Tony Perry and his 1969 Camaro Bring Home the Detroit Speed Modern Muscle Award at Shades of the Past.

shades-of-the-past-2014-013Mooresville, NC –  The Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup #32 was a fantastic weekend of good fun and great cars. Shades is located in Pigeon Forge, TN in Dollywood’s Splash County and brings people out to the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains from all over the United States. This event is now in its 32nd year and is going stronger than ever. There was the Best in Show competition, Best Street Cruiser, Street Rod and Street Machine awards to go along with Detroit Speed’s own “Modern Muscle” Award. Along with these are also the hugely popular ’32 Ford giveaway and the $10,000 dollar giveaway and a 50/50 $25,000 dollar giveaway. Shades of the Past then takes the other $25,000 and donates it to local charities. There was also a swap meet, a vendor midway, and a judging area for the top 25 at the event. This year the weather was very hot but that didn’t deter customers from coming out for the event. Booth traffic was great both days with customers having a real interest in the DSE 1963 Chevy II.

It was another great year at Shades of the Past. We definitely look forward to heading back next year.

Shades of the Past Highlights

• Tony Perry won the Detroit Speed Modern Muscle Award in his DSE “Equipped” 1969 Camaro

• Bob Millard won the BFGoodrich Team T/A award with his 1933 Ford 

• Richard Winchester’s wife, Jackie, brought Richard and Jackie’s 1968 Firebird to the Detroit Speed booth for the weekend.
