Carlisle Events concluded its 44th year of automotive gatherings in Pennsylvania late last month with its annual Fall Carlisle weekend. The event drew more than 8,000 swap-meet vendors and also featured a car corral and auction, as well as a vendor party featuring barbecue and crab.

There were special displays of bar-found and survivor cars. Among the time-capsule vehicles were a 1970s-era Ford Bronco, 1950s Hudson Hornet, and ’60s Dodge Charger

The auction did $5.5 million in sales, a record for the autumn sale, topped by a 2006 Ford GT that sold for $296,390, a 1968 Shelby GT350 Ford Mustang for $94,160, a 2003 Shelby Cobra for $85,600, a 1956 Lincoln Premier for $73,830 and a 1956 Pontiac Starfire for $71,690 (prices include buyer’s fees).

Although its Pennsylvania season has ended, Carlisle Events’ schedule continues with its Fall Florida AutoFest, November 10-12 at Lakeland, Florida.
