This year we’re compiling a list of vehicles that we’re thankful for and couldn’t help but share them all with you. We didn’t want to make it specific to our cars because there’s just so much cool stuff out there, so we’re going off the deep end. Check out all the stuff our marketing team is thankful for, and drop us a comment and let us know what you’re thankful for this year. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Morrie’s Heritage!
I’m thankful for the 1963 Corvette Split-Window Coupe. My grandpa has always been a car guy and has owned nearly 2 dozen cars, his favorite being his ’63 Vette. Last Christmas, while on vacation in Florida, we stopped by Muscle Car City and there happened to be one in the exact color of the one he once owned, navy. My grandpa was ecstatic, it’s one of my favorite memories with him.
I’m thankful for the all-new up and coming 2020 Tesla Roadster. I know what you’re thinking. “You’re in the classic car world, why pick a car of the future?” That’s because it makes me thankful for what I’m surrounded by every day. The future of electric cars is going to be an amazing thing and I’m excited to see where it goes in the future, but man will it make people appreciate the old. Throttling that pedal and listening to 400 cu. in. of American Muscle fire up will be a sight to behold in the not so distant future…
This season I’m thankful for the 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring Hatch. Driving one for work almost daily is a joy. From the comfortable heated leather seats to the excellent Bose audio system. My trips all over the metro and even Wisconsin are made better in the 3. I typically have video gear or audio gear in tow and the hatch with the seats back seats down has almost as much cargo space as a compact SUV!

I’m thankful for dirt cheap cars like NA and NB Miatas, ’80s RX7s, and Mk2 GTIs because they’re cheap to buy and cheap to keep running while being a whole lot of fun to drive. They’re also interesting and different from 95% of the other cars you see on the road while still being varying degrees of practical.
