Default Honda Museum Tour, Torrance CA, June 24, 2018

It’s been too long since we have had a social gathering in Southern California.

With suggestions and help from a few other forum members we have arranged an invitation to the Honda Museum, located in Torrance California. The museum is open by invitation only. They are allowing us to tour June 24, 2018, 1:00 pm.

We are planning to meet for lunch in the area and then head to the museum after. The lunch meeting place has not been determined yet and this first post will be updated in the near future with the location.
**Edit for Lunch meeting, 11:30am Sunday**
The restaurant will be opening 30 minutes early this day to help accommodate our group.
The location for Lunch if you would like to meet will be at:
Red Car Brewery
1266 Sartori Ave
Torrance, Ca 90501
redcarbrewery.com
****

The museum is located in Torrance near the corporate headquarters, however it is down the street. The actual address will be updated in this first post in the very near future.
**Edit for address **
The actual address for the Honda Museum is:
19988 Van Ness
Torrance, Ca 90501
The building is located in an Industrial Park and is unmarked, other than the address on the top of the building.
****

This information has also, been posted to the Insight Facebook group page. By some of the others who have been instrumental in helping plan this.

All are welcome to attend. If you would like to attend please add your name list. Copy the list paste it and your name.

Wow. This is a fantastic opportunity! I'll be 800 miles away on the 23rd, but if I drive all night I might make it. Here is a video of what you'll see:

This is 1100 miles from me in Colorado, but I'm seriously considering to attend. Thanks for posting the video Sam, and Scott for organizing. If Sam goes...I'll go, no pressure.

If I can get it together I'll be coming from Grand Junction, CO and returning there. I'll be in my Miata.

Hello all! New to the forums. I picked up a 2006 Silverstone just over a month ago. Scott gave it a once over, giving it a clean bill of health. (Thanks Again Scott!!) I'd love to tag along. A few years ago Honda invited the S2000 community to tour the museum, I'd love to see if any changes were made. I was wanting to share a few pictures and links, however, this is my first post with limited posting abilities.
