Impressions from the Grand Resort Show in Pigeon Forge

Just got back from Pigeon Forge via Huntsville to pick up the Dodge. A little advice for people wanting to attend the Grand Resort show next year. Don't go unless you can get a room staying right on the strip. If you are north of town, like we were, itís too far to walk. They have a trolley to run you down there but the traffic is horrendous and you get nowhere fast. Spent 4 hours on the trolley Saturday just to go 2 miles back to our hotel. Traffic was bumper to bumper stop and go constantly. About an hour from one side of town to the other. Pain in the *****.

On the other hand, LOTS of great muscle cars! Probably saw more '69 Camaros there then Chevy ever built. Same thing with Chevelles. About 65% of all the cars there were Chevys with about 15% Fords and 10% Mopar and the rest mixed. Lots of trucks too. Almost everything was for sale. Saw an original Yenko Super Nova for $125K and a '65 Hemi Belvedere with a price tag of $75K. Most everything else was pretty reasonable. Even a smattering of project cars for sale.

One final comment. Whoever said Pro-Street is dead, was dead wrong. About 20% of everything there was pro-street. Everything from S-10s to Camaros to Broncos.

It was a good show but like I said, stay on the strip to have a good time.
