Nashville Auto Fest 2018

These two winged Mopar Aero Cars headed up the collection of Music City Mopar Club cars at the 2018 Nashville Auto Fest car show.


For the 27th year the Nashville Auto Fest was held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. This indoor show is much like an ISCA (International Show Car Association) show but is an independent show of extremely high quality. It was a very difficult year in 2018 since the load in day was part of a traffic snarling snow storm and the days of the show turned into an early spring. The area had been in a deep freeze for weeks and the snow brought schools to a close for a solid week. Once the weather broke everyone with “cabin fever” headed outdoors.

Despite this, the 2018 Nashville Auto Fest was a great show. The quality of the entrants was very high with some very high end customs were present as well as some rare and expensive restorations.

There were also a large number of vendors and swap meet style booths to keep attendees busy emptying their wallets.

We have included just a few of our favorite cars from the show. We were also extremely honored and thrilled that our very own 1969 Nuremberg Dodge Daytona was selected as Best In Show! Most shows of this type usually select an exotic custom or wild hot rod as their choice for such an honor. We were very humbled to have our restored original Daytona take home the honor.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
