GM Nationals at Carlisle Pa. June 22nd to 24th.

I hope that we can get a better turn out for this great event than we have in the past. See you on the field in Carlisle Pa.

Once again, why should we give a [email protected] about GM anymore?

Zinder,
I'm kind of new to all this. Can you tell me more about the GM Nationals and why I would want to attend?

Thanks,
John

It is just another way for Sky and Soltice owners to get together and swap stories and ideas. Just google GM Nationals at Carlisle and you will get all the info you need, hope to see you there.

The GM Nationals is not a GM event.

Carlisle puts on various car shows throughout the year focusing on a variety of themes including the All-Ford Nationals, All-Chrysler Nationals, [email protected], Kit Car show... truck only show... tuner show (Performance & Style)... and a couple all makes shows with swap meets.

The show is more of a place where thousands of car owners get together, show of their cars and admire other cars... it is just focused on GM cars.

Pontiac clubs attend in high numbers... and they too were shafted by GM... but look at this as an event to gather with a LARGE group of other Pontiac owners. A GTO club had the highest turn out in 2011, with a Fiero club being number 3. This is the perfect place for Saturn owners to meet up as well.

I love the parades they do from the fairgrounds to downtown... they do it for the Corvette show most... but have for the Performance & Style as well... and sometimes for the others.

And the last couple of years it was scheduled during the Kappa Nationals and the Summer Solstice in June. Guess for those who are local not going to NASSM 2012 it would be a fun event.

How can they possibly get a large KAPPA participation going up against NASSM?
That's crazy!

When you turn your car on, does it return the favour?
How can you expect me to stay grounded when I always drive in the SKY. . . on the Redline....

The GM Nationals at Carlisle have been scheduled on this weekend for at least the last fifteen yrs. and since it is not sponsered by GM, I can't believe they would be so selfish
that they would schedule the Kappa Nationals on th same weekend.

I try to attend every event that i can and it is plain stupid to schedule events on the same weekend, enough said.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if NASSM is always done at the Summer Solstice....this couldn't be the first time there has been a conflict?

Nope... not the first time.

That is why the Fieros, GTOs, Camaros, Corvettes... probably even GEOs... outnumber the Kappas in attendance.

If people don't step forward some year to host the Kappa nationals in their neck of the woods... Carlisle would be a perfect choice.

My point is this, look at what is going on in the surrounding areas. Carlisle has been going on for a long time, when did the Nationals start, 2009? Schedule the Nationals a couple of weeks before or after. I appreciate all the work that goes into the planning for these events and would never put down anyone for their efforts, but all we have to do is register at Carlisle and make hotel reservations. They do all the work.

Last year I went to the GM Nationals @ Carlisle due to the Nationals was further than I wanted to drive...

This year the Nationals are in NC

I wish the NASSM and the GM Nationals were 2 weeks apart so I could make both
