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 [...]

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. […]

1973 VW Super Beetle – The New Kid on the Block!

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! […]
