ImportAlliance: Fall Meet 2012 (Nashville, TN)
Every year, car enthusiasts from all over the Midwest and East Coast make it a point to put Import Alliance Summer Meet in Nashville, Tennessee on their list of “must attend shows” of the year. It’s hard to find such a huge, comprehensive gathering of JDM, Euro, and Domestic vehicles anywhere else in the nation. Import Alliance’s Spring Meet (held in Atlanta) and Fall Meet (held in Nashville), however, are also creeping into those “must attend” lists as attendance has steadily grown for these events over the last few years and this Fall Meet was no different.
Although the attendance is a fraction of its Summer counterpart, the eclectic mixture of cars, styles, and attendees is still very much in tact. You can walk down any row of cars at LP Field’s multiple parking lots and see everything from an S14 drift car to an aired out Volkswagen or a 69 Camaro. With a closer knit atmosphere due to the smaller venue, the crowds found no problems bonding over a few burnouts, two-steps, and drifting as many cars left the show on Sunday in front of a captive audience crowding the sidewalks.
