The Drive Home II, the LeMay-America’s Car Museum’s classic car expedition to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, has stuck to a grueling schedule and Saturday’s early morning start upheld the pace. The team began a leg that would take them 250 miles from the Potomac to the Alleghenies and ring in the New Year in surreal elegance.

The crew left Arlington at 5:30 a.m. for the popular Katie’s Cars and Coffee event in Great Falls, Virginia. The event draws hundreds of sports, exotic, classic and antique cars each Saturday morning, with premium spots requiring pre-dawn claim staking. We unloaded the 1917 Crane-Simplex by winch, as we have been reluctant to start it since it overheated after the 15-mile jaunt from Newport to Jamestown.
