because some idiot screwed up. Finished the 2nd brake bleed them and noticed that it was leaking brake fluid from where you adjust the brakes. At 9:30pm I just called it done.
I also got the tire repaired on the ass dragger, so unfortunately I will bringing that instead.

See everyone tomorrow morning

That's what happened to me back in 2007. As I was adjusting the venting clearance on the 'BB', they started leaking. Since I had to buy new rear calipers, went ahead and bought new fronts as well - just wouldn't have them in time.

The nice thing is, you can drive anything you want on these 'runs' ... it's the people that make the events worth attending. I just have too many items on my plate to break away right now, even for a week end dry.gif

Hey everybody, I made it back to PHX at 1100, 5 hour drive. Had to frinckle with the car this AM to get it to turn over. It really feels like the ignition switch. I want to thank Kent and John for planning and MC'ing this event. I drove 1085 miles roundtrip and a couple hundred were on the best mountain roads I've driven and met (and re-met) some great people. All I have to say about that is the Southern California boys have some damn nice cars.
I also want to than Leaman, Rob, and Mark for fixing my loose Bilstein in less time than it took me jack up the car (thanks Strat for the jack) and remove the wheel. Drive safe and see y'all at WCR.

Posted by: olsib914 Apr 23 2017, 01:36 PM

A big thank you to Kent(76-914) for organizing this event,beautiful mountain roads and great accommodations. Only lost two,Kevin on Friday and Marc on Saturday, both made back to Idyllwild Another thanks to Ravi and Michelle for keeping us hydrated. Special thanks to Strat for letting me drive his 914 on Saturday...I now know what my teener should run like when done(next year..hope hope) Oh yeah, Jeff do not show your wife your winning certificate just yet...it will only confirm HER opinion
stay safe everyone
Olsib 914..yet another Mike
