We have entered day 3 of the 100 hours ’46 Ford Truck rebuild. Make sure to tune in as the engine is going to go in today and things are going to get REAL exciting.
At Hagerty, we are big proponents of the idea that you don’t need to be a millionaire (or even a hundred-thousand-aire) to get into the classic car hobby. To put that theory to the test, back in July we dropped three Hagerty employees in Nashville, Tenn. each armed with $5,000 and one goal: To find the very best…
How did we sell cars before the Internet? Newspapers and word of mouth, that’s how. Can you imagine anything more labor intensive? But then science discovered the Internet, and with it Craigslist, and BAM! People had an easy way to clear out their garages.
The folks at Holley Performance Products were kind enough to send us a Terminator EFI, which we recently installed in Hagerty Parts Finder Davin Reckow’s classic Chevelle. We test the impact on performance via the “butt dyno,” the 1/8th-mile drag strip, the chassis dyno and gas mileage.
Our exclusive interview with Sally and Jack Kosmatka, who at Motostalgia’s Brickyard Auction said an emotional goodbye to what has become known as the Texas Barn Find Collection – five well-preserved pre-WWII automobiles and a travel trailer stored in a warehouse behind their home near Austin. Untouched for 40 years,…

It's too bad we can't all be as cool as Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams. Famed rally racer Barrie "Whizzo" Williams has started more than 1,500 races and rallies over the years, and he raced his "nimble and friendly" Mini Cooper S for many of those. Whizzo always regretted selling that car to a friend, who then sold it to…
Hagerty has launched a production that I've been working on for over a year. I'm excited to share Finding Number 9.
When I was a kid I learned to drive a manual transmission on a Dodge Power Wagon in the woods the Northern Michigan. Hagerty is now offering event for young people who are interested in learning to drive a manual… And the best part is you get to learn on some pretty amazing cars. But, no Power Wagons yet.
Fordtrucks posted this video of Tanner Foust using all of the Nürburgring in a F-150 Raptor. It's surprising he didn't just cut down the middle. It makes some good use of 'shock-cam' but driving doesn't start 'till :50s in.
Hagerty had a porsche seminar this morning and it was an interesting conversation. You can watch it in its entirety here:
Co-worker Jeff Peek takes a ride around the law mower race track.
This was shot in 2011, but we turned it into a pop-up style video this year. It was a bit of a departure from our usually style of editing with lots of transitions. It works, but was a bit over used. It was a learning experience and considering it wasn't shot for specifically for this video it was fun to play around…
What a son. Joe and Beverly Smith were the proud owners of a 1948 Plymouth Convertible until they had to sell it when Joe was drafted to serve in the Korean War. As a 60th wedding anniversary gift, their son, Joel, found a '48 Plymouth through Craigslist fixed it up and gave it to them as a surprise. The car will now…
We met Tina Higgins and her family in Arizona at the beginning of our Trip of Fools road trip last fall. They bestowed us a great interview about her Dad's 1929 Model A and the crazy life the car had lived.
