Anyone here done it and are there any group drives of this, maybe a few from UK could join in, but would need to hire suitable detroit metal where?

You get the Detroit metal at the local Hertz, Avis or similar.

I drove San Diego to NY with some UK friends and did r66 from New Mexico to Kansas then went East. I bought my Vette there and drove it home, my friends rented Vettes and Mustangs from Hertz....

Yes did it in full

Fantastic. Hired a mustang and loved every minute. It's old empty roads and towns.

Take a decent map as when we went wasn't always well sign posted. We also did it in reverse then caught a slow train back. Which was equally good.

We Booked only the day ahead to stay so we didn't have to rush.

Utterly a must. There are lots of groups I think that do Organised stuff
