There was a massive turnout of over 1000 show cars on Saturday. Great weather, guests and a wide array of cars helped make the GM Carlisle event the best weekend of its type. Bobby Allison held a non-stop audience for over two hours, Paul Koerner, Dennis Kirban and Andrew Flippone, Jr. hosted seminars and Q&A sessions, while Bruce Larson's Cacklefest drew crowds with each session.
Displays included one dedicated to Hi-Po Buicks, Turbo Buicks, the Buick Grand National and the GNX. The showfield hosted nearly 100 years of automotive history with cars ranging from the 1900s to modern day with 88 different show classes, an enormous car corral and 1,000 vendor spaces.
With just as many cruisers as muscle cars onsite, there was a very impressive snapshot of Detroit's best. A handful of awards were issued and Sunday concluded with an awards parade.
I arrived 9:30 Saturday morning after a four-hour trip from Long Island. My Cosworth Vega was a Showfield entry Sat & Sun. Stayed over in Harrisburg Sat. night and left Sunday after the Awards Parade.
Next year's weekend is June 20-22, 2014.
