HRR April 2018 Driving Tour
Apr 28 all-day

Calling all HR&R Members:  please make plans to join us Saturday (4.28.18) when we take a road trip to two new places!

Our Route Masters Russ & Pat Barnes will provide the scenic road tour and hopefully I’ve planned a day you’ll enjoy!
Our first stop will be The Possum Holler Garage in Sawdust Tennessee. Advertised as “The Leading Vintage Truck Restoration Shop in the country. Well known for Original and custom ” Frame Off” restorations. Repeatedly “Topping the Market” at Mecum Auctions and Barrett Jackson Auctions across the nation”.
They also restore an occasional Vintage soda Machine or Vintage Gas Pump, and don’t forget about the “Classic Car Sofas” they create as well.

We will then stop at Framers Family Restaurant in Columbia for lunch. It’s a buffet prices at $ 9.99 /person.
Our second stop will be the home & car collection of Lanny & Lois McGowan in Nolensville TN. Lanny is an ole Model A Ford guy with quite a collection of beautifully restored cars!


Nashville Cars and Coffee @ Franklin Carmike Cinema
Apr 28 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Cars and Coffee is every Sat. from 8-10:30am at the Carmike Cinemas Parking lot in Franklin, TN. The first Sat. of the month is “exotic” Cars and Coffee.

Don’t forget to bring your folding chair so you can eat and just take a load off.

Nashville Cars and Coffee

There are two items of consideration that everyone needs to keep in mind;

1) There are no trash receptacles in the Carmike Theater parking lot, so it will be each person’s responsibility to make sure that they pick up their coffee cup, biscuit wrappers, napkins and other forms of trash and dispose of the refuse in the proper location. The demise of most Cars and Coffee events has been due to trash and what kind of condition the parking lot has been left in after the Cars and Coffee.

2) Driving onto and exiting the parking lot – PLEASE DRIVE SLOW AND RESPONSIBLY! The second reason for the demise of Cars and Coffee events has been how participants drive into and out of the Cars and Coffee site. As mentioned before “testosterone and horse power is a dangerous mix”. Please enter the parking lot slowly, drive through the parking lot slowly and exit the parking lot slowly. Once you have left the parking lot and are on Frasier Drive, continue to drive appropriately. If you feel the “need for speed” and to “throttle up”, please at least wait till you are a mile away from the parking lot before you do anything. We do not want that activity to be associated with the Cars and Coffee event.


First Saturday of the Month: Remember that the first Saturday of each month is the Exotic Car Saturday.

The admins of this event do not support reckless and dangerous driving behavior in or outside of Cars and Coffee.
