Greetings from the hills of East Tennessee!

Thought i'd take a moment and introduce myself this morning. Am a relatively new Camaro Convertible owner from Kingsport, TN. Thought we'd wait til the best time of the year to buy one, but the worst time to drive it - December, to save a few thousand $$. It worked! Searched a radius of 300 miles, and found her at a dealership in South Charleston, WV, 225 miles from here.

As bought, ours is an '11 Victory Red 2SS/RS, automatic, with 6500 miles, and stock with the exception of Flowmaster exhaust, and tinted glass done by the original owner. So, far, we've driven her just over 1000 miles.

Since getting her, I find that I look for an excuse to go somewhere, anywhere, and take the long way both ways. And, although it's winter, the weather has cooperated a few times, so we have experienced driving with the top down 4 or 5 days so far.

As sitting at the dealership, while we signed our life away... (Salesman parked in a handicap spot, but this is the only pic I have right now)


Am looking forward to warmer weather to take advantage of the numerous touring roads close by to see what she'll do.
- Tail of the Dragon (U.S. 129 in the Smokies)
- The Snake (U.S. 421 between Bristol & Mountain City, TN),
- Devil's Triangle (north of Oak Ridge, TN)

Maybe we'll see some of you there!

Welcome to Camaro5 as well!
You will have a great time on the roads in East TN and West NC.
Tail of the Dragon was good, but I like Moonshiner highway better!

How long have you been there?
I was there for 32 years and was retired in the layoffs of 2009.

Just hit 20 years. Saw you were retired, hate to hear it was due to layoff. What're you into now, other than riding around with the top down?

I tried for two years to find work similar to what I was doing but nobody wants to hire someone with experience any more, they want someone they can get right out of school they can pay peanuts to. Also during that time I was diagnosed with cancer and went through almost a year of treatments and recovery. Since then I have even tried to get a job at auto parts places and radio shack but no luck there either.
So now I just do things around the house and play with the Camaro.

Sounds like a tough couple years. Glad to hear you're on the mend. Good luck to you. If you make a run thru Kingsport, give me a yell, and I'll do the same.

Do you hit any of the local cruises and car shows during the year?

TopL3ssSS, CONGRATS on the new ride, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wive's, husbands, girlfirends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

I try to get to the wilderness run cruise in on Friday and the car show on Saturday before Memorial Day in Kingsport. And then the Fun Fest car show too.
I try to get up to the Dragon a couple times a year and also whenever I get a chance I like to drive the Snake.
