Classic cars making "The Drive Home" to Detroit

Three classic cars are making a road trip from Washington state to Detroit and will get here just in time for the 2016 North American International Auto Show.

A 1957 Chevrolet Nomad, 1966 Ford Mustand and 1961 Chrysler 300G are making the nearly 3,000-mile trip which they're calling, "The Drive Home." The vehicles, which are part of the collection at LeMay - America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Wash. started the journey on Dec. 27.

"Cars are meant to be experienced and driven, not sit and dying in a museum," LeMay CeO David Mdeira said.

As the cars make the trip home, they will hold rallies at various cities during the journey. It all ends on Jan. 8 with a celebration at Cadillac Square and an iconic drive down Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
