What is Morrie’s Heritage?

Oftentimes, we’ll get calls asking for a standard rental car. When we tell them we specialize in classic and exotic cars, 9/10 times they burst out laughing. I never understood that until I looked from the outside in. When most people think of a rental car, it’s along the lines of “I’m in a strange city and need transportation to and from something I most likely don’t want to do.” I totally understand that, but it’s such a different experience when you come to Morrie’s Heritage and pick up something like a 1987 Porsche 911 to hunt down the best roads you can find. Maybe it’s your wedding day and you pick up our 1966 Mustang to drive away from the wedding chapel. The possibilities we hear are endless, and we want to break down what we do and why we do it. […]

It’s unfortunate that winter usually means the end of car season here in Minnesota. The cold temps and slippery roads mean most people tuck their fun cars away for months at a time. In Austria, however, they celebrate the cold weather with a winter motorsports event, simply called the “Ice Race in Zell am See”. Here, loads of beautiful race cars and sports cars don studded tires and take laps around a small race course formed out of the snow and ice. Some of these amazing cars even attach tow straps and pull skiers around the course! […]

Now here’s something you don’t see every day. This long-hooded, Land Rover Series II-based behemoth is called the Bell Aurens Longnose. Although it now sees use with a more modern Range Rover 4.6L V8 under the bonnet, the rakish split-cowl hood was originally meant to cover a massive 27-liter V12 from a Spitfire fighter plane. Unfortunately, that plan never made it off the ground (pun intended) and now this oddly proportioned off-roadster can make a far more civilized shuffle to and from car shows and other events. Besides the 6-ft long hood, some of the other modifications include a shift lever topped with a cricket ball, side exit exhaust for that rumbly V8, and massive 35″ Mickey Thompson mud tires. If you’re the type of billionaire playboy (or playgirl) who would enjoy such a unique and eccentric vehicle, head over to Classic Driver where the Bell Aurens Longnose is listed for sale. […]

Carbon fiber has long been used to make lighter, stronger parts for cars, airplanes, and more. Sure, we’ve seen other fiber-based composites like fiberglass and even more exotic materials like Pagani’s “carbotanium” but now there’s a more environmentally-friendly composite that Porsche is pioneering with their new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport for the lightweight doors and rear wing. It’s called “natural fiber” and it’s made out of plant-based fibers, namely flax. For all intents and purposes, it looks and acts just like carbon fiber does, however, the raw fiber has a bit of a golden glow to it. There are some pretty significant benefits to natural fiber though in that it takes 75% less energy to manufacturer than carbon fiber and it’s also easier to dispose of, however, it’s not quite as strong as carbon fiber which means you probably won’t see the next supercar tub made out of it anytime soon. Still, it’s nice to see a new and innovative material come into play for future race cars. To learn more about natural fibers, check out the rest of the story on Road & Track’s website. […]
