Music City Mashup at Lane Motor Museum

I have always been a big fan of road trips, and, as a rather restless person, I am always looking for new adventures. Road trips appeal to me personally on a number of different levels. I love to travel and experience new places and things, and I love to drive, which is what this automotive writing thing is all about.

In addition to the above, I love music. I can get comfortably lost in the tunes when I am on the open road, and the time flies while I'm on my way to a destination.

Ideally, I like to combine my passions when I pick out a spot that I want to visit. Nashville is a very enticing place to set your sights on if you share my love of cars, music, history, and unique slices of American culture.

First off, the music thing is pretty self-evident, and, though Nashville is known for country music, you can hear all kinds of music in the city, seven days a week. The nights are certainly going to be full, and there are countless great restaurants as well, because Nashville is truly a world-class city.

American Pickers is probably my favorite television show, and I love the history that is embedded within antiques. These objects tell extraordinary tales, and Mike and Frank from the show are especially into cars and motorcycles and essentially anything transportation related. This combination is right in my wheelhouse when it comes to personal interests.

If you have never watched the show, these guys travel around the country buying antiques for their store that is called Antique Archaeology. There is a location in Nashville, and a visit to the store is certainly something that is on my bucket list. You will find plenty of automotive-related stuff at the store, but there is another stop that you have to make if you are a car buff.

The Lane Motor Museum is also located in Nashville, and there are some phenomenal, rare vehicles on display there. European cars are the order of the day, and you can learn a great deal about automotive history from across the drink if you pay the museum a visit.

The Lane Motor Museum is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but it is open every other day of the week. The admission is a modest nine dollars for adults, and just three dollars for kids.

If you want to whet your appetite for a visit, you can browse their extraordinary collection here: Lane Motor Museum.
