In Part Two of the latest cross-country Automotive Traveler adventure, Richard Truesdell and canine companion Savannah take the mid-sized Kizashi on a tour of some of their favorite spots along the Mother Road.
Waking up to a steady drizzle in my room at the Motel 6 in Effingham, Illinois, I had lost track of time. My watch said 8:30 a.m., and I had wanted to be out the door and on the road by eight. Another late start, or so I thought. I had passed into the central time zone the previous evening, so local time was just 7:30 a.m. I was actually on schedule for a change; I just didn't realize it.
This today, like those to follow, would be a marathon drive: a 600-mile, 10-hour haul to Oklahoma City. My friend Mark Fletcher had discovered another unusual Hurst-built car, this one a 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Is there a recurring theme here? Yes, Mark has a deep interest in Hurst cars.
