Thank you to @FitmentIndustries for sending my porsche all the way to Tennessee! I’m so stoked to be in town for Slammedenuff Gatlinburg. To start our trip out, we took the 911 all the way to the tail of the dragon. Afterwards, we cruised the strip, went to the premeet, met up with friends, and drove the local touges!

Much better touch the flame for good luck there we go got it so your nipples is blasting me I can’t I can’t turn it off air nibble all right well we have a nice 10 hour trip ridiculous getting across the country here but uh I’m on book three of The

And make it to I’m so hungry make it to Gatlinburg we’re starting to trip off with smash city let’s go we’re really starting today off today’s video off with a bang smash shitty Knoxville look at this okay I accidentally ordered this okay they have something called the rad style and

I thought the burger oh Joe take a look at this let me see what’s the problem what what’s the presentation like everything I’ve ever wanted in a burger wow look at that yeah I accidentally got this he thought okay he thought he meant you got a burger and

You got fries like that but they put your burger on the fries yeah I mean it’s still cool it’s an experience whoa she just digged into the bite without me what do you think smash Patty Kyle if you’re watching this I’m sorry you have to continue the

Burger surge without you you ready for this I’m gonna Crush that whole thing unreal insane unrest or not this is already getting a high a high rating we’re gonna get Smash Patty yeah signature smash sauce here we’ll do and then we’ll get a pickle thick cut pickle look at that oh wait

Let’s get it hold on let’s there we go look at that what do we think here we go all right this is the rad style Smash burger fries still not the best Smashburger I’ve had Minnesota still has the crown but this is a solid seven seven and a half seven seven it’s

Excellent It’s really good good way to start the trip now the kind people over at slam enough and King Customs were uh were nice enough to hold the Porsche for us for a few days until we could actually get out here so we have a nice 30 minute drive

To go pick up the Porsche and we will finally have the P car out to 2705 Winfield oh here in Tennessee uh it’s gonna be awesome tomorrow for us today for you guys we’ll be taking the Porsche to the tail of the the Tail of the Dragon which is going to

Be fantastic but tonight we’re gonna go get the car get settled into the Airbnb and figure things out thank you we have an early one this morning this morning good morning guys and I guess officially welcome to Gatlinburg Tennessee we are up early on Friday because we are officially hitting tail of a

Dragon and we’re going to get there early for the massive grounds up on 9 11. all right oh gosh man this is actually pretty freaking cool little secret hidden compartment right here a little morning fill up before we hit the dragon I am so pumped I was really

Looking forward to this and hoping that we would have enough time with the car to be able to do it and we lucked out heading for a little Sunrise Dragon run first we gotta get gas oh yeah listen that that flat six let’s show them the route real fast so we have

We have about an hour and a half and a half until we get to the start of the Dragon now if you guys don’t know tale of the Dragon is probably one of the most if not the most famous roads in America it is the ultimate American Toge so

Basically it’s 30 miles of the craziest roads that you can drive here this has been a lifelong this has been a lifelong dream for me and especially since I’ve gotten the Porsche what I really want to do is take this on Amazing roads and Tail of the Dragon is obviously number

One this is going to be insane I think this is gonna be the perfect car it’s got very light steering it’s a small car or rear engine it’s very pointy it’s gonna be the perfect Drive oh also we’ll show you later but we got new fresh re-71 rs’s bbs’s I’m pumped if you

Couldn’t tell so I want to start our drive and let you guys know once we actually make it to the start of the Dragon let’s go start turn right okay I guess I think that this is the store this looks insane the start of our Smoky Mountain

Adventure begins here so I think we still have about 20 miles till we actually hit the Tail of the Dragon but these are gonna be some pretty gnarly roads nonetheless this is so freaking cool when is this look at that how beautiful oh my goodness foreign we have seen some pretty amazing things

So far our little Smoky Mountains trip but for us this marks our start of tale of the Dragon I want to go through all these twisties and turns all the way until the little gift shop end right here which is officially called tale of the Dragon I am so pumped like I told

You guys the P car is going to be perfect for this it’s a small lightweight car very pointy steering rear engine we’ve got the grippy re71 RS is I think this is going to be a fantastic drive I’m excited to take you guys along look at this freaking Road it’s been a

Great start to our Gatlinburg trip are you ready for this let’s do it only appropriate way to do this 11 miles of this how do we look okay let’s get started okay all right well that is a weird issue very strange issue anyways same thing as Japan

