« on: January 17, 2014, 02:57:55 PM »
Looking for some help from the Nashville area guys to tell us which of the following shows is the best one to attend for those of us outside of Nashville?

JAN 18-19 Nashville, TN Nashville Auto Fest    (this weekend - what day is best?  is there a swap meet?)

FEB 2nd Nashville, TN Stone’s River Region     (Is this one more swap meet or car show or ??)

The one this weekend is pretty good it is a car show and swap meet.  Saturday is usually the best day to find parts although Sunday you probably could pick up the things that didnt sell cheaper.  If I was going it would be there Saturday early to find the best deals.  Im bowing out of this one to work on my own ride.  Stones River is the better of the two.  It is just a swap meet.  I will be set up at this one.  If you decide to go to this one feel free to stop by and look or buy some of my junk; and that goes for everyone.  Ill be at the corner were the large canvas tunnel is located.  See map.  There will be a couple others at this one as well.  Last year was a little weaker than ones in the past but all 4 buildings will have parts and then there will be outside spots as well.  This is a one day only.  Sunday.

Best get on your horse early, Gary - gates open at 6:30 Sunday the 2nd., ends at 3:00 (everybody scrams to watch the SB).

No truth to an entry surcharge for attendees from south of the state line -

Regards (see you there),

I was there today, left home at 8 but since my wife, and daughter and grandson went, (dropped the women at CoolSprings Mall), it was almost 10 by the time my grandson and I made it to the Fairgrounds.  Lots of people there..  paying their $12/head (which seems way too much to get in for an opportunity to spend MORE money ..  :)     I wasted a few bucks, but not really anything I couldn't have lived without.    I *might* be back in 2 weeks..  if so, I'll be looking for Steve and Darrel.. :)

Darrell,

I'm going to TRY to come up again, and be there as early as possible (but not 6:30), since I have a 2 hr drive.. :)
(The weather isn't looking so great right now... but how many other locales could even be discussing an outdoor swap meet this time of year?) *G*

Are there any other 'Nashville area' or southeastern CRG guys that plan to come to this meet??   I know Steve is from the Nashville area..   ?   Maybe we could plan a mid morning time like 10 AM or 10:30 AM to meet at Darrell's swap space so we can put faces to some of the names we communicate with ??  :)

Whelp a little change up after the phone call I just got from the swap meet people.  Come to find out they are opening the "cafe" for the meet and my spot was where the door was/is.  So I will be moving to the center aisle in the same building.  Not sure exactly where until I get there tomorrow for setup.  I will post up once I know exactly.    :(

Ok my new spot is on the corner of the center aisle of the same building.  Just a few feet from my old spot.  See everyone there tomorrow!
