Video: Shades Of The Past Car Show Cancelled After 39 Years!

Shades of the Past in Pigeon Forge Tennessee is one of the more iconic shows that goes on in the area. Pigeon Forge is known for being a stunning and cool vacation spot in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, an area southeast of Knoxville. This area is a tourist destination even without car and truck shows, but there are some great ones that attract even more folks from all over the country. The Shades of the Past show has been going on for almost 40 years but because the Dollywood parks have decided not to renew their lease of the parking lot for the show, the Shades of the Past Club members have decided they just don’t have the energy to try to relocate this whole show somewhere else. So after 39 years, they are going to retire.

We weren’t there, but our friend Tommy Lee Byrd, the Hot Rod Hoarder, was on hand to enjoy this last show. He got all kinds of cool video content and is sharing it all below.

Video Description:

What a shame! The Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup has been a staple in the Smoky Mountains in the early 1980’s, and it was recently canceled, because Dollywood wants to extend its Splash Country schedule. I had a great time at the final Shades of the Past car show, but felt pretty sad that this awesome event was coming to an end. Take a look at some of my favorite vehicles from the show, as well as some cruising coverage, and a quick look at the Magnificent 7, the top cars from the show.
