The Lane Motor Museum Nashville TN

   We have been to a number of car museums but none as unique as this one. This is not your typical car museum. There are cars here from all over the world. Their web site just wets your appitite. See  Their are propeller driven cars, the largest collection of European cars in the US, amphibious cars, motorcycles, race cars, and one of a kinds, etc. We were amazed at all the 3 wheeled cars. See the photo for the reason why there were so many. We truly enjoyed this museum. The museum is housed in a former Sunbeam bakery. There are many photo's of its pasted history. Here is just a sampling of the many photo's we took.
