The Drive Home II Arrival Update from ACM CEO David Madeira

Today we drove the final 20 miles of our 2,150 mile journey into Detroit to complete the Drive Home II. I drove the 1917 Crane Simplex which drove in the cold  4 degree weather flawlessly into the City ‘escorted’ by a CBS News helicopter in air and Michigan State police on the ground. Rod Alberts took the wheel of the Mustang for the Auto Show, Rock Jenkins the Chrysler for State Farm. Josh McManus of Rockventures/Quicken Loans braved the cold to ride shotgun for me as I piloted the Simplex into Cadillac square.

The cars showcase the Museum well and the staff did a terrific job. Tomorrow they take center stage at the North American International Auto Show.

Happy New Year!
