A 13-day and 2,400-mile vintage car journey organized by America’s Car Museum will end Friday (Jan. 8). The Drive Home event will conclude in Detroit with a media event and celebration just in time for the start of the North American International Auto Show. Many enthusiasts and fans were eager to participate in the event, and Opportunity Detroit is the latest sponsor to join the ride.
Three striking red vintage cars will roll down Woodward Avenue on Friday to complete the journey, pulling into Detroit’s Cadillac Square. The cars include a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad, a 1961 Chrysler 300G and a 1966 Mustang.
“The auto show is always one of the most exhilarating times in the city, and The Drive Home is a perfect event to serve as a catalyst for exciting times to come,” said Lisa Dancsok, vice president of Rock Ventures and a partner of Opportunity Detroit. “We look forward to continuing to charge the momentum Detroit is gaining while celebrating another year of automotive innovation with a few of the coolest-looking and innovative cars of our city’s past.”
Opportunity Detroit is a partnership between several downtown Detroit businesses, the Detroit Regional Chamber and dozens of civic and philanthropic organizations in the city to promote Detroit as a great place to live, work and play. The Drive Home is the latest one-of-a-kind event Opportunity Detroit is committed to bringing to Detroit.
