Promotional newsreels featuring a variety of Chevrolet-centric stories, including: the building of Norris Dam in Tennessee; an automobile racing an ice boat across a lake in Mt. Clemens, Michigan; gasoline economy tests on Detroit streets; women showing off their hairstyles in an automobile moving along New York City streets; the Soap Box Derby at Dayton, Ohio; and a miniature dog riding in the glove compartment of an automobile in San Francisco.
A massive 100+ car barn find collection in Chicago, IL that I photographed for Mecum Auctions. Inside the building was dozens of amazing finds. So many Shelby Mustangs, Z28 Camaros, even a couple Rolls Royce cars were stashed inside and forgotten about. This video shows a good majority of the cars that were present but from what I was told there were additional cars elsewhere that I didn’t get to see.
I’ve mentioned The Drive Home in previous posts now you can get a proper feel for the event.
Since 2016, The Drive Home – organized by America’s Automotive Trust – has run a caravan of classic cars and trucks cross-country to Detroit, Michigan, arriving in time for the opening of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in mid-January. The winter use of classic vehicles is not without its detractors, but this year’s The Drive Home IV, which departed Houston, Texas on January 3 and arrived in Detroit, Michigan on January 12, will mark the last time the event is held on salt-encrusted roads. This video, produced by Derek Klein Films and courtesy of LeMay – America’s Car Museum, gives a sense of what it was like to be part of the journey, and why the annual trek is so important to the hobby.
