    I'm in, so far in my group we have a Huracan, a new Dodge Viper ACR, 458 coupe, and me (360 coupe). Maybes are a MP412C, Aventador, and another Viper.

    It's a great drive, we meet early at Starbucks, 6:30 AM, and get up hwy 1 before there is traffic. On the way back we pass all the photographers waiting for the pebble beach tour. It's a spirited drive, but you can drive your own pace and catch up. Please only join if your driving an appropriate car (something special and or unique, and high speed capable). We're always game for new people.

    Beware the big change in Pebble Beach Tour route this year (and possible Hwy-1 closure in Big Sur) to make sure your drive is not affected.

    Expect that Starbucks to be very busy...has been a common stopping pt for firefighters. This morning 6 Cal Fire trucks were parked across the street (not enough room for them in the parking lot) and the firefighters were crossing to go to Starbucks.

    - Hwy 1 will be closed from Point Sur Lighthouse to North Coast Ridge Rd.
    - The closure may last up to 24 hours.
    - Hwy 1 will be closed to all traffic, including residents, in both directions.  Firing operations will only be considered during favorable weather conditions.
