They don't make things the way they used to. In many cases, that's a good thing. For example, compare the power and size of your handy smartphone to some of the first bulky cellphones that weighed in at around 2 pounds. Today's technology is so much better.
However, there are some things that I truly miss, like classic cars. The older I get, the more I appreciate these wonderful vehicles. Good news, now there's a service that will let you have some time with your dream car.
How to rent your dream car from a collector
What we're talking about is a premiere enthusiast car rental community. It's a peer-to-peer car-sharing service for exotic and classic vehicles called DriveShare by Hagerty.

According to its site, "Automotive enthusiasts now have the ability to experience a wide range of fun and unique vehicles, while classic and collector vehicle owners can offset expenses by renting their cars to pre-screened, highly qualified renters. Every rental includes $1 million in insurance protection and access to the most comprehensive full-service roadside program designed specifically for unique cars.
"Whether a person is looking for a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air for a night out on the town or a 1979 Ferrari 308 for a drive down the coast, DriveShare connects owners with renters and is free to join with no costly membership fees."
This service is great for collectors who don't have the time to take their vehicles for a drive as often as needed. Older cars need to be driven from time to time to keep them in good working condition.
Renters go through a strong vetting process before they can rent a car. Once approved, they'll put down a $500 deposit and can search for dream cars available in the area.
If you have a classic car of your own, you can rent it to others on the site. It's a great way to cover some of the costs associated with collecting vintage automobiles.
