GM Weekend – Soggy but Fun!

If you love GM history, the 2015 Carlisle GM Nationals was the show for you. From early 1900’s production to modern day muscle, the show showcased GM’s best. The invitational displays hosted some of the coolest cars you’ll ever see, Building Y took a trip back to the ‘80s with the IROC-Z Camaro, and Building T host the Fabulous Fins and more, while Building G was home to the Solid Lifter Showroom and the gem of it all, the first Camaro ever produced.

Saturday was wet to say the least, but turnout was impressive given the circumstance. Between Friday and Sunday’s excitement, there was still a great time had by all. Sunday featured drifting exhibitions as SLP presented Formula Drift Champion Michael Essa and there was autocross, the awards parade and even more cars cruising in for a fun final day. Save the date, next year’s show runs June 24-26!

By Mike Blake - Carlisle Events

With a redesign set for 2017, Ram continues as the third-best-selling truck in America and is the No. 4-selling vehicle in America.
