a.k.a our third non-stop trip to the beach with nearly eighty ferraris tracing the
double yellow line of mulholland drive with the left fron wheel wishing that this could be
our daily commute where stop signs and bystanders turn green with envy
On Sunday morning June 27, 1999, the parking lot at the beautiful Commons Center was
anything but common. The parking lot came alive with over 75 beautiful Ferraris and about
160 enthusiastic guests which meant that our third annual Malibu Run and picnic was about
to begin. Everyone had coffee, juice and a baguette from the Corner Bakery and enjoyed the
incredible collection of beautiful Prancing Stallions. The early sign ups got their
commemorative Beach Towels. Just before 11:00 am the L.A.P.D. and Sheriffs arrived to help
with traffic and at 11:00 sharp we left the Commons.
We enjoyed a beautiful drive through Mulholland to Kanan and then to Pacific Coast
Highway. This year's drive was almost twice as long as last year's. The C.H.P. was at the
key intersections to assist us on our drive. Before you knew it we were at the historic
Adamson House with it's lush lawns and incredible ocean views for a great picnic lunch
prepared by the fabulous Monrose Catering. Most of us toured the house while our cars were
being watched over by the California State Park Rangers.
What a day
and more Ferraris. This event would not be possible without a lot of help. Our
gratitude to our special friends at the L.A.P.D. West Valley Division, Officer Joe Jakl at
L.A. Sheriffs, Officer Dwight McDonald at C.H.P., Ranger Lynette Falk at California
Rangers and the rest of my support team. Thanks also to Marshall Leib for rounding up FCA
members to participate on this drive. Without the help of all these committed people this
event would never come together.
Malibu Run number FOUR will be in June 2000, so watch for the details and hope you all
enjoyed the day. For any other information or early sign up call Michael at 818 368-0096.
