    I'll be there selling as many T body parts as we can fit into the truck. In a black Dodge pickup, we usually try to get on one of the tracks.

    I'm gonna try and be where I was last year.
    South side of the road straight in from the south entrance.

    I liked watching all the traffic to get on the track last year.
    And I was relitivly close to the bathrooms and the food.

    FYI, if any of you guys have a 3spd for a 1948 Chevy 1/2 ton, bring it along
    I've got a buddy who will be looking for a good replacement. And any '48
    Chevy truck parts for that matter.

    Drive safe.

    Jeff

    I was there six hours and didn't get through all of it. Found a pair of '53 Chevy wheel covers for $15 to match the two I already had and a chrome small block oil pan for $20.

    My best purchases were a pair of split '32 wishbones for $100, and a pair of Appleton 112 spotlights for $7. Of course they need work, but man, $7!
