Ever Been to Carlisle? Join us Again in 2024!

Hey everyone,

Over the years we have had some incredibly large meets at Carlisle. It has been amazing to see 60-70 cars lined up on the showfield. There were years where we ran out of parking spots and had to take over the next row as well.

I realize the cars are getting older, many have moved on to other cars and other phases of their life. One thing I had always hoped is that the friendships would remain after the cars went away. While that has remained the case for many, we have seen members drop off that seemed to be a staple at meets of the past.

I am imploring anyone that has ever been to Carlisle, to try and come back one more time. Come see your friends! Come hang with the group. It doesn't matter what you drive... We can try to carpool from the hotel to save on parking.

Let's push for one more large meet! The club is getting smaller, that is inevitable. I assume the club will always have a presence at Carlisle. We are just pushing for one more meet where we fill the tent with friends and family.

There is still time to book a vacation and grab a room in a hotel block.

Questions? Reach out to me and I will do what I can to help.

All in on the “Come on Back to Carlisle”, family needs to get together as time goes on.
Some of the “kids” have grown up but need to show up! Please !!
Not sure of the work it takes but maybe an email blast like ROM would reach some more folks

2024 is my 20th trip to Carlisle. Started attending the Chrysler show in 2004, went to the GM show in 2008. I didn't have an LH to show from 2005 through 2008 (my Pontiac brought me to the GM show in '08), but even I still didn't have one I would still go just to hang out with fa"M"ily!

Maybe 21st trip if you count going to Corvettes at Carlisle in 2001 with my dad, way back when he had his C5 drop top.

If I lived closer I might even make the trip for the Ford nationals, just to chat with Model A guys and peruse the swap meet for Model A parts, but that may be something we do if I can ever get a car hauler of our own to haul the A to the show in the future!

That might be worth the trip before ever taking a car to the Ford show.

No need to worry. There won't be any Chrysler guys that will see you at a Ford show!
