    The 30+ year old Decatur Swap Meet is this week at the Sheriff's Posse Grounds outside Decatur TX.
    The best swap meet of the first part of the year down here. Always busy, always something new and different to see. A nice town, friendly folks, good eats and old car parts, what could be better?
    Weather forecast looks good with 60+ degree days and 30+ degree nights.
    We'll be up there early on Thursday.
    Friday-Saturday is best, Sunday doesn't happen anymore.

    Gotta work all weekend, dammit. Didn't find anything at Conroe last weekend to get my AV8 project started... Guess I'll have to wait for Pate.

    No longer the mud pit, now its the asphault jungle.
    Pate swap meet has been at the Texas Motor Speedway for several years. It's April 25th thru 28th.

    Cars for sale are scattered, Pate is now at the race track and Decatur is this weekend.
     
  14. Still remember going to Pate and paying $20 to a tractor driver to get pulled up the hill to get out of that old hell hole. But it sure was a good ol' swap meet.
     

  15. Yeah, but the 2013 Decatur Swap Meet is still this weekend.

    I'm up here this weekend. I'll take a look around. If you can use an Olds hood I know where there is one in a pick a part. It's the same body style.

    There is a yard here in Springtown that has a few 49-52 cars left in it. You can give Jimmy a call at 817-205-3943. He might have what you need.
