Linkage #012 — Road Trip

The 12th issue of Linkage is now on the press. It will be mailing to subscribers later this month.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside:

Donald Osborne defines what a road trip really is — and what it should be.

From a Porsche blizzard to 28 quarts of oil across the American southwest, Linkage readers share some of their favorite road trip stories.

Jay Leno finds the joy of the halfway point.

Zak Brown dives into McLaren’s special Indy 500 livery in celebration of the company’s 60th year.

Rich Taylor discovers the fountain of youth in a 1964 Corvette race car.

Greta Gooding takes us to the moment she fell in love with visceral Brass Era touring.

Steven Harris fords rivers in Mongolia and bounces over rocks in Kazakstan in a Porsche 356 on his way from Peking to Paris.

Nick Jaynes leads a group of overlanding 4x4s well off the beaten path into Oregon’s Owyhee country, where he finds his own limits under ominous approaching storm clouds.

Colin Comer meets the CHP while doing twice the speed limit in a 289 Cobra with tags that expired in 1984.

Tommy Lee Byrd takes us inside The Great Race — a nine-day adventure that spans the U.S.

Howard Koby road trips to The March Meet — where nitro-fueled altereds still run down the quarter mile.

Stephen Serio underlines the importance of the road trip — and why you should get busy living right now. 

And we take a look at this year’s spring auction records, Gooding & Company’s $72.6m Amelia Island event, Bonhams’ well-worn and well bought 1951 Jaguar XK 120, RM Sotheby’s final (and best) Amelia Island auction and Mecum’s all-business Glendale auction in March.
