About five hours out from Memphis is the great Tennessee city of Chattanooga. And this year, the city is playing host to the inaugural Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, sponsored — quite excitingly — by Volkswagen of America. That makes the event the perfect fall road trip destination for any VW fans in the Memphis area. Some of us from the dealership will certainly be going.
The event will be held in downtown Chattanooga from Oct. 11-13. The festival will celebrate your favorite classic and historic vehicles and benefits the Chattanooga Erlanger Neuroscience Institute. Bring the whole family to this first-ever Chattanooga Motorcar Festival to enjoy a number of family activities, watch the road rally, take in the concours d’elegance, and spectate during the “Between the Bridges” time trial.
If you’re lucky, you’ll even get to meet some famous people in automotive circles, including master car restorer Wayne Carini and racing legend Brian Redman. Donald Osborne of Jay Leno’s Garage fame will even be on hand.
“We welcome and value Volkswagen’s support of the Chattanooga MotorCar Festival,” remarked Byron DeFoor, founder of the Chattanooga MotorCar Festival. “Volkswagen understands the value of showcasing not only new cars, but classic cars, in a dynamic venue, and providing family entertainment at the same time.”
