Thread: 400 mile drive today for absolutely no reason, these cars are meant to be driven!

  1. #1

    400 mile drive today for absolutely no reason, these cars are meant to be driven!

    I couldn't focus at work today so I packed a quick lunch and jumped in the 70 and drove... No plan, no GPS, no map and no schedule. I did just over 400 miles and it reminded me why I love these early cars so much! I am always amazed that a car almost 50 years old has such an unreal performance envelope and brings more joy than ANY of the newer high HP Porsche's. I appreciate the new stuff but these cars are just magical!

    Stayed off the Interstate and did nothing but remote ribbons of twisty 2-lanes... Some photos:

    Wonderful!
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

    What's the difference between heroin addiction & P-Car projects? Heroin use has it's limits.
