Not sure I agree with not what it used to be. Have you seen the pictures of the cars there since the move to the La Conte center

In before the move to regional.

I plan to go, haven't been in a few years. Love seeing all the Corvettes as well as other sweet looking rides.

Have been going for yrs and always enjoy. It is much better at the new center than at previous location in Severville. Last yr old Danielle from American Pickers was there and lines both days for photos, LOL. They had two speakers giving talks about GM and corvettes and it was great. I thought it was one of the best I had attended in several yrs. I will prob. go but not in the vette, only 2.5 hrs for me.

The new location has improved the show lot.
Free parking, a lot more venders.
I believe they're sharing it with Chevelles this year.
They will again do a
Friday night 'cruise' through a recently opened section of the foothills parkway then on to the dragon.

I no longer plan or lead the Friday cruise, for health reasons. I'll be driving it though, we usually have several hundred cars for this cruise.

If they don't have it, you don't need it.

I'll be in the black and red Vette with a rear spoiler the size of the Empire State Building, black rims with red stripes and plate PD4242. Give a wave.

I hope to be there Saturday even though the weather looks to be pretty cool. Not sure if I will have the Vette or the Toyota Sequoia.

Anyone coming in thru Knoxville on I-40 pay attention to the road. The heavy rain a few weeks did a number on the highway and left large potholes. They have been filling them but don't know if they got them all yet. Saw numerous cars on the side of the interstate with flat tires last time I went thru in east Knoxville.
