Many moons back, I set up a scenario wherein you were going to drive around Italy with a beautiful woman, in a beautiful car. (For those of shorter memory, or who missed it, here’s the premise.)
So here’s another one, closer to home. The route I’ve chosen looks like this: east-west along U.S. Highway 50, then a cut south before Cinci and Lexington (because ugh), then
westward eastward along U.S. Route 70 to the Atlantic. Starting point is Winchester VA (red dot #1) and the finishing point is wherever Dot #2 is, on the coast.
I’ve done the U.S. 50 bit myself before, and it’s beautiful. I’ve done a little bit of U.S. 70 (from Nashville to Charlotte), and it’s also lovely. The road is twisty, the atmosphere romantic, and the scenery beautiful — from open fields to forested mountain passes.
The whole trip should take about 5-6 days, about 7 nights — because this isn’t a race.
So here are the choices (and remember, no switching around; the choices are as set down), and the women are as pictured, not how they would look today. And yes, assume a little romance along the way.
Choice #1: 1965 AC Cobra and Dita Von Teese
Choice #2: 1965 Shelby Mustang and Kelly Brook
Choice #3: 1956 T-bird and Lynda Carter
Choice #4: 1961 E-type and Liz Hurley:
Choice #5: 1959 Mercedes 190 SL and Laura Linney
Choice #6: 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB-4 Spider and Amy Adams
