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!

2015 Chevrolet SS: More muscle than the original

By Mike Blake - Carlisle Events

Even when the original of something is legendary, it doesn’t mean that you can’t improve on the theme generations later. The iconic Chevy SS fits into that mold, a legendary muscle car that has added to its power, safety, economy, comfort and tech amenities more than a half-century after its introduction. The Chevrolet SS or Super Sport began as a $53.80 “kit” package for Impala in 1961, though the SS badge goes back to the 1950s, when GM’s legendary designer Zora Arkus-Duntov welded an SS badge (code for “Super Sport”) to GM's first purpose-built racer – an early Corvette.
