Does anyone know if Gordy Chilson still puts on his show in Lawrenceville PA?  Last time I went it was over Labor Day weekend a few years ago  and I would like to go again if it is still happening.

Thanks

Sorry to say Gordy stopped hosting the show a couple of years ago. When I talked to him in Cleveland last year he indicated that he had no plans at that time to start it back up again.

That was one of the very best AMC shows in my opinion. Gordy always got some amazing cars to show up, and he & his family really rolled out the red carpet for everyone.

Thanks for the memories Gordy & family!!!

Too bad. I can understand though as it was a huge time commitment and expense. Always loved going there.

Used to love going to that show. The Chilson family had an amazing museum (showroom) that had the coolest AMC memorabilia which was probably my favourite part of the show. My plan was to "unveil" my car there for the first time when it was done but that took 5 years longer than I thought it would!! Gord and his family were first class people hosting this show.

The Chilson show was always my favorite but it was a huge undertaking and I understand the decision to discontinue it. Gordy is still there supporting the AMC hobby.

It was also my favorite show as well. No trophies, just hanging out with a bunch of AMC people. Was my wife's favorite show, too. We both miss it dearly.

All,

I spoke to Gordy in the spring at Carlisle and he said that he was going to do his how again next year.

He didn't give me a date.
