    Here's a link to she show: http://www.shadesofthepast.com/

    Don't let the Rod Run name fool you.. the actual show cutoff is nothing newer than 1972, but here's the thing. The twelve mile stretch from Sevierville through Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg will be packed with cars, parts, swapmeets, wall to wall, all weekend. Every parking lot in every hotel, restaurant, shop or store will be lined with hot rods, parts, projects of every size shape, condition and age. The 6 lane road through there will be a 24/7 parade of stuff all day and night. People line the parkway with lawn chairs and just sit and watch. It's really just overwhelming the amount of stuff there is to see. We go, but have never even made it to the actual show itself! There's no need, just tons of stuff everywhere you look. Last year we saw tons of 1st gen cars, SS's, RS's and Z/28's all weekend- and all for sale. The show link only tells about the proper show, but just being in the area is good enough- there's just no way to see it all anyways. Be a great place to sell one, or unload your extra parts, or find that new winter project. Kelly and I are going up for the weekend Thursday night -anybody coming send a PM if you like- love to meet up with any other Nasty Z/28 members.

    Isn't the Rod Run the week after Shades of the Past? I went a few years in a row, but haven't been the last couple years.

    I tried to get to that the first year. My wife was 3 weeks in, of 6 weeks bed rest, after a hysterectomy...but she wanted to go. We missed everything except the autoX, and we were late to that...

    At least she got out of the house for the weekend.
