Hi there,

I'm heading up to the Napa area this Friday and on to Concorso Italiano next week. Probably a 1,000 miles in total but I only do once a year.

Aside from checking the oil, coolant and tires, do you have any other quick check advice?

Your wallet, credit card, triple A card and your fraternal order of police "get out of jail freecard". Some cash for when the credit card swipers don't work.

A roll of duct tape, and a vise grip for anything the above won't cure ;)

Last week I drove PCH from SF to Santa Cruz. How I wish I had my Maser instead of that POS rental!

So not to hijack the thread, I would take a beautiful blonde along just in case :cool:

I've put 65K miles on my 05 mostly in road trips in cool places; several trips up and down Hwy 1 in California. Never let me down. I just get in it and go and don't worry about it. The chances of a great driver are much higher than the chances of dying. And anything in between can be tolerated and fixed up for a better trip next time.

Important thing to check though!
Is your iPOD up to date or your CDs in order. Can't do a good road trip without the right music.

Have one quart of the appropriate grade engine oil - my cars burns about a half-quart in 1500 miles.

Make sure you have the right DVD's to entertain any passenger in the back seat :D

Enjoy the drive.
