We’ve introduced the garage which I think is a proper way to introduce ourselves, but with that said a garage in itself isn’t what Drivers Soul is about. A garage is only metal, plastic, and other materials until you’ve bonded with the car. For me it’s nothing more satisfying then seeing them rumble back to life, decades after they were build, and once again do what they where meant to do. That’s why its in the name, because that’s when they are filled with memories and that’s when they become part of a story.
We don’t really care how you end up on the road in a classic car, just as long as you do. To help you do this we are going to share some articles on what to think of when going on a road-trip. It’s inspirational oriented and how we here at Drivers Soul prepare for the road. If you follow all these articles you are probably going to have the most trouble free road-trip you’ve ever heard of. The articles are a little on the OCD side, but regardless, if you follow all the tips or not (we don’t always follow all of them ourselves at times) we hope they help you feel that you are covering the most important areas and cheat where your confident.
To give a hint of whats to come. Topics to cover are reliability and planning, and planning for fun things at destinations. Including basic stuff like how to organize your luggage, and planning the travel route. Then adding inspiration for food you need, or can bring.
Making your car reliable before you start your trip. How to find or choose stop-overs on your route. Understand driving techniques for not cooking the engine, breaks, what is generally referred to as mechanical sympathy. If you’re a crew of people it might be worth discussing some roles and responsibilities during the trip. Capture some tips for photography because you are creating memories. Last but not least how to set up your car to make it reliable and relaxing to drive. It is definitely a detailed dissection of road-trips in this article series and you could argue it is on the OCD side, but the goal is to make you so prepared that you feel confident when you start driving the first leg of your road-trip.

Road’n roll is an article series about everything related to road-trips. Road-trips is at the core of what I love with car culture. It’s how I connect with a car, it’s how the car morphs into a vessel filled with memories, its how it makes it meaningful, it’s how it gets it’s character.
