    I'm looking for a 55 chevy 2 door post, maybe a 57 2 door hard top.
     
  4. Bringing my '66 Studebaker Daytona for the car corral, a pair of '53-'55 Stude coupe doors, maybe some 5 on 5 15" nice slot mags, some tools. Coming from dry, rust-free Albuquerque, NM in search of a buyer who would like a nice, unique musclecar and am searching for a driver or project in the traditional hot rod vein - no rat rods. Also in search of a Taco or similar minibike. Fortunately my buddy lives a few miles from the event so I gotta place to stay, some cold brews, steaks on the barbie, and a garage to secure the car.

    I haven't missed it in 18 years. Unfortunately, I might not get to make it until Saturday. I usually hit it Thurs or Fri. I know a lot of people leave on Saturday, but is it a ghost town?

    Can anyone tell me if its possible to camp overnight outside in the parking lot if your not a vendor? I've got some things come up and was thinking about doing late afternoon Friday and early Saturday. I got no prob staying in my car. Its just a long drive back and forth and wanting to maximize my time there.

A small sample: pickup bed, 'A' rear lid for coupe, starters/generators, headlights, carbs, 60hp alum. heads, old elec and vacuum fans for interior, sparton/claxon horns, '34 hood sides(nice), banjo steering wheels, gauges, very early tube radios, '32-'34 frontends, F-100 emblems, wire wheels, cases of model A champion spark plugs, '30-31 coupe glass, Ford tools and so much more I have not loaded or seen till Monday for the last load. Check it out @ ave. 7 & 8 spcs. 770-773. Thanks HAMB :cool:

    Be there Saturday... looking for skinny slot mags, FE fenderwell headers, some pie crust slicks, among other misc drag parts. I'll probably come home empty handed, but it's worth the trip. Wish I would've planned better to sell some of my goodies.

    Dying to find a 56 Chev 4 door - no love in New Braunfels this weekend.

    However, I did see a pretty cool bunch of bees stuck to a vendors space :)

    Way to go Ken! Just got back from there. Was looking for your trailer. You should have no trouble selling that stuff. Especially if the body parts are in decent shape. Jill and I are heading to New Orleans for the weekend so we won't be back out there but hope you have great sucess out there!
