No Matter the Direction – Fall Beauty Abounds
Before fall is over, take your classic for one last ride before parking it in the garage for the winter. No matter which direction you go, autumn’s beauty is on display. Perhaps our list of breathtaking destinations will motivate you to hit the road and enjoy the explosion of colors. We also included our wish list of dream convertibles worthy of each leaf peeping spin. Let us know your favorite fall cruises and the cars you would drive in the comments. We look forward to reading them.
Rustic Charm and Autumn Colors in Brown Co., Indiana
State Road 46 is a 40-mile stretch of two-lane road that winds its way from Columbus, IN. to Bloomington, IN. It is the quintessential leaf-peeping jaunt complete with rustic churches, covered bridges and picturesque farmland. Now, picture yourself behind the wheel of a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder LWB with the top down and the fresh breeze chilling your skin. Pack a picnic lunch because you will not want this cruise to end.
A Blue Streak on the Blue Ridge Parkway
Referred to as America’s Favorite Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway winds 469 miles through awe-inspiring scenery in Tennessee and North Carolina. Enjoy panoramic seasonal colors from the end of September to mid-November. Straight from our classic convertible wish list, the 1967 427 Tri-Power Chevy Corvette may cause you to miss seeing the leaves. With a 560 hp power plant, it is the closest thing Chevy has to a racing engine in 1967. You will be a blue streak on the Blue Ridge Parkway in this Vette.
America’s First Wilderness
Twelve designated scenic byways make up America’s First Wilderness, Adirondacks, NY. With arteries winding through quaint farms and hamlets, these thoroughfares showcase some of the best leaf-peeping in the area. For these twisting, turning two-lane roads you need an extraordinary classic car with legendary handling. We choose the 1958 Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster because, who wouldn’t?
Slow Down and Enjoy the Show
From mid-August until Thanksgiving, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is awash in the warm sunset shades of orange and gold. With over 250 world-class wineries lining Hwy 126 along the McKenzie River, you may want to slow down and enjoy what this area has to offer. For the ultimate in classic comfort, we suggest sliding into the driver’s seat of a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. This rolling sofa on wheels is the perfect car to pull over, relax and enjoy the fireworks of fall color. Enjoy the show, folks.
