Challenger Spotlight: Madison Hutchinson

I’ve always been a “Gearhead Gal,” and always will be. I mean, c’mon, how can you not when you have a dad like mine? I grew up in the shop, covered in grease, and surrounded by beautiful cars. We’ve owned all types of them, but we’ve always had a thing for MGs (we’re on number…

A Wedding Triumph

One fall day in my early childhood my father was readying his cars for an event. Usually, he would tinker on one or two at a time, but never all four at once. It turned out that my uncle requested the use of all the families’ classic cars in a brilliant and bold procession from…

Dad’s Little Red Car: A Family Affair

Dad discovered his love for British cars when he was just 15 years old. He and his high school friend spent their spare time working on his friend’s Bug Eyed Sprite. It wasn’t long before Dad bought his own car­–a 1967 MGB GT for just $200. It needed some work but before he could finish…

My MGB Connection

It all started when my friend Chris let me drive his ’74 MGB a few years ago. I only drove it for a few miles but there was something about it that made me feel connected to the road and the machine I was sitting in. The steering took some effort as did the brake…

Falling Again for my Second Love

I’d like to share a story with you. I wish I had a great one. I am just a middle age (48) father of two loving daughters with a desire to have some fun. My first MGB was a 1976 I bought when I graduated Penn State in 1989. I loved that car and my…

Mom’s Car

It was a stunning Sunday afternoon in Texas, a top down day if there ever was one. As I drove with a cigar set firmly between my teeth, I took in all the senses that only a car like this can provide, senses poetically described by the rock band Rush, in a song from their…

My Father’s Daughter

My dad has always had a special radar for spotting classic cars on the street and quickly shouting out the year, make and model. For my brother, sister and I, the shout outs were part of our upbringing. Still today it amazes me that he can look at a car for a split second and…

Monica’s Restoration

People order things online all the time—books, clothes, electronics, and so on. Not many buy a rusted out British sportscar and ship it 400 miles, uncovered, in northeast November weather. And, for those that do, few of these projects become completed, road-worthy cars. And of those that get finished, I only know of one that…
