    About as good a chance as you're probably going to get outside of going to Hershey anytime soon I'd say.

    What are you looking for? Maybe someone's got something they can throw on the trailer.

    Thanks for that. I’m watching the weather but still haven’t made a top for the car. I don’t mind driving in the rain with the car but something to keep me from getting soaked would be nice.o_O

    Still watching the weather. Its an hour and a half ride there or 40 mins to lake Compounce for the swap meet there. Rain in both places but might hold off longer in Fitchburg, we'll see in the AM.

    Just got back home. I don't think it was any where near as large as it was the last time I was there a few years ago. Last time I went there was a line to get in about 2 miles long. This time I drove right up to the gate! Stopped by Robert Palmers site and talked to his dad, but never did catch Robert. Looked for Pat Manta too, but never saw him either! I know Epping was today, so maybe that drew a few vendors away. Didn't find my fenders, but had a good time just the same. :cool:

    Weather held out, this was my first time there & expected it to be larger. I still found some good deals on a few things I needed.

    Hey Man, sorry I didn't see you. I was there selling today. Did really well, but disappointed not to have had a chance to walk around, looked like there were some really nice cars there. Much smaller than the last few years but I suspect the weather report had a lot to do with that.

  18. No rain but it was a cold wind when the sun went behind the clouds. All in all a very nice day put a couple faces to names and talked to some friends and went home with less than I came with.

    I saw you today, but you were wrapped up talking with some people, so I didn't get to say hi.

    The place was hopping today. Here’s a few pictures I took. Ended up scoring a new set of flipper caps for the 40 and a set of headers that I may or may not use. Also grabbed a few magazines and some chrome trim pieces. Excellent day and a killer turn out.

    Had a good time today. Didn't buy much but stopped by and introduced myself to Robert Palmer.
    Also ran into Nick The Bandit and some other guys I hadn't seen in ages.

  25. You chose wisely. Lake Compounce was an absolute joke this year

    mallomike and I left his house before 6 am, good drive up, and the weather held out. ran into a couple buddies and found a model A visor for the 31 project I am working on.
    I saw a 33 chevy hood that someone had modified to fit a '34 ford pickup:eek: .

    Monster, thanks for the update. This was my first time going to Fitchburg, I enjoyed myself. Stopped by @Robert J. Palmer spot, dad was there and talking, did t get back.

    Ran into my buddy @nickthebandit who made his way up from PA , it was great to talk with him and catch up.

    Didn’t get much but got to check out a new event.
