Akron or Bust: Safe, but Squeaky
Wednesday, September 24 2014
Our New Jersey to Ohio adventure is complete and serves as further proof that you can depend on a 40+ year old car for a long journey with the proper preparations. We put 1,100 miles on our Chubb-insured 1969 MGC-GT in our effort to show that collector cars are meant to be driven, and our only regret was not packing ear plugs.The car performed perfectly on our outbound trip, but some braking gremlins made an appearance once we arrived in...
Akron or Bust: We're Westward Bound
Thursday, September 18 2014
Time to see if this little MGC-GT can go the distance. We shoved off from the Chubb Collector Car offices in Whitehouse Station NJ at about 3:00PM and hope to make it to Wellsboro PA by 8:00PM for our overnight stop. Yes, a little out of the way, but it gets us off the highway and should make for a more exciting drive, ie: if we need an auto-parts store, there won't be many. Before we get to Wellsboro, we plan on making a quick stop in...
Akron Or Bust: Test Drive Gone Wrong
Tuesday, September 16 2014
If you're going to take a 45 year old car on a long road trip, you should probably take it for a test drive, right? We headed out last week to see how the MGC-GT would handle a driver and passenger minus luggage. The results were not good. This car had recently been fitted with a larger-than-stock tire to improve the ride quality, but this apparently came at a cost. With the extra person in the car, the tires rubbed in the rear wheel-wells...
Akron Or Bust: 1,000 Miles in a 1969 MGC-GT
Monday, September 15 2014
Back in 2012, we thought it would be a fun idea to take a 1960 MGA and drive it clear across Pennsylvania into Ohio for the Glenmoor Gathering. Little did we know it would be the last year for that wonderful show. Fast forward to the present and we're heading to yet another premier event in Ohio, also in September. It's a great time of year for driving in this part of the country so why not do it again? This time the event is the Stan...
