HRR October Driving Tour – Cheekwood Is Calling

October 7, 2017 all-day
Dick Fleener

Cheekwood wants old cars. This is a tour for OLD IRON! It’s short not many curves, minimal hills, etc, so get your treasure out of the shed.

This will be a little different from most of our tours but should be lots of fun. Cheekwood is providing us with 50 free admissions that day (regular admission is $20 for adults and $18 for seniors) for displaying between 11:00 and 1:00. You are welcome to stay and tour their beautiful gardens as long as you like. Fee admissions will be limited to two per car. Since we are receiving the free admissions because we are displaying old cars the free admissions will first be given to those with old cars (twenty five years old or older; 2018 minus 25 equals 1993 or older). Cheekwood would really appreciate some cars from the 1920s and 1930s. If we don’t have enough old cars and passengers to use the 50 free admissions the remainder will go to those driving newer cars.

Newer cars and guests will be given priority by when they confirmed a reservation for the day! Free admissions priority will also go first to HRR members first and then to guests.

Cheekwood will be having a special day celebrating Landscape Architect Bryant Fleming Day (he designed the gardens at Cheekwood). That day they will have an architectural crowd that will be there for that event. They believe our old/antique cars will be of great interest to these people.  This Celebration will also offer some more activities for our HRR AACA group to enjoy while at Cheekwood.

Since we will be there during the lunch hour you are welcome to pack a picnic basket and eat on the lawn next to your car or order food from the Food Trucks which will be nearby. Cheekwood will also provide a meeting room for those who would rather eat inside or just in case we do have rain that day.

PLEASE NOTIFY DICK FLEENER AT or 615-624-3724 AS SOON AS YOU ARE SURE YOU WILL ATTEND. Free Admission into Cheekwood will be prioritized by how soon you Register and the age of your car. This is a rain or shine event. When you confirm please also let him know what model and year of car you will be driving that day.
