Even the most scenic drives can be made a little better with some entertainment. We dug into the archives to remember the games we loved playing on car rides as kids. These games have just the right amount of competition mixed in to guarantee an exciting road trip.
Some stretches of a drive call for silence so you can truly appreciate what’s happening outside your car, but a great playlist is essential for a road trip. You need the right mixture of songs and genres to ensure you won’t get sick of your playlist and switch back to the radio. Don’t feel like putting together your own playlist? We put one together that has something for everyone. Listen to the #MorriesRoadTrip playlist on Spotify.

Polar Plunge – Saturday, March 4th
The Minneapolis Polar Plunge is this weekend, and our team from Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru will be out there plunging the day away! The weather is currently projected to be in the 40’s, which doesn’t make it great for lake plunging…but it could certainly be worse! This event benefits Special Olympics of Minnesota, and is certainly a worthwhile way to spend an afternoon!
This is one of the most noteworthy Japanese race cars ever produced, the Mazda 767B. Particularly, we have chassis 003 here for auction, which was driven by the Mazda holy trinity of Yoshimi Katayama, Takashi Yorino, and Yojiro Terada at the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans, where this car took the GTP class win. That of course isn’t the only race this competed in, it took home podiums at Fuji and Le Mans every time it was entered by Mazda and a small book of additional races later in its life.
