IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship – Road America

By |2019-08-06T11:54:49-05:00August 6th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

All parts of the IMSA racing series are amazing. It’s high dollar, high horsepower, high ego racing. You don’t just sign up for a Lamborghini Super Trofeo racing series because you’re a casual weekend enthusiast. This is some serious business and I’m all for it. Then you have the sportscar championship series which is also some of my favorite racing to watch. We were lucky and got to see some pretty great racing and I’m already planning where to watch more IMSA racing next year! In the meantime here are some photos from this past weekend. […]

Vintage Racing at Road America

By |2019-07-24T11:29:44-05:00July 24th, 2019|Events, Uncategorized|0 Comments

The racing this weekend was great. The name for the event, however, is way too long, “THE WEATHERTECH® INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE WITH BRIAN REDMAN PRESENTED BY HAWK (VINTAGE CARS).” Once you get that out of the way and tell people you’re headed to, “The Hawk” they probably know what you mean. It’s one of the largest vintage events in the country for racers and brings some amazing vehicles to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. The best part of the weekend for me isn’t always the racing, but heading into town and checking out the race car parade. Check out some photos from the event (Spoiler Alert: It’s Porsche heavy as always!) […]

2019 Denver Mecum Auction – Did They Sell?

By |2019-07-16T12:20:18-05:00July 16th, 2019|Events|1 Comment

If you didn’t catch our road trip blog you can read about how we got to Denver here, but basically, we hopped in our Porsche 911 and made a run for Denver. We took the long way across and down which if you haven’t done is simply amazing. If you want to just know if we sold our 1965 Lincoln Continental and 1966 Chevrolet Corvair though, you’re in the right place! So this is the tale about how it went, what we expected, and much more!

To Denver and Back! A Mecum Auction Road Trip

By |2019-07-16T12:21:17-05:00July 16th, 2019|Driving Experience|0 Comments

We decided that it was time to sell a few of our vehicles from our fleet. We sent the Thunderbird to Mecum in Phoenix over the winter where we, unfortunately, didn’t have the best luck. That didn’t stop us from trying again, and this time we wanted to double down with our ’65 Lincoln and ’66 Corvair. We had the cars shipped and thought maybe we’d just fly down. Then we realized that it would be way more fun to drive and packed up our 1987 Porsche 911 and planned a fun route to Denver. This is a story about our drive, so if you want to read about the auction results, you can click here! […]

Our Road America VIP Weekend at IndyCar

By |2019-06-25T09:22:19-05:00June 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

In its 24th season, the IndyCar Series is quite the spectacle to see in person. We spent this past weekend with our VIP guests at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI taking in all the action. Plus, we weren’t just able to see it in person, but we got to meet drivers, get in the pits, and even explore an IndyCar with a full hands-on tour! Our brand new Morrie’s Tiny Honda served as our “hub” for the weekend. We had catered lunches, great trackside viewing from the top, and our racing sim inside. We had such an amazing time that we’re already planning for the next event! So check out all the fun by scrolling through our photo tour. […]

Replacing the Clutch Cable on a Porsche 914

By |2019-06-11T08:39:18-05:00June 11th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I should preface this by saying I’m not a mechanic. We have 25+ cars here at MHCC, but it’s rare that we pick up some tools and dig into something that’s not straight forward repairs. That being said when it’s my own vehicle and I have time to work on something, I’m going to give it my best college try. So the clutch cable conveniently snapped right outside the warehouse full of tools, and not driving down the highway, which I was thankful for timing wise. In worse news though, I’m not a certified Porsche mechanic so this wasn’t going to be something I’ve done before. So I grabbed my Clymer Manual and ordered a new clutch cable from 914rubber.com for around $23. That was it. One part, one job, one goal. Fix the 914 clutch cable and get this rectangle hot rod back on the road. […]

An Unexpected Hot Rod Show in Texas

By |2019-05-29T09:20:13-05:00May 29th, 2019|MHCC Trips|0 Comments

I was recently in Austin Texas for a close friends wedding over the Memorial Day weekend. Though it was in Austin, I was flying in and out of San Antonio which is about an hour away. So I hopped in my rental Jaguar F-Pace (p.s. which was great and a totally different story) and headed to a coffee shop I picked in the middle of nowhere. After about an hour in the car, I pull into a town square where I see about 20 hot rods and classic cars. Then beyond that, keeping in mind this is the middle of nowhere, I see a close family friend. Someone I didn’t expect to see in Texas, let alone in the middle of nowhere! So this is how you end up going from a regular boring day to a hot rod show in Texas. […]
