Thursday night till Sunday afternoon. My mind is still back there, so much fun. Did the Dragon 4 times total (twice with the group, twice on Saturday) and only once got stuck in traffic for more than a minute...and that was because of a semi! We also did the Cherohola Skyway, part of Moonshiner run (28 or 88 I forget now), and Devil's Triangle. Parts of the Triangle are brutal, those switchbacks......

Topped it off Sunday morning with TN Cars and Coffee, about 3000 cars! And not just Honda beaters, plenty of Maserati's, Lambo's, Tesla's, and plenty of classics. Plus about 50 of us (the running joke is all 107 left but only 50 Fiat's made it there.)

Dammit, I forgot the photo from the car dealership we passed. Classics, customs, all sorts of goodness. Got a photo of a classic Hemi Challenger and Pro Stock MGB next to each other.

Heh. When I showed that first picture of the semi that you posted a couple days ago to my mother-in-law's husband (drives hazmat tanks) he grunted and said "of course that's a JB Hunt driver".

Where did you guys wind up staying down there?

Is it the one in Maryville, TN? If so, that's Trader's Auto Sales. http://www.tradersautosales.com/

We've stopped in there a few times on the way into or out of the Gap. A nice dude runs it, and they keep an awesome array of cars.

Tally Ho Inn in Townsend TN. Home base for the event, made it about an hour in any direction to the Dragon, Triangle, Skyway, etc. And maybe 10 minutes from the entrance to the Smoky Mountains park, we took a Saturday drive through Cades Cove (she'd never been). Nice place, I'd stay again.

I don't think so, looks a little different from what I remember. Hard to say from the one image of the shop.

Dang, looks like fun. Unfortunately I can't make it to DGRR this year for various reasons (none the least of which the Mazda is scary on wet pavement)

What's the little red car?

Looks like an Abarth on crack. Definitely going there later this year in the e46! Can't wait.

The one I'm sitting in? That I didn't want to get out of? Someone brought their Alfa Romeo 4C to the Fiat event. Finally got a chance to sit in one at least, my dealer has one roped off and locked up.

Someone friended me on Facebook yesterday from the event. Turns out he was behind on the Devil's Triangle and caught a video clip of me 3-wheeling around a switchback! Weeeeeee.....
