We’ve undertaken some questionable projects here at Hagerty over the years, but last year we finally lost it. Conceived in a moment of insanity – and likely over a couple of beers – someone had the novel idea of building an entire car over four days at the AACA Fall Hershey Swap Meet, using parts sourced on the grounds, while streaming our potentially epic failure live to the world. “Genius!” we agreed, fully immersed in our collective delusion, which we dubbed “Hagerty's Swap to Street Challenge." And, if that wasn’t enough, we decided that upon completion, we’d immediately drive the thing nearly 750 miles home to Traverse City, Mich.
