The open road calls to every car enthusiast in different ways—a short trip down main street, a color tour of the county, an epic cross-country adventure. The saying goes “a tool for every job” which we take to mean there is a right—and therefore a wrong—car for each type of enjoyment.

Road trips are the most demanding on a vintage car. The conditions unpredictable, the running hours long, and if the car isn’t comfortable you just aren’t going to have a good time.
