My wife and I are a couple of crazy Brits with a 1970 Aston Martin which we drove 18000 miles from London to Sydney in 2005 with some friends in old cars. (And yes it is the same colour as the James Bond one!) Next year we will come to N America driving from Panama to Alaska.
Since it will cost a fortune to ship the car back from Anchorage to the UK, we are considering driving down to Seattle after we finish (very end of June) and leaving the car there for a few months. The plan would then be to fly home and return later to drive the car over to New England to join in with an Aston Martin tour over there in the Fall.
We are interested in hearing from those who have driven either of these routes to recommend how long we should allow, what route we should take and where to stop off on the way. We are interesed in driving through great scenery and avoiding traffic hot spots. However, when we get to Anchorage we will already have been on the road for two months and will want to get to Seattle quite quickly and via a different route from on the way up. (Our route north is Salt Lake City, Ketchum, Polson, Banff, Grand Prairie, Fort Nelson, Watson Lake, Whitehorse, Dawson City, Tok, Fairbanks, Anchorage).
We also need to keep the route reasonably direct since the Aston is a great long distance car but you are lucky if you get more than 16 mpg and there is a limit to the number of servicing items I can bring with me.
