    I'm going. Gonna walk on Saturday, sell on Sunday. On the sales block: Traditional rod parts, Metric chopper project, maybe even a utility trailer. Cool shit. I'm normally in the center (intermediate) circle. Stop by and say "hi".

    Stopping in Saturday as we drive to Upper Michigan from 3 months in Florida. It's quite a detour, but sort of a ritual.

    How much stuff can you fit in a Focus? I sort of hope I don't find any treasures.

    Warning! I went out to the swap meet at 6 Sunday morning to man the Torque Fest booth and it was raining and lightning. All but two of the outdoor vendors had left during the night and it looked like a ghost town. Some of the indoor vendors had also left and more were showing up and starting to pack up. I tore down the TF booth and went back home.

    What is left of the quarters? I may be interested if there is enough to work with. I was there this morning and got a couple great deals as there was no one around and the guy was just looking to get rid of stuff. Maybe 15 vendors left at 9:00 when I got there.

    That body was a dog. And that's coming from a guy who's warped on 28-9 coupes. The top is about the only thing that is useable on that body. I hope you got it for quite a bit less than his initial asking price. I didn't check out the box. Hopefully it is fixable.

    The quarters have been cut both along the trunk and straight down behind the roof. Not much left of them really.

    I got a good deal on it.
