I have done 3 of those, Lombard St., the Road to Hana, and the Big Sur Coast Highway. Unfortunately, none of those in the Challenger. Not likely to ever ship it to Maui, but might get back on the other two on a future road trip.

The one road that has to be on any top ten list is the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park Montana. This has to be one of the most scenic roads ever. If you have never been, it is a must see.

Since we live in Florida , of course our first road trip in our Challenger of 4 months , was to Key West .this past January
You cross 42 bridges on the 3 plus hour ride from Miami to Key West .Its mostly 40 to 55 MPH , some passing zones where you can open it up .
A fun ride sunroof open ,windows down , music loud , stop at a tiki bar half way for lunch
Funny we saw lots of mustangs and Camaros ,, very few Challengers

I love that drive to Mile 0. That was the first drive I did with my Challenger after returning from being stationed in GermNy this last time, two summers ago. Well, actually it was driving from JAX port down to West Palm. Here's a photo on Duck key just before 7 mile bridge. I hate when I drive some great roads and I'm not in my car. Such is life when you have the wife and kids to tote around and too much "stuff" for vacation.Click image for larger version

5 Out of 10.

Route 66, Lombard St, Road to Hana, Angeles Crest Hwy, Big Sur Coast Hwy

There is more roads I have been on that area equally if not more enjoyable.

Santa Ynez wine tasting, Vancouver to Whistler in the Winter, Pahrump, NV to I-15 back road

Top 10 Best Roads to Drive in the US

I was wondering how many Challenger owners have taken the Coast Highway that starts around Morrow Bay and goes up through Big Sur to Carmel here in California? I've taken that beautiful road on my Harley many times and it has a lot of tight curves and twists. I keep hearing how big the Challenger is so I was wondering what the driving impressions are like with the Challenger on that type of a road.

I've driven it 5 or 6 times. Going north is easier and the car handled it great. Southbound is scarier with the cliff in sight all the time.

I am going to have to try it out after my Challenger arrives next week. I love that road on a bike. Thanks for letting me know.
