I've been going every year since 1985. My favorite 3 days of the summer. We stay at the same motel in Carlisle every year. No special plans other than catching up with friends and enjoying the Vettes and vendors. The Cars for sale Coral is always interesting. I've done the parade a couple of times. It's fun if you've never done it but it's kind of an organized traffic jam. It's pretty cool that the residents of Carlisle line the parade route and cheer for the Corvettes. Nice party in the downtown area where the parade ends. I have a 1,000 round trip drive which I enjoy. Driving down in the C6 or C7 Z. Looking forward to it

I’m looking forward to the shopping spree also Bruno06, I love buying my mistresses presents & the wife doesn’t even get jealous!

For those that haven’t gone, it’s really something to see a whole town taken over by a model of a car. Nothing but Vettes from Friday to Sunday, 50,000+ of them! There’s has to be more people going from the forum, where are you guys?

This is not my first time to Carlisle, but my first time to Corvettes at Carlisle. I'm only going to be there on Saturday. Not sure what to expect yet. Haven't decided if I should register for the show or just park and wander around. Bringing the Corvette, either way.

This is just out of pure curiosity, are there vendors there like Corvette mods, Maryland speed, and numerous others who basically screwed they're entire customer base? They've been banned from the forum for a reason do you think they have the ***** to set up a tent their?

Maryland Speed and Corvette Mods are not listed among the Vendors that will be attending. I don't recall ever seeing them there. Some of the more reputable vendors that we are familiar with are there..

I've been going for years. Staying in Carlisle. Looking for excuses to spend money but disappointed that over the years the vendors don't bring much with them anymore. Also most of them have only current model C7 stuff. Don't wanna park on the hill but I'm not a morning person. We should have some sort of ID for the dash or windshield to show we're forum members with our user name on it. Be nice to say hello in person!

It would be cool if there was a Corvette Forums Coral or designated section that we could have!

1 more week!

I will also be in the flag display, with my Supersonic Blue 2012. I was in the blue part of the flag in 2015 with my 68 - sold last year. Should be a lot of 68s around this year because it is the 50th anniversary of that model year.

Staying in Chambersburg PA so we are having dinner at the Copper Kettle Friday night.

My 68 convertible (top down), with me and my wife at the front, 3rd row from the top, first car on the left.
