Blast from the Past

There’s a charming town in Middle Tennessee, almost on the southern Kentucky border, called Red Boiling Springs. Known in the late 1800s as a premier health and tourist destination because of the mineral springs discovered there, different factors eventually reduced interest and it is now a small town of about a thousand.

Every September, one of the remaining historic hotels – The Thomas House – hosts the Antique Automobile Club of America and their unique array of classic vehicles. It is one of our favorite car shows – from the rolling, beautiful ride there to the down-home, sleepy-south atmosphere of the shade tree dotted grounds.

Bring a picnic lunch, purchase a hamburger or hot dog for a few dollars from a local organization, or splurge a whole $10 for one of the buffet style meals at the historic hotels – fried chicken, green beans, biscuits, gravy, and (of course) sweet tea.


Now, the cars:
