The Pigeon Forge Rod Run roared into Pigeon Forge last weekend with the usual array of beautiful classic cars and thousands of hood-peepers and tire-kickers.

The event popped their hoods at the new location, the LeConte Center on Teaster Lane, and the parking lot was full of vendors and inside were more vendors and entertainment. But the stars of the show were the lovingly restored Detroit classics and the creatively re-designed car models presented by the owners, many who spent the day polishing their cars and eagerly answering questions.
