But, my interest in full-size cars always takes a front seat to other hobbies, and during our drive, I kept an eye out for interesting cars hiding in backyards, along the side of the road and anywhere else old tin lurks. And I was disappointed.
The area we traveled to was near Bristol, Tenn., and I hoped the spotting would be good. Alas, I spotted a “Bullet Bird” beneath a tarp and a primered ’80s Monte Carlo Aerocoupe on blocks in a backyard. But not one other car.
So, where is all the good metal in Tennessee? I’m hoping to go back there to cover the Forge muscle car show later this year and am looking for any good leads. I suspect there are lots of good Fords and MoPars in the area to check out, so I’m relying on you to tell me where the hunting is good!
