Headed up to Monterey.

Drivin the 02 svt up from socal to Monterey for the Cali Roots Festival, this will be my first long trip in my svt i got about 8 months ago, looks like its going to be 365 miles and about 6 hours. Soon as my manager lets me get out of here (work) ill be gone! probably just going to drive up the 5 most of the way there but on the way back i want to drive down the coast.

Any one like reggae music and goin to cali roots??

Hey man thanks for that. This was my first semi long drive in the SVT, iv been worried about reliability on these cars when i got it in the fist place. But this thing hummed like a bird the whole 800 miles!!! i was driving with my buddy in his mini cooper and we were tearing up the canyons...I do like this car.

If you take care of it, a SVT can last you a Loooooooong time. There are many members here who are well over the 200k mark. I know of one who went over 200k with a supercharger installed.

And yeah, these things are monsters in the twisties. Get some proper springs and struts and maybe a few sway bars, and you are basically go-kart status.
