It’s no secret that Pigeon Forge, Tennessee has long been a haven for tourist attractions. Take for example; WonderWorks, Dollywood, and most recently, the Titanic Museum. But Pigeon Forge is not only known for some zany tourist attractions, it’s also home to many yearly automotive gatherings including the Grand Run, Shades of the Past, and on May 17-19, the 34th Annual F-100 Supernationals and All Ford Show.
Despite being having the Goodguys Nashville show the same weekend, the All Ford show still had quite the turnout. LMC Truck, the title sponsor, Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts, Dan Carpenter’s Specialties, ET Motorgear, Barillaro Speed Emporium, Mustang Performance were among some of the great companies on hand.
Fat Cat Rods, A&A Mustang Parts, BeBop’s Glass Works, Kirk’s Kustom Upholstery, Smokey Road Rod Shop, Vision Rod & Customs, Danny’s Rod Shop, Stainless Specialties, JJ’s Classic Mustang Parts and Pope’s Hot Rods also shared displays and their latest creations at the event.
One of the really cool things about this particular event (especially if you’re a Ford fan) is all of the different genres of cars on display. You see everything from old restored Econolines to custom roadsters all the way to rare classic Torinos.
It is such a cool mix of fine automobiles with seemingly no end in sight. Someone with an eclectic taste in such cars can certainly get lost wandering up and down the rows of eye candy for hours on end. Admiring and reading or talking to the owners about all of the great history in each and every rare model certainly becomes the icing on the cake. The number of high quality cars and trucks on display throughout the grounds made it very clear that the Blue Oval contingent supported this event in masses.
If you missed this year’s F-100 Supernats, have no fear, Autoshows Motorsports Events has already announced next year’s event. Mark your calendars for May 16-18, 2013, and we’ll see you in Pigeon Forge for the action! With the support of LMC Truck, there will no doubt be even more super Fords gathering at the gateway to the Smokies.
