    My dad's family was from Cartersville. I was there once in 1966.

    Good job supporting the veterans and good luck.

    Gas Man, Seems like Cartersville is becoming the place to be when playing with Old Cars. I lived in Adairsville for a while and still have relatives in Cartersville.
    As Luck would have it, I have moved to North Carolina for retirement and don't get back there often.
    I will get the word out to all of my Old Friends in Georgia. Thanks for the Post and Thanks for Your concern for Our Veterans.................... Jeff

    we appreciate anyone helping get the word out. we are on some websites, ragtopsrunningboards mag.and some others. any of you guys want some flyers to hand out, pm me and I will send them. Our plan is to make this a go to event each month to give gearheads and businesses a place to meet and showcase there products. We will also be planning a 2 day show probably around oct. when the weather is cooler.There is a lot to see and do around our area, museums, lake allatoona and the mountains.

    Well, I am getting exctied, we are 25 days away from our very first swap meet in cartersville, ga. I cannot believe it , but I have had phone calls and emails from as far away as fremont, nebraska, arkansas missouri,the carolinss, even penn. From a big vendor. We hope the weather will co-operate and will be a nice day. I encourage you to call or e-mail me if the weather is uncertain. The ladies of theamerican legion will be selling breakfast, hot coffe, ect. I am overwhemed with the response we are getting. Thanks to all who has helped get the word out. Thiz will be a continuing event through the summer. We will be moving the date to the 3rd weekend in june as we alwys go to bowling green to the nhra reunion. Thanks to all in advance

    Well we are 12 days away. From the first of many swap meets. Just hoping the weather will be decent. We can handle the cold, but not a hard rain. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best

    So I take it that the date is actually the 8th, and not the 11th as stated on the flyer?

    Yes , the 8th. The print shop was looking at jan., and not feb.and a few of the ones with the wrong date got out. Very sorry about that. The local newspaper wrote a good interview about what we are doing for the american legion and how a part of the proceeds will go to them every month. Lets have a good turn out to help support the veterans.

    Have you advertised in the Vintage Mustang Forum?

    Just re-read the rules and see that the "M" cars are not allowed. BUT, if this swap meet can be attended by more people it will help support the entire HAMBer community that is appreciated here.

    Me and my son went and we had a good time. It was a little cold so the turnout was slim but I believe it will turn into a good swap meet. I sold a little. I didn't buy anything but my son bought a couple of chevy emblems and a guy gave him and old Willys add and Paint Chart.

    I will go back probably next month.
    Come down with a load of parts or a pocket full of money to spend:)
