Robert Shadoin

Our October 19, 2019 tour will take us from Tom Collins’ Loafers’ Glory to Shelbyville, Tennessee.  We will be leaving Tom’s at 8:30 am sharp and arriving at Street Rods by Michael at 10:00. We will offer a morning venue, lunch and an afternoon venue. 

Our morning visit will be at Street Rods by Michael in Shelbyville.  Michael & his wife Rose have been in business for over 25 years and have built many award winning cars & trucks.  They build everything from the frame up through painting. I don’t think that you will be disappointed as to Michael’s capabilities in building, designing and developing. Check out his website address .  They are located at 120 Deery Street, Shelbyville, TN. 

After visiting Michael, we will have lunch at 12:00 noon at Legends of Shelbyville, located at 1609 N Main St, Shelbyville, TN 37160.  They have a lot of space for us and offer a burger special ( any of their Burgers, no sides ) for $3.99.  You might check out their website at .  We will need an head count on the Monday, October 14 before the event, so please email or call 615.584.4848 so that we can add your name and number of folks to our list.  We will confirm the headcount to the restaurant on the 19th, Saturday morning as we leave Loafer’s Glory.

After having a great lunch at Legends, we will travel to the late Garland King’s Private Collection arriving around 1:30 pm. His collection is now being managed by his son Gary King.  Gary and his wife will discuss the collection with us and be our hosts. The extensive collection includes classic cars, metal toys, signs, photographs, receipts, pencils & hundreds of other items, making it perhaps the most complete collection of Bedford County history in existence. The museum is in an expansion mode with the purchase of the school behind the current museum.  The new building will eventually house Garland King’s current collection as well as Gary King’s and Gary’s uncle’s collection, as well as the Fire Trucks in storage. There is no charge for this event.

Please don’t forget to bring lawn chairs and to wear you Honk Rattle and Roll Name Tags and apparel.
