Show promoter Charlie Cobble decided to move the 32nd Annual Ford F-100 Supernationals back to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, after six years of being held at Knoxville's Chilhowee Park.
This year's show was held at the new Pigeon Forge Municipal City Event Center along the shady banks of the Little Pigeon River. The show attracted 912 early-model Ford trucks from 35 states, three provinces of Canada, and visitors from Norway, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Japan. At the opening ceremony, five Blue Oval custom masterpieces were unveiled for the first time for all to see. This year's show allowed folks to stroll up and down endless rows of a rainbow of incredible trucks. The vendor's village was packed with 71 aftermarket manufacturers displaying their latest products for showgoers to check out. The two-day show was dampened by daily thundershowers, but that didn't affect the enormous crowds. All who attended had a great time.
