Hey All,

For my summer internship with the Historic Vehicle Association (www.historicvehicle.org) I went along on the 2012 Hemmings Motor News Great Race. The race began in Traverse City, Michigan and wound its way North and then East through Ontario, back down into the States in New York, through Pennsylvania, Ohio and concluded in Dearborn, MI at the Henry Ford Museum!

We began the race in a 1954 Oldsmobile Super 88 that was aptly named "Miss Adventure."

Living up to its name, however, we didn't make it too far into the race before its continued mechanical problems put us out of the race. We continued following along on the race regardless, photographing the event and doing video's for our This Car Matters movement.

Check out these pictures I took and if you would like to see more, head on over to our Facebook page!

Paul,

With 11 starts and 10 finishes you would be well aware of the slogan "To Finish is to Win!" Although we didn't finish the race in the Oldsmobile, it was great to see the race to the finish in Dearborn! What an event! Great cars and most of all great people!
