Travel: This Classic Rally Through Montana Is Absolutely Jaw Dropping

This Classic Rally Through Montana Is Absolutely Jaw Dropping

Photography by Will Brewster

When the photos came in, my jaw dropped. The Going To The Sun Rally in Montana is an annual event that often snakes into Canada, taking in the scenic, winding roads the region is known for. That makes the rally attractive to participants, of course, but beautiful classic cars and breathtaking scenery are rarely apart for long.

Here, photographer Will Brewster gives us a glimpse of what to expect on the rally, from wide-open vistas to close-ups of the details on participants’ cars.

It’s an event well-known to those in the know, and so fills up quickly. But the 2016 running is slated for September, and applications are open. If you want to experience some of the best roads in the West—or have your car captured on the road by Brewster—mark your calendar and send in your info.

My dear Mother lives in Cardston, Alberta, just 15 miles into Canada after the Peigan border crossing. I always try to take my Lincoln MarkVIII in summer and enjoy one run through the park per year while our M35X is better in winter. I sometimes become complacent and forget how beautiful this drive is. We start out with the misty waterfalls of the Columbia Gorge and the patchwork crop circles of the Palouse only to progress to the skirt around Lake Coeur d’Alene, then to the vistas of Lookout and Fourth of July, the twisty lane next to the Clark Fork after St. Regis, where the car is tested at high and low speeds. Then you are approaching Kalispell and the awesome views of Flathead, after which we the climb to the southern edge of Glacier Park, and the renown Izaak Walton Inn. Just when you think your astonishment meter has pegged, Old Chief Mountain comes into view, like an angry sentinel, daring you to approach. Thank heaven my Mom is waiting with hot home-made stew. Never gets old, even having driven this for almost 50 years.

Is that black coupe a Rolls-Royce? It is absolutely stunning.

Search for ‘Bentley Gooda Special’. It’s an interesting story and there’s some video of it at Goodwood.
