Big Sur and a BMW M3

Green BMW E36 M3 in Big Sur PCH CA-1

California State Route 1 — alternatively the Coast Highway, Cabrillo Highway, Pacific Coast Highway, or the PCH — is perhaps one of the ultimate drives in the US.  That is if you’re not stuck behind 10 cars trailing a diesel soot-spewing 1970s Winnebago with about even odds of summiting the next small rise.

Photo details: A then new-to-me BMW E36 M3 in Big Sur back in 2007 during a road trip from SF to LA.  Shot on a crappy point-and-shoot hence the low resolution.  Edited via Photoshop to remove any indication of the vacation traffic that frequently snarls what is an otherwise amazing driving route.  You can click on the photo for the full resolution version.
