The Happening: The Honk, Rattle, and Roll February Classic Car Tour

The Honk, Rattle, and Roll classic car tour on Saturday, February 16 was an awesomely fun event. We had 36 participants and a rainless day to enjoy!
After great coffee, donuts, and conversation at Loafers’ Glory, the tour headed to our first stop, Gateway Classic Cars. The Gateway warehouse was filled with beautiful cars of every description, year, model, and price. Everyone fell in love with the first car on the showroom floor, a 1934 Plymouth coupe in dazzling maroon and only $42,000.

Our second stop was the best stop of all. We met Jeff McGinnis and his crew, house parents, and children of the Baptist Children’s Home in Brentwood. Cheyenne, a ward of the home and an eleventh grader at Brentwood High School, gave our group her personal testimony. She had been living with her grandmother, and they did not get along. When Cheyenne finally ran away from home, she was removed and placed at the Baptist Children’s Home. Cheyenne broke down telling her story, and I don’t believe that there was a dry eye in the place.  

  Our group also toured the homes that are “home away from home for these children.” The homes were clean, neat, and provided a safe place for these children to reassess who they are and to get a fresh start in a beautiful and loving Christian environment.

  Lunch at “Famous Daves” was delicious. The barbecue, French fries, baked beans, hot pickles, and even banana pudding flowed. The staff even visited the parking lots to drool over our classics parked there. 

  Our last stop was at “Streetside Classic Cars.” Again, every year, make, model and price could be found. The 1938 Packard as you entered the showroom was a mere $129,000. The 1958 Imperial stopped everyone for a closer look. Mike Barrett’s showed us his brother’s bright yellow corvette on the floor and for sale.

Great weather, Great time with really great people!  Tom & Pearl Vasser Host

November Dine Out

We had another good turn out for our November 13th Honk Rattle & Roll Dine Out Night with 44 in attendance! This activity was Hosted by Janet Fulton & Tom Collins at Champy’s World Famous Fried Chicken. Thanks to Arleen Timbs for the great pictures below. 

   

October Driving Tour Pictures

The Fall Colors and Tables by the Lake Tour turn out was very good despite the early rains. Several old cars were driven and by late morning I’m sure others that didn’t bring out their old iron wished they had. The ride to the collections and the restaurant was not the most scenic the “Fall Colors” didn’t live up to expectations since the leaves are just starting to turn, however the “Tables by the Lake” lived up to it’s name by providing a great view of the lake, nice boats and a couple nice homes.

The collections of John Jennings and Larry King were very diverse providing every member at least one vehicle they would like to have in their garage. Both hosts were very gracious trusting and allowing us to freely roam their facilities at our own pace. Also, if you remember, Larry King invited anyone from our club to show up at his shop on Thursday’s for an ongoing get together with other car enthusiasts.

We hope everyone enjoyed lunch at “The Rudder” located at Anchor High Marina in Hendersonville where we were provided a private room and dedicated waiter so that we could enjoy each other`s company without distractions.
