There appears to be a lot of 170's, 171's, and 172's in Florida. It might be fun to have a get together at a central location, meet for lunch and have a drive like the "Sheep Chases" in England.

Any thoughts. I know I would love to do it on the Blue Ridge Parkway but most can not take that much time.

I-4 and 27 is pretty much centrally located. The back roads around there are nice and not well travelled. More suggestions.......

we want to show our cars off as we ride, no? we want 4 lane then, not 2 lane (1 road going each way, tough to pass, etc) and well travelled

I am more than happy to help.

4 lanes may be fine for cruising but back roads are always more fun. Unfortunately we have no mountains with curvy roads here.

Maybe some good back roads to Palm Beach with a night at the Breakers

Key are a beautiful drive but slow. Flagler Hotel in Key West is great and one of my favorites. Key West Hotels- Florida Keys Luxury Resort- Casa Marina A Waldorf Astoria Resort.

true, keys are nice,but overnight anywhere, for me , is out of the question, and based on our last get together of just 2 vehicles, there is the 'can't make it/oops i have to cancel last moment factor. a quick 'blue man group'/road trip type excursion is preferable for me. many local sites in central/west florida from dinosaur world to flights of fantasy/knights of the round table dinner theater are out there. just my 2 cents
