Click here: Cars at Carlisle - 2005 Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals - July 
8-10 
Hi Guys and Gals,

         The Carlisle All Chrysler Cars National Car Show and Vendors Event 
is only 2 weeks away. Several guys who just missed the last show now have their 
Furys finished and will attend this show. A few days ago I talked with Lisa 
Leatherly the coordinator for the Carlisle Shows and she said she needed a head 
count on how many Furys would be attending the show. To get the big private 
tent that is for the Fury owner only, we must have so many cars and we need to 
give her a number. Remember to tell them you are with the "GOLDEN FIN SOCIETY" 
when you register so we have a head count towards getting a private tent for 
us to socialize under.
           Please just take a moment to click reply on this E mail and let me 
know if you will be at the Carlisle Chrysler National show and have already 
registered or if you are registering the day of the show or cannot make it 
because of other plans?      (Thanks)

Jack Lewis wrote me that he is going to try and get to both shows Carlisle 
and the mid west show.  Want to get excited???? Read the first paragraph in the 
Official Carlisle Press Release below with photo of Furys at the bottom.

Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals breaks record for attendance, show cars     
07/14/2004  
Best all-Mopar event around, July 9-11

CARLISLE, Pa. ? The 14th annual Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals brought a 
record 46,474 Mopar enthusiasts to the Carlisle (Pa.) Fairgrounds July 9-11. A 
record 2,132 vehicles participated in the show field, and 1,448 vendors offered 
all sorts of Mopar items.

Mary Burch of Mechanicsville, Md., won the 1964 Dodge 440 giveaway car with 
only 10,103 original miles on it. She came to the show with her husband Norman 
as well as other family members in search of parts for the cars Norman is 
working on. Mary said the family comes to the All-Chrysler Nationals every year 
and always stays at the show until the giveaway winner is announced on Sunday 
afternoon, and this time it paid off! 

In the Standard of Mopar Excellence (SME) competition, John Garnett?s 1967 
GTX and Jerry Hubble?s 1970 Charger R/T SE scored the most points with 96.75 
points each. Tony Puig from Mountainview, Calif., won the Most Miles Traveled 
award for driving 3,250 miles in his 2005 Dodge Magnum. In the Club Challenge, 
the Northeast Hemi Owners Association won with 136 members at the show; in 
second, the Mopar Mailing List brought 61 participants; and the Mopar Madness 
club 
had 39 members to come in third. 

New this year, Carlisle Events sponsored a benefit auction with all proceeds 
going to The Salvation Army. The auction raised about $28,500 for the local 
Salvation Army, which will help immensely in the many programs The Salvation 
Army does for the community. 

At South Mountain Dragway, Carroll Morris won the Super Pro class in his 
Mopar with an ET of 6.61 at 98.3 mph. Morris also won the King of the Hill title 

with an ET of 6.63 at 102.8 mph. Rick Miller?s Mopar pickup took the Heavy 
class with an ET of 6.99 at 97.3 mph. In the Trophy class, Walt Haas Jr. won 
with 
an 8.46 ET at 76.1 mph in his 1970 Duster. In the Max Wedge Challenge, Tom 
Shirey took first in his 1964 Plymouth with an ET of 7.48 at 91.1 mph. 

Back at the Fairgrounds, attendees test drove new DaimlerChrysler products. 
DaimlerChrysler reported that more than 6,000 test drives were taken in the 16 
test vehicles. The two most popular vehicles were the Dodge Magnum and 
Chrysler Crossfire. Saturday evening, Alan Spurgin of Carlisle, Pa., won the 
Burnout 
Competition with his 1970 Charger. In second place was Chuck Oliver from 
Bethpage, N.Y., with his 1983 Dodge Mirada. Jill Hager of Dublin, Ohio, won the 
title of Ms. Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals in the beauty contest.

Buddy Baker, famous NASCAR racer and commentator, met fans and signed 
autographs. Baker?s original NASCAR No. 6 Dodge, on loan from the Darlington 
Raceway 
Museum, was on display as well. Baker spent 34 years in the Winston Cup 
circuit, and (as his nickname ?Leadfoot? suggests) is considered the fastest of 
all 
drivers. 

The guys from Dodge?s ?That thing got a Hemi?? commercials drew a lot of 
attention at the show. They signed autographs and posed for photos with Hemi 
fans. Also, Carl Cameron, who worked for the Chrysler Corporation in exterior 
and 
interior design, was at the event all weekend, signing autographs and 
presenting a question-and-answer seminar. Cameron helped design the 1966-1967 
Charger, 
1970 Challenger and 1967 Dart line.

The DaimlerChrysler Corporation brought some of the hottest new concept 
vehicles to the event as well. The 2003 Dodge Tomahawk concept motorcycle, 
powered 
by Dodge?s Viper V-10 engine with 500 hp, has a potential theoretical top 
speed of more than 400 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. The Dodge Sling 
Shot has a three-cylinder engine that produces 95 horsepower and can get 45 mpg. 

The Airflite sedan-coupe hybrid is based on a shortened version of the LX 
platform. The Dodge M80 pickup truck sports a 3.7-liter, 210-hp V-6 engine with 
four-wheel drive.  

Other significant cars on display included Steven Juliano?s Dodge Diamante, 
newly restored to its original white pearl paint, and the 1964 Ghia Crown 
Imperial owned by Jan and Anita Witte, which was ordered for Jacqueline Kennedy 
and 
used at the White House prior to John F. Kennedy?s assassination. Some very 
rare and special Dodge DeSotos were displayed, including the 1958 Adventurer ? 
one of only five produced ? and a gas-powered mini 1958 DeSoto Firemite. The 
1971 Hemi Cuda convertible from the TV show ?Nash Bridges? was exhibited as 
well.

The 2005 edition of the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals takes place July 
8-10. To learn more about the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals, visit

Carlisle Events, host of 12 collector car, truck and motorcycle events a 
year, attracted more than half a million people to its events in 2003. Included 
in 
the annual schedule are two huge automotive swap meets and individual 
specialty shows featuring Corvettes, Fords, GMs, Chryslers, trucks, motorcycles, 

sport compacts and imports. Founded in 1974 by friends Bill Miller and Chip 
Miller, the "Cars at Carlisle" shows have attracted automotive enthusiasts from 
around the world.
