    It's always a faily decent meet but there are not a lot of older model A parts to be found. A few here and there but lot's of other goodies. I may have to miss it this year. Kids have too much going on this weekend.

    I went to the KYANA swap meet there last March. It was great! How does this fall meet compare?
     

  5. Fall swap is usually not as big as the spring, but it is still a good meet to pick up odds & ends for the winter projects.

    You will likely be able to get in about 9:00. Last year we were there at 8:00 and stood in line for about an hour until they opened the doors.

    Yes doors open at 8:00 vendors get in at 7:00 ,
    It's about 3/4 full this evening, lots of cool old parts, and mid 40's-50's chevy truck parts there was a few vendors with pre 40's chevy car parts,

    I'm taking down another load of Model T and A sheet metal in the morning

    later kb

    I just got back home. Left Indy at 6 got there and walked right in (rained all the way down and back).
    Not as many booths as the other kyanna meet but pretty full. Bought every distributor is seen ( aluminum delcos) but two guys had there "chevelle-corvette" brain cells smoked and wanted too much for them. I pay 5-10 for these..they wanted 50-75 bucks each cause the numbers said chevelle.
    Do you realize how many chevelles were sold in Ky ???? Most of them were blue even...
    Was worth my ride down anyway, picked up a couple cheapie tools for the shop...
