Just a week after finally staging the Spring Carlisle show and swap meet, Carlisle Events was back at it June 26-27 with its annual Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals. More than 700 cars turned out for the event, which featured special displays on the Nova, Monte Carlo, GM vehicles of the 1970s and the LS6 454 engine.
A new feature was the “rolling exhaust” contest, featuring a dozen cars driving past a reviewing stand filled with members of the Capital City G8 Club, who were asked to pick the car with not the loudest but the “best sounding” exhaust note. The winners were Rachel Lynch and her 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Also new to the show was Courtney Hansen, popular automotive television host who not only signed autographs, but was spotted doing some shopping in the automotive flea market.
The event also marked the start of a fund-raising effort for United Way and Project Share.
Although it won’t take place until June 25-26, 2021, plans already are underway for the next Chevrolet Nationals, which will feature the Carlisle Comic Car Con, spotlight on GM-themed TV and movie cars, and the 50th anniversary of the Chevrolet Vega.
Next up at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania are the Chrysler Nationals, scheduled for July 10-12, and the Ford Nationals, July 31-August 2.
