Here at AmericanMuscle,
most a few of our employees have “less-than-perfect” driving records. This is probably because we’ve been on the lookout for the darkest, fastest, highest roads in the US; and sometimes this calls for a little bit of “spirited driving”! During our search, we stumbled upon these 5 roads that were just begging for us to lay down some fresh rubber:
Number 5. Florida’s State Road A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Highway
There’s no questioning that the southern Florida coast is one of the finest spots in the country for beach bodies! And by beach bodies we mean both classic/vintage and brand new Mustangs! For years, it has been a landmark “cruising” spot for all automotive enthusiasts–every car imaginable can be seen on this stretch of road from Key West through Jacksonville. Whether you’re cruising in 4th gear or burning the tires at every stop light, it’s hard to find a better road to drive on.
4.) Montana’s Beartooth Highway – The All American Road
11,000 feet above sea level and chiseled into mountain terrain, you’ll find a high performance enthusiast’s dream! This two hour scenic drive has plenty of potential for Mustang drift footage for those brave enough to try. Montana’s US Highway 212 has the most amazing twists and turns through what seems to be walls of snow and rock. Make sure to check with the ranger’s station before taking on this voyage, as it has been known to snow even in the summer.
3.) Nevada’s US Route 50
Coined as “The Loneliest Road in America,” this desolate stretch of road across Nevada has AmericanMuscle employees tempted to drive cross-country to rip down this road with our cars! One look down the straight, smooth portions of the Route will be enough to push any Mustang enthusiast to redline. Remnants of ghost towns and even the Pony Express Route are visible throughout many stretches of Route 50. And don’t worry, there are plenty of twisting canyon roads to grab gears through, too.
2.) Virginia/North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Parkway
Fear not, East Coast ‘Stang lovers! There is a winding road begging for a stampede that stretches the Blue Ridge chain of the Appalachian mountains. From Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Shenandoah’s Skyline Drive, this is one road that will have your heart pumping in Ford firing order fashion.
1.) California’s Pacific Coast Highway SR-1
Highway 1 is without a doubt our favorite road in the country for pure adrenaline-filled Mustang junkies. If skating along the edge of a continent, peering down steep cliffs into the Pacific Ocean at 80mph is your kind of party, look no further! Plan your California coast-line experience and let that ‘Stang of yours out so you can see why we found SR-1 to be the #1 Wild Pony Ride in the nation.
