I’m preparing to make a road trip this weekend in the beauty you see above. Planning on driving from Charlotte, NC to Miami, Fl - a distance of roughly 700 miles. The thing is everyone I talk to about it thinks I’m crazy. Surely Oppositelock thinks this is a good plan!

In the spirit of full disclosure, I am driving up to purchase the car and the 700 mile drive back will be my first drive in it. Plan is for me and my buddy to drive up and then bring the 2 cars back. The way I see it - this will be a good shakedown drive, if I make it back without issue then I can drive the car without worry for years to come. If anything does break, then at least I’ll know what needs fixing. I’ve got a laundry list of tools and spares to bring along in case anything does happen on the road, but I’m confident in the cars ability. Worst case scenario, I’ve got the AAA gold membership and can make it home 100 miles at a time.

I’ll try to post updates from the road, but for the up to the minute breaking news follow my instagram (@turn1photos). Hopefully there won’t be any pictures from the side of the road...
