To experience this great vehicle it is a good idea to drive it on winding roads away from major highways with heavy traffic. California is a paradise for car buffs as the dry climate makes car preservation a cinch. As well  there are many excellent routes for a fun drive. Historic Route 66 is one of such roads that is perfect for driving classic cars.

Southern California has many sand roads that are also great place to drive old cars. Huge dust cloud is part of the fun, neighbors do not mind as they do the same.
