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.

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy What’s two hours worth? Lot’s of answers to that. Time with a newborn? Priceless. At the higher minimum wage that people are screaming for? About $30. Before taxes. On a Road Trip? It’s the difference between a mind stultifying endless slog up the I-5 and the FAR more pleasant cruise up the 101. Two whole freakin’ hours longer. That’s it.

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy Before I get started, I have a shameless plug! Son of Road Trippin’ has been released! Yes, the Long Awaited Sequel to my first book, Road Trippin’ is now available. Autobooks will have copies as soon as they get printed, so get your copy NOW! OK, I’ll be honest. This trip is a Leap of Faith. Well, most of it is. We’d planned on this Road Trip to be our Annual Trek, but other things have come up and well, it’s gonna be delayed. No worries, YOU ...

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy Well, the dust has settled, the brakes have cooled, the radiators have stopped steaming and another successful Drive has ended. And what a drive it was. To close it all out, I thought a few random observations would be in order. First, the food. Oh. My, God. Did we eat. And eat. And EAT! First stop was in Buellton at (of course) Pea Soup Anderson’s. Never a bad idea. Their soup is hearty, the salads are fresh and are perfect for a mid-day nosh when y...

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy Day Three of our Further Adventures Along the Central Coast will involve the usual eclectic nature of California backroads and the best damn steak you’ve ever had! Yes, folks, that means Jocko’s in Nipomo. It’s not really that far away, so you can sleep in, get a small breakfast (save room for STEAK!) and take a leisurely pace. I’ve talked about Jocko’s before, but it bears repeating. The place has been there since 1898 or so, Jocko sold boo...
