What Do You Drive on Your Last Drive?

Illustration for article titled What Do You Drive on Your Last Drive?

Lots and lots of you fine, upstanding readers have heeded the call and mailed in good QOTD fodder. And we'll get to those next week. But, for today, the last remaining day of Al Navarro week, well, you know where this is going. Luckily, Al doesn't disappoint. Have a read:

It's 2024, and America has done and gone fascist on us. You're on death row for reckless hoonage and instead of giving you a last meal, you get a last drive. Name the car and the road.

See? That Navarro kid is pretty sharp. But, this is all too easy. For our last drive we'd get a big, black mid-80s topless Dodge Power Ram. The road? The island of Manhattan will do nicely. What are they going to do, kill us? You?

I think I'm on record somewhere (could be at the [USA7s.org] site or list) as saying I actually prefer the Cherohala to the Dragon in terms of pure driving pleasure and scenery.

As you no doubt know (being a semi-local), the Dragon is very very twisty. Relentless even. Whereas the Cherohala has more sweepers and allows you to get up to speed a bit more...all the while rewarding you with great views.

As for choice of weapon? The Se7en is perhaps the perfect Deal's Gap rocket. I bet if they ever closed it off for a hillclimb (never happen), a well-prepped Se7en driven by someone like Darryl "Killboy" Cannon would take FTD. But then again, the TT's 4WD allows you to get on the throttle faster and harder...and the ABS is a bit of a safety net. I actually never took the Cat on the Cherohala at our meet...was too pooped to drive much. But we certainly had fun in the AM runs on the Dragon, as Jonny has already documented:[jalopnik.com] And the "non-parade" of over 40 Se7ens nose to tail was simply amazing.

Apologies for the somewhat off-topic ramble...
