In August a few members of the Valley British Auto Club headed to the coast. We were invited to the British Invasion at the Vina Robles Winery in Paso Robles. They were celebrating the 60’s with a live band, wine and fish and chips, with a display of British cars. Hey, whats not to like; entertainment, wine, cars, wine, and food and more wine. We drove over that morning checked in and rested before the event at 4 ish. They had us park our cars up and down the driveways. A TR3 and 2 MGB’s represented our club. There were about 40 cars in all.

The band and wine were both good. It was a nice setting, a bit on the windy cold side. I am not complaining since we left behind the low 100’s in the valley.
The next morning the wife and I decided to go the next 45 min drive and and walk the beaches of Cambria. We love the clean ocean air. The car loves the cool weather also.
After a walk on the beach and some antique shopping we had to head home.When we got over the foothills we couldn’t stand the heat anymore, the top went up and the air on, yes a 1971 MGB with air. We made it home by sunset.
Had a great time look forward to next year, hopefully a few more members will make the trip.  Richard
