Our club here in Knoxville welcomes all kinds of modelers. That being said, while we have a few "car guys" in our club, in all honesty most of our members are aircraft, armor, or figure builders. Official name of our group is Knoxville Scale Modelers Association (KSMA). We are an IPMS-chartered club since 1975. We meet the second Tuesday of each month at the HobbyTown shop in the Turkey Creek shopping area on the west side of Knoxville.
The main car club in our area is the "Sick Puppies Auto Modelers" (SPAM) in nearby Maryville, Tennessee. They are quite active and meet monthly, I believe at the Hobby Lobby store there. Their guys have helped judge the car categories at our annual contest for many years. Unfortunately, try as I might, I don't seem to have any current contact info for them.
SPAM's president for a long time was Monty Lowans, quite a nice gent and a well-known and accomplished modeler. But I know he has had some health problems, and don't know if he is still doing that job. Hopefully you can find info on the club in one of the car modeling web sites or magazines that maintains a list of clubs.
Good luck--sorry I can't be more help, but let me know if I can do anything else.
NOTE: (Sick Puppies Auto Modelers) still meet at Hobby Lobby in Maryville, TN on the third Saturday of each month from 10-12. Call Hobby Lobby to confirm.
