Going to Glenmoor 2012
The Glenmoor Gathering is one of the premier concours events, and is held each September in Canton, Ohio. The show hosts invitation-only vehicles from all over the country and typically features a historically significant class of cars. This year, the focus is on early supercharged cars as well as vehicles bodied in Europe with American power. As regular readers of this space know, the Chubb team never misses a major concours, and we've been proud to be affiliated with the Glenmoor Gathering for the past three years.
We'll be back at Glenmoor once again this month, but we decided that we need to elevate our game. Rather than flying to Cleveland and renting some boring modern wheels for the weekend, we've decided to embark on a 1,000 mile road trip in a 1960 MGA 1600. The car is owned by one of our team members, and is of course, insured with a Chubb Collector Car policy. Is there a better way for us to prove that we really mean it when we say that classic cars should be driven?
We'd like your help in planning the journey. We want your input on how we should prepare the car, what stops we should make along our route and any critical equipment we should bring. We want to hear your feedback in the comments section on our blog at Chubbcollectorcar.com or on our Facebook page. Are we crazy to expect a British roadster to take us over 800 miles in a weekend? What do we need to make the trip a success? Any must-see roadside stops in Pennsylvania or Ohio? The MGA might only hold two people, but we'd love it if hundreds of you come along for the ride as our advisors.
In the coming days, we'll introduce you to the drivers, the car and the challenges they'll face when trying to fit themselvs and gear into this small British classic.
