This is always an awesome event. Although my car is down right now and I can't bring it, I will be there spectating. May even hit one of the guys up for a ride at the autocross lol maybe next year I will have mine there.

I'm about 3 weeks short of having my car done. I was really hoping to bring it out to run. Alas, I ended up tearing my car down far more than i thought, to do all of those things that are a real pain after it is together.

I'll be there spectating, scouring the swap meet and relaxing. I hope to finally meet some of you guys.

Tina and I are flying in for this one, to spend some time with friends. Most of the time we will somewhere between the autocross, and the beer stand. - hey it's a vacation. Say hi if you see us, and have a great time at the show. - I'm excited to see the Summers and Sons "Saturday Night Special" C-10 out there, running against Kevin Bapst, Mark Turner, Greg Schnieder, and the other fast trucks.

I will be there spectating probably Saturday and Sunday... and will probably drive the Camaro to the event. I actually found my Camaro there last year (guy from TX drove up and had it in the car show - flew down and purchased it a couple weeks later). Cant wait!

It's still questionable if I'll be there or not. It doesn't look like the truck will be ready either way, though.

what color and make?

Light blue or light green chevy or gmc, 67-72ish. Was a nice looking truck. Had a ridetech logo on it.

Looked like it went off course and hit the curb pretty hard. Couldn't tell what exactly was wrong, but the front fenders were bent, and the whole thing looked kind of banana shaped from the side. Maybe it caught the frame crossmember on the curb. If thats what happened, it could have easily bent the frame.

It sucks to have a car damaged that bad, but I have always doubted the safety of that autocross course. Not enough runoff room, and too many hard objects to hit, and spectators too close to the fence. A mishap on a side of the course with spectators could have been much worse. The finish line right next to the light pole isn't the best idea either.

A buddy sent me these pics of it, I only saw it from the other side of the track. Looks like it took quite a lick. Thats a pretty damn big curb to be so close to the course. Sucks to see that much damage, but at least the driver and passenger hopped out and looked ok.

Thats sucks cause he just put a new motor and tranny in the truck.

My hats off to the guys and gals that take on the Nashville autocross each year. As mentioned, there is that curbing, a dip in the road, the concrete barricades, and that light pole at the end of the course. Hate to see that happen to anyone out there. That is truly living the motto...driving fast and taking chances! I am sure the AirRide/Ridetech group of guys will have that truck up and running in no time. Glad that no one was hurt.

I went on friday. i got to have a nice convo with Finch ( Brian if you are reading this, I got wrapped up working on my car on saturday. I was bummed when I looked up at the clock and saw it reading 4pm. i wanted that trip around the course.)

I also am in love with the riddler winning t-bird.

i finally got to talk to a wheel company about what I was looing for. Looks like I'll be ordering some aluminum wheels from wheelsmith for my galaxie.

This years builders choice area was even more crowded with great cars than last year. It is amazing how all of these shops keep raising the bar higher in all categories. Engine bays, body work, metal work, interior, everything. And congrats to the Greenings on this years Ridler Award.

Greg from Ridetech.........so unfortunate. It was a beautiful truck, and it he's such an awesome guy. I was so bummed when i heard this. I haven't seen the carnage yet, but i'm not looking forward to it.

So glad I skipped it this year (was working on my own car). Seeing all these awesome cars just makes me realize how modest my own build is. The interior of the topless red whatever-it-is above is just sick. Can't wait until I have a real job and some money.

Huge car show in your backyard and you are glad you skipped it? I don't get it.
