Three Perfect Days: The California Coast

California’s famously picturesque Highway 1 doesn’t disappoint. The route is a grand procession of soaring cliffs, ragged promontories, and vast sloping hills, the road bending beside an ocean of brilliant blue, passing lovely little towns along the way. Inland, you have the wild beauty of wine country, cultivated by some of the best vintners in the state. Continue south and you hit Santa Barbara, home to upscale restaurants and magnificent taco shacks. There is so much to see and do on this journey, you feel you could make it time and again—and make it new. In any event, it would be fun to try.

    Saw this article on a recent flight and failed to take the magazine with me. Much as I enjoy the Pacific coast and Highway 1, what interested me more was the car! There could not have been a better choice for this article than the 300SL in that particular color.
