A. Lange & Söhne And Petrolicious Are Great Copilots To Have On A Coastal Rally

When we started talking to our friends at A. Lange & Söhne about a fun way to work together, we kept arriving back at the same conclusion: The best way to experience both of our brands is in person, hands on wheels, watches on wrists. So with that in mind we set out to invite the car guys we know who are also fans of Horology. We carved out a really special route from Malibu to Santa Barbara, California. The day started at 7AM at the Malibu Country mart before heading up Mulholland for a stab at The Snake. From there rally continued through Los Padres up through Ojai, and then down into Santa Barbara for a lunch at the Four Seasons Biltmore. Along the way we stopped off in Santa Paula to visit our friends at the Collector Car Vault, a separate story about the collection in there shortly.

All in all we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day with friends. Would you like to be informed about our next #DriveTastefully rally? Drop us a note in the comment section below!

Great pictures as always.
How about a drive through the Blue Ridge Parkway region , maybe in conjunction with a vintage event at Virginia International Raceway.

Looks like a fun day, how about putting together a drive in the UK/Europe?

Believe me, Matt, I’d love to do one in UK, and continental Europe. If not this fall, hopefully next spring!

I saw your posts about this on Instagram over the weekend and it looks like it was a great time for everyone. I would love to know when the next #DriveTastefully rally is happening,

Seeing the “Drive Tastefully” decal on the back of the Alfa Spider reminds me, I’ve seen Afshin on the track and perhaps Petrolicious should have a secondary motto (and decal) for the track, “Drive In Anger”!

Haha! How about we compromise on “Drive Tastefully in Anger”.
