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!

Dawn in Castle Rock, Colorado, with the sun filtered by wildfire smoke before driving to a mountain hike. Standing with my two best girls. One I've had for 40 years, the other not so long, you figure it out which. The red one is a 1994 Z-28, 5.7 ltr, 6spd, All original, 52,000 miles
Spent quite a while trying to post at dawn and ended up sending it to community and also social media at Hagerty but here it is now getting through, thanks for doing this, we’re in front of 65 Mustang in the family 40 years that our three kids shared all through high school thanks Gordon
I had some technical issues trying to post this, but alas, here is my picture. My numbers-matching, all original 1967 Dart 270 and I going out for our usual Sunday cruise. Happy motoring, friends!
Hello there I organized a Dawn Patrol sunrise meeting and coffee cruise in my small town of Dundas. 8 drivers and 2 dogs turned up at 5:50 am to see the sun come up and get their selfie to send to you today 📷 It was a good turnout for being so early in the morning on a beautiful summer day. We met in town and then travelled up the ofSydenham hill, one of the steepest grades around at about 8% over a 1.25 km climb up the hill to a quaint little lookout to watch the sunrise and grab our hatworthy shots! Then we did a short cruise to a Flambourough bakery and coffee shop for some lovely fresh baked pastries and a cuppa java that we needed after being up so early 😎 Here are some of our selfies from this morning and please note that my dog who is a loyal Volksdawg took a few pics of herself by my car and hopes that she will get a hat too! The pretty young girl has a '72 VW and is my niece and will be insuring that with Hagerty but due to Covid and the Ministry offices being closed for so long she could not get her plates etc. very easily. Last year when she purchased her '72 Beetle she did realize that you had to be 26 to be insured by Hagerty so she waited until this year and then the pandemic. No worries she will join you soon with her VW and is a loyal copilot in my 1969 VW Beetle in the meantime and she helped me organize this casual Dawn Patrol cruise and its postings as I am not super techy so she could probally take the dog's hat if you would be kind enough to provide a second one😁 I will include a couple other photos maybe also of the cruise let me know if you would like those thanks very much.
The Drive at Dawn coincided with a Classic Car Cruise in Old Colorado City today. Here is our pic at the event with our 1966 Mustang. Such a great time and a great drive through the historic parts of Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, and Old Colorado City!
Weather was questionable but took these pictures just south of Buffalo, NY at Hamburg Park. The car is a NAF AC Cobra replica built from 1994-96, beautiful 351C power plant, 9” rear and a 4 speed Toploader. Dreams do come true.
