Default Official NorCal Rambling Thread

SoCal has one. Why shouldn't we??
I'll start off...
I saw a White NB driving up Harder Road at CSUEB this morning. He had a CR sticker on his roll bar.
Also saw a Red NA parked in a church parking lot next to campus. Looked pretty dope. If you guys see this, hit me up!

This thread is a complete fail. Anyways, I saw a girl driving a Montego on bronze Rotas today around campus. If you happen to be a member here, you're winning. Nice car.

I'll be honest, 99% of the time when I see Miatas around here they're completely stock with old folks driving them.

Check out norcalroadsters, there's a spotted thread there. I've seen a few modded miatas around the peninsula, including this red NA with a hardtop, wide wheels, bride seats, roll bar, and forgot all the other mods by Serramonte in Daly City.

Another red NA with bright green daisies with a roll bar around 19th ave

this dark green NA with bride seats and hard top by daly city a month or so back. I did the headlight flip up thing and you waved hi.

another heavily modded NA next to Daly City bart, you gave me the peace sign a month or so back. I was the guy in the black NA with the top down.

Red NA with bronze rims, trunk rack, and possible Hella Ecodes, they were hella bright! Female driver, around 840pm is on i80 Eastbound Vallejo/Fairfield area last night. I was the crazy dude in the montego w/white rims who drove from SJ to Sac w/the top down 9 o'clock at night!!

Hahaha Fremont would be dope. So much closer than Millbrae.

Anyways, yeah... I saw a white NA slammed on black wheels on A street in Hayward today. Looked pretty sick! Also saw a green NB driving on campus at CSUEB. Might've been a mazdaspeed? Good stuff in the East Bay area though haha

Chase! or Anyone that drives up calstate or hills just like it. What kind of maintainance do you do? I might be going there next yr and I feel the hill will kill my miata. I've went up garin ave (big hill, nice houses, park south of cal state) and it seems to encourage eating brake pads, engines (I would assume), ect.

What do you feel wears the most on the car with commuting the hills?

On another note: Tonight I drove around chabot/industrial towards mission.

No not at all haha. The Harder Road & Carlos Bee hills are pretty mellow to me. I've never heard of hills tearing up cars either. Just gotta watch out for the deer up here lol.

I would assume drive up at 3500rpm?? What gear? (as I have driven on the backroads of chabot lake and I was driving it wrong, close to lugging 2200 when the hills got steep, then I was going back and forth from 2-3)
By the way, I recommend that route and I deem it a CR meet! (but we'll hold up first, that's a tricky course, practice on calstate drive first).

Okay guys, I was thinking of meet ideas. I live within 10 mins of calstate, so...I was thinking of:
1. A run down mission Wait, pavement near Sonic, sucks A***.
2. Down Hesperian (I've done it at night, minimal stop signs)
3.???
4.Some loop around hayward, union city, ect.
5. Chabot lake (redwood rd, google map it, the road that runs behind the lake)
and when I out grow my low mileage OCD, partial caused by gas prices, we'll go to Sunnol.


Update: Down for union landing!

I go up both Carlos Bee & Harder in like 3rd gear around 3k rpms and sometimes go to 4th gear if I get a up to 4k rpms. I drive at like 45-55mph up hills if I'm not behind slow people..
