    I didn't find any posts regarding this swap meet. Wondering if it's a good one or not. I'm thinking there is a post somewhere, but I haven't found it. So besides all the BS about not searching enough is there anyone with first hand info regarding this swap meet? Thanks!!

    It's not too bad, kind of an eclectic mix of actual old parts and general automotive paraphernalia, some old, some repop. Also pretty well mixed between antique, classic and some musclecar stuff...

    I think most Michiganders use it as an excuse to get outside and start thinking about the summer car season again!

    Kinda the unofficial start of the new season. Usually crowded but well worth going just to recharge the ambition and see a lot of old friends. I generally find something I can use and rarely come home empty handed.

    Thanks Guys! I've never been there for this event. We are planning on going down, we're 3 hour north of the zoo. We do go every fall to Nats North. See you all there!

    Huh!,..... I'm about 3 to 3-1/2 hours North... Haven't gone recently. but in all the years I did go, I never left it without at least one or two good finds.... It's a drive, but always worth it for me.

    Turns out I have something to do, can't make it. Damn.
     
  18. I went there a couple years ago with a friend and froze my A** off outside.I also collect vintage knives and went inside and found a couple of great deals.Don't really need anything for the cars but will probably ride up again.We're about 2 hours from there.Looked like a lot of good stuff at reasonable prices.
