For some reason I got a 1998 Acura integra with a bad head. I spent my swap meet money on garbage for it.....Should be a good return when it sells....but I won't be there....
Unfortunately I have to work! Of all the weekends not to plan to have off. Hopefully you guys find some good stuff!
Yupppp ! draggin wagon.
Heading out the door right now.
Ill be there. Wanted to bring My 50 Merc to sell but didnt get it done. Next spring Ill have the 40 ford coupe and the 50 merc both ready to sell. Fed
Went today, and it was a pretty good one. For once, I got exactly what I was looking for, for little to no fuss...
saw a chunk of sheet metal on the side of the freeway on the way there,
took the next exit and looped around to pick it up.
pretty decent Model A rear fender with very minor road rash.
while making the first loop at the swap I come around the corner and there is a Model a chassis complete minus one rear fender.
turned out I knew a couple of the guys with the stuff,
wouldn't have mattered, he got his fender back regardless.
bought a set of '50 Merc wheels, chromed with rears reveresed and old white walls on all four, nice fitting old Port-A-Walls on the inside of all four too.
Those 50 merc wheels were bad ass ,those wouldnt have been there long hadnt you turned around if you know what I mean. If you want to sell them let me know A buddy of mine is looking for a set like that for his 36 cabriolet
Saw lots of pals and I bought some good junk. 34 dash, 32 K member, F-1 crossmember, 34 front bumper braces, juice brakes, 47-48 wishbone, some early SW gauges...One of my favorite meets of the season!
I saw those and wanted them, but they were already sold, Damnit!!
I did manage to pick up a $150 Allen distributer machine, i belive it musta been sold around '62, otherwise nothing really good
I've heard about this meet a number of times and was finally able to coordinate one of my visits with it this year. This is a huge meet, spent 6 hours just walking through it all. Picked up a few parts, also seen some good deals. This was the first swap meet my girlfriend ever went to, and she enjoyed it.
