Many people navigate one of America’s most scenic roads, California Highway 1, with a rental. Some even pay extra to choose a convertible (a red one). Choices just got even better with the fleet at Monterey Touring Vehicles.
Now you can joyride on one of the most scenic portions—from Monterey to Big Sur—in a DeLorean, the “Back to the Future” time-machine with gull-style doors. Pit stops would turn into a pleasurable diversion.
Approximately 30 classic cars comprise the fleet; that means, if the DeLorean isn’t you, there are choices. Nothing says California hippie like the 1961 Volkswagen Samba Microbus with 23 windows; whereas you won’t be able to say much of anything when the pedal hits the metal on the 1957 356 Speedster Tribute Porsche, outfitted with a modern 1800cc engine.
By the way, with backdrops varying from Pacific ocean and cliffs to lighthouses and bridges, this style road trip just blew up Instagram.
Prices start at around $200 for a half day. Cars are delivered with a full tank to your hotel (and picked up there, too).
They say that it’s not the destination but the journey … in the 1938 Rolls-Royce Phantom III.
