The Joy of Discovery

By Robert Guinness The Moss Motoring Challenge has been a joy for many—and not just for the participants. Over the past eight years I have ventured out into the back roads of America looking for the unusual, the beautiful, and forgotten history as my take on the Challenge. As I traveled in my MGA through…

2019 Moss Motoring Challenge Winners!

What’s a Morgan doing in the Motoring Challenge you might ask? Apparently it’s winning it! Driven by Mark and Glynis Lee, the Morgan drew many fans this year. And we have a feeling its unique, classic beauty—along with the joy on Mark and Glynis’ faces—distracted people from seeing just how many points they were racking…

2018 Motoring Challenge Winners!

Looking back over the year, it’s hard to pick one thing that stood out in my mind—though I must admit, I got a kick out of all the monster truck photos. But I think the thing that gave me the most joy was hearing about the groups of Challengers getting together and having fun. Without…

I’ve positioned my car in front of a bright green sign announcing “Lac qui Parle County.” As I set up the tripod and camera, a passing Ford pulls over and stops. The driver rolls down his window and asks if I’m having trouble…

Motoring Challenge Reflections

In Oklahoma I found myself on a turnpike between nowhere and somewhere. The crescent moon I had been chasing for the last few hours was giving way to one of those perfect pastel sunrises. The kind you only catch on a clear and crisp morning. While I was lost (both physically and mentally) no worries…

Falling Again for my Second Love

I’d like to share a story with you. I wish I had a great one. I am just a middle age (48) father of two loving daughters with a desire to have some fun. My first MGB was a 1976 I bought when I graduated Penn State in 1989. I loved that car and my…

Motoring Challenge: Name That Tune

An excerpt from our Motoring Challenge Journal 10/13/2013: With the Federal Government shutdown, our San Miguel Island trip got cancelled. So what do we do with a free weekend on our hands? Hmmm. Road trip! The weekend weather looked good, so we planned our Owens Valley trip. The first stop was Quartz Hill in Lancaster….

Favorite Photos of the 2013 Motoring Challenge

At Moss we know British sports cars inside and out. We know our customers well, too, from having spoken to many for years and even decades. The Motoring Challenge, though, gave us here in the office a chance to see our customers using their much loved cars the way they were intended. It’s been such…
