In June I received an invite to join a group (who I didn't know) for a cruise through the mountains of northern New Mexico. I drove my 1973 Citroen SM to Santa Fe to join up and was surprised to see about a dozen Porsches, a Ferrari, 2 Lotus, a Corvette C7 Z06, a Challenger, and a couple of other high-performance cars. The Citroen was the oldest car there; several drivers told me I was being pretty brave. Anyway, I was determined not to be the guy that slowed everyone else down. We drove north from Santa Fe & hit the back roads (speed limits were optional). I really put the Maserati engine to the test and drove the car hard along the narrow, twisting road. Proud to say I not only kept up, I actually lost one of the Porsches (the driver said he couldn't catch up to me). The car ran flawlessly and I think the other guys & gals were impressed that it did so well. We ended up at one of the driver's private collection: Mercedes Gullwing, Lancia Zagato, 2 Aston Martins, '62 Lincoln Continental Convertible, Porsche, and more. Great day of driving and camaraderie.
