fair I guess. Are you guys open on the weekends?
I say that because for me to drive to you guys it would be like 3.5 hours. I liked you guys being at carlisle because I could check out what you had while at the show.

Granted I could just order off the website, but there is something nice about being able to actually physically see the products.

I was extra confused as the carlisle map showed you guys being in your usual spot, but I walked down there, and it was empty, lol

Probably not. I believe we are officially done traveling to shows.

Congrats to all o the winners. Sorry to bump up an old thread, just wanted to get caught up. Did anyone get a bunch of pics? Or did anyone make it over to the SVT Contours? I placed 2nd in my class and had to tow the car out on Sunday because I blew a tire in the first group of autocross on my third run.

Saw your car on saturday SVT, didn't happen to get any pics of it though.

I also saw you leaving autocross sunday morning when I was signing up, didn't see that you blew a tire out though. That kind of sucks.

Yea, I was limping her over to my second of the show field to leave it so I could get my roll back at work so I could pick up the car. Stupid thing is too low to tow without removing the damn bumper lol! I have to say though, I had a blast.

My car was too low for a tow truck before, I can't imagine now.
I might actually raise it up a bit.
I did another autox event last sunday and I ended up semi rolling my drivers side fender with my tire because it was scrubbing on hard right turns

Are your fenders rolled and pulled? I had to do mine because they rubbed pretty bad, especially this year because I went with a wider wheel and an offset that put the wheels out more.

Do it! I used a heat gun and a thick phone book to do mine.

I can probably borrow an eastwood roller from a buddy and do it if I need.

Wow. Did they consider the increased "visibility" factor from being at the show? Cost is cost I guess.

We've been doing this 30+ years I don't think they are worried about the increased visibility. We offer the best install video's on the market carry parts covering 50 years of mustangs and have doing shows for most of those years. Between free shipping and the easy of ordering online we don't bring as many orders to show as we use to so the huge tents and packed trucks full of parts is kind of fading like the paper catalog.

No worries though we still hold the annual cruise to Carlisle from CJ's so people still have the option to get parts or whatever we are looking for. Beside it gives the other guys a chance to do something without the fear of our huge display casting shadows over their "display".

I still worked that day, Bill on the other hand did get a chance to go out there and check out the show rather than work it, for the most part lol.
