Day two begins with a cars and coffee event hosted by Steve Myers at his fantastic Skunk River Restoration shop in Ames.
To say he has a little bit of everything is an understatement. With 945 miles and over 13 hours to drive today, Tony and I are going to have to pull ourselves away from all of the fantastic machinery on display. If he begins pulling out his race cars, it’ll be game over.
Day one is going to be our longest single day, spanning 998 miles from Harrisburg, PA to Ames, IA.
According to Google maps the drive should take 14 hours and 37 minutes, but I’m hoping to cut that down by a few hours. Accompanying me on the trip is Tony Intrieri, President? of Rally North America.
At AutoGuide we love road trips. Any chance there is to drive somewhere instead of walk/fly/boat, we take it.
I may be the guiltiest party here. Aside from my yearly adventures with the charity organization Rally North America, I’ll take any opportunity to get behind the wheel and drive.
McLaren unveiled a customized MP4-12C at Pebble Beach, indicating the British automaker will offer a long line of individual options for customers. This particular McLaren features a host of new upgrades and modifications put together by the British automaker, most notable of which are the Satin Orange paint and aggressive new fenders. There are also carbon fiber bits all over the car including a windshield cowl, engine cover gilles along the outside of the glass, and a new carbon rear exhaust cover. The rims have a polished face with black painted centers and the roof panel has also been painted black. Standard options of the 12C include carbon mirrors, a carbon lower front spoiler and rear valence as well as a stealth package which blacks out the exhaust tips and wing supports.
