    Can't decide if I should take the V on vacation?

    Kinda silly I guess, but thought i'd throw it out here for feedback. I'm kinda torn about taking it on vacation. Plans are about 7 days and going from Ohio, thru Kentucky, down to Nashville, Tenn. , over to Memphis, then down to Georgia, and back up to Ohio. I love driving the "V" but trying to weigh the pros and cons. Risk of break down in a rental would be a lot less trouble, make a call, get another car and you're back on the road, break down in the "V" and its a whole other slew of issues, but i didn't get this car to drive to shows and on weekends.

    Good grief..........take it on vacation.

    I drove my V from Tipp City, OH. to Houston, TX. and back last summer.

    I really enjoyed all the thumbs up along the way.

    Agreed. I drove from the top of the Texas Panhandle to the Gulf of Mexico and back. Great trip.

    The only reason why I wouldn't is if you had backseat passengers. We took it from Chicago to Dallas with 4 full size adults and it was snug. The backseat doesn't have much legroom. Other than that - drive it!!!

    I wanted to bust some joker's head on our trip.

    Very close call on a 2 lane highway. Someone in an old pickup decided to pass and go head on with us at 65 mph. Had to slam on the brakes and swerve right onto the shoulder.

    Got the hearts pumping.

    BTW tims parts were installed for all the trips. One trip had more upgrades but Tims parts are def holding up to miles I've putting on them. Now the V sits in her cave during her retirement stages. If anyone is wondering I've put over 50k on Tims upgraded parts.
