Ford and Chrysler Enthusiasts to Take Part in Special Automotive Face-Off at Philly Auto Show

Carlisle Events to Support Second Annual Event During Popular February Show

When the calendar flips to April, the 2014 Carlisle Events’ “home-based” schedule will commence as the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds hosts ten of the company’s 14 annual weekends. Thousands upon thousands of car and truck centric enthusiasts as well as those interested in the sports and outdoor lifestyle will travel to central Pennsylvania for a wide array of weekend happenings. Two of those events, the Carlisle Ford Nationals and the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, host some of the automotive world's most popular cars and trucks. Be it a Mustang representative of Ford’s muscle or the Charger, showcasing Mopar’s muscle, these two brands have a lot of history and strong support among their respective backers. This year, not only will Ford and Mopar be showcased at Carlisle, the two brands will square off at the Philadelphia International Auto Show and Carlisle Events will be there to help with this one-of-a-kind face-off for the second consecutive year.

As part of the contest at the auto show, February 8-16 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, local Ford and Mopar clubs will display their best cars for show goers to experience and evaluate. The contest will take place in rooms 201 and 204, located on the bridge between the Main Exhibit Hall and the Grand Hall. As part of each display, more than a dozen cars will be on hand and enthusiasts can vote for their favorite piece of American muscle onsite and in person via conveniently located kiosks. On the Ford side, expect to see Mustangs, Torinos, Cougars, Fairlanes, Galaxies and more. For Mopar fans, anticipated cars include Barracudas, Challengers, Daytonas, Chargers and more. After days of examination and voting, the results will be tabulated at the conclusion of the event. The brand with the most votes will be declared the winner. Each group is competing for bragging rights and for the ability to say that their brand, be it Ford or Mopar, is better than the other. Ford is seeking to retain its crown, having its Mustang easily defeat GM’s Camaro in 2013.

With so many "power players" gathered in one location during the event, Carlisle Events is excited to be included as part of this competition. Staff from Carlisle will be onsite assisting members from the Philly area Ford and Mopar-themed car clubs in the automotive evaluation, all while interacting with enthusiasts. Though Carlisle Events has been very visible in recent years at the auto show, it is just the second time in the 113-year history of the historic nearly ten-day event that Carlisle will be such a prevalent player.

"This is such a great opportunity for us (Carlisle Events) to be involved with the Philadelphia Auto Show as well as the Ford and Mopar brands," said Ford Nationals event manager Ken Appell and Carlisle Chrysler Nationals event manager Ed Buczeskie in a joint statement. “By being part of this face-off, we can show our support for these great brands as well as an auto show with over a century of history to its name. The clubs that will support this great display and represent both Ford and Mopar during the Philly Auto Show also support Carlisle annually as part of the June (Ford) and July (Chrysler) events. Appell and Buczeskie concluded by adding that "our presence at the auto show also gives us a great forum to interact with automotive enthusiasts from all over who will converge on the City of Brotherly Love during the winter and who also join us in Carlisle each summer." - See more at: ... ik3KM.dpuf
