Carpingo's car-sharing system takes the ownership out of “car ownership,” leaving drivers with to explore the wide-open road without the usual hassles. After locating a vehicle near their home or office, members reserve it for the length of time they need, from as little as one hour for a grocery run to an entire day for a grocery run to Virginia. Once it’s time to roll, a simple swipe of their membership card grants them access to the driver's seat and free reign of their temporary automobile. When finished, they return the vehicle to its reserved Carpingo spot, where it reminisces about its auto-factory days and waits for another member in need of transportation. While members enjoy the driving benefits of car ownership, Carpingo staff members handle the maintenance side, taking cars for any needed oil changes and garage visits.

Your day begins, a la James Bond, in the elegant confines of Classic Car Club Manhattan at 9 a.m. with coffee and a briefing on each car. Once you're fully educated on what makes the Nissan GT-R, F430 Ferrari, Lamborghini Gallardo, Shelby Cobra, and others so darn cool, you'll get to tear up some road matter with each of them, with lunch served along the way. You'll be back at Classic Car Club by 5 p.m., just in time for a cocktail hour, during which you may chat with your fellow drivers about which ride was the sweetest. Or you can just sit and make dazed vroom-vroom noises for the entire hour. Classic Car Club Manhattan is used to that.
