GM Nationals at Carlisle, June 24-June 26

If you are a GM fan, there is only 1 place to be this weekend.  GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA!  It's one of the largest GM events and it will be packed with awesome events and activities for fans of all things Chevy, Buick, Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC, and Oldsmobile.

The event will include, Hot-Rodders of Tomorrow high school program with scholarship money to be awarded.  The art of GM.  Industry guests and celebrity appearances.  A vintage vehicle certification program for helping restorers.  You could win an engine (GM LS-style small block crate engine) just for attending the show.  Rausch Creek Off Road Park will be there with trainers and seminars will be run.  There will be a giveaway of a 1975 Cosworth Vega.  A chance to sit in Bruce Larson’s USA-1 Camaro or USA-1 Corvette.  A dyno challenge and burnout contest.  Probably one of guy's favorite events Miss Carlisle GM Nationals (where girls will obviously be judged in bikinis).  What I have listed is not even everything that's going on… there are even more great events at GM Nationals this weekend!

Pictures: Baltimore’s 2011 Motor Trend International Auto Show

Here are pictures from the Baltimore's 2011 Motor Trend International Auto Show.  I was fortunate enough to go last weekend and it was fun, but nowhere near as exciting as past shows.  Clearly the auto industry is still in a slump and it showed.  There were new models and several classics cars there.  Somehow you felt the empty space and lack of enthusiasm from some manufacturers displays.  I still like going though and I hope people enjoy my pictures.
