Our field agent Mike Matune was on the ground at Carlisle’s annual bash for lovers of everything Dodge & Plymouth.
Carlisle Events once again filled the Fairgrounds with every manner of Chrysler product for the 2014 Carlisle Chrysler Nationals. Here you look over just a portion of the goings on and ask yourself; where else could you see this many immaculately prepared E-Bodies (1970-‘74 Barracudas and Challengers) in one place? As the factory Supercar wars escalated, cars became ever more radical. Chrysler came to the fight with an altered-wheelbase racer and Hilborn-injected 426 Hemi power, moving further from its production car roots. A/FX cars like this gave birth to the Funny Car concept and helped fuel the match racing wars.

of humor as the truck bore the markings, “Pappy’s Mortuary” offering 24/7 service!
The exhaust tips were skulls.
