Vintage vehicles weave across the country on their way to the North American International Auto Show
The Drive Home III, the annual cross-country classic car tour held by America’s Automotive Trust for the opening of the North American International Auto Show, covered nearly 2,500 miles in a weaving path to Detroit, and was accident free – until the last hour.
The tour began January 3 from Boca Raton, Florida, and wound northward, stopping at notable car collections, museums and sponsors along the way. This year’s route was expected to be kind to the six cars participating, but record-cold weather sweeping the south posed additional challenges to the vintage vehicles. Like many old cars that come out from static display, these cars needed a shakedown cruise to work out some of the bugs.
