Thumbs up

Yes. We started going last year and intend being there in '04 again. We don't enter the truck, though. It would have been hard to considering I just got it in November. We enter one of the Mavericks. If you haven't been there yet, it is a good time and worth attending. Now, if only the weather cooperates this year!

Ford Nationals

I usually go down every year, you might see me on route 15 going south driving a 68 Cougar or this year maybe the new 2000 F-150.

we've been going for the past several years... ford nationals, mopar nationals and of course the all truck nationals

last year if i remember right, the all truck nationals was the first weekend in a string of about 14 that it didn't rain

living about 30 min. from carlisle makes it great with all the stuff that comes in there each year, and each year they all seem to get bigger and bigger

Carlisle All-Ford Nationals - June 4-6
Carlisle All-Truck Nationals - August 6-8

Both are really good shows to go to. I entered my truck last year at the truck nationals just for fun... met a lot of nice people there.

What is the swap meet area like? Looking for a Decent cab for my '40('40 thru 47will fit). I used to live in Sacramento and people talked about the Carlisle shows.

as far as the swap meet goes.... i can ususally spend about 4 hours just walking up the rows, and thats not including the time to stop and look at stuff.... there is sooooo much there (more so at the ford show) as far as "old rusty stuff" goes. i wouldnt be surprised if you could find the cab youre looking for.

I've been there & had a great time. This year I'd like to try getting to the 4x4 show in Bloomsburg, PA instead. Thanks to the obscenely high gas prices I have to pick & choose just 1 show to attend. If the Bloomsburg show is like the show in Lima, OH it is awesome!!!!! Only 4x4's allowed on the grounds, trucks lifted so high I could stand under them! Okay - so I'm 5'2" so that may not be all that impressive but it was to me! LOL! Anyone want to try meeting for that show? If so post in the NY Forum ok? Thanks!

Bloomsburg

cowlady... i havent been to bloomsburg for about 4 years now... im thinkin we might be heading up there this summer... only about an hour or so. i think i spent half the day at the manufacturers rows from what i hear the two are similar... i think lima might be a little bigger... but then i havent been there to be able to compare personally

I like to go to the Ford Carlisle; you can see everything from antiques to Utes.

Carlisle: We're going as spectators, been to Carlisle a lot but this is our first Ford event. Benny Parsons will be there, the new Bronco prototype is there, and they're giving away a 64 1/2 Mustang this year. I searched their website but couldn't find the classes you can enter. Anyone have a list?

Cowlady: Been to the Bloom 4x4 show, too. It's not as good as it was, at least not off-site, because they no longer allow the parade through town. The trucks are impressive though, acres of lifted metal everywhere. And the Tuff Trucks competition is fun to watch. Ex-pen-sive though. (gate fee, food, etc.)
