Spring Microcar Meet


Lane Motor Museum's Microcar Meet

May 23-25, 2014

Join us in Nashville, TN for a Microcar Meet that will take place May 23-25, 2014 (Memorial Day Weekend). 

The event will start on Friday afternoon with a tour to Percy Priest Lake with rides in the museum's Amphicar (weather permitting).  Saturday's events include a car show at the museum, followed by a tour of downtown Nashville, only 3.5 miles from the museum.  On Sunday we will take another tour of the area, retuning to the museum for a Microcar gymkhana in the afternoon and dinner that evening.  The event will end Monday morning at 9:00 am when we send off the Route 66 Vespa group from the museum.

Come spend a weekend at the museum and get the chance to see our 400 car collection (of which about 100 are micro cars).  We also have approximately 60 motorcycles in the collection.

NOTE:  You are welcome to participate even if you do not have or do not plan to bring your micro car.  All we ask on the tours is that the micro cars go first and then the modern cars follow.  On the tours we will have a rescue van and trailer following the tour.

Registration Fee: $35 per car; $25 per person for Sunday dinner (optional). 

(Please note- MAY 19 will be the last day for registration!)
