“The Hawk” at Road America

Recently, the MHCC team spent some time at Road America for a race weekend to most, simply known as “The Hawk.” It’s a vintage road race that I’ve personally attended almost 25 years in a row now, and I can still say that it’s one I look forward to each year. As more and more vintage vehicles seem to fade into private collections, there’s still a large number of unique and amazing racecars to see – so check out our photo recap of the weekend, from the racing action, to the street car concours, and much more!

Morrie’s Festival of Speed – What is it Really Like to Go to the Track Day?

By | 2018-07-12T13:38:12+00:00 July 12th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Sure, you’ve considered signing up for the track day, but you just really aren’t sure you’re fully ready to hit the track. Maybe you’re nervous you won’t have any idea what you’re doing out there? Maybe you don’t think that your late model BMW, Mustang, or daily driver would be any fun? I’m here to tell you that you’d be completely wrong. I’ve driven many vehicles on track that could be considered daily drivers, and you just don’t get the full experience driving on the road like you do on an open racetrack. So I wanted to break down a few things for you on what to expect at the Morrie’s Festival of Speed, and why you should consider signing up! […]

Wedge-shaped cars were a hallmark of the late 1970s and into the early ’80s. Like disco music, they’re one of those trends that were everywhere at the time but looking back, it might not have aged very well. Still, there’s something both nostalgic and futuristic about these photos depicting some of the most radical wedged concept cars to ever be built. Head on over to Petrolicious to see 10 of the wedgiest concept cars ever made, including favorites like the Lancia Stratos Zero, the Alfa Romeo Carabo, and the Lamborghini Marzal. Heck, there are even a few non-wedgy cars in the mix that carried the torch for the vintage futuristic photo shoot look that never seems to go out of style. […]

Track Day, Bro!

By | 2017-05-09T16:00:00+00:00 May 9th, 2017|Driving Experience, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Morrie’s Automotive Group hosted its first track day of the year last Friday at Brainerd International Raceway and although the weather in early May can always be a little unpredictable, we got lucky with blue skies and perfect 70-degree temps all day. It was under those perfect conditions that our friends and customers had a chance to get out on track in their cars (as well as a couple of Aston Martins borrowed from Morrie’s Luxury Auto). With the help of the trained drivers from the BIR Performance Driving School, it’s safe to say that everyone not only had a blast, but learned a lot and will hopefully be able to transfer those skills to driving safely on the street as well. If you weren’t able to make it to the track with us this time, we’ll be headed back up to BIR on Friday, September 29th. We hope to see you there! […]
