I’ve always heard about the Import Alliance meets and shows in Tennessee and Georgia; but I’ve never had a chance to make the trip up. This year I decided I was going to make it no matter what. So Friday evening me, my girlfriend, and a friend of mine drove up in the middle of the night from Orlando despite the rain. We reached Atlanta at like 4am and tried to find a hotel – all of which were sold out (From three cities over before reaching Atlanta). Which lead us to sleeping in a Walmart parking lot in our car. When we woke up we headed over to a Publix to get food and then washed up and headed over to the meet. We were greeted by thousands and thousands of enthusiasts lining the parking lots waiting to get in. After about two hours of waiting in line (which isn’t bad at all considering the organization level of the parking and the sheer number of people trying to get in) we were guided into the venue, parked, and ready to take on the world. Check out some of the photos here and in the second post following this one for more.

(Side Note: I didn’t attend on the second day – Sunday – All of the images in both posts are from Saturday)
