Photography by Afshin Behnia, and David Marvier for Petrolicious

Last week, Petrolista-in-charge Afshin Behnia shared a photo he took of his Alfa Romeo GTV on the Pacific Coast Highway while taking a road trip, on our Facebook page and it received quite a good response. In fact, many people responded by sharing their own road trip photos and pics of their cars. And so we’re running an informal contest where you can’t really win anything except having your photo and car featured on Petrolicious. Furthermore, if your photo is chosen you’ll have the opportunity to be featured in a ‘Your Roadtrip‘ segment.

On Friday we’ll feature the top ten submissions. The deadline was Thursday, October 2 at noon (Pacific time) and has passed. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos!

This year’s trip with my AC Greyhound was from London to Knokke-le-Zoute on the Belgian coast.
Fabulous roads in Breugelian Flemish flat landscapes, along canals lined with trees and crossing small towns like [url=”https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=damme+belgium&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=667&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=j_gvVN6ROc3OaKDPgZAI&ved=0CCAQsAQ”]Damme[/url].

I’d been searching between SEA/LAX the past year for a manual rear-drive car made the year I was born. Nothing too fancy just something to beat the shit out of and have fun with to keep me off my motorbike in the city. I was just about to pull the trigger on an 82 Capri with a 372 windsor that sounded healthy on solid lifters + tremec and a currie rear-end. I drove 130 miles to give the guy a cash offer at 90\% of his asking price and got turned away – luckily. Maybe. The next day I saw… Read more »

Here is the previous toy-car on a proper winter rally in Austria in 2013. Absolutely the most unsuitable car for the event, but great fun!

Very difficult to decide on favorites, I have a bunch. The first shot is my old 174,000-mile, ridden hard, put away wet, smack a deer and fix it with packaging tape, get it sideways every day, year-round workhorse 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata on Mattole Road in Northern California’s Lost Coast. Taken in the middle of a 3,000+ mile road trip in the summer of 2013. Second shot is from the 2010 Shasta Snow Trip. The blue and white ’65 Riviera Camper is mine. Taken at about six in the morning on day one of three-day off-road spit-window Bus only adventure. Wheel… Read more »

And those photos uploaded in reverse of the order I thought they would … Description one is for shot three, description two is for shot one, and description three is for shot two.
Damn.

We just finished restoring it this summer, and what better first trip than to take it to it’s birth country 🙂

Last autumn I bought my first car. A little kashmirbeige BMW E30 316i 2 door saloon. This summer I made my first roadtrip from Groningen (north of the Netherlands) to Paris and Bordeaux. This is my car in St. Emillion best known for its great wines. Around 3000 kilometers mostly tarmac but also some gravel roads/off-road without any problemo’s :). Great car!

Roughly 7 years ago My son was working a new job in Colorado. I live in California, but grew up in Colorado, so I have family there. My son had been visiting relatives and had discovered that I hadn’t been back for a visit for well over 5 years. He also knew I was in the search for an old Fiat X1/9. He found one (It didn’t run very well), he bought it, and told me I could have it if I came back to visit my family. So I showed up with a suitcase full of tools and car… Read more »

Sunday morning, sky is blue up in the Australia High Country. Day two of Alpine Chapter’s Le Tour De North East annual weekend away. A keen bunch of Alfas ready to tackle the challenging roads that will take us all the way to the top of the Australian High Country. This photo taken in front of the Blue Duck Inn 2012 by Paul Edwards. The days driving that followed was the best time l have ever had at the wheel of my 1989 Alfa 75ts, complete with 290,000ks on the clock and she just wanted more, what a car! what… Read more »

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo obligatory red on black with early offset with original Fuch wheels.

Photograph taken at Assateague Island, VA two days after driving from Central Ohio – Ocean City, MD non-stop overnight after replacing the cylinder head a day before the trip. The car performed flawlessly and the R134a conversion kept us cool enough. It was over 1,500 miles time we headed back to Ohio.

Just out of contest… From today. Lot of enthusiasm and fun behind these pictures… (1987 190E 2,3 8v)

As far north as you can go on the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand.
Simply amazing roads… Especially in a Golf GTi!

Yep! Well spotted!

Sadly, the old boy’s no longer with us. But he made a fantastic 15 years.

Was he a “king size”? 15 years is really nice… We have two in family – one king harlequin and one white toy. At first poodles seems odd to me, but their nature is really cool, I love them! 🙂

Sorry to others for non-car spam. 🙂

Officially there’s no “king” size, he’s a standard (and was a champion, and has a fine heritage and progeny too), but was a large example. One of 3 we’ve had over the years. We’re in London now after living in New Zealand for all of our lives then being dog free for the first time in forever, so can’t really have another Standard but will be getting a mini or two in the next few months. Sound’s like you’ve got a great combination there!

A great road trip is usually memories supported by beauty shots of landscape with your precious car in the foreground. My trip through the US northwest was indelibly imprinted on the front of the car and was captured in one shot that said it all. Like a kid with a big grin after stealing home pie eyed and guilty of all sorts of mayhem.

Seeing as how the photos have long since been lost a description will have to do . Driving from Nice to Monte Carlo in 81 with my then former French Playboy centerfold girlfriend in her dads Matra Murena he’d loaned us overlooking the Mediterranean from a particularly photogenic turn out . With her sitting in the car .. door open of course . The car was a looker … she was a looker … and the view framing it all was stunning

Picture from picking the car up for the first time… This was from a stop in Chattanooga, TN…. Was a 1200 mile trip from Mississippi to just outside Manhattan in New Jersey.

While on a trip to Scotland. My 1974 (?) Gran Torino, 460 Police interceptor engine at the Northern most part of Scotland, almost as big as the last house in John.O.Groats and on the cliffs. (and yes, I know that this engine is not normally in there, but is was a ball)
