is anyone going to carlisle pa with any t parts for sale
Waste of time, plus you have to pay!
usually go to hershey but every few years we throw carlisle in and when I find t parts they are usually priced much better than hershey
Please don't go to Carlisle looking for T parts. Many of the vendors will show up at Hershey the next week. and you can buy them there. There aren't many T vendors but there are those instances where you may find those rare things like a perfect low head,early champion X plugs, a pair of 3 digit 1915 PA plates, a Johns-Manville Ford special speedometer with 9000 miles on it. Oh, I almost forgot the 15 coil box complete with switch, switch plate and four brass top coils for $100.
I like the fact that a lot of the smaller vendors do not set up at Hershey, and quite often they don't know what the have. I have made some friends there that I see every year, and they are Hershey vendors also. This saves me some time when I am at Hershey the next week because I know what they have, and can better spend my time going thru other piles of junk I have never seen before.
I am speaking only about fall Carlisle. For a T man--or woman, Spring Carlisle is a waste of time.---Len
I concur. Especially if it's just parts you're after. Hershey would be the place to go. Carlisle, from my experiences, is a muscle car show.
Hershey is the best of the 2 shows Carlisle has nothing but chinese tools modern toys and junk. Hardly any car parts.Now they are selling RV's and boats on the field. Lots of empty spaces for parking also. Last year they close part of the North Field no vendors.
thank you to everyone who said carlisle was a waste of time and didnt go this allowed me to fill my cart 3 times in 2 days the prices were better than the last 2 years I went to hershey
every 3rd year I go to Carlisle instead of Hershey and it always works out well sometimes it is good to try something different
Carlisle is becoming a place not to go to in general. Now the cars are generally priced 20 to 30% more than the going values. And a lot of late 70's to early 90's stuff. A Granada for 8 grand? Please.
When ebay took off, a lot of vendors got pissy because they wanted 2 to 3 times what you could get an NOS part on ebay for. Sorry, but supply and demand says if you want more than everyone else does for your stuff, you will be keeping it. Most of them left and aren't coming back.
The ones that are there now still want stupid money for parts.
Large companies like Carpenter don't even bring parts to sell. Just catalogues.
I have been going to Carlisle since 1980. It used to be a good show. Now you can see the drop in attendance. Not the crowds there used to be. Once every couple years is all I do now.
Most of my stuff now is pre 1965 and not muscle. Maybe Hershey next time is the place to go.
