SAMC Road Trip To Minden NV

May 14 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM PDT

Sunny weather is coming and it’s time to start planning another road trip. Jimmy Miller has planned a one day trip to Minden, NV. Our plan is to drive Hwy 50, up over the summit and head into Minden via Hwy’s 89 and 88. We are visiting the private collection of automobiles owned by Ned Bacon. The collection consists of 80 to 90 cars collected by his father, who happened to be a very close friend and fellow collector with Bill Harrah.

Our drive will take place on Sat, May 14. We will meet outside (Point East Dr) of the Marriott Hotel in Rancho Cordova at 7:45 AM and leave at 8:00 AM. We’ll head east on Hwy 50 and onto Hwy’s 89 and 88 to our destination. Our drive will last about 2 ½ hours. We recommend that you have already taken care of your breakfast and/or coffee on your own time before we meet. Also recommended would be taking along a snack and water as we will be driving directly to our destination and planning a late lunch after our visit and before our return home.

Once in Minden, we’ll go directly to location of the collection. Please note that this location has a gravel parking lot and if low ground clearance is a factor, you may park street side. While there we will be given a guided tour by owner, Ned. All of this will take about 2 ½ hours. After our visit, plans are being developed to have a late lunch at the Carson Valley Inn Casino, a short distance away. After lunch you have the option to enjoy more of Nevada or head back with the group.

This should be a great day to exercise your Mustang on some great mountain roads, seeing a great automotive collection and spending time together with your Mustang friends.

Event Rules:

Arrive on time with a full tank of gas. Be ready for a great mountain drive.
