    Off to the States in late April - things to do in CA/OR/WA?

    Hey folks,

    I've booked a long overdue holiday to the States at the end of April and was wondering if there were any events or meets occurring during the time I happen to be over there.

    Timeframes aren't set in stone at this stage but I will be in SoCal from around the 23rd-27th with a side trip to Vegas thrown in for good measure, then heading up PCH to the Bay Area from the 28th-4th May, and finishing up in the Portland-Vancouver area (OR/WA) from the 5th-9th at which point I fly back to NZ.

    Be good to hear your ideas/suggestions

    I'm also hoping to visit a rotary wrecker or two (for 1st generation Rx-7 parts) if anyone knows of any decent ones in the areas specified.

    Cheers
    Ed

    Pineapple Racing is on the outskirts of Portland, and there is a Mazda salvage yard nearby http://www.maztoy.com/

    Cheers, I'll check out those wreckers and see how I get on.

    Unfortunately I won't be in Solvang or Long Beach during the dates listed so will miss out on those two meets, gutted!

    En route to the Bay Area, stop in Monterey to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The place is amazing
