Road trip and work shop adventures. Various countries, various cars.
On The Road
Arrived back in South Florida and my good friends were away in Georgia so I was able to stay at their place while I sorted out the next part of my life. With no permanent home, I can choose to do or go anywhere. I checked in with Orbit Racing and discussed the plans for the 993. Needless to say, more money to be spent and more time. Still under budget so all good with me. It meant one option of jumping in that car and heading north to Toronto and then across to Vancouver was not going to happen. Something for another year.More...
VW Golf R32
The current road trip. Technically it started in Sydney, New South Wales when I bought the car. The intention was always to go from Melbourne as far north as I can before I get sick of it or some other reason. Only 200 of the 2004 VW Golf R32 models were imported into Australia so not a lot for sale at any one time. Missed one in Melbourne by a week so I ended up getting one that was for sale in Sydney.More...
My road trip from June to August 2016 in a 1996 Porsche 993 Carrera was a bit different for a number of reasons. I bought the car more as a project to work on back in Florida, rather than for the road trip. It just so happened that it was for sale in Hawaii and that meant I could then do the across the US trip I have wanted to do for a long time. Of course I did need the assistance of a ship to get it from Hawaii to California!More...
I've been a car nut since I was a young boy. Not sure why, as I came from a boating family. Perhaps it's the independent spirit in me. Combine that with a love of travel and road trips are the obvious thing to keep me happy.More
