Two of my favourite roads:

Highway 163 from Kayenta towards Monument Valley, taken in 2005.

Highway 190 from Panamint Springs towards Death Valley, taken in 2013.

Thanks for another great magazine Ross.

Me struggling to keep a big cheesy grin off my face driving a 440+6 4-speed while trying to recreate a scene from "Vanishing Point". Very Happy
