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. […]

Thunderbirds Fly South for the Winter

By |2019-03-19T09:48:06-05:00March 19th, 2019|MHCC Trips|0 Comments

Hopefully, you followed along with us during our time down in Arizona, but if not we’re going to recap our auction trip to the Mecum Auctions in Phoenix. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. The Thunderbird made it’s way to Arizona last week, but did it find a new home? We don’t want to give it all away just yet, so here’s the tale of my recent trip to Arizona with our 1966 Ford Thunderbird […]

We’re Heading to Mecum Auctions in Phoenix

By |2019-03-05T13:40:03-05:00March 5th, 2019|MHCC Trips|0 Comments

We’ve decided to part with a few of our vehicles, but it’s not with a heavy heart that we are doing so. You come to love, enjoy, and respect each one of these classic vehicles differently. Then you decide that you have entirely too many, and something has got to go. We’re beginning that trend with our 1966 Ford Thunderbird, which will be heading to auction next week at the first-ever Mecum Auction in Phoenix | Glendale, AZ. You can follow along with us as we spend next week checking out the auction and running our Thunderbird on Thursday evenings. […]

Two Guys and a Miata: Say Hello To Project Rudolph

By |2018-12-06T13:59:18-05:00December 6th, 2018|MHCC Trips, New Additions|0 Comments

Missing our white 2013 Mazda MX-5 Club ever since we sold it, we’ve been considering a suitable replacement for quite awhile. These small, lightweight roadsters are just so fun to drive, they have a way of getting under your skin, which is precisely why we’ve been casually looking for an early Miata ever since. The sharing of Craigslist ads for NA and NB Miatas became nearly a weekly occurrence over the summer until we finally found the perfect example right in our own backyard: a bright red 1990 Mazda Miata with a factory hardtop. This two-owner example appeared to be meticulously cared for over its 130k miles of use and was just recently traded into our Morrie’s Chippewa Valley Mazda store for a new Mazda6. […]

By |2018-07-17T10:27:34-05:00July 17th, 2018|Driving Experience, MHCC Excursions, MHCC Trips|3 Comments

Last weekend, Adam (our MHCC Program Coordinator) and I threw a couple backpacks into the back of “Mini Horse” a.k.a. the 1977 Mazda Rotary Engine Pick Up and joined 20 other classic cars on the first annual Ralleye de Valleye which took us from Hastings, MN over the river  and into Wisconsin as we snaked our way through the absolutely wonderful “ABC” roads along the Mississippi River with stops along the way in Wabasha and Winona before stopping overnight in La Crosse, WI and heading north again the following day before ending the journey at StoneRidge Golf Club in Stillwater.

Goodwood Festival of Speed – Man on the Ground

By |2018-07-17T08:46:34-05:00July 13th, 2018|MHCC Trips, Occasions, Uncategorized|0 Comments

You may remember our old good friend, Josh Karsten, who just happens to be at Goodwood this year and we’re all very jealous. Well, he’s our man on the ground at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week and he’s been sending us some amazing photos we just had to share! We’ll keep more coming as he sends them our way, but for now enjoy everything from his Mazda shuttle, self-driving Mustang, and an Aston Martin-powered V8 Cygnet. There’s plenty to see so stay tuned!

To Buy or Not to Buy: Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

By |2018-01-23T11:15:35-05:00January 23rd, 2018|MHCC Trips|3 Comments

The old saying, “Heavy lies the crown” is the first term that comes to mind when thinking about my visit to Barrett-Jackson for Morrie’s Heritage. You have the power to buy sure, but making a split second decision on an expensive vintage car is a terrifying decision. When that gavel cracks down you’d better be pretty darn sure you know exactly what you’re buying, and you should keep reading below to see if we succeeded in our quest to add or new car, or left empty handed.
