As you can imagine, Hagerty employs a lot of car people. Many have lived their entire adult lives with a compulsion to buy and drive old cars, and they were fortunate to find a workplace where they could be surrounded by like-minded people. Some had already amassed a small collection of classics by the time they were brought on board. With years of experience behind the wheel of collector cars, we've each been through our share of breakdowns; some of us have even been through a few tire-kicking, hair-pulling exhibitions.
Hopefully these experiences haven't been for naught, and we can chalk them up as life lessons. With that in mind, we asked a few of Hagerty's resident collector-car owners what items they keep in their vehicle to prevent future frustration. Let's take a look at those responses and see what we can learn about the owners and their cars.
If your standby item isn't on one of these lists, let us know about it in the comments.
Of course, the surest way to avoid roadside anguish is with a Hagerty Plus Membership.
