Save the Date for Spring Carlisle

Cold weather be gone! Spring (the season) officially starts on March 20 and Spring (Carlisle) isn’t long after, starting April 22. Cruise to Carlisle for a five-day celebration of all things automotive. The event draws nearly 100,000 guests for the first big shot in most cases at picking up those hard to find automotive pieces and parts, merchandise, collectibles, memorabilia and more. Plus, there are classic and project cars available at every turn.

If picking up a completed classic is more your speed, consider the neighboring collector car auction presented by Carlisle Auctions. Over 300 consignments are available to the highest bidder. Could that be you? You don’t have to go far to have fun and you don’t have to haggle a salesman for that special car you desire. Come to Carlisle for the thrill of the hunt, the camaraderie and the food. Call 717-243-7855 for all of the information.
