Classic car nirvana
It’s the wind in your hair, the sound of the motor rumbling, the thrill of the ride. But before you take your classic car out for a spin, make sure you show it a little love.
Driving your classic car
- Find a tour. Car clubs have regular outings that may include meals, hotels, mechanical support, and opportunities to drive some of America’s finest roads.
- Attend a car show. Whether you’re seeking recognition for your well-presented classic or simply looking for conversation with others like you, attending a car show can boost your knowledge and enjoyment of your classic car.
- Find a “cars and coffee” event. Typically held in parking lots, these gatherings are usually a few hours long and don’t include awards. But they might include a drive on scenic roads and some great connections with others who love their classic cars too.
