    Default Carlisle Ford Nationals

    My paperwork arrived today. They have me located at the back fence. Looks like the hillside is covered with trucks. My wife and I were in Carlisle over the weekend for a family wedding. The Mopar nationals were going on. Didnít seem to be too well attended. I hope the Ford Nationals do better.

    A great 2 days at the show. I picked up a set of 84 aluminum wheels for $30. Another set of Asc wheels for $180. A HVAC control panel for $20. I could have came home so much more but the rental is only so big and shipping back to CA is not easy.

    Finally copied the few pictures to the computer of the event.

    The show was good. Attendance on Friday was about 50%, Saturday was about 75% compared to other years. Not bad considering the circumstances I suppose. The weather was good. Hot but overcast so your brains didn't bake too bad. The Saturday parade was cancelled.

    Here was my competition:

    The red one is a Crimson Cat that needs work. The owner gave the "patina" a cover of clear coat. The white one is a White Lightning that should look like this:

    His wheels are the gold TRXs possibly with the original tires. Interestingly it has an I6 under the hood. Needs a lot of TLC but would be gorgeous if restored.

    Since my competitors were somewhat new, I took first place! WooHoo!

    I can start my own "I love me" wall now.

    Hopefully, I'll still be somewhere around here to go next year.

    Thanks for the complements. Shows are few and far between this year. Everyone at Carlisle was glad to have been there.
