Biggest Carlisle Ford Nationals Ever …
Over the sound system here at the Carlisle Ford Nationals the promoters were announcing a record crowd here for the event. It was the kind of day you dream of for a car show. Our photo-journalist, Bob Boberg, was on hand to capture photos and video of the event. He said the entire main showfield today was all Mustangs and that they were spilling over into some of the other designated areas.
Bob took some video here at the Carlisle Ford Nationals for 2014. Take a look at what was happening here in Carlisle, PA.
The three-day Carlisle Ford Nationals will run through Sunday. In their promotional material Carlisle Events says the Carlisle Ford Nationals is “the largest and most thrilling all-Ford car show in the world”
Indoor displays include concept cars, customs and historically-significant cars and trucks. Carlisle Events, the promoter of the show, put on an Auto Cross course, test drives given by Ford Motor Company, and a burnout competition. There is an enourmous swap meet and a Manufacturer’s Showcase where aftermarket vendors are selling interesting lines of products. We really liked watching the dyno testing area.
Stay tuned to this page where we’ll try to post photos of the special displays to honor 50 years of Mustangs as the Carlisle Ford Nationals celebrates the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary. Ford is also celebrating its 110th Anniversary this year. We might even get you some video of the special 50th Edition 2015 Mustang GT. This car is so prized that it has its own bodyguards.
Here are some still shots of the cars we saw earlier:
It got a lot hotter around 2 o’clock when the Carlisle Ford Nationals Burnout Contest got underway. This 1979 Ford F-250 is a perennial contender here at Carlisle in the Burnout Contest. He won again today. This was the best burnout ever!
