Here in my car/I feel safest of all


I recently paid a visit to Nashville's Lane Motor Museum. In case you didn't know, the Lane Motor Museum, which occupies the old Sunbeam bakery, features the largest collection of European vehicles in the United States. It also has an impressive collection of motorcycles and military vehicles, including an enormous Vietnam War-era land/sea vehicle.

The first car you encounter in The Lane Museum is a 1938 Citro├źn that was modified to run on coal (gas was hard to come by in German-occupied France) ...


And it gets even more interesting after that ...








If you're looking for something to do on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon, I urge you to head over to the Motor Museum. It only costs $7 to get in ($6 if you clip the coupon in the current Nashville Parent magazine).

Update: 'Bout the Vietnam boat ...
