Description: well back in oct we desided to try and take a small vacation for our anniversary and my wifes birthday.i really wanted to go to gatlinburg as i hadnt been since i was a kid and we had found out years ago they have a star cars museum.we book and pay for a nice hotel a month in advance and we get down there and our tranny starts slipping in our malibu so were trying to find the hotel and we see there sign but its bewteen 3 hotels so we can find the right one so we finally find the check in part and its nice then we get sent to our room which was way in the back with no view and it looked a like an abandon building no joke,and it turns out the building as mostly their laundry room lol,so we get in there on the top floor oh and before i forget there was signs everwhere back there that sais they werent responcible for theft or damage to cars so we get to our room and it looks ok but no view like in broshure and there is wiring all over the floor running under the tables and such and then the fridge dont work the lights dont work so needless to say were pissed so after 15 min of calling the front desk we get a answer from this rude butthole who sends a maintence man to look at the probs and gives excuses why things arent working and were taping all this to show when we get home,well after he leaves to do whatever i notice that theres atleast a 1inch gap from the car and the bottom of the door(i guess so they can peak on you),so thats the last straw we pack up and start calling other hotels while were loading up and find a whole lot nicer one cheaper(prob cause they felt bad from what had happend)so i go back to get our money back and the guy(full of tatoos,nothing against people who do) wouldnt even look at me and wouldnt say a word i guess cause customers were behind me and as i was walking out one stopped me and asked any and i told them that its bs and they shouldnt do people like that and i feel they shouldve tried to make things better instead of having this "oh well" attitude so i dont really know if he was a customer or someone who worked there but they need to be shut down or find someone else to run it.so we get checked in at other hotel which is 2 hotels down from them and its beautiful with waterfalls and pools on inside and we got a nice room to view it all and everyone was super nice.so we unpacked and went walking around(was really really close to the main strip i might ad)so we went to star cars and if u want to waste your money on poor replicas then this is the place for you.their bubble bee looks to be one of the real ones but their herbie is replica,their gone is 60 sec stang is replica,their general lee that they claim is a real one is horrible,it has horrible decals has incorrectly mounted pushbar,most of the chrome trim is painted orange,has blk dash,the taillight pan was still orange not blk like in the show,they even had reflectors screwed into the fenders and quarters to look like turn signals which most generalees didnt have cause they used so many 68s they just started making them have none on the show,we get up stairs and theres the bandit trans am they claim is th eonly one left over from the 1st and was giving to them from burt lmao,i told the girl who was working there if i could prove they werent real cold we get our money back and she said yes which she lied i proved her worng.so there is a 77 there but its been cheaply repainted and has the pin stripes poorly put on from a roll not preformed and the shaker is mounted to the hood and the door handels painted blk lol,they also had later style standard door panels instead of the correct 76-77 deluxe and the seats were right but looked like a kid put the covers on very poor work,the center caps were from later chrome hex ones(79-81 style) they also screwed up on several spots of the pinstripping but i guess it was ok but they shouldnt say there are the real deals and are not,next we went looking for their kitt(lot of cars im not gonna post about too much time to)so we get to kitt and it has the cheaper extra long replica nose not the show one and it has a ruff 1/2 season dash with 3/4 season pods and a really small steering whl,not to mention their hoof for a shifter lol and reflectors to keep the headliner up lol,it was a good shape 82 but the conversion parts werent and it even still had the front lower air deflectors which were removed from the tvs after the first episode so and i see soemthing odd theres a sticker on the back bumper which states "code one auto" which made kitt replicas back in the 90s and done really crapping work,i also showed this to the girl there but she still claimed it was an orig car from the 3rd season,by then i was like wtf ever u know,so they have the batmobile(keaton) which was ok but wheel spacing and size was horrible then atlast they have a front end of kitt coming through a wall which they should remove that nose cause its a 3/4 season moled orig nose and put it on their fake a$$ replica it would deff make it look better.so be careful with these clowns and barris states all through this place that he build and designed all these cars well hes full of u know what theres alot he had nothing to do with.
