Report from the Road: Intermeccanica Tour 2009

Report from the Road: Intermeccanica Tour 2009

Intermeccanica has been building specialty cars for the past 50 years. Founded by Frank Reisner in Turin Italy, their history is vast and interesting. Frank’s son Henry runs the company now, and every summer hosts a tour and BBQ to thank customers and friends for their business. This was the second tour I’ve attended, and the event was definitely one to remember.

My Great American Road Trip

My Great American Road Trip

We’ve all been on one. I’m sure if you think about the road trips you’ve taken, you can’t help but crack a smile at the adventures. What better thing to do in these challenging times than get back to enjoying simple pleasures, close to home, with family and friends? That’s what I was thinking when a late night eBay purchase led to one of my favorite family vacations with my four children!

SoCal or Bust Part 6: The Finish Line

SoCal or Bust Part 6: The Finish Line

Day 5 started early. We had gotten a good night’s sleep and woken to the sounds of splashing water. Yep, the pool would be where we spent this day. Now, when a bunch of sunburned car nerds (in an appropriately grown-up manner, of course) test the  effects of grain alcohol, stories will result. Some of those stories cannot be shared on the Internet. Let’s move on to Day 6.

SoCal or Bust Part 5: The Reason For Our Trip

SoCal or Bust Part 5: The Reason For Our Trip

Day 4 was supposed to start at 5:00am with us taking care of the last few details on Don’s Celica. It kind of did. I think a few of us were just-then closing our eyes (from the night of one too many libations) and others were just plain lazy and slept in. No matter, we were on the road by 5:45am (only a little late) and ready to take Southern Cali by storm.

What’s the best vehicle for summer road trips?

What’s the best vehicle for summer road trips?

Richard Griot built this bitchin’ 1972 Suburban, loaded up his kids, and hit the road bound for Yellowstone Park. My dad once bought an old V-dub Westfalia just for a road trip to Frisco, then sold it when we got home. It’s an age-old tradition, from the Grapes of Wrath, to the Griswolds, right down to you and me. So… What’s your ultimate rig for summer road-tripping?

SoCal or Bust Part 3: Doin’ the Polar Bear Plunge

SoCal or Bust Part 3: Doin’ the Polar Bear Plunge

Part 2 of this car show road trip saw us drifting off to Sleepyland with visions of peacocks and shotguns dancing in our heads. The next morning, however, would come with a bluebird on our shoulders.  The first Wired of the day was downed before dawn, and we were itching to find a car wash to brush the bugs from our cars’ teeth.

SoCal or Bust, Part 1: Saddling Up

SoCal or Bust, Part 1: Saddling Up

I don’t often drive 1,800 miles for a six-hour car show, but that’s what happened recently when, along with several other members of the Puget Sound Toyota Owners Club, I decided to make the trip to Long Beach for the Toyota Owners and Restorers Club 14th annual ToyotaFest. Say it along with me now… Road trip!
