The May Meeting of FTRG began at Exit 7 Bristol, where the club met to begin the “BRISTOL AUTO COLLECTION TOUR”.
We began by touring the Helms Auto Collection. Special thanks to the Helms Family for allowing our club to view this classic collection of automobiles, ranging from Packard to Pierce Arrow, to Lincoln to Cadillac. Where else could you see the “Munsters” Coffin Dragster and an Elvis Presley Cadillac!
We then traveled to Ride Revolutions in Bristol where we got to see the vehicle from the movie ” Fast & Furious” . Special thanks for Ride Revolutions hospitality. By the way, they have one of only a handful of all wheel drive dyno’s on the East Coast. Check them out if you need something to trick out your car.
Then, the club headed west on the Volunteer parkway to Bob McNabb’s car collection in Piney Flats. Bob has a number of really terrific cars, Ferrari, Ford, Dodge, Plymouth, Chrysler, Austin and numerous Nascar Race Cars from Rusty Wallace, Bill Elliot, Bobby Allison and Randy LeJoie. Thanks to Bob for allowing us to drool over his great cars. We will all be looking for one of those cars to sell at Barrett Jackson next January!
