The Dodge Challenger I picked up at the airport was big, black and, even with the 3.6 litre V6, quite powerful. http://www.dodge.com/en/challenger/performance/
Not the sort of car in which to run a red light, it looks like you have to be a cop to drive one of these things. Also not the sort of car in which to get lost in a lonly Californian canyon. Not having satellite navigation seemed like a sensible idea at the time, also not having a map, or directions, and just a vague sense of where I was heading.
Day one of my latest road trip was a long journey into nowhere. Perfect start to the backroads of Califronia ~ perhaps I should have stayed on the freeway. My excuse is that I had been travelling for a whole long day ~ almost 6,000 miles ~ and I was a little sleepy.
At least I survived it.
