About 20 club members and a few friends all convened at Lynn Park's private collection in LaCaƱada/Fleetridge, CA. Mr. Park was full of exciting stories about each Cobra. With about 25 vehicles in his double garages, 20 were original or historical Cobras, estimated value is in the $15+ million dollar range. After our visit, we drove east on CA-2 through the Angeles National Forest, stopping for lunch at the very popular Newcomb Ranch Restaurant, then on to Wrightwood before picking up I-215 for the ride home. What a memorable day.

  • SoCalSAAC members take a great annual cruise to experience San Diego's own wine country with winery visitations in the Temecula/Murrieta area. This event is led by club members Curt Sorweid and Jim Herney. The event always has a big turnout and is so well received that it was an instant hit from the very start!
