American Collectors Insurance announced it will pack its bags and hit the open road for American Detours, an exciting new web series that pairs classic American roads with classic collector cars. American Collectors has selected the first destination and is letting the public ride “shotgun” by helping to choose the other destinations and pit stops. Customers and auto enthusiasts will be given the opportunity to vote on what scenic roads American Detours should visit next as well as provide input on what “can’t miss” spots should be incorporated into the road trip. Voting opens October 15 through October 29 and every day one lucky voter will be randomly chosen to receive a $100 American Express gift card.
Enthusiasts can cast their votes on either the American Collectors Facebook page: www.facebook.com/americancollectors or website: www.AmericanCollectors.com/AmericanDetours. Once the votes are tallied and the roads are chosen, the American Collectors team will travel the winning routes– stopping at participants’ suggested local attractions and eateries, and visiting with some automotive experts and enthusiasts along the way.
To help get things started, the historic Brandywine Valley in southern Chester County, PA, will serve as the location of the premiere episode. Its rolling hills were once the site of revolutionary war battles, but now are home to countless museums, quaint bed and breakfasts, and historic buildings.

· Route 33 north of Ojai, California
