2017–Carlisle National Ford Meet

This was my first time at this annual event in Pennsylvania.  I had hoped to attend last year but my schedule was just too full.  So after a drive north in the P71 we entered through gate 3 and onto the fair grounds where this is held. 

Acres of Fords awaited us.

We parked in a section reserved for factory modified and police cars.  Here were three examples of the 5.0 Mustangs that were used by many of state troopers back in the late 1980’s especially for high speed pursuit.

There were three examples.  One Georgia state patrol, one Florida, and one from the California Highway Patrol.

We parked the P71 and then explored the fair grounds.  There was a section of cars for sale.

Then there were the rows and rows of parts and pieces for sale.  The variety was exceptional.

Looking for those hard-to-find pieces?  Probably they were here.

How about fiberglass parts for that rusted out Bronco?

As we walked the field it often appeared to be a Mustang meet.

We had a fun two days not only to see all the many different Ford cars represented, but we had a chance to talk to the many owners and enthusiasts that were there.  Every brand has its following and the Ford crowd has their national meet in Carlisle, PA!

    Awesome, awesome, awesome pictures. Reminds me of Good Will where you go in and clothes are sorted by color and you have to see if any of it is in your size. 🙂
