On the Road

Street Rodder - - Contents -

The Shades of the Past Road Tour has be­come one of our most pop­u­lar tours each sum­mer. Over the past years we have started in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions and trav­eled to Pigeon Forge, Ten­nessee, for the Fri­day and Satur­day event known as the Hot Rod Roundup, pre­sented by the Shades of the Past Car Club.

A few years ago we be­gan our week in Nashville, aka Mu­sic City. Nashville is the fastest grow­ing city in the United States and there are plenty of things to see and do. Our week will be­gin on Satur­day, Septem­ber 1. We will spend Satur­day, Sun­day, and Mon­day of La­bor Day week­end in Nashville. We will be vis­it­ing lo­cal at­trac­tions, such as the Lane Mo­tor Mu­seum, the Coun­try Mu­sic Hall of Fame and Mu­seum, the restau­rants and honky- tonks on Broad­way, and maybe a show at the Grand Ole Opry. We will stop and visit the Amer­i­can Pick­ers store over the week­end. One of the days we will take a daytrip north to the Corvette Mu­seum in Bowl­ing Green, Ken­tucky.

Tues­day, Septem­ber 4, we will head south­east and visit Corky Coker and the good folks at Coker Tire in Chat­tanooga, Ten­nessee. The mu­seum at Coker Tire in­cludes an amaz­ing col­lec­tion of cars, mo­tor­cy­cles, and au­to­mo­bilia. We will ar­rive in Pigeon Forge on Tues­day evening. It is go­ing to be a fun week as we travel from Nashville to Pigeon Forge and the Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup. Some of our stops in Nashville will in­clude the Corvette Mu­seum, the Coun­try Mu­sic Hall of Fame, and Lane Mo­tor Mu­seum. We will stop at Coker Tire on our way to Pigeon Forge where we will visit Lokar in Knoxville and have spe­cial park­ing at Dol­ly­wood Splash Coun­try for the event.

On Wed­nes­day we will be tak­ing a daytrip north to visit Lokar’s new fa­cil­ity in Knoxville and stop by a few of the rod shops in the area. Thurs­day we will take a beau­ti­ful drive south through the Smoky Moun­tain Na­tional Park stop­ping in Gatlin­burg and trav­el­ing on to visit the Wheels Through

Time mo­tor­cy­cle mu­seum in Mag­gie Val­ley, North Carolina.

Fri­day, Septem­ber 7, the fun be­gins at Dol­ly­wood Splash Coun­try with the Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup. This show has be­come one of the most pop­u­lar street rod events in the na­tion. The ad­di­tion of the STREETRODDER Triple Crown of Rod­ding pre­sented by Pain­less Per­for­mance Prod­ucts has helped the event grow even larger over the past few years. The ex­cite­ment con­tin­ues on Satur­day at Splash Coun­try and cul­mi­nates with the awards pre­sen­ta­tion in the af­ter­noon. As al­ways, the Shades of the Past Road Tour par­tic­i­pants will have spe­cial park­ing and a hos­pi­tal­ity tent on Fri­day and Satur­day.

It is go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic week on the Shades of the Past Road Tour from Nashville to Pigeon Forge and the 36th an­nual Hot Rod Roundup. Check out our en­tire
