When my son was growing up, one of our favorite father-son activities was going to the shows at Carlisle. Whether we were looking for a hidden gem part at the flea market, dreaming about the concept cars on display inside, or talking about beauties I used to own while looking at the treasures of others, we always enjoyed our day trips. (He also enjoyed getting his picture taken with the Budweiser girls when he was in middle school). After a 15-year hiatus, we made our return to Carlisle this summer to the Ford show. While it was hot, and we didn't see the Bud girls, we still had a great time.
