I am just planning a road trip to Bulgaria from France. Checking with Google Maps the total distance is 2500km.
My wife will be driving her yellow 1997 20VT with a roof box on!!! Not a great look with the roof box on, but we need the space for luggage. I will be driving our much older 1990 Saab 900i convertible with our 3 dogs on board.
We have decided that we are in no rush so will take 10 to 14 days to get there. I was just wondering if I should check the oil or just go for it and loose the coupe paranoia for a couple of weeks?
The plan is to leave France around the 13th October and get to Burgas on the Black Sea around the 23rd ish.
Looking forward to the trip. We are used to long road trips, but usually not quite this long. The poor old Saab has done several 1000km trips in the last 12 months. Just a clutch to change before we leave, but the Coupe is ready to go now.
Probably stop in Chamonix for a couple of days, Verona for a couple of days and several days at a friends place in Rejeka, Croatia. From Croatia it will be a run through Serbia and into Bulgaria for a stop close to Sofia before the final drive to the coast.

Sounds like an awesome road trip, check the oil on both the engine and gearbox before you set off, and then as you say go for it, safe travels smile

Thanks Joe,
I hope you are up for posting items to Bulgaria instead of France from now on?
I doubt there are many coupe parts available there.

There arw very knowledgeable people about the Coupe in Bulgaria, as far as I know. Probably parts won't be so hard to find, but it's better not to find that out the hard way ;D

Sounds like a tremendous trip you have ahead of you especially in the coupé ofcourse.

We set off on a road trip to Italy from Scotland on Tuesday morning too.

Hi Rosso,
Hope you have a great trip to Italy. The weather is looking good for a while yet so should be a nice drive.

At the risk of veering off-topic, yes - DPD successfully delivered my engine mount from Poland yesterday afternoon in good time.


Thanks again, Photobucket.

Poland/ Bulgaria....clearly a good place to be if you like Coupes!

Enjoy your trip! And hope you have a no problems. Coupes tend to like the longer trips!

Regards
