Wow, 2019 was the year that was. A fitting celebration for the 60th Anniversary of the 1959 Plymouth. Will next year be anything like it? I suspect not. But, I got this note from the Official '59 Plymouth Motel:

I've got three rooms reserved at the '59 Plymouth Motel (Motel 6) in Mechanicsburg, PA - Thursday 9-Jul-20, Friday 10-Jul-20 and Saturday 10-Jul-20. Same rate as last year, $120 + hotel tax. One for me, one for the Keijs, and one for you! Who's comin'?!?

Darn. :cry: ....once again Carlisle is being held on same weekend as the Iola Old Car Show. One of these years, maybe. I think a few years ago it was a weekend apart but can't remember why I didn't go. Sent my preregistration stuff in last week for Iola '20 so spring can't be too far away. My '59 is hibernating in my garage all tucked in patiently waiting for April.....last year it was May. Gotta get that salt off the roads.

Anyway, Dan, congrats on the latest Plymouth Bulletin (Sep-Oct '19). Received mine today. Awesome '59 coverage.

Thanks John! I can’t wait to see it - it seems like I’m the last one to receive the Bulletin :cry: We will miss you at Carlisle, as usual - but please post pix from Iola!

Folks, it's beginning to look grim for Carlisle 2020 - I've been following the announcements for many meetings of all sorts, all of which seem to take the same course of events: 1) Hoping to see you there, 2) We will take every precaution, 3) We will make a final decision as the time gets closer, 4) The event is cancelled.

Here's the Fairgrounds announcement about Spring Carlisle:


Even if the Chrysler Nationals end up being held, it's not likely I'll go this year... At my age, the risk is too great. I can't even predict when I'll go back to work, if ever (fortunately I can work from home for the time being). Mary Kay and I have cut off all social contacts, including family - we're relying on FaceTime and Google Hangouts a lot.

So if I don't see you there this year, look for me next year. Hey, maybe even with Martha (if I can get Matthew or Ron to drive Faulkner). Take care of yourselves, and your loved ones.

Some grim realities from the Fairgrounds, about Spring Carlisle:


Will the Chrysler Nationals be postponed, or cancelled? Not for now... But we will see.
