Many Americans dream of driving fabulous, unique, vintage cars. The vast majority of Americans never get to actually do it.
Sure, we see them around—I live in Brooklyn and I don’t own a car, but as I walk around my neighborhood, I spy things: a Carman Ghia in robin’s-egg blue, a boxy Land Rover from the 1980s. And I wonder what it would be like, if only for a day, to tool around in a classic.
Well, it’s a whole lot easier to do that for real now, thanks to DriveShare.com, a classic- and exotic-car rental company that used to be known as Classics & Exotics. In June, Hagerty, the insurance company for collector cars and boats, bought Classics & Exotics (for an undisclosed sum), and officially relaunched it this week as DriveShare. Classics & Exotics co-founder Peter Zawadzki was retained as director of DriveShare.
