15th-Annual Fall Redneck Rumble

When you schedule a car show on a day as nice as it was Saturday, you are going to have a huge turnout. That was the case over the weekend for the 15th-Annual Fall Redneck Rumble, which roared into the Wilson County Fairgrounds with the always-popular car show and swap meet. If you could survive not getting run down by an ATV or golf cart, which seem to multiply every time they have this event, you will enjoy one of the more unique automotive events in the Nashville area. I was there for quite a while and took a lot of pictures, so if you read all the way to the end you may check out the album.

You can't lose with the Hendersonville Cruise

It has been awhile since I did a story about the Hendersonville Cruise, but it is still one of the best around. Last Friday, a nice group of classics rolled into the Glenbrook shopping center as the sun set. Perfect weather, a live D.J., and free ice cream sandwiches probably didn’t hurt the large turnout. This is the best time of the year to go to these events. It is the rare point in the season where it isn’t too hot or cold. Many car show have been cancelled this year, so you probably aren’t burned out on these types of events yet. Plus, the season will end before you know it, so it’s a good idea to get out while you can.

Won't you take me to ... Watertown!

Watertown doesn’t seem like a big destination location, but we seem to end up there a bunch.  Whether it’s attending a basketball tournament at the high school, or shopping at the flea market, we often find ourselves headed in the direction of Watertown.   Last Saturday, the big draw was the Watertown Car Show.  Hosted by the Good Wheel Cruisers Car Club, this one attracted an impressive array of old cars to the grassy field behind the Watertown Volunteer Fire Department.   Many car shows have obviously been cancelled this year, so it was nice to be able to get outside on a nice day and see what has been hiding in everyone’s garages.
