May 1998 Atlanta Meet 

Imperial Home Page -> Events -> May 1998 Atlanta Meet

The first Atlanta "Meet" was held on May 16, 1998.  This was not really a formal car show, but was more of an informal gathering of a few Imperial owners and fans in the Atlanta, GA, area.  Chris Hawkins hosted the gathering at the beautiful Southern Center for International Studies, which was a terrific venue for this event.

The pictures below show how much fun we all had at this event.  For several of us, this was the first time we had ever had so many Imperials -- and Imperial owners! -- together in one place.  We all had a great day of admiring cars, trading tips, making a few repairs, and sharing knowledge and fun.  This informal gathering proved to be the beginning of annual events in Atlanta and later Chattanooga, bringing together Imperialists from the entire Southeast region.
