Sorry for the late information on the event. We’ve
been busy preparing, but not communicating enough.
The Forward Look tent will be in Row ID, #52-53. This
is about 300 feet east of the grandstand stage, where they have the giveaway
cars. (East is towards Gate 2). We will be with the 1957-59 cars
again this year. It’s a great hangout and relaxation place after
walking the swap meet or show field. As usual, we will have refreshments,
snacks, and first aid supplies like sunscreen. (It always helps if folks
bring folding chairs though!) We have also invited the Golden Fin Society,
59Plymouth.net, Christine Car Club and Plymouth Central folks to share our
tent, as we all have common interests. Look for the big Forward Look
banner and the “Flookerang Pennants” ringing the tent.
“Christine” will be featured in Building T,
along with a special showing of the movie on one of the nights. This car
is the “Camaro chase car”, and is now owned by Bill Gibson of Florida. It was
formerly owned by Jim & Derek Garvie.
In addition to the Carlisle
events, we will also be having our traditional Forward Look events:
Join up with other ForwardLookers at the MoPar Rebellion Car
Club Car Cruise. Note that it has moved to a new location this year --
the new Residence Inn., 1164 Harrisburg Pike, Carlisle, PA. More
information on this event can be seen at http://www.moparrebellion.com/docs/KOC2007.doc
Something of a tradition, many of enjoy an evening dinner at
Hoss’s Steak and Sea House on Carlisle Pike. Good food, and (my
favorite) an all-you-can eat dessert/ice cream bar.
Please join us for our famous Forward Look dinner!
Dinner, drinks, and a relaxing wrap-up to a busy day. We generally have
around 30 folks from the mailing list and forums gathering to just relax, have
a picnic dinner and talk. It’s always nice to finally put faces
with the names of the folks you have known online for years. The talk at
the tent goes on long into the night, so stop by even if you can’t make
the dinner. Bring your photos!
information and schedule for the event is available in this PDF: http://www.carsatcarlisle.com/pdf/2007_Chrysler_Schedule_Map_Vendors.pdf
for the 2007 edition of the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals is in high gear!

will be on hand to sign autographs all three days and he will fire up Swamp
Rat's big Hemi several times throughout the weekend. Don will also join us at
South Mountain Dragway on Friday evening for an additional public appearance.
would a Wing Car Reunion be without the car that started it all? That's right,
we've added the 1969 Charger 500 to the Wing Car Reunion. If you have a '69
Charger 500 you can display your ride with the rest of the Aero Cars! If you
own a '69 Charger 500, '69 Charger Daytona or a '70 SuperBird you can register
to be a part of what is shaping up to be the largest gathering ever of these
certainly didn't forget about the Convertible Reunion! If you like your Mopars
topless then this is your year. This is open to all years and makes of Chrysler
products and if the early registrations are any indication then this display
may just blow you away. We have convertibles from Virgil Exner's finned designs
to some of the newest and everything in between. We'll even have a convertible
that Chrysler never built but should have! Hit the TOP LIFT switch and head to Carlisle in July!
your favorite Mopars were built before the musclecar era then you'll want to
check out the DeSoto display. Every year we get quite a few DeSotos on the show
field and many of those are from members of the National DeSoto
Club. Be here in July to see some stunning DeSotos or to
show off your own.

atmosphere, good food, ice cream, DJ, door prizes and more. Admission to the
Kick-Off is FREE to all participants and spectators.
