Ford Carlisle 2010
« on: January 10, 2010, 11:16:40 am »
I just got this via email:

"Hi fellow Car Enthusiasts,
 
My name is Stuart Nembrotti president of the Cougar Club of NJ & PA. I am working with the people at Carlisle (Rick Markko and Val Stewart) and we are looking forward to adding a new class to the Ford Show this year. The class will be for people 25 year old and under, it will be called “Young Guns at Carlisle”. There will be one or more categories depending on how many sign up. In order to do this I need to see if there is any interest from the younger members in your club. Please pass this on to your members and any other clubs you can think of. It is for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury products but it can be in any condition. We are just trying to get the young ones in our hobby to meet and show what they are working on. Let’s give them a chance to enjoy the same hobby we have for so many years.
 
Thank you, and if you have any questions feel free to send me an e-mail ww2gamer@optonline.net
 
Stuart Nembrotti"

On the 428 CJ front, I'm planning to have tent available for us again.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

Are you willing to help cover the cost?  We've never registered enough people to get a tent for free, so the cost will be somewhere between $100 and $200.

I just sent in the club tent registration form.  The tent costs $175, so donations to help cover the cost are appreciated.  Please send me a PM if you'd like to donate using PayPal and I'll send you my personal PayPal address.

We'll have space at the tent to park 4 cars.  I'm going to reserve two of those spaces for me and Chris (if he wants it).  The remaining spaces will probably be available on a "first come, first served" basis.  Keep in mind that anyone who parks at the tent may miss out on parking with other cars in the show classes.

We could use a table and some chairs - any volunteers?  To help keep the rental cost down I didn't ask the folks at Carlisle to provide them.

When you register, please use "Mustang 428 Cobra Jet Registry" as your club.  USE THIS NAME EXACTLY!  If we get 25 cars the tent will be free, but it's important that we all register using the same name to make sure we get counted correctly.

Now this looks interesting:

Carlisle Ford Nationals Celebrates Heritage of Legendary Cobra Jets at Carlisle PA Fairgrounds June 4 – 6

CARLISLE, PA – Cobra Jets of varying eras will be flying into Carlisle for a one-of-a-kind heritage celebration with events, energy and photo opportunities that will have Ford fans talking for years to come.

1968-2010 Cobra Jets:  Legends and Champions

To continue efforts connecting the past to the present, Carlisle Events and Ford will flex Cobra Jet drag racing muscle at the June 4-6, 2010 Carlisle Ford Nationals.  Attendees can expect to see the full spectrum of Ford’s world-famous Cobra Jet race cars together for the first time in one location. 

For over 40 years, Cobra Jet Mustangs have been scoring consistent racing victories, one eighth- and quarter-mile at a time.  Along with four of the original classic NHRA-dominant 1968 Cobra Jet race cars from yesteryear, there also will be modern examples of the CJ representing both the 2008 and 2010 model years.  In recreating the original drag-racing legend for competition today, Ford followed up its 2008 feat of building a limited run of 50 turn-key Cobra Jet race cars for the track with another updated offering of 50 Cobra Jets for 2010 all finished with white exteriors.

This year, Ford will be showcasing Ford Racing's 2010 Cobra Jet #1 workhorse, the only one produced in silver exterior paint, and truly the ultimate factory drag racing machine.  This single extreme example, custom-developed by Ford Racing engineers, has been built to embody the pure muscle of Ford performance.   To sum up the building anticipation, Carlisle Events’ Ford Nationals Event Manager, Rick Markko, explains, “The Carlisle Ford Nationals will be rocking with excitement as the legendary Cobra Jets will be here in Carlisle to strike the pose of a lifetime!  The heritage continues as the Cobra Jet race cars and their drivers gather together for one more blast, quite likely en route to the Hall of Fame!”

John Clor, Communications Manager for Ford Racing's Ford Performance Group focused on enthusiast organizations, encourages Ford fans not to miss this rare opportunity to see the full Cobra Jet race car heritage all in one place. Clor notes, “Along with Carlisle Events, we [Ford] are proud to show off the proverbial superstar 2010 Cobra Jet alongside some of the 1968 CJ legends for the first time in public. This might very well be the only chance that diehard fans will ever have to get up close and personal with the full gamut of these incredible drag racing cars…all in the same place. Our enthusiasts cannot only see it, but breathe it – and live it!  This may never happen again.”

Collaboration between Ford and Carlisle

Clor goes on to declare Carlisle as “the quintessential Ford fan destination.”  Recalling the last 15 years of collaboration between the two companies, Clor points out, “Carlisle Events has evolved successfully into the perfect platform for us [Ford] to come out and interact with our loyal owners and enthusiasts, both to celebrate our long heritage of great vehicles and to showcase new Fords that are destined to be the stars of this show in the years ahead.”

You wouldn't think we would be the last to know, would you ???  Anyway, I read this as Ford assembling CJ race cars under their tent, not a CJ reunion.  Should be fun to watch but would have been more fun to participate; or at least include the 135 & 68.5 owners!
