It’s always important to decompress, slow down, and get back to nature when you are busy like the AA crew. It’s easy to get swept away in  the ever buzzing shop. As a way to close out summer 2015, Mike and Jodi closed the Nashville shop for the day so we could paddle down Middle Tennessee’s popular canoeing spot, the Harpeth River. Here are a few snapshots of our little adventure:

First thing, we broke biscuits at The Southern downtown before climbing into our canoes. Check out Mike’s serious Two Lanes swag!

Anyone wanna guess how many selfies we attempted to fit our faces in the frame?

Jodi Wolfe and our shop singer, Lillie Syracuse, lead our gang down smooth (and seriously shallow!) waters.

Still got a couple of boxes of plastic kids clackers, old wooden giant woodworking clamps, all my dads photography stuff dating back to the fifties. I live in a trailer so I’ve got o clear it soon as I’ve been treated for prostate cancer for 5 yrs now, psa is .003 but better prepare

    I see you and Frank come across a lot of old cars etc. Love em. If you ever get up in my country (in the summer time) Rush City Mn. give me a shout. I have some old stuff, besides myself.

    I have one of the first Dodge Magnum/XE from 1978, for 37 years old it’s in fairly good shape. Purchased new in NY, same year, one person owner, never been wrecked, only 52K-miles, I don’t know what went wrong with it it keep stopping and nobody could seem to find out what the real problem was so I parked it. It’s been sitting for about 7 years. just starting to rust a little, but the paint is still pretty fantastic. It’s white, did have half red Vynil top but the red Vynil is no longer. Red inside, bench seat in back, bucket seats in front, basic. could be good restoration project for someone. I have a friend suppose to be coming down from North Carolina, he say he’s intrested in it, restoring cars is his hobby.

      The Chrysler products of this era had a lean burn system on them. I believe it was/is an ignition module of some sort. They were a problem when they got about 60000 miles on them. I remember this from 2 brothers having mid 70’s Chryslers. Good Luck
