Can a 1968 Tatra 603 drive from Prague, Czech Republic to Pebble Beach, California for the 2014 Monterey Week automotive extravaganza?
It’s equipped with a 2.5-liter V8 with hemispherical heads that is air-cooled. The engine and the four-speed manual transmission are located in back. There are 17 linkages between the column shifter and the transmission. It has no air conditioning or radio. What can go wrong?
The car and the team made the journey, but not without a few setbacks, sweat, and tears. The journey is about overcoming challenges that are thrown at you, and the entire team made a success.
2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was featuring the Tatra class, but they did not allow TFLcar to join. Still, the car had its moment of limelight at the Legends of the Autobahn show.
Watch the “Prague to Pebble or Bust?” short film to trace the entire journey. If you are interested in more details, then take a look at the individual episodes of the journey. TFLcar produced over two dozen episodes.
