Carlisle 2010 Pictures Posted

Tonight I went through all of my photos and picked out some to share. You can find them in my PicasaWeb Carlisle 2010 photo album.

I never want to have a single copy of any computer file and this especially true for my photos. I lost pictures once and I never want it to happen again. So, since I already use Picasa as my Windows picture manager, I started to use PicasaWeb for online photo storage. It has worked quite well. Each night while at Carlisle I uploaded the days pictures to PicasaWeb.

Carlisle 2010 Trip Report

This was the most stormy Carlisle All-Ford Nationals in my fours years of attendance. But, we didn’t let that get us down. We still had a great time. This year I tried something different with my use of twitter to post pictures and short updates as the show went on. Thanks to all those who followed my twitter stream. I used my “dumb phone” to take the pictures and type the messages using the numeric keypad. It was a little bit of a pain but some of the messages I pre-typed before the trip so as not to have to do it while driving.

Attendance was slightly better than last year:

Ken B. (from NJ) – Sat, Sun – 1992 Vibrant Red
Brian E. (from PA) – Fri, Sun – 1992 Vibrant Red
Tom G. (From MD) – Fri, Sat, Sun – 1992 Vibrant Red
Amy H. (from MD) – Fri, Sat – 1993 Canary Yellow
Bob H. (From PA) – Fri, Sat – 1990 Emerald Green
Tim H. (from PA) – Fri, Sat, Sun – 1993 Vibrant White
Dawn L. (from MD) – Sat – 1992 Vibrant Red
Mike P. (from MA) – Fri, Sat, Sun – 1992 Vibrant Red

7-up Car Lost in Fire

This year at Carlisle we again saw Nick P. who, while not a member of this site, has joined us the past three years with his ’90 7-up. He informed us that he lost it in a garage fire earlier this year. He mentioned that it was on the news so I found some coverage of it here. It is a sad loss but he credits his cat with alerting him to the fire. You can see the rear of the car in the video. It was a total loss but was covered fully through his agreed-value classic car insurance and serves as a good reminder to us all of the importance of the right insurance coverage. I think he said he had either Hagerty or Grundy.
