Kevin and Deborah Sheehan deserve a big thank you for planning and guiding this fantastic Santa Cruz backroads exploration trip. Among the Bay Area car clubs, the SFBA branch is well-known for our First Sunday Drives. The Pontiac Solstices Club heard about us and drove all the way from Sacramento to join us for this relaxing trip through Santa Cruz's gorgeous forests.

 

At the gathering place, one of our members had an interesting conversation. The member, Mike Epperson, said, "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."
