      Great car.
      Great trip.
      Great photos.
      Great presentation (people rarely take the time to uniformly crop all their images for a post)

      Great pics - even greater since it was with with film and not a digital!
      Good luck in Alaska and your new adventures.

      Big thumbs up from a fellow '00 BRP 2.5RS owner...well, former owner. I was the original owner and had the car for nearly 9 years. To this day it is still my favorite car I ever owned. Those GC8's will always be near and dear to my heart
      I'm jealous. I never get to drive much any more. Your trip covered more miles than I drive in a 2 or 3 year span.
      Great photos too. Love the B&W ones especially.

      I've been visiting VWV/TCL for something like 9 or 10 years now. Every day I see more of the same lowerit/coolstorybro/omgblueFJpic/yourcarsucks nonsense and wonder why I bother. But every once in a while a post comes along that makes me think "AAAaahhhh that's why..." And this is one of those posts.

      Alaska has yellow plates? Do they have a slogan on them?

      My friend used to have a 2.5 RS, was such a great car. Had all the bolt ons for NA performance, cams, tune, headers, exhaust, intake, clutch, flywheel, suspension, brakes etc. The car was so well balanced and sounded SO awesome.

      Last frontier iirc.
      We see them occasionally down here in OR. Surprisingly normal cars too.
