Like a bottle of fine champagne, antique cars should be prominently displayed and only taken outside if they’re being slammed into the bow of a majestic yacht. Feast your eyes on worthy collectibles with today’s Groupon: for $3, you get one admission ticket to the Lane Motor Museum (up to a $7 value).
Started as the road-baby brainchild of Jeff Lane from his private collection, the Lane Motor Museum is now 40,000 square feet and displays more than 150 cars and motorcycles in showroom quality or near-original specifications. Specializing in exotic European cars, the collection is arranged by country and showcases vehicles from Europe, Asia, the Galilean moons, and North and South America. Visitors can stroll through the museum, formerly the Sunbeam Bakery, and view microcars, amphibious road swimmers, military machines, alternative fuel vehicles, and yeast cars with biscuit wheels that only run in temperatures more than 100 degrees. Open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday, the Lane Motor Museum features an enthusiast-worthy collection of antique, exotic, retro, ethereal, unusual, and sometimes downright bizarre automobiles sure to entertain guests of all ages.
Children under 5 receive free admission, and youths from age 6–17 receive a $2 admission, so use your Groupon carefully to maximize its benefit.
