Carlisle’s spring automotive swap meet proves popular

Attractions included SEMA product showcase, AACA cars and even an auction


There was a collector car auction, a special display of the hottest new products direct from the virtual SEMA Show — but now they were present to see and touch — and even a showcase presented by the Antique Automobile Club of America. But the big attraction for the Spring Carlisle event was the huge automotive swap meet that is the heart of the annual gathering.

“For five days in April (21-25), the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds became the destination for car lovers to buy, sell and trade all things automotive,” Carlisle Events boasted in its post-event news release.
