This one’s for fans of anything on four wheels, history buffs and general gearheads! The Drive Home II: The Heritage Run vintage car road rally is gearing up for car enthusiast gatherings across the Northeast. Check it out as it stops in Philly.
Off work or school this week? America’s Car Museum will celebrate America’s automotive history by showcasing vintage vehicles at happy hours, cars and coffee events, and other auto-themed happenings in 16 cities. The Drive Home II: The Heritage Run will be a 12-day, 2,150-mile winter trek, starting in Boston on December 27th and leading up to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
Three of ACM’s vintage cars— a ’57 Chevy Nomad, ’61 Chrysler 300G and ’66 Ford Mustang— will be traveling to places including Philly, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Allentown, DC(ish), NYC, Indianapolis and a bunch of cities in Michigan. After their journey ends, The Drive Home II vehicles will be on display at the North American International Auto Show along with a coach-built 1917 Crane-Simplex, whose previous owner was oil tycoon J.D. Rockefeller.
The Philadelphia stop takes place on Thursday, December 29th at 4:30 as the cars roll in to Pat’s King of Steaks on Passyunk Avenue. (This stop doubles as a perfectly legit reason to get you some cheesesteaks over the holiday break, in case you needed some extra incentive.) More info here.
You can track the cars’ progress with daily updates on America’s Car Museum’s Twitter and Facebook pages as well as the Motor Mouth Blog.
