Start Your Engines: America’s Automotive Trust Reveals Vehicle Lineup for The Drive Home III: Driving The Future

DETROIT (FNN NEWS) – America’s Automotive Trust (AAT) and the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) have announced its starting lineup for “The Drive Home III: Driving The Future” (TDH III). Beginning Jan. 3, the 10-day road vintage car rally will begin the journey from Boca Raton to Detroit for the opening of NAIAS.

Previous events in The Drive Home series have focused on vintage automobiles, but to keep things fresh for 2018, this year’s convoy has grown and will also feature a pair of modern vehicles, including a Triumph Thruxton provided by Ace Cafe Orlando and a 2018 GMC Terrain support vehicle, to help tell the story of motoring innovation.

“The past two events in The Drive Home series included three cars from America’s Car Museum, so we’re thrilled that the number of participating vehicles this year has more than doubled,” said AAT Vice Chairman David Madeira. “We’re extremely fortunate to have such a robust list of sponsoring organizations that share our vision of a vibrant future for collector cars. The vintage and modern vehicles joining us this year as we make our way from Florida to Detroit is truly second to none.”

Participating organizations and their vehicles include:
∙ America’s Automotive Trust – 2014 Triumph Thruxton
∙ LeMay – America’s Car Museum – 1972 Chevrolet El Camino
∙ RPM Foundation – 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Sport Coupe
∙ Club Auto/Hagerty – 1962 International Travelette
∙ Concours Club/MFD Classic Motors – 1959 Plymouth Fury
∙ Concours d’Elegance of America/Kettering University – 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
∙ The Nicola Bulgari Center for American Automotive Heritage – 1955 Chrysler C-300 Sports Coupe
∙ General Motors – 2018 GMC Terrain Support Vehicle

TDH III presenting sponsor State Farm and supporting sponsors BF Goodrich, Shell, Quicken Loans, Hagerty and Montecristo have recommitted for this year’s rally and will be part of special events, enthusiast gatherings and promotions during the trip.

“State Farm has been involved with America’s Automotive Trust since the inception of America’s Car Museum, as well as the first Drive Home in 2015. We have been impressed seeing the joy it has brought to people across the country over the past two years and it’s a great time to remind people to drive safely and be prepared for winter weather,” said State Farm Advertising Director, Ed Gold. “As the nation’s leading Auto Insurance company for the past 75 years, the opportunity to celebrate America’s motoring heritage – and support the organization that’s fighting to preserve it – is an honor and responsibility that we are dedicated to.”
