Scorching today at the swap meet. Only one line / one gate open to enter instead of the usual 3 gates, getting in was a nightmare. I don't feel sorry fro John Buck and his LA Roadsters crew for their ignorance of how to run a swap meet. They could look at the Pomona swap or Turlock to get an idea of how things work. another..... Wristbands are $40 for early Friday swap entry. YET, if you are 2 guys with a rental car from overseas, you can buy a whole swap space for $80, get 2 wristbands and vehicle entry for all 3 days...... So yea, a lot of swap spaces went to rental cars..... Something else I found out today. The LA Roadsters have millions $$$$ in their club bank account. They decided long ago to become elitist and not allow new members so they could spend this money as a small group (they take nice vacations together with the money) and because they are old and don't care about the show so much anymore, they leased it to John Buck for $150,000. John will make his $250,000++ profit in the end. But honestly a lot of people are sad to see the way the show is headed. I mean come on, the club had so much money and that's why they NEVER charged a finished roadster/driver/ passenger to come into the show......that alone made up a nice show. Also - noticed John Buck was too cheap to buy ports-pottys and trash-cans for the show from Fairplex.....so you will be walking a long ways to find these things. Also the old Fairplex restrooms that were at the North end of the swap are long gone !!!
