Shark Attack at the 2014 Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals: May 16-18, 2014

Hi Gang…

As you’ve recently heard, we’re taking the Forgotten Fiberglass show on the road next week and are very much honored in participating at the 2014 Import & Kit Nationals held in Carlisle, Pennsylvania – click here for more information about this event.

This year we are going to show our 1962 Shark Roadster – as we did last year – before returning the Shark to its home here in Tampa, Florida.  Home sweet home…

After the 2013 Carlisle show, the Shark could be seen at the AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania in an exhibit called “Pop Culture & Cars.”  It appeared with some of my favorite cars which included the 1955 Flajole Forerunnerclick here for more information about this car.   And click here if you would like to review more about the “Pop Culture & Cars exhibit that appeared last Fall at the AACA Museum.

During Carlisle this year, the Shark will be on display with the Renault club – headed by good friend Marvin McFalls – that will be having their annual meet.

It will be great to see everyone who will be participating in the Renault group and…we have another Renault surprise to discuss with the group once we are there  – one that hasn’t been seen in nearly 50 years.

More about that in-person at the Carlisle event so we hope to see fiberglass enthusiasts, Renault enthusiasts, and all types of car enthusiasts throughout the weekend.

Summary:

Thanks again to Ed Buczeskie for allowing Forgotten Fiberglass to participate as part of this year’s Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals.  Once we return home, our 1962 Shark Roadster will be able to be seen with its brother – the 1961 Covington Tiburon/Shark coupe at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum in Sarasota, Florida.  Click here for more information about this museum.

Hope you enjoyed the story, and until next time…

Glass on gang…

  1. What are the tail lights? ’58 Chevy? ’54 Pontiac?

    I really like the creativity of the design. There’s been nothing like it before and nothing after it-the mark of creativity.

  2. Just curious, why are the imports and kits together? Is it because neither is a big enough draw by themselves? Or other users of Carlisle are too big to add kit cars such as Fords, Corvettes etc? I just don’t see a connection between imports and kit cars.

  3. @Joe – Don’t know Joe. I’m part of the group that will be there, but not part of Carlisle events. Geoff
