Vacation!

Postby VWsArent4Hippies » Thu Sep 08, 2016 9:43 am

I know a lot of you are on the west coast, so thought i'd see if anyone has some recommendations for me! I'm flying into Sacramento next weekend, picking up a '67 beetle, then driving up the coast. Planning to drive over to San Francisco, then head up, maybe to Portland? before coming back. Probably going to stick to the coast for the majority of the time, but i'd like to hear some people's opinions of where to go/ what to see.

Thanks!

The coast is a great drive but a slow one. If you are on a time frame it's not good. Oregon coast is amazing.

You can still buy single stage here in CA. Bought a quart last week to paint match/patina match a vert lid to my 65.

Like a lot of things, it's complicated..

Depends where you live.
Here, right on the coast, you can get regular style poison paint.

Drive over the hill to San Jose, and they are only allowed to sell the water-based enviro stuff.

The air is cleaner here by the ocean, and they must be down-wind from us, I guess?

:-k :-k :-k

My in-laws live up in the Sierras - Tuolome county,
And I register my bus there because it doesn't have to be smogged! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/



Oh, and not to totally hijack the thread..

If I was going to recommend a place around here, m favorite is Stinson/Bolinas/Pt. Reyes Station/Muir Woods.
If you don't get your project done in a "reasonable" amount of time.. You risk having an "dated" rig.. -John Jones
