Lane Motor Museum’s 2017 Microcar Meet- May 26-28, 2017

Join us in Nashville, TN for a Microcar Meet that will take place May 26-28, 2017 (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 and a dinner at the museum that evening.  On Sunday we will take another tour of the area, returning to the museum for a Microcar gymkhana in the afternoon!

Come spend a weekend at the museum and get the chance to see our 500 car collection (of which about 100 are microcars).  We also have approximately 60 motorcycles in the collection. As a special bonus our main exhibit for 2017 Microcar Mania opens Thursday, May 25!

NOTE:  You are welcome to participate even if you do not have or do not plan to bring your microcar.  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 for non-members; $30 per car for members. $20 per person for Saturday dinner at the museum (optional). 

(Deadline Extended– MAY 25 will now be the last day for registration!)
