Not sure whether it was that awful run of cold, rainy weather we had
(the last two years or so have been pretty sweet) or eBay that hurt it
the most. It is true that the swap meet part is significantly smaller
than it was 10 years ago. However, you can still find some great stuff
for your Brit cars & VWs there, as well as for other European (and,
recently, Japanese) classics. They've boosted the attendance, in recent
years, with the car show part of it. I expect to see a great bunch of
Spridgets and their owners attending this year's event.
I'll be hanging out with my buddies from the Western PA Triumph Assn.
We've got 3 vendor spaces in row C (as I recall), but I can't remember
the numbers. Anyhow, the club always has a banner hung up, somewhere.
So, if you see it (the WPTA banner), stop by and have a beer with me/us.
Not sure if I'm bringing the Midget, or not. I need to have my truck
there, but I really don't want to trailer the Midget anywhere. My
youngest son might bring the truck, freeing me to drive the Midget out.

Hi Bud and all,
I use to attend every Import Carlisle up until the last few years. I
kept on noticing that it was getting smaller and smaller as far as the
swap meet part of it went. I had a great time going to Carlisle. You
never knew what you were gonna find!
Is it still suffering because of ebay?
