Default Moving to Nashville

I'll be moving from Dallas to Nashville later this summer and have no idea what the car scene is like out there. What do I need to know? Are there reputable Subaru tuners in the area? Weekly/monthly meets? Great driving roads? Please fill me in and introduce yourselves!

For some pics and info about my car, check out my build thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2352511

Nasty car dude. I lived near Nash for 4 years in college, and my girl lives there now finishing up law school. There are some decent roads around there in Franklin, Smithville (center hill lake) etc. not like in the eastern part of the state though. But you are only a few hrs away from that. (I actually live 15 minutes from Deals Gap).

Only Subaru dealer that Ive been to and have heard about is in downtown Nash, and I can't remember the name...search it. It's been mentioned before.

I may be moving there from Maryville in about a year also.

Anyway, welcome to TN. Funny....my gf actually moved from Dallas (Flower Mound) to Nashville.

Thanks man! Small world - my ex lives in Flower Mound, so I've spent a lot of time there. If you end up in Nashville next year, then maybe we'll cross paths!

I've been trying to find any kind of subie community and haven't had any luck yet. So maybe we just be the only ones until more arrive. I'm down for a meet any weekend.

Awesome car. Looks great. I try to get out that way when I can to visit a few friends. There appears to be a number of members on here and other forums up at Ft. Campbell which is just an hour north of Nashville. At least my next trip out I will be driving an STi, regardless of which one I bring.

I pulled up next to another black STi in Nashville the other night. His name on here is culti. This week & weekend are insane for me (currently have my steering torn apart while I replace tie rod ends, ball joints, and a CV boot), but next week would be great. I live in the 12South neighborhood of Nashville.

I'm around there. I'm at Harding pl and Nolansville rd. Does anybody know if people still meet in Franklin at moes every Saturday? I read it somewhere on here that they do but the date of the thread was kinda old.

There's a Cars and Coffee that meets at the Thoroughbred Theaters in Cool Springs behind the McDonalds Saturday mornings when the weather is good. They meet around 9:00am until the last car leaves. 1st Saturday of every month, the Porsche and Ferrari groups meet. There was a Bugatti Veyron that showed up a couple of months ago, so there's no telling what someone will bring.

Other than that, sorry about moving to Nashville... lol. Lived there for 6 years and the subie crowd was pretty thin. A bunch of good rotary guys and even more general car enthusiasts though.

I am in South Nashville/Brentwood area. The Subaru crowd is a bit thin, but there are a lot of car guys around town. The cars & coffee in Cool Springs is a pretty good meet and you never know what will show up.

I would also like to meet up with some of the folks on the forum. I am "expected" to receive my 13 STI on 10/8!

Hey! just pm'd you!
I'm in Nashville and I'm starting a Subaru diesel build...
If you still have the cv's out I'd love to come and do couple measurements as right now I have not solved the cv situation in my project. 2012 6 speed gearbox into 1996 brighton! I think the CV's are just 1 inch longer and I need to upgrade to 05+ knuckles.

Very cool! I replied to your PM. I'll have the axle & CV off tomorrow, in case you want to come by and measure it.
