My favorite memory was last year in the STS rental trying to get the damn thing to burn the tires haha. I most likely won't make it this year because of work I'm pretty bummed :(

My best memories are of Seb & Mel's wedding in 2007 IIRC, then of the endless burn-outs in the test drive vehicles right in front of the tent. They kinda frown upon that these days!!

I think it was my first Carlisle - 2009 (but its all a blur), we had 4 M's heading to the SAT night dinner - we were all literally inches apart - like a NASCAR draft - flying down the final straight before turning into the side street to get to the parking lot. But alas... none of us new where the turn was except for Ken (lead car) and when he hit the brakes from 50 to 5 to make the 90* turn, OMG................... its a good thing M's have great brakes!!

I know Robert remembers. We had to go commando the rest of the night.

I was in Ken's car that night. I thought for sure we were going to have a pile up.

Wow... my favorite memory of Carlisle....is deciding to become a member of the club after attending the first meet. I started looking forward to old friends, new friends, and families for years to follow :!:. However, we really missed all the beer bottles stacked beautifully on the window sill just outside our room last year AND was so disappointed my sister (Lindsey) didn't get her second chance to possibly appear on the front page of a glamour magazine :roll: . Winning a trophy aint so bad either...lol. When you start with one memory, it just starts a snowballing of eventful memories that all seem to be your favorite "one". A big hug to all.

Remember those tears in my old seat cushion? I think I had pinched one of them into it that night... good brakes and stiff suspensions kept everything peachy!

You should have seen the look of astonishment on your face when Keith called out your name, Cindy!

Being this is my 1st Carlisle event I have quite a few "favorite" memories. I think the best one though is being welcomed into the family like I was in it the whole time. Learning some cleaning tips from Bob never-dull on the wheel well eh, I thought I was high tech with foaming tire cleaner lol I might have to give you a run for your money next year lol, after all I was lucky to get the R/T back together and running to even make it to the show. I look forward to making many more fond memories @ Carlisle, Ocean City, Indy.

I moved this into the 2013 section for Carlisle.

Keep the memories coming! I really hope some new members will make the trip this year, come meet some of your fellow members and hang out for a weekend of fun.

One of my favorite memories from last year is the overwhelming amount of support the club received with the M&M theme. Members purchased their own items to contribute to the club and it was awesome to see the support.

It was also great to see all three clubs hanging out with each other again, this included the Saturday night dinner. Lets make a habit of doing just that in the future.

Marvelling at the mods that Kumar had done to his M. Microwave oven in the back and refrigerator among other things. A true "work of mods." Miss seeing Kumar with the Club.

Another fond memory I had (and Bob reminded me of it @ Indy this year) was when myself, Bob, and many others were trying to help Stan figure out what the popping noise was in his front end after replacing the struts. I sawed on Stan's steering wheel for a while, then Bob took over. It was hot and humid that night, then it was mentioned ( I believe by myself) that Bob was indeed "teabagging" Stan's seat. We had mentioned that Bob "teabagged" his seat, and Stan didn't understand what that meant. So, after looking it up....and having a laugh I am sure....there was mysteriously enough a teabag or two placed around Stan's car on the showfield.

Good times....good times.

I went to Carlisle 2009, and most remember watching the dyno runs and seeing older Chryslers, particularly the group of '66 thru '67 Chargers (1st gen. - the fastback design with the tali lights all the way across the back) like my father owned and that my wife and I dated in.

Dyno Pulls:

90+% of the noise here is intake, not exhaust:


I video'd this one (Alan's car, with Seth):


This is the '66-'67 (1st gen.) Charger body style. I like the body much better than the Barracudas and of the 2nd gen. Chargers. This is not my dad's, but my dad's was light blue (like you used to see on some older Plymouths) - I've never seen another that color, although it was the factory color (most common colors were red, yellow, and white). Standard factory interior - tuck and roll leather, "Select-Shift" (manually shiftable automatic) transmission:

At the age and mileage on my car now, I'd be deathly afraid it would spin a bearing and I'd be stuck in Carlisle a long way from home.

More just along the lines of getting the guy come up, "I'm sorry. You only have 190 HP." Then walks away slowly........

My favorite Carlisle memorys are always the nights at the hotel and trips to Harrys. I really wish I could make it out this year with the new M. However, with the car payments and massive amount of mods I've done on the car, I just can't make it. Its around a 1800 round trip from Iowa. Gas would be killer, even if I could sell a lot of my parts out there.
