The road trip, it’s almost a right of passage for hoons. Having made a number of transcontinental trips- in every manner possible, from leisurely tourist, to balls to the wall speed demon, I can attest to the allure of the open road.
If you’ve made a similar journey, you may have done so in the family car- typically something a bit mundane, or as a means of getting to a college -chosen by distance so as to express your right of independence (until the laundry piles up and the money runs out) and usually in some clapped-out beater that your folks bought you in high school and you treated like an ugly dog.
So, imagine that you got a bug up your butt to take a trip across the great expanses of your native land. Also, suppose, for this little exercise, that you could chose your chariot regardless of cost or availability. Now, I have yet to fulfill two of my cross-country fantasies- via touring motorcycle and via Citroën Deux Chevaux.
So, lace up those Pilotis and make sure you’ve got your gas card. If we’re going to take an interstate (or inter province) drive, what’ our ride?
