Mountain Run 6
May 13-16, 2018
Most participants arrived in Fontana Village on Saturday, May 12. Over 30 Corvette owners and passengers toured the roads & enjoyed the scenery of western North Carolina, northern Georgia, and eastern Tennessee. Many continued on to the annual C4 Gathering held at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. MR6 may well be remembered as the Twisty Nirvana Run.

Lovely couple ... wonder if they drive a Vette?

Looks like a Floridian enjoying a leisurely drive in the mountains
But officer, we promise we haven't been speeding or doing doughnuts
Alternators seem to break at the most inopportune times
So, did we all park straight?
Maybe not ...
Where shall we eat?
How about Hofer's?
How we felt after driving Wayah Road
Looks like a bunch of Wazoos & friends
What's in the bag, Dave? Perhaps some goodies from Hofer's Bakery for the long ride back to the windy city, eh?
Robert's leaf stripping speed clogged Gunny's brake cooling vents
In December 2017 a massive land slide east of Fontana Dam closed NC-28 for several months
