Our Road America VIP Weekend at IndyCar

By |2019-06-25T09:22:19-05:00June 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

In its 24th season, the IndyCar Series is quite the spectacle to see in person. We spent this past weekend with our VIP guests at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI taking in all the action. Plus, we weren’t just able to see it in person, but we got to meet drivers, get in the pits, and even explore an IndyCar with a full hands-on tour! Our brand new Morrie’s Tiny Honda served as our “hub” for the weekend. We had catered lunches, great trackside viewing from the top, and our racing sim inside. We had such an amazing time that we’re already planning for the next event! So check out all the fun by scrolling through our photo tour. […]

Replacing the Clutch Cable on a Porsche 914

By |2019-06-11T08:39:18-05:00June 11th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I should preface this by saying I’m not a mechanic. We have 25+ cars here at MHCC, but it’s rare that we pick up some tools and dig into something that’s not straight forward repairs. That being said when it’s my own vehicle and I have time to work on something, I’m going to give it my best college try. So the clutch cable conveniently snapped right outside the warehouse full of tools, and not driving down the highway, which I was thankful for timing wise. In worse news though, I’m not a certified Porsche mechanic so this wasn’t going to be something I’ve done before. So I grabbed my Clymer Manual and ordered a new clutch cable from 914rubber.com for around $23. That was it. One part, one job, one goal. Fix the 914 clutch cable and get this rectangle hot rod back on the road. […]

Getting back up to speed at Road America

By |2019-05-07T12:50:40-05:00May 7th, 2019|Uncategorized|1 Comment

They say practice makes perfect, but when you’re out of practice having spent an entire winter out of the car, it takes a bit longer to get up to speed. That’s how I felt going into the World Racing League CanAm Endurance Cup this past weekend at Road America. For those unfamiliar with World Racing League, it’s an amateur endurance racing series that pits man and machine against some of the greatest race tracks in the US. Our weekend comprised of 16 hours of racing covering 1,279 miles, split between two eight-hour races. Needless to say it provided ample seat time to knock the rust off from our driver quartet. Some say Disneyland is the happiest place on earth. I beg to differ. There's no happier feeling than rolling through the Road America tunnel. Our team, the E30 Bombers, has been around for the better part of a decade. While our car has evolved quite a bit in that time, much like the others in the series, our driver lineup has remained relatively consistent. Combined we’ve logged hundreds of hours in the car, which I’d liken to your favorite living room recliner. Sure, it’s been around for many years and shows some cosmetic wear, but it still functions beautifully and keeps you comfy for hours on end. The ease, comfort and reliability of our little BMW-that-could is such that racing it for 2 or 3 hours on end is a relative breeze. That is as long as the [...]

Driving in a Snow Storm – The Dummies Guide

By |2019-02-26T09:49:08-05:00February 26th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We here at MHCC love a good driving story, but the bad driving stories are the ones that we remember the most. It was only supposed to be a 3-hour tour (cue the Gilligan theme song), but it ended up taking us just shy of 9-hours to get home on Sunday from a fishing trip. It started Friday so well, with sunny skies and no wind, then Sunday looked like a different planet. So we want to share a tale of why you don’t drive on the roads when they shut 3 major highways around you. […]

What is Morrie’s Heritage?

By |2019-01-22T13:26:16-05:00January 22nd, 2019|Community, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Oftentimes, we’ll get calls asking for a standard rental car. When we tell them we specialize in classic and exotic cars, 9/10 times they burst out laughing. I never understood that until I looked from the outside in. When most people think of a rental car, it’s along the lines of “I’m in a strange city and need transportation to and from something I most likely don’t want to do.” I totally understand that, but it’s such a different experience when you come to Morrie’s Heritage and pick up something like a 1987 Porsche 911 to hunt down the best roads you can find. Maybe it’s your wedding day and you pick up our 1966 Mustang to drive away from the wedding chapel. The possibilities we hear are endless, and we want to break down what we do and why we do it. […]

What’s Going On – Week of 12/17

12 Nights of Christmas at the Groveland Tap 12/12-12/23 The Groveland Tap was one of my parents and their friends' favorite hangouts during college, so I grew up going there for burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and to watch my dad lose in pool to his best friend Chris bi-monthly. Known for their Bavarian pretzel with beer cheese dip, Stroganoff burger, skillet brownie, and fries, the Groveland Tap is always an above-par dinner spot. On top of the incredible food and throw-back-to-college vibe, the Tap is celebrating the holidays with 12 Night of Christmas in which they'll feature a new bear every night until the 23rd. Take a peek at their event page to see the lineup and to plan which day(s) you're goin' out for a burger and beer this week!   Inline Skating at U.S. Bank Stadium 12/19 Get a pre-holiday party workout in this Wednesday, head to U.S. Bank Stadium for some inline skating. Leisure skating runs from 5-8pm, and costs $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and children under 5 skate for free. If you're the cousin who takes the family football game after Thanksgiving a bit too seriously, athletic skating runs from 8-9pm. Stadium staff asks that you bring your own skates and safety equipment. I ask that you wear purple and gold - Skol Vikes!   Hot Wheels Races 12/19 Flat Earth Brewing Company is hosting, quite possibly the coolest event I've come across to date - this Wednesday, beginning at 6pm, the brewery is having Hot Wheels Race [...]
