Default 36 days and 8,500 miles in a 356



Just saw this story about a couple who took a 356 on the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge on the homepage. If they're still together after 36 days and 8,500 miles, these two are made for each other!

Back in 2014, I covered the Gumball Rally, but this adventure makes that trip sound like a trip to the grocery store.

Default Peking to Paris

Their Blog was interesting. Quite a challenging run. Special engine with 7.5 CR for the poor quality gas, Spare parts emergency shipped to Russia or someplace for repairs. etc etc etc. This will give you some idea of the route:
