We have been blessed with some cooler weather this week. It is definitely roadster time with the top down. For me, the wind in your face and sun on your arms and legs makes you feel free. Free from stress, anxiety and all other problems we face on a day-to-day basis. As you know, I try very hard to always stay positive and when I need to be free, I jump in the roadster and go for a ride. Normally, I hit the freeways as you can drive fast and see some beautiful scenery where I live. If troubles really are present, I drive to Malibu and overlook the Pacific from high atop the Santa Monica Mountains. The views are breathtaking and the winding roads make driving a roadster a thrill a minute. The stretch of 40 miles from Los Angeles to Point Mugu is known for all types of driving events for cars, trucks, motorcycles and even bicycles. I would caution you that the roads are patrolled by the Malibu Police and racing fans will be ticketed for their abuse of the speed limit.
In referring to roadsters, I am talking any car with the top down works to achieve the feeling of freedom. I have had convertibles of all vintage and well as roadsters and achieved the same sensation while driving with the wind and sun at high noon. Jane and I take Poppy to Malibu quite often for ice cream and some relaxation on a week day which is not so crowded. Weekends are really crowded in this city with a population of 17 million in greater Los Angels. I’m sure you have your favorite place to cruise topless and don’t mind the mess it makes of your doo or tan of your skin. Life deserves a top down drive whenever you need the feeling. You won’t regret the drive even if it rains, which it never does in Southern California.

Not sure where this shot was taken but the Pier looks familiar.
Roy loaned Gregg his roadster for a ride to sooth the nerves on his way to Canada.
We go as a group sometimes and all enjoy the ride. Roadsters are more fun but we seem to follow the fun crowd in our closed cars.
