I had a blast at the Sevierville Convention Center this past weekend. Byron and Ronnie put on a GREAT show! I met people from North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana who all braved the cold and rain to come out to the 40th Anniversary of the "Cruisin' the Smokies" Corvette Expo. The Corvette Club, "Vettes of the Smokies" had a great turnout. Also, Congratulations go out to "Vettes of the Smokies" member Gary Watson, who was chosen as the Farris Insurance "Ladies Choice Award" winner! His 1965 Corvette was FABULOUS! See you guys again next year!
All I can say about the Run to the Sun show is WOW. It’s taken 2 whole days to recuperate. I talked to a lot of our current insureds, and a lot more collectors. As Jimmy B. says, "The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful.” Yes, the weather was there; clear and cold. The automobiles were beautiful. The car folks came out in the thousands!! I saw the number 3,000 on a dash plaque. Wow. I want to says thanks to everyone who came by and talked with us. A lot of positive comments about our collector car companies and the fine work they do in protecting our “babies”, our works in progress and our finished show pieces. I’m resting up for a couple of days before we travel to Charlotte and Pigeon Forge the second weekend in April. Look for posts on Facebook (www.facebook.com/FarrisInsuranceAgency), Twitter (@FarrisInsAgency) and Instagram (@FarrisInsAgency). Until then...

Okay, here we are, getting on the road to Myrtle Beach. Run to the Sun or bust! We have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have taken off successfully...and haven't forgotten anything...that we know of. The bad news is that the Caddy didn't get to come along this time. She needed new brakes and our mechanic is coming to the show. Surprised? You shouldn't be. No shoes, no shirt, no service. We were just out of time and luck for this show. So, for the time being, it's "Cruisin' in the '07 Chevy Tahoe". We'll keep you posted on what's going on in, hopefully SUNNY, South Carolina! Check in later!
When you meet someone for the first time, you want to introduce yourself to them with descriptive terms so that they. 1. Remember you. 2. They get to know the “real” you. And 3. You hope they like you and want to continue the conversation. So here goes...
