What Is Your Dream Road?
There’s no shortage of good driving roads in the world. Sure, most roads are boring metropolitan commutes or crowded arrow-straight highways, but if you look hard enough there are countless hidden b-roads, sweeping mountain passes, and breathtaking beach cruises.
There are still those roads, however, that are greater than the rest. Roads that become legends in their own right, and are pilgrimages for the automotive faithful. Roads like the Stelvio Pass, or the Blue Ridge Parkway. These are the dream roads.
While my Pontiac would probably be more at home winding through Nevada’s Valley of Fire or among the redwoods on Highway 101 outside Klamath in Northern California, there’s really only one answer for me: Downtown Monte Carlo, following the Grand Prix route. Rounding the Hotel hairpin, turning through Portier and into the tunnel would be pure automotive nirvana.
Now it’s your turn. What is your dream road?
