BOTH DATES FOR 2013 ARE SOLD OUT.
Ever dream of driving that special vintage car that you’ve seen at a national car show? Lane Motor Museum can make your dream come true on September 21 or October 5 at our Fourth Annual Rally for The Lane!
Rally for The Lane is a one-day vintage car fan extravaganza. The museum has selected 46 cars from its collection that participants will be able to purchase the right to drive on the rally. Registration will end when approximately 25 have been registered for that day's Rally event.
In addition to being a fun event that our past participants have raved about- this Rally is a fundraiser for Lane Motor Museum that raised over $25,000 last year. The money raised helps to defray the costs of owning, housing, restoring and maintaining the over 330 cars in our collection!
The day will begin at the museum with some car familiarization time and a personal driving lesson for your chosen vehicle. The rally will kick-off at 9:00 a.m. and we'll all head towards Tullahoma, TN. Past rallys have included over 100 miles of driving over the course of the day.
This is a gimmick rally, which means there are questions to answer along the way but it is not a timed event. If you prefer to just enjoy the drive, the questions are optional! The directions will be very clear as we do not want participants getting lost.
When we arrive in Tullahoma, we will all gather at the historic location of the Beechcraft Heritage Museum where we'll enjoy a visit to the museum as well as a lunch in one of their aircraft hangars.
The Beechcraft Heritage Museum is a distinctly original one-of-a-kind, “living and working” aviation museum that traces the lineage of the Beechcraft family of airplanes. The Museum began life as the Staggerwing Museum Foundation, incorporated in October of 1973, under the auspices of the Staggerwing Club.
Following lunch we will begin the second half of the Rally as we work our way back to the museum where we'll enjoy a post-rally reception, a private tour of the museum's basement collection and a trophy presentation!
Finally, for those who would like to continue the fun we have planned an optional group dinner that will be held in the museum's exhibit area- surrounded by our cars! Our friends at Joey's House of Pizza, an amazing family-owned restaurant here in Nashville, will be serving up an authentic italian meal! Cost of dinner is $20/person.
