“I can sleep when I’m dead.” It’s the humorous battle cry coined by those who rise and shine before the sun and get stuff done. It’s also the mentality required to set your alarm for 4 a.m., brave the cool morning breeze at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, and watch some of the world’s greatest automobiles arrive at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance each year. It isn’t as crazy as cutting a hole through the ice of a frozen lake and joining the slightly odd dunkers in the Polar Bear Club, but it’s a stretch for many car enthusiasts. So, beyond the awesome cars, what is your reward for becoming a hearty member of the Hagerty Dawn Patrol? Donuts. Coffee. And, as anyone who has ever participated can attest, the cerise sur le sundae is an exclusive Dawn Patrol hat, which proclaims to the world that you’re no ordinary car lover.

I more than enjoyed this event and so did my daughter. Perhaps in years to come this could happen again as a virtual event for those that can't make it is California with mini gatherings all over America. Those that are on the Green get regular hats, and those not on the green get hats that are marked and Virtual Dawn Patrol.
Lets get more of these cars out and into the public eye.
Fun activity! It sparked me to get out of the house early, meet fam and friends (social distancing of course) and have coffee. Can’t wait to see what response I get wearing the hat! Thanks
I’m a first timer, I love I can share in the event from where I am. In PA its scheduled to rain but I’ve precautious. I have a 70 Pontiac lemans sport that I absolutely love to drive it gets so much attention. People ask about the color and age old question what’s under the hood.
I will be up and have my 1998 Black, Convertible Corvette, buffed and ready to tour the beautiful back highways of Vermont. You would not believe how much new blacktop is in northern Vermont. Makes for some awesome cruising! Everybody enjoy, have a great day and stay safe!!
Come on Sunday! Lookin' forward to joining the Dawn Patrol. Not sure what country road I'll travel or how far I'll drive but getting on the road and out of the house is going to be worth every mile.🕕🚘🕘
