Jalopnik Is At The Giant Carlisle Import Car Show, Come Hang Out

Illustration for article titled Jalopnik Is At The Giant Carlisle Import Car Show, Come Hang Out

Prepare yourselves, People of the Carlisle Import and Performance Car Nationals, Jalopnik is coming and we’re bringing a Lexus IS300 Sportcross of extreme cleanliness. If you’re here, come hang out.


Carlisle is like the epicenter of car shows in the Northeast. Pennsylvania is northeast? Sure. It was the West, but that was a long time ago.

I’m getting distracted. Carlisle plays host to the top Corvette show in the universe, as well as huge gatherings for Mopars and, apparently a ton of old French cars and other weirdos this weekend.


The moment we realized we had a chance to see a Renault 17TS, we packed our shit and headed west in Ballaban’s recently-waxed 2JZ Lexus wagon.

While we’re there we’re gonna see how Ballaban’s IS does in a Lexus concours event. (He will lose. No gold badges.)

The event is today out in Carlisle, PA. Come through, we’ve got stickers.

First off, you need to give us more warning. But second, did you guys look at the weather before you decided to go this year? The number of cars is always way down when it’s wet, and this year has been wetter than usual...
