Fall Carlisle Swap Meet Photos: Dude!! The Cool Just Continues! Look At This Rad Stuff From Carlisle Now!

As if Grippo’s photos from the AACA Hershey Fall Meet aren’t enough, he also went to Carlisle and shot photos to share with all of you! So big thanks to our man Joe, who has been contributing to us for years now and we so appreciate it. Here are more photos, and a link to any you might have missed already!

(Words and Photos by Joe Grippo) October has arrived and that means one thing….no, not pumpkin spice, or Halloween, it’s Swap Meet season, and here at the Pennsylvania BangShift satellite offices, the two biggies are the Fall Carlisle and the massive AACA Hershey Fall Meet. Carlisle is up first followed by Hershey the following week, so if you can’t find it in central Pa over those two weeks, it probably doesn’t exist.

The Fall Carlisle Swap Meet tends to skew more toward the 50’s, 60’s and muscle car era but with a healthy and growing trend of late 70’s and 80’s cars and parts starting to filter into the vast number of swap spaces. Lots of the usual suspect parts and project cars are available, ya’ know, Camaros, Mustangs, Chevelle’s, Barracudas, Corvettes, Challengers, and the like. I dig checking out the project cars and odd ball parts that always seem present at Carlisle. Unfortunately, in the last few years I also find myself marveling at the prices of stuff being offered up. I can’t help but to wonder where we as a hobby are heading, with really rusty cars with really high asking prices. The barrier of entry for some of these things are cost prohibitive when compared to the cost of getting them even remotely roadworthy. But, hey, sometimes cost and value just get tossed aside if you just must have that particular ride. Watch those emotional purchases.
