Anybody going to Spring Carlisle April 20 - 24? I’m going to try and make it for a day. The Fall event was great....I scored an original set of correct stock 396 chrome valve covers “with drippers” for $60!!! They will look great on my ‘67 L78 engine build.

Always a fun time!

If it wasn't an 11 hour drive , I would go for one day. :unsure:
Good thing you don't have an electric, that time would double.

If you leave a day early it's only two days of 6 hours. :)

I could probably swing it this year, would be fun to just walk around.
Yes, I take my little utility wagon with sides for keeping my goodies & sitting a bit when eating a sausage sandwich!

Just spent the past 4 days at the local meet. It's on the roadcourse at PIR, 2.5 mile track with the infield packed also. Takes 2 days to really see it all. It also borders the Expo center, which is a seperate event but at the same time. Pedal bikes, golf carts and personal mobility devices are allowed at the track, so we bought these. Couldn't do it without them. With the slow side to side walking, my hips ache after the first day. I can pull a wagon, or I've been known to strap a hand truck on the rear. Sold a couple grand of tax free parts and the shelves are a bit thinner now. Also picked up a rear bumper and tailgate for my '67 elky for $70. Almost have all the missing pieces now. I'd travel a couple hundred miles for a swap meet the size of Carlisle, but it's a bit further than that. Great people, great fun, lots of REAL folks.

The bikes claim to travel 12 miles on a charge, but I'm thinking half that maybe a bit more. They're really perfect for this type of swap meet.

Add a tray/battery under the seat and wire it in. It will lengthen your travel.

That Jetson is pretty cool. I've thought of getting something instead of walking...good exercize but my legs and feet aren't what they used to be! Ha! I haven't been to the Hershey Fall meet for awhile, but one of those would REALLY help there! If you've never been it needs to be on your bucket list! I miss Florida, but it's really sweet living between Hershey & Carlsile in PA!

I hope some of you made it, as I couldn't go. I will plan on Fall Carlisle, as the weather is usually way better. It sucked last week until this weekend, and my allergies were on a rampage so I stayed inside! It's been a rough Spring.
