Default Carlisle no more?

Has anyone else seen this?
http://www.carlisleevents.com/carlis...s/default.aspx

They're combining the Import Show with the "Performance and Style" show. The "Performance and Style" show is for lowered, stanced cars with scissor doors, foreign and domestic.

From an email they sent:
" All of the existing events and activities from the original show (Import & Kit Nationals) are slated to continue but we will also be adding to the schedule. Activities like the Real Street Shootout, Drifting, the Rolling Exhaust Contest, Burnout Contest, Low Car Limbo, and more will be added. Some activities such as Judging, the Coolest Club Challenge, and more will be expanded upon as the show will be much bigger. We will also continue activities like Seminars, Tech Sessions and more on the schedule. Please note there are NO audio competitions at the new event! "

I'm more than a little skeptical. Most people I know that normally go to the Import Show are refusing to go to this new show. It seems like a really bad idea.

Well, that sucks the high hard one. I'll probably still go, but I picture this show going the way of H2oi.

These shows used to be combined back in the day. They killed the Import show because it got out of hand, let it lay dead for a few years and then revived it. Give it some time, they'll kill it again.

You mean the "Performance and Style" show right? Not the Imports?

I know the organizer of this (these) events quite well, and the intention of neither show is to attract "stanced cars with scissor doors".

You're right, stance cars are the only ones that enter burnout contests, autocross events, drift events, and exhaust contests.

Depends on what date they use. It always conflicts with the hot rod event in ocean city md, and the antique fly0in in cambridge.
I want to do those more than I want to see idiot import shens.

I'll host a mega scrapple meet with a shop day and possibly Delaware drag day that weekend if there is interest.

They are doing it because of declining participation at both shows. Those of you who went to Carlisle Import last year will have noticed how few vendors there were, and the show field was fairly full but not nearly as full as it had been "back in the day." I've never been the Performance and Style event, but I can imagine that it's numbers are down as well.

Every year there are fewer vendors at the Impost show, not to mention the graphics for the import car t-shirt sucks big time. WTF! Maybe this new collaboration will bring the vendors back. Plus the performance, drifters, boom box, burn out cars will probably end up closer to the auto cross course. Also maybe if an actual non connected person would win the car give away. I've stayed few times till the end to see who wins and it's usually someone local, car collector, that other people seem to know. Just my impression, I may be wrong.

I'm so sad. Of Frickin course this happens when I've finally got a fitting car to take. Sorry guys, if I'd continued to be okay with bumming rides and taking the gf's dodge journey the show would probably still be happening. I like low cars, I do, but any show that has an exhaust competition and low car limbo just sounds lame. I liked the import/kit show because we were close to the most rambunctious people there. This seems like a magnet for the obnoxious.

Not happy about this either and as of right now I will not be attending. The date change also conflicts with other stuff I have to do so that's another strike against it. Such a shame but I think we should all jump ship en mass and show them how we feel. Combine the shows?? It'll be the smallest show ever. I go every year to hang out with my friends in the company of other great like minded people and to look at beautiful and/or interesting imported cars old and new. I have NO desire to be around loud exhaust contests or weirdos competing for low car limbo. I also feel like combining these shows will ruin camping by pushing us out with the "there's no room" excuse. They've been pushing us campers out for years now and this is a great reason to make the camping area even smaller.

Nope. Not going. They're not getting any of my money in 2016, that's for sure.

Mike P, I'm in for a scrapple meat as long as I can get away for a bit that weekend!

I've never touched ground in DE, just driven through a tiny piece of it. I'd love to find another way to see all of my favorite TB people on the same weekend import/kit would have been, because it's a holiday weekend in canuckistan and basically the only time I can get 3-4 days off in a row. If it still involves camping I'm all the more for it.

I had a pipe dream about hosting some such event in my mom's 15 acre field but I feel like no one would come

EDIT: I bet the Saab crew are super pissed about this as well, and they are the biggest group of attendees every year to import/kit. This was really a bonehead move and I hope they figure it out and fix it.
