    Ok, this story begins as my personal bodyguard/ big Cornhusker farm boy/ and all around pal "gasserlouie" (Larry) from Lincoln Nebraska invited me to go to the Greenfield, Iowa swap meet with him. He has went to it for 30 years and I never had. I love Iowa and swap meets so of course I said yes. I had a big day at work on Thursday came home and packed my bag and left at midnite and headed north to Lincoln. I picked up Larry just before 4 am and we headed East another 3 hours or so and got there when the event opened. It was cool, windy and rainy but we had a good day all around as buyers and spectators. Saturday we were joined by his buddy Frank (GrouchySS) and Frank's lovely wife "Swap Meet Cindy" and spent day 2 going back thru and buying more cool stuff. This was a small town with rolling hillsides full of corn, soybeans, hayfields, and picturesque countryside. Near the bridges of Madison county area. The county fairgrounds at Greenfield is home to the swap meet and it features neat old buildings and rolling terrain which provide good drainage. I'm going to start posting some of my 100 plus photos to show you what we saw.

    On the way home we stopped at this steakhouse out in the country in Nebraska. Larry bought my dinner. It was a HUGE steak. And very good.<center>

    my pal "Stick Shift" and his dad from Illinois. They were trying to corner the market on Ford 94 carbs last time I saw them and had bought a rebuilt 57 Chevy 283 V8 also. <center>

    One of my favorite chicks is the good natured "Swap Meet Cindy" who posed for this very fitting photo. <center>

    Nobody messes with my bodyguard Gasserlouie (also known as Big Stinky) and you can see why in this photo. He looks like a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman with a bad attitude. He is a big help when I am trying to negotiate with sellers. <center>

    Here is "Coolstuff" John who was a vendor at the meet selling DVD of old hot rod movies and posters, shirts, etc. He let us store some of our junk at his space for awhile on Saturday. He goes to a show every week and sometimes more than one. Hardest working man in show business. You might say he is a real Tiger. <center>

    Corn is King in Iowa and Nebraska instead of boring wheat fields like Kansas. This early morning photo was taken right by our motel parking lot. <center>

    No but they were from down in your neck of the woods and will likely be at KC swap meet next weekend.
