Forbes and a few special guests play matchmaker, putting some magnificent stretches of blacktop together with some magnificent wheels. California is, of course, well represented among the entrants -- Danica Patrick likes Highway 1 around Monterey in a Bentley GTC, and Bob Bondurant likes Mulholland Drive in a 1965 'Stang. The rest of the country gets some love as well, though. A DB9 is best suited for the Las Vegas to Death Valley to Mammoth Lakes run (be sure to check out Dante's View in Death Valley). For the Easterners among you, the Tail of the Dragon in the Great Smoky Mountains, from Tennessee to North Carolina, is perfect for an '07 vintage Porsche Turbo. Being Forbes, all but one of the best rides are big money, but don't let that stop you -- the roads don't discriminate. Land Rover gets our vote for the best choice of best road: essentially, they chose Africa.

      I hope they don't let Edmunds pick the cars, or we'll be driving all GM cars. Yawn

      "Gee, practically everyone picked a car by their own company. Never saw that coming."

      I agree. I thought Forbes would have at least a freelancer or some celebrity write the article instead of asking industry types of their respective carmakers to choose the car. Lame, lame, f@cking lame.

      SC430's are bitch cars.

      Angeles Crest is the best road on earth!

      Roads? Where we are going we don't need any stinking roads.

      I like Land Rovers choice.

      Schnebley Hill Road in a G-D Dam Jeep!! (That's a great ride outside of Sedona, Arizona...trust me, you won't be disappointed.)
