Thumper: "Car not finished yet" is NOT ACCEPTABLE.  I wondered about bringing my "half" finished chassis last year and you cannot believe the interest in seeing people look at the details that go into a build like we are doing.  Once the body goes on and the paint, all of the hundreds of hours of headaches, scratches, skinned knuckles, burns etc. that you personally experienced to make your build is all covered up and nobody can learn how talented you are.  If at all possible, just come and do the "Meet & Greet" with the members.  ::bounce ::thumbup ::headbang ::LAMBO

I'm in this year for show! But not sure I have enough done to drag her out!

My car is nowhere near finished, and as long as nothing major happens in my life I will be there with mine

That's my home state as well Tallon and I won't be able to make it there this year.  I've never been to one of the Carlisle shows, unfortunately.  I will be there in a year or 2 with my 6-oh when I retire in Carlisle though.  :)

Just got my reservation for Carlisle taken care of.  $35 for the 3-day (make sure that you purchase the Kit-Car Ticket)  pass for two people, $15 for parking truck/trailer, and then they give you a $3.50 discount for early registration.  That lowers the total down to $46.50.  Truck, Car, Trailer, and two people.

You can purchase a 3-day ticket ($35 for 2 people) online at the Carlisle: http://store.carlisleevents.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=23
They will send you a window sticker so you can breeze thru the entrance gates.  Friday is usually light on tire kickers but Saturday is huge.  Sunday.....not much going on.  Even the venders pull up stakes and move on.  It would be nice if they would spice up their program to bring in more people thru Sunday...but we DO LOVE SATURDAY!!!!

Drumseven: I have stayed a couple of times and probably will stay at the Ramada Inn in Mechanicsburg.  It's about 5 miles east of the fairgrounds.  Room approx $75@night.  There are some enroute into Carlisle that look nice but are not major chains.

haha,  you know, only one province in Canada (Quebec) is actually french speaking,  all the rest are primarily english...even though it is our second language and there are several communities that are french strong, if you come to the west coast 80% of the lower mainland are actually Asian making us a visible minority and most people speak Mandarin,Cantonese,Japanese,Korean etc. just thought i would entertain everyone with that...as i also speak French,and some Mandarin and Cantonese...(poorly)

but i believe i too along with Mr Butler will be heading to the show this year,  i am hoping to finally meet RT who has been my original inspiration to "Build a Car".
