California Stingrays


C3s from Northern (Highway 49) and Southern Calif. met at Sonora then traveled to
Twain Harte and on to Columbia and a private residence for a delicious BBQ.


First stop was a park in Twain Harte for a photo session



Randy's, Pete's, Thomas's, Peggy Sue's, Conrad's



Peggy Sue's '82, Conrad's '80 - a 3 month Corvette owner!



Randy's '68, Pete's '69



Les's BBC '69, Steve's '73



Chrome and Rubber bumpers



The whole ball of wax - so to say



Tod, driving his pickup due to a P/S pump failure on his C3, obtained permission
for us to lineup in front of the Twain Harte firehouse - How cool is that?



Another firehouse shot.  Suddenly we had to leave when an alarm came in



On the road - Check the license!



Most of the roads were like this, just C3s, little traffic



Near Columbia

This is a great shot!
