Wendy, I'm home.
I have emailed Lisa Leathery at Carlisle Promotions and let her know what we are cooking up here and will let you all know what information she gives me just as soon as I get it.

Seth, You had a GREAT idea to get all the cars together.....but I would have to trailer my car from Colorado Springs and as I posted would like to see an event like Carlisle. If you were 200-250 miles away you'd see me EVERY year in Marion.

My car is not restored and wouldn't be in 2005(RM23M9A272929, #144 on the registry). I hope every owner that can bring an A12 car will do so. I know that $$ can be an issue to travel, let alone restore a car but the invitation is open to all who want to try for Carlisle in 2005. Please start thinking about bringing them unrestored as well as restored.

I'll keep a tally and figure out way to let you guys see an updated 'roll call' for who is:

A) Going to Carlisle in 2005
B) Not going
C) Hoping to and gonna try real hard to be there:)

Thanks,
Frank

Hey I understand that nobody is going to drive much over a couple hundred miles to speck on the map Marion LOL.So we will just have a few cars this year and maybe in a few years have something that is worth traveling along way for. Hope the Carlise deal goes well!

Hi, Guys

I just received this reply, below, from Lisa Leathery at Carlisle Promotions. She is asking for participation in '04 but I'll let her know that we are really looking ahead to 2005 and a few of us need a little more time to get this planned so that we get a maximum number of cars.

We can get a club tent with 25 registered 'members'(include your wives, kids and pets, if necessary)-we just need to come up with a 'Club Name' for them........any ideas? We could also have parking space together for a great 'gang' effect if we want.

I think that would be cool. We could watch over each other's cars and wouldn't have to worry about walking away to see the rest of the show and losing our fender tags

They might even assign us a class for judging!!

Later,
Frank


"Hi Frank, thanks for your interest in the Carlisle All Chrysler Nationals. We would welcome you group's participation. In answer to your question yes we can arrange for your members to be parked together and if you have 25 or more vehicles registered you would qualify for a club tent (even if you are not a club). In order to make these arrangements we will need to continue communicting. I would like to have you make a committment for the 2004 event. All individual owners will need to register under a club name so you will need to tell me what you want to be called. In order to get the tent and in order for us to have enough space for you to park together we will need to have the members pre-register. That way we will know how many cars will be coming. We will also need to discuss the possibility of assigning a class designation for your group that way we can also have the cars entered into the participant ballot award competition (1st 2nd and 3rd in class). I can provide you with additional information. I look forward to talking with you in more detail regarding your get together. I am sure your group will enjoy the show. This year Buddy Baker will be a guest. He will be here on Saturday. We also have drag racing on Friday evening. There is lots to do you will have a great time. Hotel rooms are difficult to get so once you make a decision about coming you will need to start looking for a hotel. Get back to me regarding your final decision. We look forward to your attendance.
Lisa"

Was there any other production car that ever came without hood hinges? Seems to me this is the only production car to ever have a Lift-Off-Hood This is the most unique item on these cars as the '70 and later models had hinged hoods.

I think "Lift-Off-Hood" for sure should be a part of the name (but that's just my opinion).

You know, we're already in a 'club'.......Dave's registry. 1969-1/2 SixPack/SixBbl Owners Club sounds pretty good.

Keep the ideas coming.

I think the
Lift Off Hood Re-Union
sounds about the best.
To me the name isn't important to me at all seeing 50 to 100 A12 cars will be awesome!!!

As a side note I think it is important that we start spreading the word. That means each of us need to start telling people have they heard about the upcoming Lift Off Hood Re-Union at Carlisle 2005!!!
Lets face it we are just a small fraction of A12 owners, there are lots of people that aren't even on-line yet or haven't run across Moparts or the Lift Off Hood Registry websites.
For those who subscribe to MCG maybe we could write in and get our "free" classified ad?
Any other ways you guys can think of advertising?

Hi, Dave

I put a post on MOPARCHAT.COM earlier today under the 'Vingtage MOPAR' heading and it got moved to 'Rumors and Gossip'(WTF??), getting no views. So I changed the post to say "Come see us at the A12 Restoration Forum at MOPARTS.COM"

Maybe you have to be a 4-time-a-day regular there to get to post non-technical stuff under the Vintage heading.

I made it to the 1992 Chrysler at Carisle 6-Pack Reunion. If anyone remembers it was free to register your 69 1/2 6Pack/6bbl car but we were not judged (we did get a small dash plaque). We had our own section at the show. You can check out the April 1993 Mopar Action, it covered the event.

I would be excited to go to the 2005 event, especially since it seems like many more A12 cars would be there.

Well aren't we a bunch of Johnnie Come Lately's or what???
Did they really call it the Six Pack Re-Union?
Thats why that name has such a good ring to it...we have all probably heard it before!
Who organized that one...how did you guys spread the word?
How many cars showed up?
Does anyone have a copy of the issue?
I wonder who will organize the never done before 2018 Lift Off Hood Re-Union...

Thanks RapidRunner!!!

Dave

They did call it a Six-Pack Reunion. I just reread the artical and the Carilse ad in MA.

This event was organized by Carisle products. I have been going to Carisle events since the 80's (i was young them) and I look for the Carisle ads in the Mopar magazine each month.

I will try to scan the ad and article and post it here.

As for number of cars, not many as I remember, about 12 or so A12 cars. But it was real neat to see them all in one long line.

I think a big difference in the potential turn-out will be who is driving the movement.

I am fairly new to this board but see a close group of owners and enthusiasts here who are all willing to promote the 2005 gathering. When Carlisle organized the '92 reunion I am sure they did not have the contacts to invite 6pack/6BBL owners specifically. It was probably an open invitation and most other A12 owners would not have had a place like this to discuss it and plan it.

Fast forward to 2003/2004 and we have this great board, Dave's registry, and multiple places to publicize this. It will be exciting to see the turn-out.

For owners not associated with this site or Dave's registry we can at least get their names and car info and know where more of these cars reside.

What a great opportunity to expand our knowledge and create more awareness about these cars.

Amen! This forum is a powerful medium.

I see where the dates for 2004 are July 9-11.

Are there any firm dates yet for 2005? In car restoration time frames, it's coming up quick. I checked the Carlisle site but found nothing on 2005.

I'm guessing that 2005 will be in mid Summer as always. If they change it to early Summer in 05, it might be tough for some of us to show up with our rides.

That'll be exactly 36 years, from mid Summer of 69 to mid Summer of 05. 36 years since they first left Lynch Road to terrorize the streets of North America. What a reunion it will be.

Best regards,
Coop

I sent an e-mail to WWNBOA, Winged Warriors National B-body Owners Assoc. this evening. There is an address in Boone, Iowa listed for more information from the organization, as well as an e-mail address. I used to work in Boone during the summer of 1989 for a roofer. I used to see 2 Superbirds parked in a garage there....always thought they were pretty cool. Also have an aunt who lives in Boone so there might be a connection to the WWNBOA. Either way, I'll send in my $25 for a membership and work on getting some more publicity for Carlisle.
