America’s Automotive Hometown Gears Up for Fall Carlisle
Wednesday, August 27, 2008
CARLISLE, PA – The Fall Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet and Corral is entering its 35th year as one of the world’s largest automotive events of its kind. Held October 1-5 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, Fall Carlisle includes approximately 6,500 vendors, over 2,000 vehicles for sale and more than 90,000 attendees. It is no wonder that Carlisle, PA has been named “America’s Automotive Hometown.”
Fall Carlisle has become more than a destination for automotive enthusiasts and collector car hobbyists; many people have made this a family getaway. Fall Carlisle not only contains the best opportunity to find every part imaginable for your collector car but also includes the food, atmosphere and activities that extend to the whole family.
Fall Carlisle is the traditional wind-down event for the east coast car show season. With all 82-acres of the Carlisle Fairgrounds filled with vendor spaces that stock original, NOS and reproduction parts, accessories, automotive literature, memorabilia and more, there is a lot of ground to cover. That includes the world-famous Carlisle Car Corral, where 1,800 rotating collector cars and trucks of all eras, conditions and prices will be available for sale.
The third annual Fall Carlisle Auction will run simultaneously to the event on the evening of Friday, October 3rd and Saturday, October 4th at the Carlisle Expo Center outside Gate 3. The Carlisle Auction business is setting new standards as a leader in the collector car market. From the quality selection process to the recent announcement to waive consignment fees, Carlisle Auctions is known for connecting customers with the cars.
Admission is $9 daily Wednesday through Saturday and $5 on Sunday, or come all five days for only $30.
