I'm making my hotel etc reservations now, planning to stay in Pigeon Forge (cuz I've only passed thru, and never had time to really check that place out) and drive over to Rogersville (an hour and a half, yes?) to spend all day at the Memory Lane show. The next day, we're going to Dollywood. LOL. I love kitsch; what can I say?

If anyone from the board wants to meet up and say hello, feel free to gimme a shout here, or in a pm.

Still trying to decide whether to do Memory Lane or the Chattanooga Chrysler/Imperial/Packard Meet.
I've been to Memory Lane on many occasions - and it's awesome. But Mike McKenna says the Chattanooga show is a blast, too.

With both happening the same weekend, I may head down to the Home O' The MoonPie this year. Been a while since I've been down around Chattanooga, anyhow.

Meanwhile, Check your PM's RockBoy.

The Chattanooga show looks like fun! Nice website too. I liked this little blurb from the website: "These meets are NOT "judged shows" and derogatory comments about attendees' cars is prohibited. Some, if not many, of the Meet participants have driven cars that are either unrestored original cars, cars in the process of being restored, or daily drivers. Derogatory comments can discourage current, as well as potential participants. We do not want to discourage anyone from attending these Meets! If you can't say something nice, just be quiet!"

LOL. My kinda show---- same reason I like the rat rod shows.

I think we are pretty much locked into the Memory Lane plan at this point, and I'm dying to see the moved/reassembled period-buildings on the Eldridge property.

Yes Chattanooga is a VERY NICE get together...since it is held at the host's home, it's very low key and enjoyable....

Hey, Tim!

That's ME standing between the '57 Chevrolet and the '56 Dodge.
Those are both my cars.

Wish I had known yet ANOTHER ForwardLooker was in attendance!
I would've loved to have met you in person, too.

Mike McKenna (My57Saratoga) and Sam Allen (57PlymouthNC) were there as well.
Chances are, you may have seen all of us lounging around behind that black Chev.

I've attached another photo of the three of us alongside that '57 Chrysler parts car.
Maybe you saw us at some point throughout the day. The crowd was huge.

Very Cool Cars Man!

I really liked all the Mopars at the show! I was pleasantly impressed!!! I was there in the morning and left around noon. On my way out I stopped at the HEMI garage on top of the hill! Nearly everything in that garage had a 426 Hemi!!! Amazing! My dad and brother were there in the '34 Ford and the '48 Chevrolet below. Heck man, even I saw one of my old cars in the junk pile! 1964 Lincoln convertible. I sold it a few years ago...not sure how Otis wound up with it! LOL!

Memory Lane was a great show!! I highly recommend it!
I was there in the morning, stayed all day, then went to the cruise-in about half an hour away, with Nathan & Jessica, Mike, and two more of Nathan's friends. The Memory Lane property is awesome---- if you're into retro furnishings & artifacts (from the Sears "kit house" to 50's mobile homes to lamps & boomerang coffee tables), not to mention Otis' amazing collection of vintage cars, you really HAVE to check out this event. One of the things I really liked about the show is that it was so NOT about "trailer queens"---- there were beautifully restored cars, well-preserved originals, rat rods...and some rust buckets that people had hauled in to round things out. It seemed like it all "belonged" there, and that helped to make the event unique. It was great to meet fellow FowardLookers, and I gotta tell ya, I loved looking in the rearview mirror on the way to the cruise-in, & seeing Nathan's mint green & black '56 Dodge tooling along at 60mph. One of the nicest looking cars at the show, for sure!
