    Many people around the world either have never been there, or have not been in years...

    Can you spend a few seconds to share views of some of the swap meet rows, and some things you have seen or bought?

    Fantastic forecast, so we know you all are really busy...but... :)

    Things are pretty well done for today, but here's a shot from my bedroom for the night. Crowd seemed a little light today, but I did sell a few things. I'll try to remember to snap some pictures tomorrow

    Too tired to download pics, but it was a great day. A few observations:
    1.Well attended with few empty spots-there were vendors at the back of the Orange field in spots I don't remember being occupied before
    2. There were also more cars in the car corral and many fewer priced under $20 than I remember (your experience may differ.)
    3. There were fewer Chinese tool vendors than usual-I think vendors were influenced by the total washout that was Fall Carlisle just down the road last weekend.
    4. There were significant numbers of political signs, but all from one side. (I'd just as soon leave politics out of Hershey, just like the HAMB)
    5. I heard numerous foreign languages- lots of Spanish. I saw very few folks I would group as Asian and no African-Americans. That is different from recent trends.
    6. It didn't rain -also different from recent trends!
    7. There were some very cool engines-Fronty Fords, Rileys, a 110 cu in Offy and a new set of Ardun heads-not likely the first originals- but a deal at $30,000.00.
    8.. The Jag XKE is growing on me, even if it's OT
    9. I don't care if it suits AACA, 80's American cars just don't fit my idea of antique or classic cars.
    10. Parking is up to $15 but it's still free admission to the best damn car meet in the world.

    I'm with Pete Titus and am extremely jealous of your haul of goodies. Thanks for all the pics D_Dave although my neck is still kinked and thanks to 5window for your observations. All makes me wish I was there but I'm positive that Titus must have some type of part finding radar to get all those goodies.

  21. Decent pair of 32 tudor rear fenders, nice original but bad chromed 32 bumpers, a nice model B fuel pump (for 90, nice price). Passed up a complete winfield sr for $375 only because I was low on funds and already have an S

    I'm headed there soon, thankful for a nice day after Fall Carlisle was basically rained out. I will try to get some pics for y'all.
