This last weekend was the 50 Years of the Type 3 weekend on California's central coast. It was an incredible 4 days of Type 3 driving centered around the historic Borradori Garage in the beach town of Cayucos. 21 Type 3s (8 notchbacks, 3 squarebacks, 4 fastbacks and 6 Type 34s) and about 50 people attended. A great time was had by all.

Here are some shots from Friday. We drove up Highway 1 from Cayucos to the lower part of Big Sur and back, about a 120 mile round trip.

    Nice! Wish I could have made it out. Jason bugged me about it, but my wife was in Colombia all month, and there was no way I could make it out.
    Jason called me right when he hit 100,000 Km's. I cracked a beer open for him...LOL
