So, I traveled about 1100 miles, went through the Tail of the Dragon on the way out, got stopped in traffic on the interstate highway on the way back, saw some good long-time friends before I left town and before that met some great internet strangers and geeked out about cars with them.

That is what I call a good weekend.

I also apparently took about 150 photos, and I was being restrained. I will provide you with a small selection that I particularly enjoyed. We start with Cars and Coffee at Cool Springs, and quickly move on to the Lane Motor Museum. Other photos have been included in other posts, such as the drive there and in comments on other people’s posts.

I like this green on a nice looking Cobra

So, that was some of the Nissan collection. The Lane had many other strange and wondrous vehicles . . . So many I couldn’t take a photo of every one that deserved it, and I will try to only show you some of the best of those that I did take, but it is extremely subjective. Starting with ones in the basement:

So, we had a great lunch organized by OpposResidentLexusGuy and his family, had a road rally to a distillery, then began to go our separate ways. Au revoir until next time!
