There’s something about organized cruises and rally events that brings a smile to our faces. Maybe it’s because of the fact that it brings an opportunity for like-minded auto enthusiasts to gather around or maybe it’s because we enjoy looking at our rear view mirror and seeing a long line of modified cars as we drive spiritedly through the canyons. Well whatever it is, we like it and lucky for us the good people over at Optimist Run and autoMobile Uploads do exactly that, organize rallies.

A couple weeks ago they organized a unique cruise and movie event, the Fast and the Furious Drive In. The plan was to meet at Neptune’s Net for lunch, drive Mullholland Drive and watch the Fast and the Furious at a drive-in movie theater.

Here are a few photos of the Montego Blue E92 335i and our Alpine White E46 M3. Check out #FFdrivein on Instagram for more photos. Make sure to follow @autoMobileUploads and @OptimistRun to see the latest runs. They got their next one planned already!

Finally made it through the PCH traffic in Malibu and got to some clear roads.

Look familiar? The legendary Neptune’s Net where part of the Fast and the Furious was filmed. “I want in.”

The trip was already worth it. We got to try these delicious meals. Fish and chips with fried calamari and fries. Also, a chili cheeseburger because cheeseburger.

After our meal, we topped off our tanks and headed out to Mullholland Drive for a spirited cruise.

On our way through Mullholland Drive, we found this turnout spot right around dusk. The Hollywood sign appeared in the background so we stopped to take some photos.

After the Mullholland Drive we caravanned out to a drive-in movie theater to watch Fast and the Furious. It was a long day, but a fun one. Once again thanks to Optimist Run and autoMobile Uploads for throwing this event together!
