Whatever happened to GM Carlisle?

33 posts in this topic

We were hoping to get enough people to get a car club tent, doesn't look good for that now.

But I am planning to go - likely on Saturday.

I won't be sure until just before the show.

I may try to come on Saturday. Lord knows a distraction will do me good. I think I'm going to try for my brother's go-karting party for Thursday the 26th, so it looks like it won't interfere. Edited by ocnblu

Sorry guys, I dropped the ball on this one. Work took a turn for the worse for me in the month of May, and now I'm just waiting for the school year to finally be over with (the student's last day is Thursday, we end Friday). I get a 5-week break before heading back for my summer hours that I work the end of July through the end of August, before the new school year begins on September 1. Enough about that.

The All-GM Nationals car show runs from Friday, June 20th through Sunday, June 22nd. Anyone that plans to go just for one day is best to choose Saturday (21st), as that's when a good majority of the show cars/trucks are there on display. If you;d like more information about the GM show, or Carlisle Fairgrounds in general, then check out these links:

I will be there on Saturday (21st) with my two year-old son (Justin) and my dad. I'll be pulling around a red Radio Flyer All-Terrain Wagon (ATW) with a canopy (and a chilled-out 2 y-o under it!).

Maybe next year more C&G posters can commit early on and we can register as a club. I believe the deadline to do so was in April or early May. I'll post next year's date as soon as it's published so I and anyone else who wants to volunteer can try to arrange something more "concrete".

Hope to see some C&Gers there!!! :AH-HA_wink:

Unfortunately I'm way too busy to go this year. Hopefully next year I'll be in a better spot and will be able to bring the Suburban or DeVille. If anybody going wants to pick me up a copy of that book, though, I would gladly pay you back (or give you the money in advance, whichever is easier)

I really want to go. It would be the first car show I've been to in a while, and certainly the biggest. Of course I want to go to the all Chrysler one, but going to this means (hopefully) meeting a bunch of people from here. The only question is if I'll have the funds.

Well, I am most definitely going to try to make it down this Saturday if my paycheck on Thursday is enough to support the trip.

I think I'm coming out on Saturday, if the weather's conducive. My truck's all back together. Camino, I still have your phone # here somewhere. How about if we all pick an entry gate number to meet at? I only have the Onstar phone in the truck, no cell, so I could communicate that way until I'm parked, at least. I can PM that number if anyone wants it.

I recently finished a large job for a client who spends most of her time in another city. Well, she " was pokey" about sending the check (her words). If it doesn't come tomorrow, I will not be able to go at all.

I'll let you know.

We need to get some Hunter Orange ammo vests made up with the C&G logo so we can ID each other.

Well, I'm going. So that's GMTG74, SuperSport 623, LeoC2 with his Elky, and ocn. Only 4 people? Well, it shouldn't be too hard to find each other, but I don't see how Carlisle Productions can stay in business with only 4 of us at such a big event. Where's Viper? Has anyone heard from him?

I'm still on the fence... I've got $90 on me and I need to fill up my tank, still. I'm going to calculate it out and see if its worth it. If not, I'll miss yet another year.

Edit: So it's a 175 mile trip and it'll cost me a good $70 factoring in food and admission fees. I think I'll have to wait another year.
