Photo Gallery of Fall Carlisle 2009

Fall Carlisle 2009

For Collector Car enthusiasts, late September often means planning a trip to Carlisle, Pennsylvania for the annual Fall Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet and Car Corral. This was the 35th year the meet was held. The weather was nearly perfect with lots of sun and almost no rain. Hundreds of venders selling everything automotive related. Hundreds of interesting collector cars were for sale in the Car Corral and thousands of attendees enjoyed the weekend.

The center of attraction was the GM Futurliner #10. This amazing piece of automotive history was once part of the Parade of Progress which toured North America during the 1940’s and 1950’s. Stay tuned for features on this Futurliner and several other very interesting cars at the show.

During the four days that I attended the meet, I took hundreds of photos. We have prepared a gallery of well over 100 photos that we think are a good representation of Fall Carlisle 2009. I hope you enjoy looking at them. If you have never attended a Carlisle Meet, maybe these photos will make you plan to attend one of the Carlisle shows next year. Enjoy !

Report On Fall Carlisle 2009

First and foremost we had a good time and the weather was pretty nice. The event seemed to be somewhat sparsely attended by both vendors and shoppers compared to past years. The Car Corral had a lot of collector cars for sale including some nice street rods but the spaces on the steepest part of the hill did not have any cars on them, which probably meant they did not sell. Can’t really blame people for not wanting to park their really nice cars there.

The GM Futurliner

American Dream Cars is officially at the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet & Corral. One of the first things that caught our eyes was the very rare GM Futurliner. Only 12 were built and only nine Futurliners are known to exist, five of which are in total disrepair. Photographed below is Futurliner No. 10 restored to its original condition by Don Mayton. Enjoy and stay tuned for more posts from the Fall Carlisle show.

What’s New at American Dream Cars

Welcome to the first post of the American Dream Cars collector car blog. We plan to write about topics effecting the collector car hobby, the American auto industry, and news about the American Dream Cars website. With all the things that have happened to the American auto industry in the last year we should have lots to write about.

The American Dream Cars website has had an upgrade or maybe we should call it a resto-mod restoration. This blog is part of it. We have also made it easier to submit your car ads, update your car ads, and delete your car ads right from the home page. In addition we have added a new section that has photos of some of the nice looking and interesting collector cars that have been advertised and sold on our site over the years. We call it Collector Car Photos and you can see it by Clicking Here. There is also a link to this new section from the American Dream Cars Home Page.
