Flexin’ in Colorado

By | 2018-03-13T09:09:49+00:00 March 13th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Let me start off this blog post about a Ford Flex by saying, the Flex has never really appealed to me. Although I like the Honda Element, the Ford Flex seemed too similar to a hearse for my liking. When they first came out, my dad and I would make fun of each one we saw. Then, while planning a trip out to Colorado, I came to the realization that the Flex would be the perfect car. When I first started looking at rental cars on Turo, I knew I wanted something with AWD since we would be in the mountains, preferably a Subaru. But the more I thought about it, the more a Subaru didn’t make sense. We needed to transport 5 people, 2 snowboard bags, and 4 suitcases all in one vehicle. After much debate, I decided to go for the boxy, hearse-like Flex and rented it for our trip. As soon as we arrived and checked out the vehicle, I was immediately surprised by how much space it had. The third row of seats folds flat into the floor, so when they’re up, you have extra storage space. We were able to fold down only the right side of the second and third row so we had room for the snowboard bags, and still had enough seating for everyone in our group. I’ve heard the Flex called a “giant wagon”, and after driving it, I’d have to say that’s pretty accurate! Because of the boxy shape, I [...]

We just wrapped up another great season of Rink Rats! For those of you unfamiliar with the program, Rink Rats is a program that brings the great sport of hockey to kids who otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience it. The Herb Brooks foundation organizes the program, and for the past 6 years, we’ve partnered with them to provide transportation for their Minneapolis schools. We provide transportation in the fall for 2 schools, with more schools joining in the winter. This year, the winter program ran from January 8th-February 15th. We've rounded up a few stats and pictures to show how much this program means to us! Rink Rats By the Numbers 8 schools 21 days 40 sessions 85 Morrie's volunteers 115 kids

Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – January 2018 Edition

By | 2018-01-23T15:25:37+00:00 January 23rd, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We’re just going to jump right into the deep end of this month’s weird automotive finds with this thing: a 2009 Dobbertin Hydrocar. Believe it or not, this amphibious vehicle is one-of-a-kind, featuring hand-formed aluminum body panels, including the retractable pontoons on the sides that raise up to function as the Hydrocar’s fenders or lower 8″ to help it float on water. Apparently, it also features 4-wheel steering that allows the driver to choose between having the rear wheels follow the fronts or to turn the opposite direction. Plus, it has gullwing doors, so… there’s that. […]

Best of Best: A Recap of 2017

By | 2018-01-02T13:50:53+00:00 December 27th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

So we wanted to compile a, “Best of the Best” post from the 2017 season, as seen through the eyes of our viewers. So what we did is cram all of our favorite blogs into one post to take a look back at what made 2017 such a memorable year. We drove all over the midwest, we drove some race cars, we bought some fancy watches, and so much more that we couldn’t even include. Just when we thought that we’d hit the pinnacle of a great year, we went out and added a new car before the year closes. So as we look upon our new shiny Corvette, or look at our old and trusty Mustangs, we really have to enjoy what we have. The ability to share spectacular automotive pieces of history with the general public that used our vehicles in such fun and unique ways is just awesome. […]

Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – December 2017 Edition

By | 2017-12-19T16:36:55+00:00 December 19th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Hey! It's been awhile since we dug up some of the weirdest, most interesting cars for sale on the internet but today we found some good ones, starting with a grill only a mother could love. Get a load of this 1972 Citroen HY converted into an RV! What is it? Why would someone build this? None of those questions matter. The only question you should be asking is how can you afford NOT to buy this for just $30,000. That's way cheaper than anything else you can live in, including a house. Anyone can go buy a Westfalia and be a hippy but can YOU can be a hippy with a certain je ne sais quoi. Qu'est-ce qui se passe? C'est très gentil. If you've got gasoline in your veins (Morrie's Heritage Car Connection does not recommend or condone injecting gasoline intravenously), then this car ought to get your blood pumping a little faster. While this isn't a legit Audi Sport Quattro S1, it's awfully close and with at least 700 hp on tap, it's probably every bit as exciting to drive as the real deal for a fraction of the cost. OK, so $300k isn't exactly cheap, but who can put a price on something this awesome? I mean, that's like paying $37,500 per headlight and a crazy rally car thrown in for free! According to the ad, you can even crank up the boost to generate 1,000+ hp if you really wanted to end up in the hospital (or morgue) [...]