Always respect the road respect the tow game let’s have some fun oh my gosh there we go PC and all right foreign what a road oh my gosh it’s saying wow that’s insane foreign man the way this car handles is unreal it’s so tight not a fast car but it’s definitely a

Proper driver’s car it’s got a photo guy here no power steering really makes you feel this car the way the gearing is being in second gear with all the torque is kind of nice because this car is so underpowered well those are big trucks so this is perfect

This is just what we needed we’re getting some of the smoke look at this I hope you guys can see because I can’t see a damn thing dude this road is unreal handling it just I mean you could tell unfortunately what they were doing when building this car I mean they don’t

Really they don’t make cars like this anymore this is looking good you hit the Six Mile Mark so we’re about to be halfway through it okay mile five and a half okay so now we are officially halfway through foreign sounds incredible bouncing off the walls of the Mountaineer

Feels like I’m on a track kill the dragon whoa that’s so cool cap motorcycle uh look at that we made it cool cool welcome groups we survived the dragon man what a freaking car I’m so happy we picked the 911 we made it literally like you were

Hugging the ground it was perfect it was insane you gotta figure out that AC issue when we’re back home it AC is turned off but it blows when I press the Gap it’s weird it’s weird but final stop the little gift shop thing which I want

To go check out isn’t open just yet they open at nine so we have about 30 minutes to go but that was a hundred percent worth it we did it we conquered the dragon look how sick this is right oh my God now we can say we have we officially did it foreign

Actually had this really cool little gift shop where you can stop and get stickers and whatever you want much like how when we go to Japan and do the tokes they have the little Toge stops to get the badges we gotta get one for the Porsche this is so rad oh my gosh

Oh look that’s the dragon dragon slayer three sticker one more person that’s pretty rad how am I gonna choose which sticker to get this is cool Tail of the Dragon that’s really rad this is sick this is I don’t know which one to do oh my gosh

This is what I’m talking about this is freaking dope actually now which one to do I wish they just have white oh they do that is sick we’ll do a small one Mission success you know what we have to do this is just like Japan I’ve conquered the dragon we gotta put the

Sticker on the one we decided to go with is this guy just a cool little badge I think we’ll start the the badge right here what do you think perfect I’ll take a spot right that’s sick now we have to do more roads to get more veggies do it right here

Perfect look at that our first badge on the 911 that’s pretty sick now also we want to do this for you guys too since we’re here we decided to go ahead and get the same sticker that I use I’ll be doing a giveaway for you guys now what should I have them comment

Experience and there’s so many other roads besides just Taylor dragon out here it’s pretty gnarly I’m surprised we haven’t seen more cars though me too but I’m so glad that we came early so it wasn’t packed and you got to like drive it yeah so we got on the dragon around 7

30 7 45 it was perfect timing so we’re gonna make our way back and we have the pre-meet tonight little dragon break sounds like we got a pretty gnarly Squad of cars coming right now oh little Miyake Mia gang right here that’s pretty sick listen

We got a lot of stuff to take care of before the preemie tonight and getting ready for the actual show which is two days Saturday and Sunday foreign Forge Pigeon Forge southern cooking families welcome to uh Mama’s Kitchen well this is the the most Tennessee meal

I think we could have possibly got for our first year 100 oh my God much needed after waking up at 5am and hitting the dragon so I’m gonna smash this and head back to the Airbnb finished lunch we’re gonna head back to the Airbnb but first I figured we would

Drive down this trip there’s so many cars Just Around Town driving around there’s people like sitting on the side of the road just watching the cars I’ve never seen anything like this look at all the cars right here look at this are just everywhere what’s going on cars literally everywhere

We have definitely never been to a show like this this reminds me of when I used to live in Mississippi and travel to like Florida and Atlanta and Houston everybody get their gets their crew together and cruises just down one just down one strip it is so rad like the car

Go hit the pre-meet tonight to see all of the cars to hopefully meet some of you guys before the show tomorrow it’s gonna be a ton of fun I I know I’ve said this 18 times already but I’m so pumped that we brought the Porsche here it’s

Definitely not the most show worthy car I guess to bring to a car show but for the experience of being in Gatlinburg I feel like it was the perfect car and it’s just cool and unique it’s very rare that you see a 80s Porsche out and about

So it’s been so much fun driving it I’m so excited to take it to its first meet and hopefully meet you guys we’re gonna I think we might just look at this yeah T-money has a work call she has to hop on but I’m gonna go lay on my couch and
