Coop,
That is very noble of you but I don't think we will have any actual problems staying together.  Us veterans of Carlisle are seeing something different and are just venting.  I think the other guys with "kit" cars will understand us wanting to be together and help us work it out.  It would be a good idea if we all had a close idea of how many Lambos will be there so we can speak with some authority on how much room we need.

BTW, I appreciate the comments people are making about my showing up with a finished build.  But I am just another builder who finally made the 3% group.  More builders will be there soon.  I am happy as can be that I did finally finish and want to share my accomplishment with all the other builders but don't really think, or expect, I should get any special attention.
Let's hope for nice weather for the show weekend.

I'll just pull in early with my truck and trailer and block a whole area we need and say I'm not moving until you guys unscrew yourselves and make sure we're together. They won't like that. But maybe it'll keep us together.

If that map is true and the "KIT CARS" (oh how I hate that term) are in that single lane of yellow, they didn't expect the Lambo turnout this year.  We will have to "invade" the blue "KITS: SPEEDSTER" area.  There is always the yellow area we used to be located that is now marked "Non make specific".  The worst that can happen is we get chase around until they allow us to park.

Yeah, my "in progress" car won't be all pretty, but everyone says they want to see the fumes car, so I'm bringing it.

There's a dedicated car corral for sales, who knows what be in there.

Thanks,
Coop

I saw that but why would they put us at center stage after removing our name from the show?  and where did they place the "Performance Cars", GM, Ford, & Chrysler?  no where to be found.  I think that they are staging the layout for the Velocity Channel. (They probably heard that RT is coming  ::bounce ::headbang :drool).  Who knows, maybe Dinner will show up also. ::bounce ::headbang   Verrrry intelesting....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  The stage is set, the crowds are making a lot of noise in the great anticipation of the coming debut.   Ooooooooooooooh, woooooooooooooooooooooow!!

If I'm not mistaken... we are here.  In the middle where it says MIDWAY and Kit Cars, right under it.  Next to Grand Stand and Seminars.  We're in the middle of all the things to do.

Thanks,
Coop

This is sounding GOOD!
I have about a two hour drive and hope to leave home around 6 AM.  I have all the required stickers to do a "gate and go" so I am ready.  If you can, save me a spot with all the other Lambos, I don't want to be parked next to a VW something-or-other.
See you at Carlisle on Saturday!

Will do, what area are we suppose to be in again.  If I recall the trailer parking was just behind it.

BTW my 21 year old son is joining me so by the time he gets up you may be parked before me.

That would be awesome if we could get a big line up going.  Make a nice pic to rival the one from back in the day.   ::thumbup

I plan to drive My red Diablo up on Saturday from Virginia if the weather holds.  looks like a beautiful day from the forecast so far.   Last year was thunderstorms and I don't drive it in bad weather.

Hey Guys,  Quick question about Carlisle.  I was thinking about selling my Diablo SE 30 replica again and thought about taking it to Carlisle but want your guys opinion.  Is there serious buyers at the show or is it not worth my time and effort to take it there.  I think once a serious buyer actually looks at the car and realize its current state they would buy it for the amount I am willing to take for it.  I been to Carlisle for other shows but never made it to the replica/kit car show.  Please, let me know your thoughts on the matter?  Thanks John

If you want to sell a car at Carlisle, they have a "Corral" section for cars for sale.  You will have to place it in that section along with every other car for sale.  I have seen kits and replicas there but don't know if any found buyers there.  Look on their website for info.
