Geez, it’d been a good six years or so since I’d had the pleasure of heading out to beautiful Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, for the F-100 Supernats. My ol’ pal Pat Ford was runnin’ the show back then and the gathering was one that I looked forward to every year. But with my transfer back to the street rod world, business had me hitting the car shows instead of the truck shows for a while. During the time I was missing out on the Supernats a gent by the name of Charlie Cobble (the driving force behind www.autoshows.cc) had taken over the helm. Now back behind the wheel here at CLASSIC TRUCKS, the F-100 Supernationals again became one of the premier shows of the event season—and I was excited to head back to Pigeon Forge to see what I’d been missing.

Well, first of all, Charlie ended up being a super guy (just like Pat) and the show was every bit as awesome as any I’d attended in the past. The event was well put together and ran without a flaw. The well over 700 vehicles that attended were downright beautiful, and the people were as friendly as ever! It was just like old times for me with the icing on the cake being my friends from LMC Truck being the event’s main sponsor—I felt as though I was literally in heaven, heck at least I was in God’s country!

The show ran Thursday through Saturday and as always included countless show classes, and the most trophies, awards, and giveaways (including over $2,500 in gift certificates from LMC Truck alone) I’ve ever seen at any event I’ve ever attended. Along with Charlie, Sam Memmelo (star of the TV show Motorhead Garage) kept the crowd entertained as master of ceremonies throughout the weekend. But, aside from the large selections of classic truck industry vendors, countless trophies and awards, a really good-sized swap meet, and lots of entertainment and music, the real stars of the show were the hundreds of awesome F-100’s displayed in the huge event show area.

The F-100 Supernationals has been and always will be the nation’s premier F-100 show and one that any red-blooded classic Ford trucker should have on their perpetual “must attend” list each and every season! With that said, let’s take a look at some of the hundreds of beautiful F-100 at this year’s F-100 Supernationals. We’ll be there looking for ya next year in Pigeon Forge! CT
