      A collection of stories from those who've done the best thing with their cars: drive them.

      If you don't already see a relevant thread, post the link here and I'll update this first post in chronological order. Please add comments in the original threads.

      Let me know if there are any errors.

      Although I will say, when I saw the other thread was locked I got excited. Thought maybe Emmett was back.
      I had a different reaction, one of confusion as to how the thread could have spiraled out of control overnight.

      Was pleasantly surprised though.


      Will definitely take tons of pics and do a thread on my annual Roadtrip to TN/NC next month!

      does this mean I should actually finish the utah thread?

      It's sort of the first trip I did with my, now, fiancee.

      As long as this post remains a sticky, the chances of someone reading that thread is 87%.
