Is anyone here on the Drive Home?


Each year, America’s Automotive Trust puts on the Drive Home, a cross-country tour for vintage vehicles traveling to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show.

This year, to celebrate the return of a legend, the drive will be open exclusively to Mustang enthusiasts. If that’s you and you share a passion for top-down, open-air freedom, join us with your Mustang at any point in the nine-day drive.

We’ll kick things off in Tacoma, WA on Sept 6th and stop at historic Pony Express routes & locations along the way to be a part of the Mustang legacy. Oh, and did we mention there’ll be a camouflaged seventh-generation Mustang along the journey? You won’t want to miss it.
