CARLISLE FORD NATIONALS 2017 COVERAGE

It came. It went. For east-coasters and for those around the Great Lakes region, our celebration of blue oval power kickoffs summer each year with the Carlisle Ford Nationals. Held during the first weekend of June in Carlisle Pennsylvania, the Ford Nationals IS the place to view 82 acres of FoMoCo products.

There were an estimated 47 Saleen manufactured vehicles in attendance for Saturday’s Fun Field Participant Ballot Car Show. With a small collection of Saleen Mustangs in the Carlisle Car Corral anticipating new enthusiastic owners. Our collection of Saleen vehicles ranged from the debut model year 1985 editions to the latest 2017 S302 Yellow Label. With a sprinkle of an S331 Sport Truck and two Saleen Foci.

Event support appreciation to Rudy & Betsy Beyer for their effort operating the SOEC tent and appreciation to all participants, enthusiasts and owners that makes this event so exceptional.

SALEEN CELEBRATES 20th ANNUAL CAR SHOW AND OPEN HOUSE
With personal delivery of four new supercharged Saleens

For over 30 years Saleen has set the precedent for performance and innovation in the performance vehicle market. For 20 of those years Saleen has celebrated their customers, friends, and employees with an annual car show and open house. The most recent being their 20th Annual show.

Held at their headquarters in Southern California, they saw thousands of people enjoying over 200+ Saleen vehicles from all over the country. Everything from Saleen Foxbody Mustangs to Ford GT(40)s and everything in between were in attendance.

Prior years’ events included: a first look at the Saleen GTX Tesla and the all-new 2015 302 Black Label colored in signature Beryllium Metallic paint. This year was no different with 4 new S302 Yellow Labels being delivered to their new owners!

“This year was the best yet, we took time out at noon to acknowledge each individual owner” said Steve Saleen, “it was a testament to the culture that surrounds our vehicles, like a family we were all there to celebrate the newest members of our exclusive club.”

This year’s trophies were class specific mini-helmets, all with a Saleen livery and signed by Mr. Saleen himself.. With next year’s event being the 21st annual, Saleen is expected to go bigger and better than ever before. For more information, visit SaleenShow.com.
