Lap Around the Web – Sept. 3rd, 2018

By |2019-02-26T10:11:37-05:00September 4th, 2018|Lap Around the Web|0 Comments

2018 is the year of green. Everywhere you look, manufacturers are coming out with new cars in stunning hues such as Porsche’s bright and wild Lizard Green on the GT3RS or Audi’s classy and sophisticated Sonoma Green they used a launch color on the new RS5 Sportback. All signs are pointing to green being very much the “it” color right now and taking that trend to new heights is, of course, a small Italian company known as Automobili Amos who has embued their new reimagined Lancia Delta Futurista. Other than the price, which is $350,000, Automobili Amos hasn’t published any numbers about this new project. And that’s because, according to the creator of this project, the Delta Futurista isn’t about numbers. It’s about how it makes you feel; it’s about the emotion of driving the car. And to me, that’s pretty cool. Sure, it’s lighter, faster, and more luxurious than the original Delta Integrale, but that’s not the point. To learn more about the gorgeous and green Lancia Delta Futurista as reimagined by Automobili Amos, check out this article about it on Jalopnik. […]

Zoom Zoom, Boom Boom: A Very Miata 4th of July

By |2016-07-05T13:30:53-05:00July 5th, 2016|Driving Experience|0 Comments

I have a love/hate relationship with the MHCC MX-5. I love it because, well, Miata. It’s (arguably) the ultimate enthusiast’s car. The handling, the balance, the superbly weighted shifts…everything comes together so perfectly in this tiny little package it’s hard not to get swept off your feet. It’s a go-kart on steroids. They say it’s more fun to drive a slow car fast than trying to drive a fast car slow, and after my first time behind the wheel of the MX-5, I was a convert to that particular school of thought. Long live the roadster, indeed. I hate it because driving the stupid thing for any length of time makes everything else I get behind the wheel of feel like a lumbering turd. […]

MHCC Roadtrip Part 2: What day is it and where are we?

By |2015-12-11T15:40:30-05:00December 11th, 2015|Driving Experience|0 Comments

This is Part Two of our Epic and somewhat foolish MHCC Road Trip Blog and you can find Part One Here After the race we headed to our hotel in Reno, NV – a short four-hour jaunt from Thunderhill. We were surprisingly alert despite lack of sleep and still pretty soaked from the 20 hours of rain during the race. While we could have saved a little time on the way to Reno by taking the interstate, we decided to once again take the road less traveled. We spent more time cruising some great mountain roads with more amazing views. After arriving in Reno, we immediately went to our hotel room to clean up as we hadn’t really had access to running water in 30+ hours. Refreshed, we decided to see what Reno had to offer by way of food since we hadn’t really had anything of substance since breakfast at 6 am. We found a casino with a steakhouse, but alas, the wait was over an hour so we ’settled’ for a habachi grill with all you can eat sushi. It was absolutely fantastic. Full of fish and rice, we headed back to the hotel and were asleep by 8:30. […]

MHCC Road Trip Part 1: Thunderhill or Bust!

By |2019-05-29T09:02:05-05:00December 9th, 2015|Driving Experience|2 Comments

  Planning a road trip in theory always seems so easy – have a start point, an end point, and decide what roadside attractions you have time for along the way. Ours was a little bit different. We planned to fly to Seattle, Washington and pick up the latest addition to the MHCC rental fleet: a 1977 Mazda Rotary Pickup we purchased on a Bring a Trailer auction. You might be asking yourself, “Why drive it back? Wouldn’t it be cheaper and easier to ship it?” Absolutely–but it’ll take more than that to deter us. […]

Epic Road Trip or Hair Brained Scheme, Why Not Both?

By |2015-12-01T10:42:13-05:00November 30th, 2015|Driving Experience|0 Comments

We are always up for a road trip, so when we had the chance to go and pick up our newest Heritage car in Washington and drive it back instead of shipping it, we said, “Why not?” We fly out Wednesday to pick up our 1977 Mazda pickup and start the 2800-mile journey back to Minnesota. While we could just drive straight back via Interstate 90, we thought we should take the long way back and check out what this country has to offer. […]

New Addition: 1977 Mazda Rotary Engine Pickup (REPU)

By |2015-12-01T09:28:02-05:00November 30th, 2015|New Additions|0 Comments

We are excited to introduce the newest addition to our Morrie’s Heritage rental fleet: a 1977 Mazda Rotary Engine Pick Up. This beautiful REPU has just gone through an almost 5-year overhaul and restoration that has made it one of the nicest specimens of this truck we have seen. The most notable feature is the paint job, which is the original Mazda Skyish Blue. When you look at the stance of the truck, you’ll notice it sits a bit lower than stock based on the Bilstein coilovers up front, de-arched springs with 2 leafs removed in the rear, and adjustable air shocks.

SEMA 2015: What we loved!

By |2015-11-10T16:54:53-05:00November 10th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We are back from Las Vegas and thought we should tell you about some of our favorite products and cars that we saw at SEMA. We covered 20 miles or so on foot over two days and we hope we saw it all. With so many neat products already released or coming soon, it was hard to decide what should get Best of Show—but we found two that really captured our attention. […]

SEMA: iPhone edition

I thought we should share some more pictures, this time what we took on our cell phones. While not quite as good of quality as our camera there is still some great eye candy to be seen. Most of these photos did make it to our Instagram and Twitter feed but there are a couple that didn’t. […]
