2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid, 2022 MAMA Spring Rally

2023 Kia Sportage Hybrid

At Consumer Guide Automotive, our editors attend manufacturer-hosted press events around the country to get our first-drive opportunities of soon-to-arrive new vehicles—that’s how we produce most of our First Spin test-drive reviews. However, we also participate in regional press events hosted by the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) for additional new-vehicle drive opportunities. One of the best of these events is the annual MAMA Spring Rally, a journalist-only event held at the excellent Road America race track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

1936 Reo Speedwagon 6AP, Tokay Maroon

1936 Reo Speedwagon 6AP

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2015 issue of  Collectible Automobile magazine

Many independent makes disappeared during the Great Depression, but Reo beat the odds to live on as a truck maker until 1975. What makes the story all the more remarkable is that Reo had to survive not only the Depression, but also its own board of directors.
