My older brother recently passed away and willed his Mustang SVT Cobra to my 17 year-old son. The car is in Houston and we live in the Chicago area, so we plan to drive it back home.
We'll fly in and spend the night in Houston then depart early AM. Dates haven't been set yet -- probably will coincide with President's day to pick up a holiday.
Here's my tentative route.
From Houston, north on US 59 to Texarkana
I-30 to Ark 7
North on Ark 7 to Hot springs
Overnight in Hot Springs
North on Ark 7 to I-65
North on US 65 to I-44 (Springfield MO)
NW on I-44 to Rolla
Overnight in Rolla
I-44 to St Louis
Visit the Arch, maybe Boeing/McDonnell
I-55 to Chicago
I've included Ark 7 based on reports of its scenic beauty and twisty roads that should be fun in the Cobra.
Any suggestions for accommodations/B&B in Hot Springs and Rolla, or other points of interest?
Thanks in advance
