Hey guys….if you’re looking for a SUPER COOL place to take your kids for an afternoon, you gotta take them to the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville. You’re not gonna see a bunch of old Chevelles and the ordinary old car stuff, this place is jam packed with rare and exotic vehicles from all over the world….its a nice quiet peaceful calming afternoon, kind of like a NAMM show right?
You might even see Uncle Larry and his two sweet boys there.
