Well, the 3rd Annual Santa Barbara Wine Cruise is history, and it was a good one! 16 cars took part, and we had every year and every color represented. We began in Santa Barbara, through the back hills to Los Olivos, then through Tepusquet Canyon, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Cambria, and up to San Simeon where we had an evening tour of Hearst Castle.

Mission Santa Barbara

Off to Cold Spring Tavern for lunch

Super AWESOME trip with a really, really great group of fellow dedicated Bullittheads!

The trip was fun from the very beginning. Mr. 68 Mike man did an excellent job of leading the pack and improvising when needed, orchestrated some of the best photo ops along the way and during the whole event.

Who couldn’t help but admire each and every one of the Bullitt’s that showed up and brought their owners and companions who were brave enough to ride shotgun.
The weather couldn’t have been any better, with lots of clear blue sky and perfect conditions.

We got a little separated at the beginning in the trip to the Mission, but no big deal as it’s pretty hard to keep a large group together when dealing with multiple traffic signals in a slightly congested area. But this was soon forgotten as soon as we headed out again.

Cold Springs Tavern…impressive good hangout in a great area hidden away in the mountain with some of the best tri-tip sandwiches. The view from the bridge…wow! But I had to keep eyes on the road.

Road ripping from there thru the twisties…what a blast! These cars were made to do this and they don’t disappoint, it was simply fun and amazing! Way better than sitting around at a car show in my opinion. I don’t know where it was that Mr. 68 Mike man took us on this but I’ve got to find out!

Out of the twisties and on to the next stop at a beautiful little town of Los Olivos for some well-earned refreshments and camaraderie…wine tasting and breweries, oh boy!
Up Hwy 101 and stop in Cambria for dinner.

On to the hotel and before we know it we are boarding the last tour bus headed up the hill to the Hearst Castle. The place was magnificent with the sun just setting and the nighttime lighting around the grounds. A clear evening sky with views of the mountains all around, that is until it got too dark to see in the distance. I wasn’t going to say it but I can’t help myself…the man had way too much money!

The next day after the sleepyheads got up and with breakfast out of the way (Some had to head back down the road to reality). The leftover Bullittheads still out for more had us tripping up Hwy 1 to Ragged Point. More fun, more wheel time, and more of the humbling scenery.

We went our separate ways shortly after heading back south. A quick stop to see the Sea Lions and say our good-byes.

I would like to personally thank each and every one of you in this group for the welcoming hospitality that I experienced right away from the first handshake and hello till the very end of the trip. Thank you all so much for including me! I really did have a great time and will have this experience to look back on for the rest of my days!

Suzanne and I had a blast, many thanks to all who made this great event happen! Maybe a few tweaks for next time but we certainly had no disappointments this time around. :cool:

One of my favorite pics is this shot of the herd of thirsty Bullitts hitting the pumps at Nipomo on our way up to Cambria.
