Here is the latest alltac pics meet. Only one showed up other than mine and mine stay in the garage till it was over.

The mr2 meet was cut short cause one guy from atl broke down and they spent most of the day working on his car.


Here are a few pics. I will post the video later.

A sweet NSX up there.

They were supposed to close down the dragon that night and race these. They run 50 mph through it.

Thank you.

I tired juggling it this year, but it didn't work. I hated giving it up.

I will be there this spring.

The Tail of the Dragon, Dragon, Deals Gap, 318 curves in 11 miles... It is all TNHWY 129. I grew up on that road. When I grew up, you would ride across Robinsville Rd to NC then come back out The Dragon and ride 411 home. Robinsville Rd is now The Cherohala Skyway.

The Dragon and Cherohala Skyway combine a thousand curves and the best 4 hours or less (preferably less) of your life.

Motorcylcle and Car enthusiasts come from all over North America to visit. Plus Gatlinburg and Dollywood are there too.

Well if I can get your help, we will organize one for this spring.

I will get video together as soon as I figure out how to rip dvd to a workable movie format on my mac.

I think I found a software to do it, just have to wait till I get home.

Don't they close off this road sometimes so you can really rip on it? Or is that just a misconception that i had?

Anyone can come, the dragon is free to everyone but I am organizing the meet for toyota guys. If others show up, I doubt there would be any problem as we will see many other makes up there as you see in my pics.

Those are "unofficial" closings. After we left they were supposed to close the road for those mini bikes to race up and down. They claim they can hit 50 mph on the dragon.

I am going to map out some back roads and a a setup to the skyway. The skyway is another great road with less traffic than the dragon and better scenery.
If we do this run, saturday will be spent driving. But it will be a nice drive.

Keep in mind this road is very dangerous. We aw a few accidents while we were there and my friend totalled his car while we were there. If we stay within our limits we are fine.
