For the all Ford portion of the show is this going to be open to all Ford owned brands. A friend of mine had his 5.0 powered Volvo on display at the Ford 100th anniversary celebration and would like to attend the show. His position on this is Ford now owns Volvo, Ford claims all total Volvo production in their total numbers now, plus the car has a Mustang engine and transmission Here's a pic of his car

Hey Amber
We could get some of the folks from HPT as judges maybe?? You want me to talk to GMracin (Tony)?

tnturbo
08-12-2003, 11:07 PM
Several of the guys on HPT that aren't real regular posters are active in the Lakeway Mustang club and could probably help get some more turnout.

Hey TNturbo get them fired up! We need this to be a big event for Knoxville.

I wonder how we could get some air time on the local radio stations?

bitn03
08-13-2003, 09:23 AM
Rick--for the airtime...the dealership is suppose to do that..but if you hear of anything free...let me know....any free local papers down your way? I will have the flyer & reg form to everyone by Tuesday. Let me know about the judges. I need to get in contact with them if we can get a group! Thanks you guys! You're the best!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :D

Also 411 dragway in Knoxville is open for test and tune on Saturday and Sunday. People coming from the Carolinas could always do a preliminary run of the Dragon and come into Knoxville via 129.

cobrabitn
08-23-2003, 12:07 AM
Rick,

The rules are right on the front page of the website for anyone who attends our shows.

On a side note...... SVT will be supporting this event through raffle and goodie prizes. :) They always give us a lot of stuff.

I'm going to try and get some more stuff from a few other SCMC vendors.... ;)

Hazman
08-23-2003, 08:10 AM
It must be old age. I spent 20 minutes looking at the main page of the website before I found that big link on the right side called Show Rules. DUH!!

I just called the Microtel to reserve a room for Friday night (10/3) and was told there is a 2-night minimum stay. :mad: What else is close to the Ford dealer?

cobrabitn
09-26-2003, 08:33 PM
I have reserved for one day Rich. I'll double check with them before you make reservaions elsewhere...

Let me see what the deal is because if they have a two day minimum then I'll be staying somewhere else too.

Tony

09-28-2003, 11:42 PM
Sounds like a plan! BTW, I guess the person I talked to on my first call to the hotel was misinformed...got my room for Friday.:D Thanks for checking on it Tony.

cobrabitn
09-28-2003, 11:44 PM
Rich,

We need to hook up on Friday so we can run together unless you have to work and will be getting off late? I want to leave by around 2 or 3:00 pm.

Keep me posted on your travel plans. I have the day off and might head up a litlle earlier than that.

no avail meaning she can never get in contact with him or is not available to come to the phone.

Thanks,

IF my plane lands on time on Saturday morning I will be at the dealership a little before noon. I should have at least one in not two or three white cobra's besides mine with me. Here's hoping the weather and the airline co-operate! :D :thumbsup:

cobrabitn
09-29-2003, 02:02 PM
Greg,

Do your guys over in Asheville know how to get to Ted Russell Ford? Um, they do know how to go somewhere on their own, don't they? :rolleyes:

We expect to see a lot of Asheville members there. The dealership is going to be raffling off some really cool prizes and we have tons of stuff to raffle off too. Everything is a "go", all we need is some nice cool weather! :thumbsup:

Need for Speed will be doing some gift certificates too. As they are in the mail today.

Rich, I'm all for leaving earlier!

Here's a pretty critical issue that I am not 100% on. Is the show at the Walker Springs or the Parkside Drive location. I had thought it was Parkside, but it is starting to sound like Walker Springs :confused:

cobrabitn
09-29-2003, 06:22 PM
Jeff,

It's the Parkside Dr location for the show like it says on the registration from I believe???:doubt:

tnturbo
09-29-2003, 06:54 PM
That's what I had thought, but it seemed like some of the places being mentioned were more convenient to Walker Springs. Thanks for confirming that for me.

bitn03
09-29-2003, 07:07 PM
It is the parkside drive location, take the Cedar Bluff exit (I think)

Everyone that is going down Friday night plan on meeting at the hotel about 7

See you guys there!:bounce:

Ted Russell had a quarter-page ad for the event in Section A of the Knoxville Sentinel this morning (second to last page of the Section). I was surprised to see it. It was a good looking ad.

What time are most folks getting there? Anyone going for the 8:00am opening?

The Parkside Drive location has a lot of space, so there should be plenty of room.


EDIT: It is less than a quarter-page ad, but it still catches your eye!

cobrabitn
10-02-2003, 12:20 PM
Coil99,

We will be there early to set up. Glad they advertised it for us!:bounce: Are you showing the Mach1 or the Cobra?

We are alsoo going out to eat Friday night if you want to join us. Just be at the Microtel at 7:00 pm tomorrow night.

Later,

Ted Russell ran the same ad again in today's paper on page A6. It stands out! I'm going to try and scan it for people to see.

Coil99,

Was that you that came by today? I saw someone with a white 95 Cobra and handed them an application. We had a really good turnout for a first showing. 50 cars entered! :bounce:

We also gained at least 5 new members! :thumbsup:

I was there, but not in the Cobra. I brought the Mach 1, which I parked a few rows over at the end - way out of the way.

My wife and I were there for a good while, but didn't know anyone from this board...wish we had!

I thought it was a great turn-out! A lot of people and cars to see. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Hey everyone.

I was the Blue/white striped soft top AC Cobra. Nxt to the Daytona one.

Thanks for the great time. Your club did a great job in putting on the show. Ted Russell is a great place to have one, as he helps out in the community.

Met alot of great people that hopefully liked me aswell.

Got my first trophy ever. Heck yeah!

Signed, poorest Cobra owner alive :)

TnCobra,

Glad you enjoyed the show. All of those AC Cobras looked great. I have to agree with you about Ted Russell. He stayed out there all day chatting with everyone. I thought that was cool... :thumbsup:

Coil99,

All you had to do was come up to the tent and that was all of us. Just introduce yourself so we know who you are! :thumbsup:

Glad you liked it...

Tony
