Dave's Drives: Datsun 2000 Roadster on Mt. Diablo Road

A beautiful sunny December day in Northern California.  The trip up Mt. Diablo is a scenic drive, although it can be very crowded with cars and bicycles. It's worth the trip to the top if you have never been there… this short trip today didn't go to the top, but gives you a flavor of the views on the way up. You can go up either from the Danville side of the mountain, or from the Walnut Creek side.  This set of clips is the North side, coming from Danville via Diablo Rd and then Mt Diablo Scenic Blvd.  The best car of choice for this ride is definitely an open-top car if you have one, and since this isn't a good road for speed, don't bother with high power.
