I leave bright and early tomorrow morning to join my fellow Northwest Automotive Press Association members on a two-day jaunt through Central Oregon in a string of fast cars. The organizers lined up everything from a Mazda MX-5 (that’s a Miata) to a Maserati, with the likes of Audi, Volvo, and a Dodge Viper thrown in.
The route is one of my favorite drives in Oregon, along Old McKenzie Pass. The bummer will be the wildfires raging near Mt. Adams in Washington. We’re supposed to drive home on the Washington side of the Columbia River, but it may be smoky and nasty, especially in a convertible.
