    TFL is hard at work planning this epic trip and documentary web-series.  We still need your help. We want to tell the unknown story of Czech Auto maker Tatra with an epic trip from Prague, CZ to Pebble Beach, CA in a 50-year-old Tatra 603.

    This year the world’s most prestigious auto show will feature classic Tatra cars in a special class in 2014. We plan to document the story of Tatra by driving a Tatra 603 from the car’s home country to the trim and neat fairways of the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

    Tatra is the third oldest car manufacturer in the world after Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot, yet if you were to ask your neighbor, chances are they’d never heard of the storied Czechoslovakian car and truck builder. Yet Tatra, and their chief engineer, Hans Ledwinka, played a direct and influential role in the design of the car that you and your neighbor are driving today.

    In fact, Tatra has such and important role in the design of today’s cars that the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is celebrating the historical Czech Automotive brand with a special class this year.

    We will be announcing more updates on a regular basis: details of our route and who the guest drivers will be.  You can also go to Prague to Pebble or Bust page for more details.

    1. I like it. I’ve always been a fan of most classic cars and I can definitely add this one to the list. A rear wheel drive, rear engine car from the ’60’s? That’s something I don’t see everyday, excluding the Volkswagen Beetle and a few others. What were the specs on the engine? It looked like it was a 6+ litre, SOHC V-8. I think that car earned a $25,000 price tag, if not more!
