Hoons Will Be Caravaning to Canepa This Saturday


This is a Public Service Announcement. For those of you not in the San Francisco Bay Area, you will be spending the next two weeks surfing Canepa Design’s website in your spare time. Canepa’s complex, near Santa Cruz, is an all-in-one showroom, museum, tuning and restoration shop, and design studio.

For Bay Area Hoons, you are hereby notified that this Saturday’s Seconds Saturdays Oakland event will be different. We will be meeting outside of Hanzel’s Auto Body (456 23rd Street) at 8 a.m (on June 8, 2013). We will then all caravan together and head to Canepa Design (4900 Scotts Valley Drive, Scotts Valley). Canepa is hosting its own Cars & Coffee Saturday morning. We Hoons will not only be able to show our cars at the get-together, but we will also get a tour of Canepa’s car collection. This should be loads of fun.

We hope to see you there. Click here to RSVP.

    Checks price of plane ticket to SFO. Checks bank account. Drat.

    Yet another reason to move to California. Sigh…

      So very many reasons to move away from here, though. . .

        Well, the grass is always greener, as they say.

          Funny you say that. I was in Green Bay a few years back for a conference, and my lasting impression of the place is of how green everything was.

            Haha, I can only assume you were there sometime in April, May, or June. Otherwise you've got snow cover or dried out grass.

            … Come out to southeastern PA one summer. Pretty much everything is green.

      I read somewhere that Canepa has sold most, if not all, of the 959s in the States. It is a spectacular "dealership". I think he even had something to do with Bill Gates' 959.

    There was a 959 at the Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca round of ALMS.
    What a beautiful car. Meet your heroes.

    I'm arriving on a flight that day just after noon. Sadly, I think I'll be missing this event by just that much.

    I shall be there in the ZomBee!!
    Or, at least broken-down somewhere on the route. I'm caravan'ing with yet another MG, teammate Monte's BGT so we can laugh at each-other every time one of our LBCs go up in a cloud of smoke.

      Do you carry on the fine, Top Gear tradition of mocking followed by driving away?

    Canepa sounds like fun but my wife insists that we go to Saturday's combine harvester demolition derby.

      Please bring back some pictures and share them. Maybe you can get a weekend byline – Demolition Domingo.
