Kind of inspired my own recent turo-centered trips and some comments in @homeforsummer's thread, I had an idea for this thread. Basically, give your top-whatever road trips, including the rough route (could be google maps, if you want) and what car accompanied you. You could post a picture of the car too. For me: #1. Italy (general route) - Alfa Romeo 159 JTD Sport Wagon, 6 speed manual. (~2,000km) I'll see if I can find pictures later...but how could you not love this setup? The car was fast, comfortable, economical, and absolutely beautiful to look at, inside and out. It cruised wonderfully on the autostrada and was fun in the mountains, especially with all that low end torque. I don't think I could think of a better way to tour Italy, outside of something truly classic...but that might have become annoying. This was in 2007, before GPS navigation was completely ubiquitous, and we (my family) navigated entirely by map. I did at least 1000km behind the wheel. If I lived in Europe, I would probably own one of these cars. #2. USA - Michigan, Texas, California (general route) - Mazda 1.5, 5 Speed manual. (~5,000km) This one was less about the scenery (though the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona were stunning) and more about the significance....finishing school and then moving out west to take a job. Existentialism in the desert. The Mazda wasn't....an ideal car for this. Loaded up with all my crap it was probably closing in on 3,200lbs and with only 100hp to move it. Through it all, it did an admirable job and never skipped a beat. Got close to 40mpg the entire way, despite the fuel tank needing a refill every 300 miles. This was completely solo and no cruise control either. The biggest stint on this trip (though not my biggest stint in this car) was Fort Worth to Tuscson...a cool 920 miles. My solo one day record is 1012 miles. #3 USA - Vermont (just all around, no particular route) - Chevy Silverado 4.3 V6, Automatic (~1,000km) Last fall my gf and I took a trip to Vermont to see the fall. There wasn't anything particularly remarkable about either the car or the place, but it was somehow just very special. Vermont in late fall is a quiet place, and it sometimes felt like we had the whole state to ourselves. Apple orchards and lots of sheep. The truck was not expected (I booked a subcompact ) but it proved to be a very comfortable touring machine. It felt like pleasureboating more than driving, but that has it's own appeal. If you ever want to slow down in life, head to Vermont. #4 USA - Hawaii (basic route) - Fiat 124 Spider, 1.4T, Automatic (~300km) Already did a pretty in-depth report on this one. The place is wonderful...the car had some issues. On the whole, it didn't distract from the greatness of this trip and I never got tired of looking at the little roadster (even if I absolutely got tired of driving it). #5 USA - Texas to Colorado - Subaru Legacy Spec B, 2.5T, 6 Speed Manual (~2400km) Me, my brother, and our buddy (with the Legacy) going to the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. This wasn't the first trip we made to the climb (first couple of times were in a '94 Integra LS that almost didn't move at high altitude), but the Subaru was definitely the best car we did the drive in. A superb tourer with good power and lots of comfort. #6 USA - Central Texas - Hyundai Genesis (G80) 3.8 V6, 8 Speed Automatic (~650km) See here. Chuffing lovely car. Wish I had more time on this trip, only one day worth of exploring really. This is a car you can do 1,000 miles a day in no problem. #7 USA - San Francisco to San Diego - Porsche Boxster (~1,500km) A mainly coastal trip from SF to SD and back. It was nice, but I don't have strong memories of it being great. I think its probably because we were on the 101 for most of the trip, and that's a little boring. San Diego was lovely of course. The Boxster was flawless, apart from a dead battery at the start of the trip. Its impressive how much stuff you can put in this 2-seat mid engine roadster....far, far more than a Miata. [I think what separates a decent road trip vehicle from a great road trip vehicle is the perceived effort. The Genesis and Subaru Legacy (and Chevy Silverado, come to think of it) all felt completely effortless. The Boxster, Mazda2, and Fiat 124 all felt like they were either trying hard...or required a bit more effort/attention from the driver. Either one of those makes road trips less enjoyable, IMO. In the Boxster's case, I think it's the somewhat heavy and not quite right feeling clutch.] #8 USA - San Francisco to LA - Nissan Altima This was a great trip partially let down my a crappy rental Altima. Me and my brothers and my nephew, and my first time visiting the Golden State. Sadly, the "road" part of this trip was pretty forgettable. If the machine had been better, I'm certain this would be higher on the list. (There was another quite-similar trip in a rented Toyota Rav-4 from San Diego to Las Vegas to San Francisco. I will lump that one into this one. Great trip, mediocre car). #9 USA - San Francisco to Las Vegas to LA to San Francisco - Mazda 2 (~2,000km) This was a fun trip...but having 4 people in the little Mazda for this long of a trip, at that altitude, in the summer (110F+), really felt like it was stressing the car. The driving aspect of this trip was not enjoyable and I felt stressed most of the way. But once we were in Vegas, it was great! Special mention: When I was a kid (so I didn't do any of the driving) my family did a trip from Maine, USA to as far south as Mexico city. This was done in a 1995 Ford Winstar minivan with a 110lb German Shepherd onboard. Route. This was a 10,000km behemoth. I doubt I'll ever break this record...or want to. There have been more, but those are the ones that immediately come to mind. Share yours!
