|Alex Roy recommended the southern route|
There is a reason Axis has slowed down recently: life decided a major change of direction was in order and I am moving from New York to...
That's right, Axis is going West Coast.
It will be fascinating to live in one of the cradles of automotive culture, the land that gave us the Zero Fucks Given RX7 and Singer 911s and where are both celebrated in their own ways.
California is also the land that will likely destroy the car as we know it, transforming most into robotic delivery appliances, possibly in my lifetime.
But not quite yet.
To me California will always be the impossible cool exemplified by Stephen Mitchell and his GTO hooning friends in the early 70s.
In the meantime, I look forward to meeting new friends, learning about local car culture, canyons and hopefully getting tips on California tracks like Willow Springs....waking up three hours earlier to watch F1.
And yes, I WILL drive Laguna Seca!
So if you see a funny looking M car running around, by all means come say hello and point me in the right direction.
