Carlisle PA. Mopar weekend of awesomeness

I see that the clock is ticking on getting ready for the big show at Carlisle again. Less than 50 days till the biggest Mopar only show in the world.
It is on July 13th-15th.

Who is headed there this year?
freight train? What sort of bright red Mopar should I look for?
BHD? Bringing the fire wagon crew cab again I hope?
slateMD? also know as the guy in the viking hat. Are you bringing the grease burning Ford 250 with the blue oval emblems that say "Farty" inside them?

I will be there with my daughter and also my buddy Walter again....We plan to take another HellCat ride as that was more fun than we expected last year.

I am pretty sure T-man is headed down in the brick.
I hope MrFusion makes it even though I haven't seen much of him on the forum lately.
I will have a cold beer [or cold water] for you boys in the show field.

I just checked out your build thread for 20 minutes to refresh my memory on it.
I would love to check that truck out in person.
I will tell you I am loving the rear shackle flip, drop hanger, longer shackles, one less leaf spring and 2 inches less block combo on my '91. It rides WAY better than before.
There are a few pictures of it on my thread - Saving a 91.0...

I will definitely be there. Maybe I will bring a Cuda. Depending on the weather who knows. Maybe my 3rd gen so I can ride with AC. I have already started my list. For those who have never been your definitely missing out. I don't normally look at show cars or trucks but once in a blue moon I see something so unique or rare it draws my attention. Oli if you come across a Lund visor I'm looking for make sure you write down the space number.

T-man,
I just call them, but that is more my style anyway.
I haven't booked my show spot yet either, as we are not really sure what we taking down yet.
Most likely the Vanilla Gorilla our white crew cab or the Gauntlet the 12V RC. Walter might be riding down to the show with us this year so the extra rear seat might be key.

I just was able to purchase the tickets. Had to switch credit cards for some idiotic reason. They both have the exact same information, yet they kept declining me because of their records showing the wrong Billing info.


Oh well. Saturday is our day. Now all I got to do is get my wife's friend to watch the dogs, and I'm golden... or not.

I'm never golden. Usually white, or red. Depending on UV exposure.

You're not taking the dogs? Man! What's wrong with you?

I'm only golden on the weekends.


Most of them anyway

Less that 30 days out...
Looks like we will be heading down in the 12V '89 RC again this year. It is such a nice long trip ride with those '92-'93 bucket seats and custom rear springs.

One of these days, Oliver, like within the next two years, I’m gonna go and meet up with you guys at this Mopar event, all the way from CA. I’ve talked about it with another first gender friend of mine, about taking a road trip, but I think in two years I’ll be ready. I’m gonna take up some of my favorite grub for you all to try- BALUT. I figure if goat meat is being served, why not BALUT? Maybe some Dinuguan, also.

(If you all don’t know what BALUT or DINUGUAN are, google them. I love it!!)
