Twenty-five years later (more or less), we decided to try again.
Pat and Carol Askren volunteered to organize the troops and suggested their hometown of Fillmore, California ("quaint" doesn't begin to describe it) as a site. I missed last year's debut of the revived spring get-together, but the reviews were so good I knew I couldn't miss the fun this year.
Liv and I took a couple of days off and headed south, and then over to the coast. We stopped in Pismo Beach for the night (I highly recommend Jocko's in nearby Nipomo for steak fans) and visited the Nipomo Dunes as we continued south the next day. Fillmore is about 25 miles inland of Ventura on Highway 126.
Crosley of the Month" at the Crosley Auto Club website the day before.
Things wrapped up around 2:30, and we said our goodbyes and made plans to meet up again in September. After a quick spin through the numerous antique shops ringing the town square, we headed back toward Ventura, a little sunburnt, full of BBQ and looking forward to the next meet.
