Part of the fun and mystique of owning collector cars whether they are muscle cars, sports cars, hot rods or rat rods are the stories behind them. The stories about how they were acquired, about the breakdowns, about the special trips and especially about the people encountered along the way. The Mission of our site is about helping you make your car a Legend.

Alan Jackson Car Collection

front-of-houseKatrina and I recently had a once in a lifetime opportunity to tour the garage and car collection of one of our favorite recoding artists, Alan Jackson. We have been to his concerts and own many of his CDs but never have we been more excited than to visit his family’s gorgeous property and his terrific car collection.

In addition to the photos below make sure you listen to the audios of some of the cars’ engines.

We want to thank the Alan Jackson family for letting us infringe on their personal space and also want to give a big thank you to Gary Haneberg and the entire Battlefield Antique Auto Club Association (AACA) of Franklin, TN who made this wonderful event possible.

We all gathered for an impromptu car show in a school parking lot so we could caravan to the Alan Jackson estate. Here Katrina looks over a 1962 Corvette which greatly resembles my first Corvette ever.

We drove our ZO6 to the event, one of the few times it gets to go out these days.

The approach to the Alan Jackson estate is an event in its self.

Just behind the home is a complex of buildings which includes the garage for Alan’s cars.

We parked near the Jackson lake and walked up the hill to the garage.

I have seen few homes that rival parks for there space and beauty but the Alan Jackson estate certainly does.

The first thing you see when you enter the garage is Alan’s personal desk and work area when he is home.

Katrina meets Alan Jackson! Well, almost. Alan is actually a cardboard cutout sitting on the real Alan’s Harley.

By the way, Katrina is also real.

Alan must be a fan of Mayberry. He has a Mayberry High School letterman’s jacket and many autographed photos from the stars.

Now for some cars.

The collection is not large but is high in quality. This is a 44o RT Challenger Convertible.

The collection is eclectic and has much more than just cars. I think Alan likes to fish.

Stutz. This car finished 1st or 2nd at the 1928 24 of LeMans but is not Alan’s car. It belongs to a friend.

Listen to the audio below very carefully and you can hear when the lever is pulled to open and close the exhaust cutout, it gets much louder.

For those of us on the outside looking in it is a great reminder that no matter how much you have there is always some one with more. It should also remind us to be thankful for what we have because there are many not so well blessed.

  5. Patrick S. Love says:

    Thanks Alan, for sharing your cars with us – love them and your music.
    I hope you have time to enjoy your cars as much as I can enjoy your music.

  6. Jack Collier says:

    We lived in Georgia when Alan came on the scene. We are true fans of Alan, county music, and car people as well. We are strong believers of faith and family values like those Alan was raised with.

    Saw the A & E interview yesterday and when the song of “God Bless the Working Man” was performed, my first thought was of the miners and families of West Virginia who were lost and lost loved ones. And I thought, would’nt it be great if someone in country music would put on a concert to raise money for those families.

    Faith, Hope and The Greatest is Love.

  7. Sammy Gilbert says:

    Alan, where is the 49 Mercury?

  8. Don Kent says:

    Thank you so much. I might not ever have seen Alan’s place if not for you. That was very cool. Thanks again for sharing your experience.

I love my boys but my husband went to central america every mounth for 10 to 12 days i spent my time trying to keep my boys from getting in trouble and be there for them alot of time the needed their day. Alan do you know how i could sale this car to that wont try to take me on it because they think i don’t know about being crazy about a mercury i had a offer u would not believe what he offer i just want a fair price because u would just have to see it to believe it is in good condition does need a paint job.I know you like cars thought u might know someone who is looking for a 1949 Mercury.
