Carlisle Chrysler Nationals

1968 Road Runner just like the one Bob owned (and misses to this day)
Bob and I spent last weekend at the Chrysler Nationals Car Show in Carlisle, and it was great.  Bob owned a maroon 1968 Roadrunner back in the day.  He used to race it as well as drive it on the street.  His love of Chrysler cars has continued to this day, so one of the things on his "bucket list" was to go to the Chrysler Nationals.

Here are a few of the many excellent cars that we saw.

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Hemi in Vitamin C
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T rag top - Plum Crazy

1970 Dodge Challenger in Panther Pink - I want it - it matches my top!

1970 Panther Pink Plymouth Barracuda AAR - I want this too!

1950 Chrysler New Yorker
1970 Plymouth Superbird
A whole row of Dodge Charger General Lees - Yee Hah!

1948 Chrysler

Beautiful Chrysler 300 - one of many in the show

1957 Plymouth Fury with every option - even a record player!
1952 Chrysler Imperial 331 Hemi
Two Sheepdogs were at the show - Mirra would have like them.  We left her back at the trailer.
1963 Dodge 426 Max Wedge factory race car

Plum Crazy 1970 Plymouth GTX

1968 Plymouth Road Runner - every option and the premium interior - just gorgeous!

1964 Dodge factory 426 Max Wed judged best in the world 

1969 Dodge Charger - one of 500 made for NASCAR racing

1967 GTX - Best car of the show in Bob's opinion - perfect!
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 383 convertible
We really enjoyed the show, and may go back again some other year.  Bob and I both love old cars, as you can see from our restoration project - a 1993 Cadillac Coupe DeVille - the last year they were made.
