Reetz Adventure

If there’s one thing that I’m an authority on it’s the road trip. You see I’ve traversed the United States in just about every way possible. From North to South, East to West and even diagonally and I’ve done it many, many times. Taking a road trip is one thing, but taking a road trip in an old car is something else entirely. New cars factor out many of the variables that make for a great adventure. Things like break downs, crappy mileage, lack of creature comforts and of course, the availability of parts. Now some of you may ask, “Why would you ever want to put yourself in a position where any of those things could come into play?” Well, the fact of the matter is this. Running an old car over thousands of miles gives you a sense of accomplishment.

It makes people stop, stare and ask questions and at days end, it’s also just more fun. The Reetz family recently took part in a West coast road trip in a 1930 Model A Coupe with a Miller OHV system and a carburetor and even though they brought a support vehicle you can bet it was one of the most memorable journeys they’ve ever had. Click through for the video and enjoy.

  1. Well if breakdowns, bad mileage, and lack of creature comforts add to the appeal of the cross-country road trip then that’s news to me. To each their own though. Personally I’d just love to have the time for a cross-country road trip anymore. If I can find the time I’ll opt for a modern car and find my ‘adventure’ in some other way.

    Thanks for the article!

    I was indifferent till I heard the purr of that old Ford. I’d totally drive for days on end with that sound to serenade me.
