    So, many of you who go to Carlisle know that this coming year in 2020 Carlisle is NOT celebrating 1970 c-body cars. I emailed Mr. Buczeskie (the event manager) and asked him why. He surprisingly replied back and said this, and I quote......

    "Typically when I do my anniversary displays, I do it based on the first year of a certain model. I don’t typically celebrate each model year – at least not in the buildings. You mentioned 1970 C-Bodies specifically and that is probably my favorite year for C-Bodies. I would certainly love to have a bunch of them at the show but I just won’t have room inside this year due to all of the 50th anniversary displays that you mentioned in your email. I definitely want to celebrate the C-Bodies again but the only way I can do anything next year would be outside. Maybe we can call out to the C-Body community and get a bunch of ‘70s to register??

    If you have any ideas for an outdoor display, please let me know. Regardless, I will continue to plan for a future indoor display of C-Bodies."

    I said/suggested..... If Carlisle were to have a little somethin' somethin' outside specifically for the c-body, I would say feature all c-bodies from 1965 because that was the first year for the c-body platform, to 1971 because it will be 2021. I would also say have a "special section" of 1970 and 1971 models like the Sport Fury GT/S23 and Chrysler 300 in particular. Just a thought. Otherwise really I don't know.

    MIND YOU I DID NOT SEND MY MESSAGE BACK YET, I WANNA SEE WHAT ALL YOU THINK FIRST!!

    So, what do you all think!!???. I'd like to see what you all who go to Carlisle think/say. I could let Mr. Buczeskie know what everyone says if you'd like to.

    EF THAT! Just gathering the cars is a celebration. Stopping at 71 is a punch in the face to 72-78..
    The point is to have a focal point and he missed 1965 to 2015.

    If he usually does something, break the Efing norm and try something unique and do the end of the line , C & B body convertibles.

    Thanks for your input Dave. I suppose you're right. That would definitley be different. Don't get too angry, I didn't even send a message back yet. Ed did too say "Regardless, I will continue to plan for a future indoor display of C-Bodies." I just wanna see what everyone thinks first and get their input

    How about an area for Canadian c-bodies? Show how they got different trim and options like my Monaco that came with Fury lll interior.

    Wagons are always good too. Get a Sport Suburban with a long roof rack, surfboard on top pulling a Chrysler Fury boat. That would be cool.

    I don't love the indoor displays, I think the cars look better in the sun and I like the camaraderie of the C Body crowd hanging out together. Maybe it matters more to others, and I don't mean to minimize the feelings of joy/pride of getting invited into a building display.

    I think we’re better off just to continue as we are. But don’t separate the Imps or 300s to some other area on show field. Keep all the big cars together and meet at Dave’s tent. One day I’ll get my car over there.
