    Every year Dave Bautista puts on the Northern California Roadster Reliability Run. The cars that show up are always awesome. But the cars are eclipsed by the roads Dave lays out for the run. Each year a different route is chosen. Nor. Cal is blessed with many divergent eco systems and we passed through at least a half different ones. This is a challenging drive with steep mountain grades, sharp corners, narrow lanes, and sometimes poor road surfaces. Many first time participants don't come back due to the rigors of the 150 miles covered. But the ones who come back year after year are true roadster pilots. Thanks to Dave for a great Saturday.

    I gather that the run is for flathead powered roadsters with 32 as the cut-off year - didn't see any Model 40 roadsters in the mix.
    Thanks for the pics.

    Open to 36 & older open cars, flathead or banger power. Always a few overheads make the run, most are hidden under a hood. I really did not inventory the engines but I think the break down was 1 banger, 3 overheads, and around 18 flathead V8s. As far as i know there were no failures which is amazing given the rigors of the run.

    Thanks for that V8RPU, so the "late model roadsters" were a No-show LOL
    Looks like a great event and the way they should be i.e out driving and enjoying, not parking and sitting.
