What would you do after you dropped out of a presidential campaign? For former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the newfound free time inspired him and a friend to take a road trip in a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.

Setting off Sunday morning south of Monterey, California, Perry and his fellow Texas A&M alumnus Tommy Orr appear to be driving the car back to Perry’s current home town of Round Top, Texas. At least, that’s what I’ve gleaned from Perry’s Instagram account.

The #roadtrip continues. Chevelle loves the road!! A smooth ride as we start back east this AM.
