Love older, maybe slightly weirder cars? The Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, is proud to announce its newest exhibit, Les Autos Françaises: 60 Years of French Automotive History.

Though they don’t have the largest impact in the industry today, France was the leading manufacturer of cars back in the infancy of the automobile. The new exhibit will display over 100 French cars manufactured during the years 1924-1985, considered the heyday of French auto manufacturing.

The exhibit will open on May 21. And it costs just $9 per head to get in.
