Americans Are Reminiscing About Historic Cars and Summer Nights at the Drive-In!
Summer has arrived and people are indulging in one of America’s favorite past times: driving. This is the time of year when more people get out on the road whether they are starting a summer vacation or driving to the beach. But their interest in cars isn’t just limited to driving, but to watching racing and reminiscing about cars and summertime.
“There has been a significant increase in people’s interest in watching historic cars compete at race tracks or in events like “The Great Race” which takes drivers from Maine to Florida with a stop in Savannah,” said Tanya A. Bailey, owner of The Great Savannah Races Museum and author of the book The First American Grand Prix: The Savannah Auto Races 1908-1911 “People still reminisce about the fifties and going to the drive-in. There is something that really pulls people to want to see old cars, whether it is on Jay Leno’s Garage or on the road where an historic car encounter is almost as exciting as seeing a celebrity.”
“It’s always interesting to see an historic car in a place where there is a strong link to racing or automobile history. Yet, there are a lot of people who don’t really know that much about the history of these wondrous inventions that we can’t live without: our cars.”The Great Savannah Races Museum website www.greatsavannahraces.com is dedicated to the story of America’s earliest days in automobile racing in Savannah, Georgia, the Home of the First American Grand Prix. Bailey’s book The First American Grand Prix: The Savannah Auto Races 1908-1911 talks about America’s best early race and how it brought about the best system of roads in the world.
