The MHCC Fall Color Tour – 2017

By | 2017-10-17T11:23:19+00:00 October 17th, 2017|Driving Experience, MHCC Excursions|0 Comments

Last week we decided that the fall colors had almost hit their peak, so we hit the open road and cruised to Lord Fletcher’s on Lake Minnetonka for an evening of food and fun. We had around 10 cars on this year’s cruise, and we made a little noise, took in all the best Minnesota fall colors, and grabbed an excellent dinner on the lake. We’ll let the pictures do the talking for now, but don’t fret if you missed out – we’re already planning our Spring Fun Run for next year! Again, thank you to those who joined and we hope to see you again next year! […]

Lap Around the Web – Oct. 16th

I can always get hyped on the McLaren F1. To this day, it’s still my all-time favorite car and when it was new, it had more in common with an alien spacecraft than just about any other car on the market at the time. And maybe that’s why I’m so excited that there’s still a brand-new, as-delivered 1997 McLaren F1 out there with just 138 miles on the odometer. Sure, when it’s a shame that it’s never been driven because it’s an icon amongst analog supercars, but for whoever is looking to cash in, selling this pristine machine is likely to net them more profit than I can ever hope to make over the course of my adult life. If you have the means and are shopping for the perfect McLaren F1, here’s your opportunity. […]

Lap Around the Web – Oct. 9th

As most of you reading this might’ve noticed if you weren’t living under a rock for the last couple months, there was a rare total solar eclipse in August. While many people jumped on the bandwagon in the months or weeks leading up to the eclipse, some people (mostly astronomers or nerdy photographers) had been planning to view the event for years. Sam Bendall, for instance, had been looking forward to the eclipse for close to a decade and had been planning his ideal way of viewing the eclipse when the time came. Luckily, as the time approached, his schedule cleared to allow him to make a once in a lifetime journey from California to Oregon on his motorcycle where he enjoyed over 1500 miles of beautiful roads over the course of 4 days. His story is both interesting and awe-inspiring and will make you long for a similar opportunity. […]

By | 2017-10-09T11:13:29+00:00 October 9th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We decided that we were missing some love in our fleet. So we went out and caught a love bug. It’s a 1973 Super Beetle Convertible that was originally delivered in Minnesota. While we do still have a bit of work left to finish before it’s completely rental ready, we’re already loving it! The VW Beetle is an iconic design and a sure fire way to enjoy an afternoon buggin’ around town. We can expect this rental ready by next week to catch the final part of our season in this baby blue Beetle convertible! […]

Lap Around the Web – Oct. 2nd

I love weird cars. Cars with a story, a unique history, or a secret life. And that’s exactly why I had to feature this Porsche 356-based “Kaiserslautern Coupe”. It’s one of those cars that can show up at a car show or event and despite the condition, it’ll draw a crowd and hundreds of questions all day because everyone is curious what it is, where it came from, and why it exists. The story about this rare car is actually even more interesting than I would’ve guessed, but not wanting to spoil the surprise, I recommend you head on over to Petrolicious to read the owner’s story about it.

Daily Driven: Life with a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

By | 2017-09-28T11:23:01+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

A lot of people have been asking me the same questions over and over. It generally starts with “You have eyes, right?” Apparently, (and this is just what I’ve gathered) a considerable portion of the population thinks the Porsche 996 is the ugliest car ever to come out of Stuttgart. “Fried-egg headlights and a ticking time bomb IMS bearing” are touted as the norm when it comes to the 996 chassis.  Now, I’m here to set the record straight. After owning a Speed Yellow 2003 Porsche 996 C4S for almost a year, I wanted to give it a fair review. To really explain why I went out of my way to sell my perfectly functional daily driver, and use the loot to buy a warranty-less Porsche. Disclaimer – I am not crazy. Probably. I’ll just get to the good/bad of the Porsche 996… […]
