NASHVILLE, TN — For his love of cars and automotive, Jeff Lane established Lane Motor Museum in 2002, which is a non-profit organization based in Nashville. He has been an enthusiast of the automotive industry since an early age.

He began restoring his first car in his teenage years. Over the years, his personal collection has grown and was donated to the museum. Lane Motor unveiled its collection to the public in 2003. Jeff Lane still continues his search for cars to be displayed at the museum and grow the collection.

Currently, Lane Motor Museum is one of the few museums in the U.S. to display European cars. This is also a working museum and at the same time maintains the vehicles in running order.

The Museum had been developed in a well-known Nashville landmark, at the Sunbeam Bakery, located at 702 Murfreesboro Pike. The 132,000 square-foot facilities used to be the largest and most modern bakery in the area in 1951, and the building fulfills the museum’s needs, leaving many of the details of the building in its original characteristics including high ceilings, natural light, and hand-crafted brick and maple wood flooring. Also, the architectural style complements the cars on display.

Their mission as a museum is to collect, preserve, document, and interpret an interesting collection of cars and other transportations. They wanted to educate people about its history and at the same time preserving them for future generations.

Lane Motor Museum is currently open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with price tickets varied from $3 for age 6 to 17, $8 for seniors age 65 above, and adults $12 for age 18 to 64.

Lane Motor Museum displays cars from 1920 to the present time, motorcycles, flying, floating, bicycles, and others collection. They also have cars for sale due to the limited storage in the museum.
