The Tennessee State Fair grounds are kind of embarrassing. The fault of years of mismanagement. It is hardly fit to hold a fair to show off the best of the great State of Tennessee. I wouldn’t think a great car show would be worth seeing here either. This weekend I was pleasantly surprised by the Hunters Auto Expo. Hunters is a Nashville based custom auto shop. Want to make your ride unique? Want to know what is out there for your car? It doesn’t matter what you drive chances are Hunters has it. The Auto Expo they sponsor is a great example of their diverse clientele. It doesn’t matter what your definition of cool is, the expo has it. Custom trucks, muscle cars, modern classics, and even some oddities are all parked next to each other in an indoor atmosphere. It’s a state fair for car guys. This blog I am going to keep short and fill it in with images from this year’s expo and I will be doing later blogs to go more in depth with some of my favorite cars and stories from the show. As the summer approaches I also promise to take you along for some of the trips I take this year. Please forgive the pictures, I am no professional.
