If you've got a '23 Indian Chief or a '65 Dodge Coronet hidden under a tarp in the garage, this is the weekend to blow off the dust. Vintage (i.e. pre-1973) bikes and cars are the guests of honor at this all-day celebration of headlights and horsepower, the brainchild of Nashville musician David Steele and business partner Henry Astor of Astor Motor Productions. By day, take a leisurely drive down the Natchez Trace with fellow gearheads for lunch and a private car collection; then retire to the Lane Motor Museum on Murfreesboro Road for an outdoor show-n-shine, a catered dinner and a concert featuring the Joey Nardone jazz quartet, Nikki Williams and the All Star Motor Jam Band. Stick around for a raffle and a sneak peek at auction items such as a guitar signed by Eric Clapton and memorabilia signed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. The VIP package runs $175, with concert only $25.
