Hitting the open road for an all-out adventure is one of the great joys in the life of any gearhead. Hitting the open road when filming a new series for Hemmings while taking one of your dear friends along for the ride, well that’s something else entirely. Yet that’s what happen in early April when I teamed up with automotive journalist, host, and author Elana Scherr on a 3,500 plus mile road trip in a completely untested 1981 Chevrolet Suburban for Road to Improvement, an upcoming program that’s set to launch on the Hemming YouTube channel later this year.
