Best Summer Cars

Summer, come rain or shine, brings a range of opportunities and events; the timeless afternoon BBQ stretching into the early hours of the next morning, beach combing with the kids, or making a getaway with your loved ones to sunnier climbs abroad. However, with the continuous grey drizzle and morose skies, the summer holidays have somewhat sneaked up upon the majority of Brits this year. Needless to say; it’s time to get planning! Whether organising your perfect vacation away or your staycation in England’s green and pleasant land; we have the best summer cars to add that little touch of midsummer magic to your holiday! 

 

 

For sunshine and picnics…

With a retractable fabric roof, the classic MG is the perfect choice for cruising down country lanes in search of a good picnic spot. The car offers a classic chic; with a wooden veneer dashboard, curvaceous lines and the option to mount an old wooden chest in which delicious summer treats can be safely transported. 

What should you pack?

For the ultimate romantic picnic for two, prepare foods such as; fresh baguettes stuffed with pulled-ham, crispy lettuce and salad cream; scotch eggs and the obligatory cream teas!

Where should you travel?

The hustle and bustle of modern day life often disguises the fact that, in England, it doesn’t take long to stumble upon an area of outstanding natural beauty. Often such areas have designated picnic spots where you can enjoy sumptuous foods whilst enjoying the stunning panoramic views.

 

When attempting Route 66…

For those who love to travel in the summer months; Route 66 spans numerous bucket list destinations (as well as being a bucket list item itself!). From the awe-inspiring wonders of the Grand Canyon to the World’s Largest Totem Pole in Oklahoma; what better way to travel to such site than in a convertible Ford Mustang? With its bold features, purring engine and copious amounts of horse power, this muscle car is at home, eating up the miles of open road stretched out before it.  

How to make the best of your travels

Before you attempt to complete Route 66, you should draw up a simple, but effective plan. Many lucky individuals have had the chance to explore the wonders this historic route has to offer, but have simply driven straight on by, owing to a lack of awareness as to what attractions featured en route. 


But I heard Route 66 doesn’t exist anymore?

Although parts of the original Route 66 was decommissioned, according to smithsonianmag.com, 85% of Route 66 still remains drivable. The 2,400-mile highway, starts in Chicago and passes through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before ending in Los Angeles. Although the highway has admittedly seen better days; with its decaying roads and run-down motels, others would argue that this somewhat rugged appearance adds to its rustic charm. Furthermore, many destinations that feature alongside route 66 still boasts once-in-a-lifetime attractions. 

 

For a day at the seaside…

British Summers are synonymous with a day at the seaside (even if it is rainy!). With some beautiful coastlines that welcome surfers of all abilities, ice cream vans and fish and chips parlours; is there anything better than a day at the beach? To create this classic holiday appeal, and to do things properly; it has to be an old-style VW Campervan. We’re sorry, T5 models – you may have the buttons, bells and whistles, but you just don’t have the old-time charm of the 1950s-1967s and 1967-1979 campervans!

On sun-kissed days, where the glorious blue sky is cloud-free; grab your bucket and spade! Whether you’re 8 or 80, everyone loves building a sand-castle, creating sand angels and rock-pooling.  And who could forget the delicious warming pasties after a morning of bodyboarding, surfing or swimming in the sea? 

We have no experience surfing or bodyboarding, but would like to try it out?

With a little research, you should be able to find a surf school nearby which offers lessons. From complete novices to experts, most schools cater to all abilities, and can provide you with hire equipment.
