                   Car Of The Month

March 2017 Car of the Month
Clay & Karen Crook - 1974 AMC Station Wagon (The Turd)


Clay & Karen Crook – 1974 AMC Station Wagon

I bought this car in May 2008 with 103,000 miles and really didn't want it.

However since it now has 130,000 miles put on in the last 9 years I like it as my daily driver.

I would like to paint the sides the same color as the driver's door. Maybe this year?

The rest of the car is in good shape and I now appreciate a hauling station wagon.

My daughter Kelly is responsible for the front license plate holder.

Four of the Best Places to Road Trip

Whether you are young, or young at heart, taking a road trip can be a great way to revitalize your mind and your entire outlook on life. One of the most popular road trip destinations has, for many years, been to travel down the infamous Route 66 that ran all the way from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California between 1926 and the mid 1980’s. While Route 66 is still a popular road trip today, especially the area between Arizona and California, there are numerous other roads still to be discovered by adventure drivers from coast to coast. Whether you want to plan a road trip to head to a car show or event or you just want to spend some time traveling and enjoy the beautiful scenery throughout the United States, here are four of the best road trips in the U.S.



White sand beach in Key West, Florida



White sand beach in Key West, Florida

Florida may be one of the most beautiful states on the east coast of the U.S. with the sandy beaches and beautiful Atlantic Ocean, but it is also one of the best places on the east coast to take a road trip. You can easily stretch your Florida road trip into a weeklong beach vacation by starting in Jacksonville and traveling right along the coastline down to St. Augustine. If you surf, then you may enjoy knowing that a late afternoon or evening surf is a great way to refresh yourself after the drive. For those that do not surf, spending a little time shopping along the way from Jacksonville or dining at one of the local sub shops or little lounges on the beach is also a great way to spend the day, meet new people and really make the most out of your day. From St. Augustine you can continue traveling south to head down to Palm Beach, which is roughly 250 miles away, and enjoy a lively beach atmosphere that stays illuminated day and night with tourists as well as locals enjoying the sand and surf from dawn until well after dusk. Less than 70 miles away is Miami where you will find beautiful beaches and plenty of music and dancing. If you enjoy authentic Cuban or Nicaraguan delicacies, you will love the food you find in Miami. Continue on past Miami to head to the furthest spot in Florida, Key West. Key West has many things to do ranging from some of the best shopping to the best bars, restaurants and entertainment. The area even boasts some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the America. Once you arrive you can spend a few days getting to know the beautiful area while listening to outstanding local music, catching a live theatre or music show or simply relaxing on the beach or at a hotel. Enjoy your road trip through Florida!



The Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee


The Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

If you have ever travelled to Tennessee, you most likely know how beautiful the Great Smoky Mountains truly are. Visitors to the area tend to fall in love and road tripping through the mountains is a great way to really see some of the most beautiful scenery in North America. If you really want to take in all of the natural beauty of the mountains, be sure to plan to spend no less than a week driving through the steep mountain roads where you can find a great wealth of historical attractions as well as natural attractions including water falls, vast forest land, rivers and lakes where the water is fresh and cold and a great deal of outdoor adventure. On this road trip you can enjoy camping or hiking or choose to stay a few days at a luxury mountain cottage or grab a spa treatment at a local hotel. There is plenty to do in the Great Smoky Mountains and best of all, this is an area that has something for every member of the family. Enjoy amusement parks? Dolly Parton’s theme park, Dollywood, is right in the heart of Gatlinburg and just next to Gatlinburg sits Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where you will find go cart tracks, amusement rides, bumper boats, arcades and much more to ensure fun for everyone traveling with you. When you need a great escape, Tennessee has exactly what you need.


Jolly Green Giant Statue, Blue Earth, Minnesota


Jolly Green Giant Statue, Blue Earth, Minnesota

Moving north from Tennessee and up to the Midwest, you cannot have a great adventure without heading to Minnesota. I-90, the longest interstate in the United States, runs directly through Minnesota where you will find the world’s largest statue of the green bean king himself, the Jolly Green Giant. This statue is more than 50 feet tall and has been one of the most popular road trip attractions in the state since its erection in the late 1970’s. Located in the quaint town of Blue Earth, you will also find quite a few other interesting things to do during your travels to the statue. Heading out of Blue Earth by taking I-35 North, you will be able to travel to Minneapolis where you can check out the Mall of America and see life size Legos, a real amusement park inside with great roller coasters, bungee jumping and other attractions or head over to Lake Calhoun or Lake Harriet and enjoy fishing or boating or even swimming when the weather is warm. If you want to take a dip in the lake, be sure to plan your Minnesota road trip after May and before September when the temperatures start dropping. Minnesota has long stretches of highway with great scenery on the sides of the road and has plenty of fun things to do for all ages throughout the entire state.


Pier on the coast in Santa Cruz, California


Pier on the coast in Santa Cruz, California

Anytime a road trip is planned in the state of California, the infamous song, "California Dreamin’" by the Mama’s and The Papa’s comes to mind. Why is that? Because California is the place where dreams come true for millions of young adults and young at heart adults each year when they travel to the state to see the scenery, check out the great shopping and maybe even try to catch a glimpse or two of a local celebrity. Just as the song says, you can find a warm climate to escape the cold of the Midwest or eastern area of the United States and while getting warmed up, why not enjoy a little adventure by road tripping across the state? If you do not want to drive all the way across the country to get to California, just hire an interstate auto shipper and have the car delivered while you take a quick flight. The best place to start will be sunny Los Angeles where you can take in plenty of shopping and get a good night’s sleep at a local hotel before venturing out on the road. From L.A., head north on 101 North until you hit Santa Barbara. In Santa Barbara you can check out the local winery, Santa Barbara Winery or head down to a local tavern and have dinner or a few drinks before heading to your hotel and resting. Once you spend time in Santa Barbara, head north on 101 to check out areas including Santa Maria, Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach or even further north to go to Santa Cruz and enjoy a day fishing on the pier, hitting the waves on your board or sitting in the sun sipping a drink or two before ending the road trip by hanging out at one of the beautiful hotels situated directly on the coastline. When it comes to road tripping in the U.S., California is a must see state with plenty of great adventure in virtually every city you drive through California.
