    Southeast Gasser Races, real 1967 period correct gassers. Many of them are stick shift and pull the wheels and get squirrely. If you go once you will go again, its worth the drive. They usually have races in Nc, Sc and sometimes in Ga and Tennessee.
     
  6. There's only two roadrace-only tracks...Virginia International Raceway (VIR) near Danville, VA and a track in/near Kershaw, SC (not sure of the name).

    Spring and Fall AutoFairs, Charlotte GoodGuys in October, (new) Raleigh GoodGuys (August?), Steel in Motion in Union, SC in May, Heavy Rebel Weekender in Winston in July, Myrtle Beach later this month... Pretty active area, and it seems to be growing. Once you get here, ask around! There's tons of third-Saturday and second-Tuesday type cruise-ins all over the Piedmont!

    Where specifically are you moving to...at least nearest city...
     
  7. Oh...and welcome from Greenville, NC...east of Raleigh!
     
  8. Several things to do up this way in East TN. and West NC
    Shades Run, Grand Run and several others in Pigeon Forge. Hornets Nest AACA swap meet outside of Asheville. Super Chevy and NHRA at Bristol Dragway. Maggie Valley swap meet. Already mentioned, Charlotte Autofair twice a year, plus Myrtle Beach. Honest Charley/Coker open house in Chattanooga. All Deuce run on the BRParkway.
    Plus smaller things going on nearly EVERY weekend in the summer. Welcome!
     
  9. Come on Tim,we ain't that bad! :cool: HRP
     
  10. Definitely check out Steel In Motion and some of the Southeast Gassers races. They are the best thing going in my opinion.
     
  11. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^:p

    Be sure to bring your show tires and chains for ice driving climate change seems to be real.
