Yeah, that is weird there's no threads.
Well, I be going fo' sure.
john hasn't been on here since the middle of march. he's always brought it up in past years. i hope everything is ok.
i got postcards in the mail about the show.
I'm going, great event , loved it last year.
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.
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.
Just ran the fallout today. We will convert it over to street trim and drive it out next week. See you all there.
Me, and the rest of the Lucky Stiffs, will be there again this year.
I will be at the gate all weekend as usual.
I'll be there in my 59 BelAir.
attention all you swappers:
i'm looking for a pair of 40 ford 16x4 wheels.
maybe we can do bidness
I will be there, not sure what I will be driving cuz I'm still working on things.
...bringin this 50's era sunvisor, measures 54 1/2 " mounting point to mounting point on driprails, very nice with stainless front & center trim,...$275,...look me up at the swap gate.
be sure to take pics & post here
if your luck runs out, you will see me there
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?
tomorrow. all the weather stations calling for 50% chance of rain most of the day.
Rick , so are you saying its 50% roadster weather then? I will be there with my roadster and 50/50 rain in the morning only. Alway a cool show and one of my favorite of the year....
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.
last look at weather shows it improving. best chance of showers around 11:00 but it looks cloudy and breezy the rest of the day.
How has the turnout been when the weather is rough in the past?

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.
So it rains a little, at least it will be in the 70's!
Sending good vibes out.
That’s good to hear, itll be my first year, I’ve got a long drive ahead of me, so Id better get moving!

Just got home, got there late, turn out reflected the weather forecast. Got one roadster pic before it started to rain. Rained most of the way home.
Goodtime! here's some pics:
Post some later...
