To jog my LA memories (when I had a Mustang 5.0 convertible), if I wanted to avoid traffic, I'd take a Sunday morning jaunt.....from my Glendale days, La Tuna Cyn from 210 toward Burbank was always a nice winding drive, and for a real long drive, Angeles Crest Highway.
From my Orange County days, PCH in the south county had its nice spots, but traveling there more recently, I see it as basically a 4-lane route, pretty but not a sports car road. Ortega Hwy (Rt 74) is the more traditional (but congested) sports car road. OC has gotten so built up since the 90's that my expertise about that area is hopelessly obsolete.
