    the 7th is the first saturday which means the 8th will be the second sunday. that will be the lions car show and swap meet in morris.
    when the hunnert car pile up was in morris, we could hit them both the same weekend since the pile up was always the second saturday in october. this year the first saturday and the second sunday fall on the same weekend. so if anybody is staying the night, you can blast down rt 47 to morris. it's usually a good swap.

    This would be a good show to take your TRADITIONAL, or TRADITIONAL looking HOT ROD!

    Tell a friend or two.

  8. I think you just started a thread!
    Me & my fellow Tin Butcher's are running the swapmeet section again, for you vendors, we have plenty of room, just show up Friday from noon til 5 PM, or Saturday bright and early from 6 AM til 7 AM, as the show cars line up and get in at 8 AM.
    Spaces are $30.00 each, limited to only vintage parts,(pre '65 preferred) etc, ...no new parts or flea market stuff please.

    if your luck runs out, you will see me there
     
  19. Wow . I see them for $350 and 450 sometimes, so I guess prices have gone up.
    I remember when $35 got you a really nice one.
    does this mean I have gotten old?

    why be ordinary?

    john seems to not be able to catch a break with this show. i think it's rained or snowed at least part of the day every year.

    Aren't there any open dates in September for the McHenry County Fairgrounds? October just isn't working out. If there are no open dates in September is the only reason for not changing the dates that I can see.

    Let's not forget to mention the howling wind that always seems to prevail and make it even a little more uncomfortable!:(
    I think each year has seen a growth in cars and trucks, the bad weather mainly keeps the spectator count down.

  27. So it rains a little, at least it will be in the 70's!
    Sending good vibes out.
