Why can't they have a Barracuda display out at the defunked dealership outside of gate 1. I don't recall anything being there last year.
Sorry for the delay in replying to this but this is BUSY SEASON for me! Spring Carlisle is less than one month away
I'll do my best to give everyone my thoughts on this and hopefully clarify a few things. As far as the old dealership display, last year it was the Max Wedge Reunion and this year it will host the Race Hemi Reunion. It's the perfect size for those reunions and it's pretty well locked in. The building itself only holds 20-22 cars comfortably and I don't think anyone wants me to move all of the 'Cuda/Barracuda classes (A & E-Bodies) to that lot.
I totally agree that the overall celebration should be bigger than 12 cars in Building T and we can do something to make it bigger but that's where I'm looking for input. Feel free to shoot ideas to me in this thread and I'll respond.
Applications are coming in for the Building T display but I still want to encourage everyone to apply if you're interested. I'd like to have a pool to choose from just so I have some options. I like to have color choices, engine choices, etc.
If we do one of every year, and they are all stock, representing all options suggested in other posts will be difficult. If we do an AAR, that fills the 1970 slot. That means we would still need a Shaker, a convertible and a Mod Top. I would have to get a '71 Hemicuda convertible obviously with a Shaker and a '69 Mod Top. I don't know if I can get a real '71 Hemicuda convertible but I'll try. And yes, I'd like all cars in the display to be real/factory cars if possible. I have nothing against clones but people will assume all cars in this display are correct and that's what I'd like to have...if possible.
It would be cool to get historic race cars for each year but that would be almost impossible. I like the idea and I can definitely see getting some race cars and putting them in Building T to complement the Barracuda display. I'll look into that.
Maybe this will grow beyond the 12 car idea and I can put some other Barracudas across from the 12 "anniversary cars". Again, feel free to share any and all ideas here. After all, this is YOUR show. ALL feedback is always welcome with me.
