ImpalaForums.com representing at GM Nationals 2016 in Carlisle PA...

MODS: Please move this to the appropriate section of the boards... This does not pertain particularly to the 8th Gens only, I want EVERYONE to see this, and hopefully represent at THE BIGGEST GM event & car show there is... So please move this to where everyone can see it.

Okay everyone, I wanted to post this for EVERYONE on this group and these boards to see, and hopefully make a great turn-out this coming year at the GM Nationals at Carlisle, Pa. From what I was told, there were really only 2 newer Impalas at the event last year, and that kinda sucks... I am already planning to attend next year, and I hope we can get others to join us.

Now I know that the newer (2000+ year models...) aren't really all that desirable to most due to the transverse/FWD platform, but I think and feel that we should show the amount of love and passion for our rides that we do here, at the biggest GM event ever. Now I don't know the total amount of Impalas that wind up showing up - both newer and older alike, but I want to make a push for our cars and have a better turn out than what it has been. Not only that, but if and when you go to register, there aren't many clubs represented for the Impala. And when there are, they are all for the model up to the mid- to late 70's cars...

So for anyone who is interested in making the push and showing our true love for the Impala, let's do just that and get ImpalaForums.com represented at GM Nationals!!! I am also going to try and get the same push going for the LS4 crew and groups as well, because there is just as much love for the LS4 cars as there is we do for the Impala itself.

So who is with me and getting ImpalaForums.com the recognition we need and deserve at GM Nationals from now on??? Who else is interested in showing the rest of the GM world that our cars are still just as much-loved as any other GM model out there??? If you are, then I say head over to the GM Nationals page and register. If you plan on going, have one of the ImpalaForums.com decals with you or on the car so we can make our group and presence know. Because that is watching I plan on doing this coming year, and hope many of you can join me in achieving this goal!!!

Do we have the dates yet? I've been meaning to go to GM nationals for the past few years, but it's always been tough with my work schedule. This summer I may actually be able to get the time off to go.

Moved to Announcements and stuck to the top.

Don't say I never did anything for ya.

Awesome post and would really be great to see a strong IF presence (We should have IF.com decals again). Would be nice to get some recognition.

This is a pic from last year's 2000 + up Impala section... my friend took this pic, and she took 2nd for her car (the red 8th gen...), and the black one always wins 1st.

This is why we should get a good turn out to this... only 3 cars showing up is kinda - no, it IS sad...

I can probably get time off to go. My buddy goes every year and he always tells me there is a really low turn out of the newer impalas.

^^^ Hell yeah it does!!! I was honestly kinda bummed that only 2 others showed up to that huge-ass car show at University of Maryland last year, and we're quite a few talking about going.

This is a different story. This is where we should come out and show our love for these cars in person at the biggest and most known GM event ever. Everyone else does, so why can't we???

I am hoping to still make this... but have an issue with the car right now (see newest thread in the 8th gen engine section...), ND have to seriously redo my suspension again (FML...). I am gonna be seriously pissed if I can't make this... and I it is starting off bad, since I will be missing the Pig Destroyer show in NYC this Friday too... not happy...
