Those were the days... and in 336 places across America, those days still include these days! Visit our site for a link to the map and full article: http://retromotorsusa.com/index.php/blog

Plenty of fond memories from my drive-in days. Back in High School it was the Ironwood Drive In in Michigan, where I often booked passage in the trunk of Mark Wesenberg's '64 Impala.

For us here in south Florida today, the Swap Shop is our local drive-in, opened in 1963 by owner Preston Henn. Think we could get him to schedule a midnight double-feature with American Graffiti & Two-Lane Blacktop?

Speaking of road trips, three classics covered 3,000 miles in 13 days traveling from Tacoma, WA to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show. Our two cents worth and links to the details on the RMU Blog today: http://retromotorsusa.com/index.php/blog-of-rog

Will 2016 be the Year of the Road Trip for you?

Many of us traditionally set new goals around this time of year, and one of my New Year's Resolutions is to spend more time behind the windshield! My goal of attending the annual Turkey Rod Run in November seems doable, given that I have to swap bodies on my '68 Ford before this can happen.

Inspiration for this came in the form of a few articles recently in Hemmings Motor News - the first is about "the mother road" turning 90 this year, the other about great alternates to Route 66 that provide a similar glimpse into life before the inter webs... or the interstate for that matter.

This happened at the same time as I was planning my annual New Year's "Revolution". Permit me to also share the tool that I use for this, as it differs from the typical goal setting advice I'd heard in the past. Though the last two years this method has served me well.

Follow the links here, then come back and comment about your plans to get behind the windscreen in 2016. Going to more car shows? Hitting the track? Participating in Hot Rod's Drag Week? How are you planning to have more Fun on Wheels in the year ahead?

Retro-Mods: Brand-New, Classic Cars

Those who follow the classic car market are familiar with the term "Resto Mod" - classic cars cosmetically restored, sporting drivetrain, suspension, braking and amenities from later-model vehicles. Their popularity is understandable; the perfect marriage of the classic styling of yesterday with the improved performance, handling, safety and comfort of today.

Our start-up, Retro Motors USA will be taking this concept to the next level.

Instead of starting with an old, often rusted, original vehicle and restoring it's shell, cars and trucks from Retro Motors USA are constructed with new steel bodies, stamped out by American manufacturers. Using all new drivetrains, chassis and running gear, we create Brand-New, Classic Cars.

Is the world ready for "Retro Mods"? Seemingly so, with the recent passage of HR 2675. This legislation permits niche manufacturers like us to build up to 325 vehicles annually while remaining exempt from the onerus requirements that the NHSTA places on automotive manufacturers for things like five mph impact-absorbing bumpers. We're thankful for all the hard work done by the SEMA Action Network in getting this legislation passed.

For those who want to drive the car of their dreams, we'll provide a brand new way to buy with confidence. The manufacturers whose products we represent and the builders who assemble these bespoke vehicles not only enjoy more business, but also benefit from the flywheel effect of the marketing engine we create for each ride.

And since we believe every great company should do something good, Retro Motors USA supports classic cars built "by veterans, for veterans" and the efforts to "bring back shop class", so those with mechanical aptitude can benefit from better training earlier in life.

Whether you're curious about driving a cooler car or serious about one or more of the business opportunities we are creating, we'd love to hear from you. Investor enquiries are welcomed as well.

Please visit RetroMotorsUSA.com to learn more, and by all means share with the motor heads in your tribe.

Let's talk about cars!
