I live near Asheville NC and only 66 miles from Knoxville.  Yes, car clubs, car shows, etc.,

Tennessee Valley Mustang Club has an annual show that's been an annual event for more than 2 decades.
Knoxville is a super place to live and visit. I have been there a ton of times over the past 3 decades.  They have the Knoxville Zoo also.

Like a few has mentioned, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and even upstate GA is close and lots of Mustang events going on in a 200+ mile radius.

Also the annual Pigeon Forge Rod Run, is amazing with 1000's of all makes and models of automobiles.

As a matter of fact, Ponies in the Smokies is going to be next weekend, a 4 day show (March 20th-23rd) and will host over 1000 Mustangs for the 4 day event.  This is just their 3rd annual show and has gained attention in most of the 4 state spread of TN, GA, NC and SC.  And as far away as FL and beyond.

Check out www.tnvalleymustang.com  as well as www.poniesinthesmokies.com.

And if you're thinking about moving to TN, to me, thats a good move, but I'd advise maybe taking a weekend, fly down, get you a rental car and check things out.  I think you'll be happy you did   ;)

OK here is a tough one. Drugs. We got big problems in NY. Andy seems to think it's OK to legalize gateway drugs and start up huge drug treatment centers to fix it. I am sure it is everywhere, but would like it less in the local news.

We do that up here. Taking care of these people has become a government industrial complex.

Man! Your right! They are making money off it in NY. I guess until we really want to stop it, it will be here and there. Sad.

If you want more of something, subsidize it.

Want less? Tax it.

Unfortunately it's prevalent everywhere, and Knoxville's biggest issue is pain killers abuse (Opiates). We live west of Knoxville near Farragut and haven't noticed the Opiate issue firsthand.

We are considering Farragut and close to that. Nice area, do you know if I could get a nice place and either have or build a nice building to hold cars?

Yes you can, the exception again is some of the HOA areas have architectural restrictions on garage designs, i.e. style to match house. Size wouldn't be an issue on a larger lot, 2+ acres.  Mine required my garage design match the existing house style, set back needed to be 40 feet from street, and garage doors not facing the street.  None of these restrictions were deal breakers for us, the fact it's a gated private community more than made up for any "hassles".
Another area to consider, especially being a car guy, is the Tellico Village area (S/W of Farragut) which has a big car club. The properties near the lakes are higher priced (if boating is an interest) otherwise most homes are in the 400K- 700K range on 1+ acres. I can refer you to our local RealEstate agent (she lives next door to us) she's low pressure, very diligent in searching for a homes and very easy to get along with. Just let me Frankie if I can help in any way.

Is that a good or bad thing? Not sure what that is? New here, you know.

Go to the SAAC Forum home page and type "pookie" in the search box on the top right. You may be disappointed to leave the drug problems of NY just to find that you're Pookie's neighbor.  :o

*EDIT* "neighbor" as in the same region of the country - I think he is based in Burnsville, NC a mere 117 miles from Knoxville.
