  1. Have a few people I'm meeting at the swap on Friday. Who all is headed that way 4th,5th,6th Feb. Over the last 8 years this has become a tradition for myself and a few close friends.

    A friend and I will have a 10x30 space in the main building. Thursday, set-up day, is when the swap meet really starts! The rule is, no one is supposed to buy or sell on Thursday, but you know how that goes...

    I will be there on Saturday with my pals from Lincoln, NE. I used to take off work on Fridays and go but to be honest, it's just not worth it in my opinion. Hope to see lots of you there!

    I've never been but thinking about going this year since I have a long list of stuff I need for my project. Do you guys think it is worth the 4.5 hr drive from Springfield, MO?
  14. Ya, but pickled eggs and beer gas in a warm wintery vehicle doesn't count! :eek::cool::eek::cool:

    Since I'm a vendor I might be biased, but yeah, I'd say it's worth it. It's a big meet, 2 large buildings with sold out swap meet spaces, and another building with cars for sale. We get buyers and sellers from at least a 6 state area, judging by the people I've talked to at past meets. A lot of parts get sold on Friday morning, so get there Friday, if you can.
  16. Hey John, I need 4, approx. 33-35 V-8 marked center caps in good driver condition for a set of 16" wheels I've got. Are you by chance bringing anything close.

    I'm looking for big, old, heavy, dirty, greasy engines that are complete and turn over. Nothing newer than 1969 but prefer much older....
