February Tour Directions

“Lane Museum – Mini Cars Tour

Depart at 9:30 am – (approx. 80 mi – round trip) 

MEETING LOCATION – “Loafers Glory” – 3511 Lebanon Pike,

Murfreesboro, TN 37129

 Tom will have a pot of coffee and donuts, plus there are multiple, clean rest rooms on site.  For those who haven’t been to Tom’s “Warehouse”, come early to see his collection and visit with friends.  And for those that want a chance to have their Classic/Collectible or Modern Iron photo for the webpage and be shown for a couple months, be there by 8:30 for a photo drawing and a chance to be featured on the site for two months.  (For those who will need to know; the restroom stop is approximately a 1 hour drive)

We also are fortunate to have a limited number of Admission bands for the May 5th or 6th Renaissance Festival given to us by HR&R club member Mike Freeman.  If you didn’t get one at the Charismas Party, be sure to see Pat Barnes to get yours.
