I've had my 1960 TR3 since 1969. MY wife Marianne and I dated in this car and she married me anyway! In that time, I've made a few modifications to it. Some of you may know it as "The Blue Meanie", the TR3 with the tilt up hood, Brooklands windscreens and covered back "seat". In addition, I write a monthly column for Autobooks magazine called "Road Trippin'" and have put several of the columns into a book of the same name. It's available through my website or Amazon. On top of that, I've been the head disorganizer of an annual replacement drive for the old No Frills Iron Bottom. For details, email me.

The Central Coast has begun to seriously rival the Napa Valley as a serious wine growing region. The wineries produce the usual suspects (Cab...

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy In California, we are blessed with some of the best backroads driving in the world. The variety is endless. Long tire-shedding desert roads to see just HOW fast she’ll go, tight, twisty mountain roads for the handling freaks, and some of the most gorgeous and varied scenery imaginable. Constant Reader will know that in particular, we have a fondness for the Central Coastal area. The number of drives we’ve chronicled here may seem obsessive, but, there...

Drat. Hoist on me own petard. Trapped by the Law of Unforeseen Circumstances. Painted meself into a corner. Sigh. Since I did the November column on Thankfulness, and the December one on Christmas Wishes, I suppose you are all expecting this one to be on Resolution for the New Year. Usually, I don’t, that way I can keep one, the resolution to not make resolutions. But here I am, stuck by my own cleverness (?). OK, I’m bowing to the inevitable. 1)Fix all the niggily little things that hav...

In keeping with the past couple of columns, I’m sticking with the holiday theme. This isn’t just a personal wish list (if you really want to thank your faithful scribe, get him a gift card from Moss Motors!, just send it to Autobooks and I’m sure Tina will forward it along. After all, Moss doesn’t carry Alfa parts, so it won’t get diverted!) but more of a selection of wishes and dreams that I’m sure all of us Road Trippers share. 1) Reasonably Stable Gas Prices! It’s gotta be...
