11/08: El Mirage: Revisited
What up gang? A few of us are heading out to El Mirage Dry Lakebed on November 8th and are welcoming fellow enthusiast.
Our last run (video: Dirty Pontiacs - http://s77.photobucket.com/albums/j6...t=e0732474.flv
) was great fun and we are looking to organize another run. A few of you guys had expressed interest in my last post about a part II a few weeks back so Iím tossing out an invite.
We are meeting up at the Dennyís off of Sand Cyn just off the 14 Freeway at 8am. See map below. This is just minutes north on the 14N from the San Fernando Valley.

We will be following a ďTread LightlyĒ policy. From what I understand, there will be a SCTA event the following weekend and a local wind sailing club has an event the weekend of the 8th / 9th.
Objective is to film the cars doing some high speed fly bys, some drifts, etc. Basically the fun stuff you see car commercials doing.
Any donuts or things of that nature will be done far out of the way of traffic and with respects to the area.
People are welcome to bring their cameras, mounts, etc for pictures and video, as this is just a casual car meet.
Side note: Effective October 1st, they now charge $15.00 to enter the lake bed.
Below I am working on a camera mount that I am experimenting with. Its still a work in progress and should fun. Camera would be mounted on the end of the aluminum pole and be used to film backwards and forwards. Clearly the cars will be kicking up dust so we will have to be creative with capturing certain shots.
Hey, guess the ION Redline is good for something!
Warning: You car will get dirty. Unless you are a desert rat and are not afraid of getting the car dusted, this might not be a run for you.
My buddy Danny took out his brand new G8 (in the video) and he doest have a scratch on the car and car was flawless one wash later. You just have to be smart about things and careful. I do recommend a sock or sleeve for your K&N.
On our way back to the valley (mid day) a few of us will be hitting up Cruisers car wash to clean up the rides. Iím looking forward to seeing their faces when we all pull up. LOL.
Thatís pretty much it. Post up if interested.
