    Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Recent Sunday afternoon gathering in half moon bay, please excuse the BMW in the shot...

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Wow ...always loved the Devilish Diablo

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Sweet! Love the 997 color!

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    sooo many choices!! as discussed here recently you can opt for clear turn lenses instead of amber on your 911.IMHO crg

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Okay, I'll bite. The BMW? It needs no excuse: in the photo are all fine cars. All with strengths and weaknesses. Besides, given mfgr alone, I'd choose the German-made (and assembled) car anyday.

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Very nice gathering!

    Besides... I agree with MMD. The M5 deserves its place on the photo. Especially since it reminds me that once upon a time, BMWs were gorgeous.
    Mr Bangle will be first against the wall when the revolution comes!

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Love the 6.0!!

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    BMW appearance excused.

    What's up with that amber sidemarker on the 997?

    It's not an M5 is it?

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Wow, beautiful symmetry in that photo (even with the M5)...and I can see why the Ferrari 360 Modena's have not lost any of their value-incredible, timeless design.

    Revolution Better come fast because ordinary people (certainly not we here!) are starting to like (or at least not mind) the new look. Personally the new look makes me siiiiiick. No more BMWs for me (after 25 years) until they start looking as classy and sophisticated (timeless as opposed to trendy) as they once did.

    It doesn't look like we're gonna see anything classy from BMW in a while...

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Nice shot... Wish I was there...

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay

    Good call on the clear turn lens, i never noticed this on my car till this photo. The BMW was not an M5 but a previous generation 5 series.

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    Another angle

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    Is that in front of your house?

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    Hamilton and some of my other "buds" were at my place for my Superbowl party. That's my pool house..... You should see the pool...

    uhhh, then maybe you could adopt me?

    So this is where the Olympic torch hangs out during the off-season...

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    ...and I thought I had a big drive!

    Dan

    I know that motel!

    That is the Half Moon Bay Motel 6!

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    That's one wing of the house you should see the rest....

    The drive south of the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton is great!

    Here is the Pigeon Point Lighthouse on Highway 1 just south of the Ritz. On a clear day this is a great drive early in the morning before the tourist traffic starts. From Santa Cruz to the Ritz Carlton with the top down, the heater blasting, PSE open and the sun at your back cannot be beat!


    Re: The drive south of the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton is great!

    nice call orient express that is the Ritz at Half Moon Bay, a home away from home for us, and you are right about the drive North from SC.

    There are very few drives as nice, whole 101 south to santa Barbra, Aussie melborne coast 12 apostles (surf coast hwy), Lake Tahoe Rim drive/ride, etc

    I was surprised at the line up

    Do you think you could have parked any closer to the edge?!

    Just kidding, on a more serious note. Superb photo!

    Hmmmm! That's a novel system you have for heating the water in your Jacuzzi.

    Re: Recent Sunday afternoon in half moon bay - another pic

    People assume that's a fancy water feature, but it's actually my devious method for getting rid of waste-oil.

    Re: The drive south of the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton is great!

    Is that a bra on the front of your car Orient?

    So I guess you use waste brake fluid as suntan lotion?

    Back in the 80's I worked in Santa Barbara, but lived up about 60 miles north in Lompoc, so I had to do the Highway 101/Highway 1 drive you speak of twice a day. Granted it got a little boring day after day, but during the summer I would see cars with license plates from all over the world enjoying my little commute drive, and it made it worthwhile.

    BTW, what famous american movie has a scene with the hero driving his Alfa through a tunnel on this stretch of road. And for bonus points, what is odd about the way he is driving?
