You don't have to be a car enthusiast to have fun at the Lane Motor Museum. Specializing in rare and unusual automobiles that are mainly from Europe, the collection includes microcars, amphibious vehicles, alternative-fuel cars, and propeller-driven examples, such as the fabulous 1932 Helicron from France. More than 150 cars (out of the 400-car holdings) are on display at any given time. A small wing of the museum holds about a dozen unusual motorcycles. Give yourself an hour or two to do justice to this remarkable bunch of cars. (While you're in the area, cast a glance at the Drake Inn, a classic 1940s motel nearby, at 420 Murfreesboro Pike, where scores of country music stars, including Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley, have stayed. Now, this down-on-its-luck establishment with a still-beautiful neon sign attracts a less savory crowd.)
