Behind the Wheel with The Drive Home III

It may be January and cold and snowy in many parts of the U.S. but it’s also as good a time as any for a long drive in some vintage cars.

I was privileged to spend two days driving in “The Drive Home III: Driving The Future” – a 10-day road rally that began on January 3 in Boca Raton, FL and will conclude on January 12 at the opening of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

Now in its third year, America’s Automotive Trust, which oversees the LeMay-America’s Car Museum, and the NAIAS have presented The Drive Home cross-country odyssey in vintage automobiles designed to demonstrate that collector cars are meant to be driven, no matter what the season.

The first year’s road trip started in Tacoma, Washington and the second year it was in Boston. For both they used a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad, a 1961 Chrysler 300G, and a 1966 Ford Mustang.

This year there are six cars and a motorcycle—a 2014 Triumph Thruxton Ace, a 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS, a 1962 International Travelette extended cab pickup, a 1959 Plymouth Fury, a 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, and a 1955 Chrysler C-300.
