MARATHON MOTOR WORKS
I rode the Sporty down to the old Marathon Motor Works building in Nashville on Sunday. There was a cruise-in going on, plus I just wanted to see the building, so a buddy and I dodged the pop-up rain showers to check it out. What’s Marathon Motor Works you ask? Well… from 1907 to 1914 they produced the Marathon automobile, right here in Nashville. The building sat empty for many years, providing only a few country music video backdrops, but in the past few years it has been refurbished and is thriving with business. In fact, you know Mike Wolfe of American Pickers? His store is located here now. It’s called Antique Archaeology. The last two photos are from Mike’s store. Live music is a pretty cool touch and check out the old Cobra’s MC jacket for sale. You can read more about Marathon here.
