Carlisle hosts Chrysler Nationals this weekend

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) - The Chrysler Nationals began Friday on the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

The show features nearly 3,000 vehicles from all different eras.

This year, the Dodge Super Bee and the Plymouth Road Runner turn 50.

And parents, you may actually fool your kids into learning something over the summer break.

"Because this is a museum, you're seeing cars that are 30, 40, 50, 60 years old, cars you don't see driving on the streets anymore, and cars that are made with metals, steel," Carlisle Events spokesman Mike Garland said. "These cars were built to last, which is a perfect example of the ingenuity and engineering that took place at the time they were being built."

The Chrysler Nationals run through Sunday. Tickets are $15 dollars for adults; kids under 12 are free.
