All awesome ideas I love old broncos and FJs and you can never go wrong with a cool old jeep but I think all would be a little out of my price range as would the vw thing.

I miss it but it was a 70 and I wanted an older one. They sure are easy to work on.......most days.

I've driven through there many times on my way back and fourth between WA and CA.
When I'm here I visit there and when I live there I visit here......but no more I-5 for me, I like to drive up the coast now even in the winter.
I have friends and family from Olympia to Snohomish and plan to spend some time in WA visiting them all as soon as the weather turns sunny up there

I think a bug or a Pacer (I like all old AMCs) would do well. But an old CJ Jeep would be pretty easy to find and maintain. If I got something to tow behind I think I would probably opt for a Jeep, but not with the motorhome I have now. Of course my Saturn is a former toad, so it probably wouldn't be too hard to convert it back to that status if needed.

Probably the most iconic (IMO) would be a restored Plymouth Valiant of the same year as your MH.

Love that Benz! We pull our '02 Caravan on a Master Toy tow dolly. I will never forget,however, waiting for the light to change at Venable St. & hwy's 19/98 in Crystal River, Fl. There in front of me passes the longest Monaco I had ever seen towing a Rolls Royce. Color and stripes the same of course. It was a sight to behold!

How about a 70's era Triumph Spitfire or an MG?
'Course, you'd have to stop every 100 miles or so and fix it.

Hey I resent that statement!!! I got 150 miles on MG before I had to fix something.
