The tradition continues on with Hagerty Dawn Patrol! We'll miss seeing you in person this year for coffee and donuts in Monterey, CA but that won't stop us from celebrating the joy of driving the cars we love. And earning a coveted hat in the process.
Set your alarm for Sunday, 16 August 2020 and take a drive between 6-9 a.m.
Whether this is your 7th hat or your first, with this time honored tradition you'll join the ranks of a magical club of car lovers - and hey, you can always nap later!

It is a cool, 57 degree, and damp morning in the far western mountains of Maryland. In my 1972 Javelin AMX, we basically had the road to ourselves at dawn, but I could feel the presence of thousands of classic car enthusiasts as I drove the winding mountain roads of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Have a great day everyone!

While I'm not in Monterey this year which would have been year 20 in a row this is the car I would have driven there with my best friend Trent Abbott all the way from Connecticut. I'm wearing the suit I bought for this year's Pebble Beach Concours as well. I miss all of you very much but happy that Hagerty is trying to bring some fun into the hobby with this fun thing.
Missed running into you at the 2019 Pebble event. Let's hope that Amelia Island won't be cancelled. That was the last event I got to attend in 2020 before Coved-19 put the hold on all car shows. Watching the S. Florida sunrise with a Dune Buggy ride this morning!
Like Pebble Beach, I also had to cancel my Dawn Patrol cruise, since the sidewalks in front of my property are being replaced and I can't cross the void. But I will return next year (my 30th).
