We simply cannot thank everyone enough who came out rain or shine and rented from us in 2017. We’re already planning how to make 2018 even better, and we hope to see everyone back to rent again next year! Whether it was your wedding, a night out on the town, or just a blast down the open road, we hope everyone was able to enjoy a Heritage vehicle. We’ll be boosting up our fleet for next year, so stayed tuned to see what we’re adding in 2018 – but first here’s a photo look back at our year in a nutshell! […]

How can you not be completely overwhelmed by the amount of carbon fiber, high wings, and monster engines found on the floor of SEMA 2017? We were, and frankly still are. We couldn’t exclude anything that wasn’t even a hidden racecar without a number on the side, so we wandered around (literally blowing out our shoes) the show taking it all in. So here is a recap of everything and anything racecar related! […]

Give to the Max ’17 – Thursday, November 16th “GiveMN launched in 2009 as a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place. To generate excitement, we organized a little something called Give to the Max Day. That spark touched off a blast of online giving — $14 million in 24 hours. Since that trial run in 2009, Give to the Max Day has become an annual tradition. Every year thousands of organizations raise money to improve the quality of life in Minnesota and communities around the world.” […]

Lap Around the Web – Nov. 13th

While plenty of modern automotive factories feature floor to ceiling glass walls, sleek, modern designs, and cutting-edge machinery all laid out across a huge plot of land, Fiat strove to be an integrated part of Turin, Italy when they built their Lingotto plant and test track in the heart of the city in 1916. That’s right, Fiat built not only a large-scale automotive factory in the center of a bustling city but in order to also test their vehicles as they came off the assembly line, the roof was transformed into a banked oval test track. Raw materials would be delivered to the ground level and as cars underwent their assembly, they’d move higher and higher until the completed cars ended up on the rooftop test track to be driven prior to delivery. This was standard practice for more than 65 years until production ended in 1982. The building is now a mixed-used space with apartments, a piano store, art galleries, and rather fittingly, the Automotive Engineering school at Turin Polytechnic. […]

Lap Around the Web – Nov. 6th

The big news over the weekend was that Swedish manufacturer of so-fast-it’ll-rip-your-face-off cars, Koenigsegg, surpassed the Bugatti Chiron to become the fastest car in the world. For the record attempt, one of Koenigsegg’s well-heeled customers managed to secure a closed stretch of road 11 miles in length in Nevada and kinda let Koenigsegg’s test driver make several high speed runs in his Agera RS. The end result? An average of 277.9 MPH taken across two runs (to certify the record, the run must be run on the same stretch of road in both directions). If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to go that fast on a public road, you’ve got to watch this video. Pay special attention to the way the Agera RS builds speed above 180 MPH, accelerating faster from 180 to 240 MPH faster than many of cars can go from 0-60 MPH, but I guess that’s what 1341 horsepower will do for you.

Super Tucked to Lifted Trucks – SEMA 2017

A trip to SEMA for some is a bucket list trip, and after spending some quality time wandering the show it’s immediately clear why that is true. The cars, the products, the celebrities, everywhere you look, you’re simply amazed. We walked about 20+ miles during our time at the show and still didn’t see everything there was to offer. You can’t explain the sheer size of the show, and we hope that some of these photos break into the amazement that was SEMA 2017! […]

Lap Around the Web – Oct. 30th

As an amateur architecture buff and car guy, I've always dreamt of building a custom home that was more garage than actual living space. And while that seems like an awesome idea in my theory, there are so few people who have actually built such a structure that it's been hard to visualize exactly what a living garage home would - or at least could - look like. When I stumbled across this house, I was blown away by the large and functional (but tidy) garage on the majority of the first floor while the upper level makes up the living space. Located in Austin, TX, it's really nicely done and although it's not currently for sale, I'm ready to pack up and move on in. A couple weeks ago, I shared a story about a never-registered, delivery mileage McLaren F1 being available for sale, and while the fact that it was kept pristine will likely help it fetch a pretty penny when the right buyer comes along, Petrolicious had a great counterpoint from another F1 owner who actually drives their car regularly. While it's easy for collectors to get hung up on keeping cars mothballed away for value's sake, cars are meant to be driven and it's a shame, especially for great drivers' sports cars, to sit and collect dust instead of being used as intended. So if you've ever wondered what it's like to own and drive a McLaren F1, here's your chance. Now here's something you've probably never [...]
