CARLISLE FORD NATIONALS 2019 COVERAGE


Video: SOEC Staff

Early June signals the start of car show season for Ford fans living within the Northeast and Great Lakes region of the United States. The Carlisle Ford Nationals, presented annually at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in central Pennsylvania, had a record-setting 3,196 show vehicles in attendance for this east coast FoMoCo celebration.

An unofficial estimate of 54 Saleen-manufactured vehicles were proudly on display to exhibit Power In The Hands of a Few to all participants and admirers. Our collection of Saleen vehicles for Saturdays Fun Field Car Show ranged from those increasingly popular “four-eyed” 1985-86 editions to the latest 2019 SA-35 as well as rare XP Explorers and a S121 Focus.

With such a fruitful bounty of show cars, here were a few Saleen vehicles of note that we spied over the weekend:

  • The rarely seen California GT. These dealer “zone specials,” without Saleen serialization, are mythical and historical creatures.

  • Two Saleen SC editions, one from 1991 and the other from 1993; both vehicles respectfully represent a high-water mark for Fox generation Saleen Mustangs.

  • A lone SN95 Saleen S351. If the early ‘90s SC were a high-water mark, then the S351 was a multidimensional rocketship towards an innovative new era.

  • New S550 Saleen Mustangs, as the current generation S302 continues to roll through assembly for nationwide distribution, we see abundant opportunities for growth.

Gratitude and appreciation to all participants, enthusiasts and owners that makes this event so exceptional. Until next year!

We’ll do an early morning cruise to Angels Stadium (see lower map below) — Steve and Molly are expected to attend — unsure if they’ll do the cruise, but if you want to cruise to Angels Stadium, meet at Saleen at 7:45 a.m.; planned departure by 8:00 a.m. Everyone’s invited. You must be pre-registered for the show and have your confirmation card hanging from your rear view mirror as you enter the Stadium gate.

After the event, a group of us will have an early dinner (often we dine with Liz and Steve) before hitting the road. Again, text Jim D. to be put in the loop on that.
