I'm overdue for a road trip and have business in Austin, Texas. This sounds like a job for the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport.

    You guys need to put the wipers out of their snow/service position. Seriously. RTFM.

    I grew up in El Paso from 0-22 and actually go to grad school here in Austin.

    If you're interested in a nice greasy burger, check out the local hallmark Frisco Burger 3111 N Yarbrough Dr El Paso, TX 79925. Owner has a locally iconic yellow corvette ragtop too.

    For some good home cooking, be sure to drop by The Monument Cafe in Georgetown, just North of Austin, and bring a big appetite! Enjoy the GS F-sport, there are some good twisty roads in Austin.

    Did you get the grill/bumper cover fixed yet?

    In 1980, on one of my first really long cross-country trips (7600 miles in 5 weeks), I ate at a Mexican restaurant in Las Cruces...run by a very, very German lady. She had such a strong accent it was kinda tough to understand her...and I don't usually have difficulty with accents. The chile verde was absolutely killer and I still mentally compare against it any time I have chile verde.

    "The 1,400-mile journey is right on the edge of the fly/drive boundary" ... Your fly/drive boundary seems heavily weighted toward driving. Very heavily.

    While in Austin, check out Hop Doddy. The burgers and shakes are amazing!

    Home Slice Pizza across the street from Hop Doddy is pretty good too. I've done the ATX to LA drive twice taking an average of 20 hours. Look out for the cops around the small towns in west Texas. It's probably best to just set your cruise control to the 80mph speed limit as it's easy to speed in the vast nothingness out there.

    If you want some sushi in Austin, try Uchi or Uchiko. If you want to catch a movie, have a beer and some food, check out the Alamo Drafthouse. There are lots of good BBQ places, but Franklin's is supposed to have the best brisket.
