McKeel Hagerty is the CEO of Hagerty, a specialty provider of classic car insurance and media company. Founded by his parents, the company was originally focused on collector wooden boats. A lot has changed since then. In 1995, he took over and expanded the company to include classic and collector cars. Today, Hagerty has expanded their media presence to include a magazine, web site, events, and YouTube channel.

On this show we talk about the direction of car enthusiasts, why Hagerty is everywhere, what their goal is, collecting trends, driving events, having fun at 19MPH, scary hyper cars, the EV impact, and the $500 Porsche project car he's owned since he was 13.
