It's still early and I haven't gotten all the things planned out yet but it will happen and in the coming months. I put on a small show last year for a fund raiser. It went okay but I want to do better this year so we will be having this one up in the mountains on our place.
Wanna camp? Bring your stuff. Do it on our place or do it at the local state park which is one of the most visited parks in TN.
Want cool mountain roads? Plenty of them around and I hope to have a whole line of Nostalgic cars on one of them.
Got the local fire dept coming up to cook a big ole HOG on the fire! They do this several times per year for a fundraiser and will do it at our place for this show to help make money.
Gonna rent a stage from the local town for music. What kind? Not sure yet but tunes of some kind. Possibly bluegrass since this territory is where it all began for the country music singers way back in the old days.
Dry county so BYOB just don't get out of hand since there will be children there too.
If you need to do some work on the car while it's there I have a full service shop with a lift. A certified mechanic which is a friend of mine will probably come that day to help out if anyone needs him.
Wanna run a 1/4 mile? I will have this on one of the days clost to when Bristol is having their street fights so several of us can go down and watch or run. Might even have cone races in the parking lot if we are lucky.
Been in contact with a mobile dyno and depending on how much money they want I hope to have them there for a full day of dyno action.
Right now it looks like late May. As things shape up I will update. A local car club throws one of these mountain shows each year and gets over 500 vehicles. I don't expect anything like that since it's the first year but with much help I hope to get many people.
Here's a few websites:
This is our farm website. Actual address of the shop is 1030 Green Creek road in Bakersville, NC 28705. Only 6 miles from the TN line.
Our property joins this mountain. Beautiful views and if I do this in June rhododendron may be in full bloom. That's when we get our visitors up there. The TN/NC state line is on top of the Roan.
Here's a link to the drag's schedule. Very fun event and hundreds of cars running. Times are from 19-10 secs and cars of all sorts.
Here's the local state park. It's just a jump over the mountain on the TN side. Beautiful place.
Here's a listing for motels in the city I live in here in TN. Plan on meeting early and driving a convoy over the hills and through the woods to the farm. Did I say we need Supras?
Here's a couple shots from where we will have the car show. Right next to 3 large fish ponds. It will not be this cold when we have the show I promise.
Posted here because I love old foreign cars! This site is growing at an amazing rate and I know there are some members close to me too. I learned how hard it is to get a show off and running last year so this time I am asking for help from members of some of the forums I belong to. If I get one from here it is better than none. So, think about it. It will be fun.
