“Great service, beautiful car. I can thorougly recommend”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

I hired the Open Road's 66/67 Ford Mustang and was not disappointed. My partner was thoroughly overjoyed with the driving day and the proposal didn't go too badly either!
Tony was both friendly and professional and miraculously fit us in with short notice Great service, beautiful car, I would thoroughly recommend.

“great day out - superb organisation by the providers”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Re-living old times? Hankering after a past experience? Maybe simply wondering how things used to be... Give this a go!! Superb classic cars (I had the pleasure of a Triumph Stag for the day) - its easy to forget the joys of having to actually think about driving ... although the Stag did have "power steering" (of a sort!!) its good old Servo Brakes - without ABS (don't brake in the corners.... ), a rumbling, powerful V8, gear change thats a bit like stirring porridge... great fun.
Not know where to visit - noworries, Tony and Elaine will give you suggested routes through the lovely local countryside. Also - let them provide a picnic lunch .. superb!!
A great value day out... and a very professional couple providing it -- enjoy!

“Car hire with a traditional twist”
Reviewed 1 June 2011

The Open Road hires a selection of classic cars to the public. We chose a Triumph TR4A for the day and covered may miles exploring Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside. The TR4A was close to original specification with a few modern tweaks for reliability. Tony the owner was helpful before and on collecting the car.

“A splendid day in an E Type Jag”
Reviewed 18 May 2011

I had been mucked around by some other classic car hire operations and found The Open Road on an internet trawl. Very professional operation, and the car was brilliant. I will not bore you with the details, but the day was all I wanted, the car was in fine fettle, and I had a gripper of a day.
