Ford Carlisle 2020
« on: August 02, 2020, 02:16:22 PM »
A number of us from Virginia made the annual trek to Ford Carlisle (albeit a couple of months late....). The number of vendors was down some, but the event was still very well attended, lots of people in the swap area (particularly Friday) and the show area was packed on Saturday. Not a huge number of early Shelbys, but still a number of them (including Jim Walsh's green 66, and Bill Collins inventory in the swap area, as well as a later blue Tiger). Ran into a bunch of the Shelby guys there too. See the below link to my photos:

I really wanted to attend as well this year. Flights loads are increasing and with all the VLAs I had to work. Perhaps next year...

Very nice collection of photos.  I've been unable to attend for a few years for varying reasons.  Thanks for sharing!  Very cool.

Guess I missed you this year Dave - seems like we always bump into each other in the swap meet area.

Thanks for the picks!

The Pepsi '69 Bud Moore Mustang was my favorite. Had not seen that one before.

If that word on the side of the red '61-ish Ford Galaxie is suppose to be "Incredible, then it's spelled wrong ???

Yeah... that is a bit confusing  ??? - is there more to the story?

There is a picture of the car on a trailer prior to restoration.  Appears to have the same spelling.

I thought so too, but the history posted with the car indicated the original sign painter (in 1961) did it on purpose- it's the old English spelling.

Phillip- I'm sorry I missed you, didn't spend much time at my space, missed a few others that were there as well. I'm just going to have to make a run up your way soon and have a look at your XR-7G...

Glad you guys enjoyed the photos, I haven't taken many there in the last few years, but I had a little more time this go around. Thanks!
