Share your summer driving dreams with us
If you’ve been reading the news lately, you know why a lot of us are hitting the pause button on this spring’s driving plans. Here at Hagerty, we don’t expect this state of affairs to last forever—and we want to hear about your plans for when things get better and it’s time to take your classic or collector cars out of the garage. Will you go cross-country? To a concours? Will you check an event—or a racetrack—off your bucket list? Or will you just enjoy the simple pleasure of a Friday night cruise or a Saturday morning meetup?
This weekend, we’re encouraging you to send your plans, hopes, and dreams to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be sharing some of the best contributions in the weeks to come. Whether it’s that first trip in the Corvette you’ve been restoring for a few years or a no-holds-barred take at a shortened SCCA season, we want you to let us know what’s keeping you involved and enthusiastic during the weeks to come.
Here in Hagerty’s Digital Media division, we have quite a few plans: some recently-completed purchases of a classic Volvo wagon and a one-owner Dodge Neon ACR coupe, more restoration and improvement work on a Fox-body Lincoln Continental and a 1967 Beetle. Two of our writers bought second-generation Lexus LS400 sedans—and if you’re an LS owner, we are going to have some fun swag for you in the months to come. On, and there’s the slightly-insane itinerary your humble author is putting together to drive a 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis Coupe filled to the brim with musical equipment from Houston to Nashville by way of New Orleans and a few other places. (We’ll tell you in advance where we’re going to be, so you can throw a nickel into the tip jar.)
But wait, as they say on television—there’s more. Starting in April, we’ll be drastically accelerating the amount of enthusiast news, features, and new-car tests available on our website. We’re going to have giveaways and bonus materials for top commenters and lucky readers. Last and certainly not least, once everybody’s ready to travel we are going to give more than a couple of you the chance to drive the newest quarter-million-dollar exotic supercars on a race track designed just for the purpose.
Keep your heads up, Hagerty members—the spring might be tough, but there’s some great discussion, entertainment, and opportunities coming your way. And in the meantime, we hope you’ll share your stories and plans with us so we can keep each other inspired in the weeks to come!
