2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: Monterey Historics Weekend
August 18, 2011
Today I'm headed north to Monterey, California in our 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon to watch the historic car races at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and look at some restored (and over-restored) classic cars at Pebble Beach.
I'm using the old Ridge Route to make my exit over the mountains and away from the LA basin instead of the kinder, gentler (but still steep) grade that is Interstate 5. The Ridge Route doesn't go all the way across anymore -- far from it -- but at least I'll be able to toss the Acura at a few slow and medium speed corners before I wade in amongst the trucks and other traffic and make the slog on up the freeway.
Before I left home I took suspension walkaround photos in my new driveway. I'll tweak them up and post something next week after I get back.
