Devoted to imports, kit cars and replicars, this show was established in 1986. In 1996, a showfield for the young enthusiasts driving late model import and domestic compact cars was added. Due to the growth of the custom compact portion of the show and in order to retain prime showfield spaces for import & kit/replicars, it has become necessary to separate the two events. In 2001, the Carlisle Custom Compact Nationals takes place May 3-5, 2002, but the show with the major Volvo showing is still the Import Kit/Replicar show on the 17-19.<P>Featured is a large corral where individuals offer their cars for sale. The import swap meet and kit manufacturers area provides a huge variety of parts, supplies, body components and memorabilia all within one location. There's also a show area, where you can preregister for teh showfield. A $10 preregistration fee will allow two adults adn one vehicle into the three day event all weekend. That's important, because it costs more to spectate unless you are alone and only attending one day. It's worth it, because you also get more chances to win the giveaway car on Sunday, which isn't anything all that great this year, but it's still a car (replica of Mercedes roadster, kinda cheesey).<P>Also, mention Swedespeed as your club. If we get like 25 members there we'll get our own tent.<P>Last year, VCOA also had a tent, and buffet lunch on Sunday for members and some lucky Volvo owners who they shared lunch tickets with.<P>There's also bank and notary services inside the event, as well as camping on the grounds (yes, I've confirmed its availability for this particular event, but it is first come first served).<P>Last year it was a wide range of Volvos. Many were stock, but some were quite modified. The swapmeet area also had plenty of parts on hand, specifically for older cars, though I saw some vendors with some of the newer wheels as well.<P>You can find more info on this and other Carlisle shows at <A HREF="http://www.carsatcarlisle.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.carsatcarlisle.com</A> .
