Lane Motor Museum Visit – 3/18/2017

What a great visit to the Lane Motor Museum on Saturday, March 18th!  Three Middle Tennessee AACA clubs came together to view the unique collection of automobiles housed at the museum: Music City AACA, the Battlefield Region AACA, and our own Honk, Rattle and Roll Touring Region.  In addition to the cars on the show floor, two basement tours were conducted that revealed the many cars being restored, maintained, or simply waiting for their time on display.  This basement tour also included a special viewing of unique Datsun/Nissan vehicles; these vehicles required special permission from Nissan North America to view and are not normally seen on basement tours.  Thanks to Randy Shemin for coordinating the event and access to the Nissan collection!

February Tour

The first H.R.&R. driving tour for 2017 is history. Our thanks go out to the Barnes and Wilsons for organizing this event. 

33 members and friends met at Collins’ Loafers Glory on February 18th for the trip to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.  The weather was overcast with light rain.  However, Butch Roth said that light rain or mist doesn’t count against his record for predicating  good weather for a driving event.

February Tour Update

H.R.&R. members, PLEASE remember that we need all those who want to take the February 18th tour to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green to be signed up with me by February 1st.  So far we have 38 people signed up, but we have room for more.  Here are a few other details about the event:

* Guy Wilson is pre-paying for all guests and you do not have to pay him until the morning of the tour.  The Museum insists on prepayment; however they also guaranteed that if we have inclement weather and cannot make the tour they will give us the option of rescheduling or a full refund. Remember the cost is $25 per person, including lunch and special presentations by members of the Museum staff.  And since Guy doesn’t have a credit card machine, please bring cash in correct change if possible on the morning of the 18th.

February Tour Details

Depart at 9:00 am – (approx. 176 mi – round trip) 

MEETING LOCATION “Loafers Glory” – 3511 Memorial Blvd, Murfreesboro, TN 37129

 In spite of Tom being gone he has arranged for those that need caffeine to have pots of coffee and snacks in his lodge. There is a clean rest room on site. For those who need it, the first restroom stop is approximately a one hour drive. If you have to stop earlier along the way, do it and just get back on 231 and meet us at the 30 minute restroom stop at Westmoreland.  Note; the warehouse and car shop will not be open without Tom being present.

REMEMBER: If you are signing up to have your Classic – Collector car or Modern Iron car photos taken, please try to arrive at least 30 minutes before we depart for Rick Jones to capture you and your rider(s) photos.  This was described in Tom’s reminder on the 31st.

NOTE: This is a two lane, 55mph drive, which means that there are many miles that we will need to travel 58-60mph, if it is dry.  PLEASE do not encumber those who live and work along the roads. And if the traffic circle in Lebanon slows us, don’t worry there is plenty of road to catch up.
