I play hooky twice a year to go to Spring and Fall Carlisle. The place never ceases to amaze me. Even if I don't buy anything, it's therapeutic to just walk around 150 acres of awesome cars and shitty half-finished projects and crates and crates and crates of other gearheads' castoff junk. Here are some things I shot pics of today that I thought the commentariat might enjoy. You will notice there aren't lots of OMG A CHEVELLE SS AND A MUSTANG AND A CAMARO... I tried to get stuff that was a little more unusual, and, well, more Jalop. Hope you all enjoy...
This was awesome. It was, like Nice Price AND Crack Pipe from the same seller.
This Camaro was unique in that it was a straight 6 with a 3-speed manual.
Looking for 409 valve covers? What flavor, orange or chrome?
If minibikes are your kink, there was plenty to satisfy you today...
This struck me as particularly Jalop. For $3650, I thought it was NP.
'59 Biscayne. The possibilities are endless.
Rat rod Buick beach wagon...
Apparently, this guy wanted $4500 for what amounted to a Cuda VIN tag.
I REALLY wanted to give this a new home. It's so pretty.
Hmmm. Ugly but interesting.
The seller wanted every bit of $14,500 for this Nomad and was not willing to back down. PCH? NPOCP?
This, on the other hand, was a wagon I could get behind. (No, Wert. Not like that, you silly boy.)
I was thrilled at the thought of getting these two in the same shot. Amazingly, they were asking only $7500 for the Caddy, but $11,500 for the Buick.
I gotta admit, though, the Bu was freaking BADASS.
And if you like Mopar-flavored tuna boats, they had something for you too.
My favorite style of pimp.
A little economical AMC love.
No words for this one...
Just gonna throw the rest out there for your perusal.
If you've been to Carlisle, you know this barely scratches the surface...
