Get Behind the Wheel of a Classic Car at a Ride and Drive with DriveShare.

When you're physically in control of a vehicle – whether you own it or not – there's a sense of freedom and excitement that will never compare to riding in an autonomous module. Road trips, Sunday drives, special occasions, cruises down the coast – these are things we want to hold on to as driving evolves.

While we discuss the future of the automobile, join us for a taste of the past at DriveShare's Ride and Drive. It’s your chance to get behind the wheel of a classic car.

DriveShare by Hagerty® is a new kind of car-sharing platform, connecting people with rental cars people want to drive. Cruise by the Ride and Drive and learn more.
