    So no, I didn’t actually apply because, let’s face it, I’m not witty enough to get a casting call and I am one English accent short of having a chance.

    What I did do is create my own (and extremely low budget) mini-series: it’s my search for the greatest driving road in the Alps. I’m the driver, videographer, writer, and editor; what I’m getting at here is don’t expect a Brian DePalma masterpiece. What I am sharing is a tour from my own bank of dreams: 5 epic roads over 4 countries and I review each one in detail along the way. I’ve also included pure driving videos for flare.

    Thank you to Steeda and CJ Pony Parts for the decals to give my Mustang some pop, my bud Don for doing the chase camera views and being my battle buddy on the trip, and to Mustang6g for being the grand instigator of inspiration in making this fantasy turn to reality.

    Enjoy :beer:
