The Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals: New Look – New Name – Same Excitement!
Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals 2010: May 21-23 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds
Wednesday, January 27, 2010
The Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals, a unique and exciting automotive festival that showcases over 1,200 classic and high-performance vehicles on the 102-acre Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, has a new name and a new look for 2010. The new name, The Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals, formerly known as the Import-Kit/Replicar Nationals, was changed to simplify the first impression of what the must-see automotive event is: one of the largest gatherings of classic, special interest and collector imported vehicles in the United States. The world’s largest Kit-Replicar gathering can also be found on the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds that same weekend, showcasing amazing hand assembled kit automobiles and reproduction vehicles, based on the rarest and most collectible models.
Ed Buczeskie, Import & Kit Nationals Event Manager, is excited about the direction the event is going and the growth that he expects in 2010 and beyond. “This is one of the few events in the country that really celebrates the diversity of Import cars. All countries are represented, the cars are both old and new, some are geared toward performance, while others are content just glistening in the sun enjoying a fresh coat of wax.” Buczeskie continued: “We expect to grow all aspects of the event by working more with car clubs and reaching out to enthusiasts and groups that may be new to the event. This year we are hoping to see more air-cooled VWs, more late-model European cars, more vintage British cars and a bigger swap meet.”
