Wife Bernadette joined the 912 and me for our full-length southbound journey on our westernmost U.S. highway from Tumwater WA to Los Angeles CA. Included are Oregon’s coastline, the giant California Redwoods and portions of “El Camino Real”, an important predecessor to U.S. Route 101 before the U.S. became a nation.
Just about any car can be a “highway Cruiser”. But what is it? It starts with a solid car in good condition that is then purpose-modified in certain ways to be safer, more reliable and more economically suited for long-distance (1,000+ miles) highway travel. Mike shows how it’s done, using his 1969 Porsche 912 as a primary example.
