Enjoy a Fall Drive

For many the slide in temperature is a sure sign that winter will be upon us and the days of car shows and seemingly endless daylight will soon be replaced by the crunching of snow and ice under foot and tire. While that is true for many parts of the U.S., it also marks an opportunity to enjoy what is perhaps the very best season for driving. Cool weather means little chance of overheating vintage machines, nor of their occupants. And fall foliage turns ordinary everyday sights into something to truly stop and appreciate.
There are tons of ‘Best Places for Fall Drives’ list out there, but it is not necessary to read any of them, and perhaps even advisable to avoid them. Most every place listed on any kind of popular list is likely to be overrun with otherwise well intentioned sight-seers. Your great adventure will feel more like a congested commute and all sense of spontaneity will be lost.

Use you sense of adventure and seek out a great drive of your own. Chances are, you already know…
