(Editor’s note: During the month of April, the Journal presents a series of stories about vintage rallies and vintage racing. That series begins today with Andy Reid’s article about his participation in the Amelia or Bust road rally. If you have a story about your participation in a vintage rally or race that you’d like to share, please email us at [email protected].)

There are a multitude of driving events for those with collector and classic cars these days — The California Mille, Copperstate 1000, and the Going to the Sun rally to name just a few. But while these are amazing events, they also are expensive, with entry fees starting around $5,000 per car and going up from there to more than twice that figure.

I have been on such rallies and they are, indeed, a lot of fun. But for me, the most fun for the money spent rallies and tours I’ve driven are the lower-cost events. These tend to be much more liberal about the cars you can bring and like some of those cars, they cost a fraction of some of the more expensive events that tend to also attract more expensive vehicles.

The most recent lower-cost rally for me was the pre-pandemic Hagerty Drivers Club Amelia or Bust rally to the 2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. This was a 4-day trek from the Northeast US to the northeast coast of Florida, arriving just in time for the start of festivities there.

I love anything to do with classic cars and vintage cars and I own a few classic cars. I regular attend classic car shows in my spare time.
