1,000 Miles in a Factory Five, Seattle to Monterey!Posted on August 15th, 2014
“All I can say is, if you’ve never experienced motoring like this, you have NO IDEA what you’re missing.” – Arthur St. Antoine, “Epic Drives”
When Arthur St. Antoine called me up and asked me if we had any fast cars for him to drive, I smiled and reached for the keys to the Mk4 Roadster. Then he told me he needed to take the car from Seattle all the way down to Monterey, CA; a trip of about 1,000 miles! I smiled even bigger because there is no better way to get to know how great a Factory Five is than to drive it on a long trip.
The newest episode of “Epic Drives” follows Arthur and my Factory Five 5.0L Coyote-powered Mk4 Roadster along a fantasy route through some of the most beautiful country on the planet. Arthur hits rain, snow, and perfect sunny California weather on this epic drive. Check it out!
The section of Arthur driving full tilt through the back roads of Napa is AWESOME! Go to 15 minutes and 30 seconds into the show.
