It's official, RT (Ron) will be bringing the incredible Diablo he has been building to the Carlisle-import-and-performance-nationals. I am also committing to bringing the Countach to the show.

The show is May 19 - 21, 2017, Ron says Saturday the 20th is the big turn out day especially if the weather is good. I am renting an enclosed trailer for the car and planning on leaving Thursday May 18th from Cambridge, Ontario to be at the event Friday for some of the show. Will be there all day Saturday and Sunday.

This year Velocity will be shooting a show at the event. This will create a draw along with the other events planned. Hear is a link to the details. http://www.carlisleevents.com/carlisle-events/carlisle-import-and-performance-nationals/default.aspx

If your part way building, thinking of building or have it built, come out! Guys like Ron will be there to answer all the questions about building and guys like myself for the ones "after the build".

Many of us have contributed to the forum over the years and this would be a great opportunity to meet face to face. Share some experiences and appreciation for the community of enthusiast!

Don't be the one that misses the event this year, it's gearing up to be THE ONE!

I've got the Diablo back to where I can drive it down the street again. So I'm thinking I will be there, trailer it there and drive it a bit once it is there. No tag or anything yet. Smile But I'll try to wire up my brake lights and some things before I get there. Maybe get my seat shells in it instead of these crap Camaro seats. Anyway. It's no where near done obviously but I do have people wanting to see it when they can. And it is cool seeing an LT1 with all of the fuel injectors disconnected and fuel rail with no feed or return to it. But it runs like it should and there is only the one injector not spraying much. Very Happy It's always a good day when I see that.

I think it's only about a 9 hour drive for me with the trailer from my place. I'll see about getting a place to stay here soon and reply again once I know 100% that I'm in. Right now I'm about 90% sure I'm in.

I did just post up a new update with today's date on it. Small explosions can be exhilarating! Smile ha ha

Thanks,
Coop

Awesome, Coop! I've read your blog and watched your videos and see how methodical your approach has been. This will be something! We like to see cars in progress as well as finished builds. Be prepared to explain a lot.
I think we are all anxious to meet you and your Lambo.

RT

88.5, from someone who has been to Carlisle several of the past 15 years, I had to chuckle when you said this was going to be THE ONE. Now, with almost four exotic replicas confirmed, it will indeed shatter all previous attendance and be THE ONE. To all unfamiliar with Carlisle, and to all familiar with my dry humor, I am serious about this.

lol I know from what you guys have mentioned in the past it wasn't a stretch after I knew Ron and I confirmed. As you may have figured out I'm trying to use some sound bite and click bate to drive some more intrest to our small market.

I do see how the next generation could revive it, I would think your car would certainly draw them!!!

I was thinking back, but I believe it was more than 15 years ago when there were 7 Diablo's there at the same time. Most of them were D&R cars. So yeah, I was thinking only 4? I figured more would try to make it seeing that we're making an effort to get several if we could. Maybe they don't know. Could also be that more in paint now would rather make next year. I'm thinking mine could be ready and already in paint before next year as well. But I'm trying to iron out my last details of room to stay in, pay for my entry, etc. and then I'll post that I'm 100% done & coming too.

Thanks,
Coop

I'm secretly trying to get Rick of D&R to get my doors together for me before this one. shh don't tell anyone. Wink

I'm in. 100%
Staying Mechanicsburg Thurs, Fri & Sat night. May go see the Hershey tour or something Friday morning, not sure. Heard it is pretty cool.

Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and maybe Sunday morning we'll be at the event.

Will see you all there!

Thanks,
Coop

88.5, I certainly respect yours and others desire to attend Carlisle, but I personally do not get it. I will be at the NSRA Nationals where there are plenty of exotic replicas and other kitcars along with another 6,000 or so cars to keep your interest. The commercial exhibits are a specialized SEMA Show that take at least a day to see, unlike Carlisle that crams the total four hours of activity into a three day long show.

I'm going because I've always wanted to go and hadn't had a chance before now. I've heard it is not what it used to be, but I also see that Velocity TV is going to be there. So it might work out that I do an interview over the fumes thing. We'll see.

Thanks,
Coop
