Vintage Vehicles from America’s Car Museum Brace for Winter Weather on ‘The Drive Home’
Entering its third year, The Drive Home is an annual vintage vehicle winter road rally that celebrates America’s motoring legacy throughout the country.
America’s Automotive Trust (AAT) and the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) have announced that Boca Raton, Florida, will be the starting point for “The Drive Home III: Driving The Future” – a 10-day road rally from January 3 to 12, concluding with the final leg traveling down iconic Woodward Avenue ending at Cobo Center for NAIAS.
“The auto show’s executive director, Rod Alberts, and I hatched the idea of The Drive Home several years ago over Balvenie Scotch and Montecristo cigars,” said AAT President and CEO David Madeira. “We thought it was a great idea to put vintage cars out on the road in the dead of winter – after all, it’s simply something you don’t see every day.”
“And the response has been overwhelmingly positive – the cars bring out feelings of nostalgia, not only in car lovers but everyday people,” added Madeira. “I’ll never forget how a string of misfortune could have ended the run to Detroit last year, but the community rallied behind us and were instrumental in finding rare parts and getting us on back on the road.”
To keep things fresh, TDH III will feature a set of muscle cars from America’s Car Museum as well as a motorcycle, sports car, resto-rod and pick-up truck to tell the story of automotive innovation and competition.
“The Drive Home is truly a fantastic way to lead into the North American International Auto Show as we connect with automotive enthusiasts across the journey to Detroit,” said Alberts. “Much like NAIAS, we continue to add new elements and partners to the road rally that keeps it exciting and engaging.”
