What’s This Drive About?
Once you check out some of the upcoming events, if you scroll into August, you’ll notice one called the Motor City Miler. Part of our Woodward Dream Cruise long weekend, this drive will take us from Bronco Basecamp at Groveland Oaks out to Jeff’s Bronco Graveyard. Jeff is one of our trusted Bronco Nation partners and runs one of the world’s largest classic Bronco parts businesses. There, we’ll have lunch, tour the collection of vintage Broncos and Jeff’s space, and participate in a giveaway.
The 36-mile drive to Bronco Graveyard will be fun, too. As much as we love off-roading at BN, dirt drives and scenic slow rolls around town are an excellent way to enjoy your Bronco. One of my favorite memories of late is the B.O.N.E.S’ May It Forward drive we took through the small towns and backcountry of Massachusetts. It’s fun watching people watch the line of Broncos, and there’s camaraderie as you keep an eye out for the Bronco behind you and even as others hold back traffic.
Jeff is located in a beautiful area of Michigan, and we’ll take a scenic drive that lets you spend lots of time steering and never leaves you without something interesting to look at. I even like getting a glimpse of the GM Proving Grounds and imaging the fun it’d be to take a Bronco on the 150 miles there, knowing the great time we had when we got access to a test facility up north.
Our Motor City Miler will lead you through historic neighborhoods, past lakes and ponds, and through rolling countryside spotted with barns and evergreens. Experience approximately 50 minutes of hills, curves, and a changing landscape! The drive is all pavement, except for one section less than a mile long of smooth, hard-packed dirt. All Broncos and Sports are welcome.
