You will have lunch on your own at a location of your choice. There are fine restaurants at both the Mills mall and the Hotel.

What ever you do, make sure you leave time to get to the Grand Ole Opry with time to spare. They have some entertainment before the show but MOST IMPORTANTLY, this is a LIVE RADIO broadcast, so it starts and ends on time. The Opry starts promptly at 7:00PM and is over promptly at 9:00PM.

After the Opry, make your way to our bus for the trip back to Murfreesboro.


Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
