    Looks like a great time had by all. We too had a very nice time. Burnt to a crisp but many bargains to be had. Scored a real cool old aluminum cooler, a Murray pedal car for cheap, couple small 409 parts and went out for fish fry afterwards. Couldn't ask for better weather this weekend for Iola. It was beautiful yesterday

    The white Studebaker Hawk was parked right behind my Chrysler 300-L in the car corral. I sold my Chrysler on Friday, and the lady with the Stude sold it as well. The Hawk was a super rust free original paint car.

    Came back on Saturday with my dad, walked around for a while, bought some trinkets and got out before the rain hit. Was a good time, have been to every one since I was 12 years old.

    Ok, we stayed today (Saturday) for half the day leaving at noon. It has been fun. I took some more photos. First photo is my neighbor Brian who is a 57 Olds guru and quite a swap meet vendor from Minnesota. <center>

    Then later Saturday nite we went with Bobwop to a very cool cruise in at Gus' Drive Inn at East Troy, WI where the weather was nice and the food and cars were too. We took the back country roads about 35 miles at full throttle in the red Dart GT that Bob owns. It was a good nite. <center>

    Cool, I saw you driving that phaeton and really liked it. I just didn't know who you were. Wondered if it was a Hamber.

    I'm glad I finally got to meet povertyflats. What a great guy. It was a blast hanging out with him, bobwop and lawrence. All I can say is bobwop and povertyflats are always so RIGHT. lol Thanks for the entertainment guys. Thats a friend in the pic with me. His name is John. We left Dad up at the swap so he could sell bumper cars and pop coolers.

    I had a great time hanging out with tub in da dirt and crew on thursday nite. Thanks for the beverages. Our neighbor at the next swap space wants my T touring, so maybe I will need an A phaeton if I let the T go.

    Great post. I really like those Oliver tractors. Lots of style (for a tractor). I really wanted to see the Olds that Bob flipped.

    Those Olivers can really pull too. By the way, Bob took 2 first places that day in the pulling competition. We never took any photos of the Olds he bought and sold but it was cool and a low mileage Montana car.

    A prime example of how many booths there are. I was there and you pictured some things I did not see. Including your sign. 1 day is just not enough!
