    Your not nuts, you DO have bigger nads than I have that is for sure !! Good luck on vending, looks like the decent weather we've been having isn't going to hold out much longer.
    I'm driving down from Pittsburgh tonite (Thursday), looks like the snow is coming in from off shore to the east so don;t know what I'll find when I get there. See you this weekend and if it gets to cold come in and set awhile

    www.automaniashows.com but doesn't say much
    Decent meet for a mid winter event, I drive 284 miles one way to vend there but I sell well there. No "mid winter Hershey" by any stretch, but there some buys there if you look hard enough...I bought nice 55 150 steering wheel there last year for $35 on the price tag and sold the same day for $85...Ranunculus: Hot Rod Starts at 9:00 AM Saturday on Screen 1 Two Lane Blacktop Same Time on Screen 2, Gasser Files from Jackson Bros continuous play on Screen #3 and your favorite Hot Rod Pin Ups on Screen 4, all day long....I can substitute any for Bitch Slap (your Favorite) anytime you want !!

    There is nothing nasty, the only thing I would say is that Saturday Morning between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM it is packed....so packed with people that you almost can't walk around let alone see anything, So hang onto the kid, he gets seperated you won;t find him in the crowd. You may want to consider dropping the wife and kid at the entry before you find a place to park also....they can stand inside as it will be cold.
    There are some benches by the restaraunt where you can set down, If you find stuff and don;t want to carry it you can drop it at my booth until you are ready to leave Moonlight Movies space # 06&07 back portion of building (to left as you enter the gate)

    As this is at a fairgrounds, is everything in the dirt? Indoor fairgrounds makes me think of rodeos and dirt arenas.

    It is inside. However some vendors are on the outside. Pretty much paved but some of the parking is gravel.

    Went yesterday, Friday, and thought the event was good. Takes about 2 hours to cover the heated indoor area. Small outside vendor area but a few good buys. Weather might be an issue today.

    You know I was kind of impressed this year at the varirty of Hamb Friendly parts at Allentown.
    Usually meets of this smaller size are so overstuffed with Die Cast and memorabilia that there are few attractive buys in hard parts....( i shouldn;t be talking as I sell car movies not parts) But this year I saw no less than 10 early ford gauge clusters, decent set of 56 Lincoln wheels covers a decent set of 57 caddy wheels covers, numerous flathead, early chevy 6 cylinder, desoto and early dodge / chrysler hemi intakes, banjo wheels numbered 6 or so, and the vendor behind me sold a really usable 32 grill, and had a headlight bar on Friday. I guess you just never know...people starting to break loose some stored away parts or what I don;t know but there seemed to be some bargains
