The Drive Forward Rally

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday October 16

9:00 AM  –  3:00 PM

Be part of The Drive Forward, a series of day drive across the country to support America's Automotive Trust's movement to keep car culture alive during this unprecedented time. The Drive Forward is part of the "Rally Across America" national effort to raise $1Million dollars for local charities across North America in the absence of car shows and concours events during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now more than ever, driving is about pleasure not a commute. Simply going for a pleasurable drive provides a sense of freedom. We believe The Drive Forward can be a beacon of hope, provide a sense of calm and normalcy in what has otherwise been a very uncertain time and offer enthusiasts an opportunity for enjoyment. 

The Drive Forward rally will begin with a Cars & Coffee at Platinum Motorcars in Birmingham, Michigan. Then buckle up as we take twisting roads with beautiful lake views to the LaFontaine Heritage Collection in Milford, Michigan. Taking his passion for all things automotive, Michael LaFontaine Sr. has amassed a collection of 150+ iconic heritage vehicles that are displayed in an old bowling alley he converted into the ultimate garage. Lunch will be served amongst the Concours winning vehicles and automotive memorabilia. After lunch we will take quick drive to LaFontaine Classic Cars, a showroom that aims to bring buyers back in time to a more classic feel, including vintage signs from vehicle brands of the past. Not only are there vehicles in the showroom, but the parking lot to the south contains many others available for purchase. Following our private tours, the caravan will take a meandering route back to Birmingham. 

Proceeds will benefit America's Automotive Trust to preserve America's automotive heritage and U CAN-CER VIVE to provide vital funding for cancer research.
