2012 marked the inaugural event for the Smokin’ Classics BBQ Fest and Classic Car Show located at Lake Lanier Islands Resort. It turned out to be a lovely day. The weather was perfect and location was a beautiful setting. The event was cozy, with about 60 cars registered for the classic car show portion, which is, of course, why we went. Not bad for their first year! Registration for the car show was free with 16 Trophy Classes and “Best All Around” won a 2 Night Stay At Lake Lanier Islands Resort. Really nice prize for the winner. We brought out several of our customer cars including the ’71 Green Firebird Formula, ’68 Red Convertible Mustang, and oddball Porsche 928.
In addition to the classic car and bike show the event included live music all day from 4 Atlanta local bands (Lefty Williams Band, Men in Blues, Donna Hopkins, and Mudcat) and an amateur BBQ contest. Doesn’t get much better than that.
We managed to snap a few pics in the midst of all the fun we were having. Check it out, be jealous if you didn’t go, and we hope to see you next year.
