  5. if your a vender sneaking in - entry gates should be open by 7am....Petty drive in the middle is usually open earlier for venders.....the public entries on the west/south at Petty drive should be open that early -7am- for traffic....most venders/people are stirring about daylight....or by 7:30....depending on the previous days sales...

    I'm bringing more cars(drivers?) this year....not sure about my small stuff...

    hey....always need old mags - any Hot Rod Annuals or small mags...?

    pretty sure row 5 - space 656....and then a few more....on the corner...

    Pate was such an iconic meet for the first 30 plus years out at the Pate Museum of Transportation acreage. Dust storms, torrential rain, blazing heat, freezing cold, and every combination thereof, it was more sunny and clear than inhospitable but what times we had there! What deals were made!

    Hi. Driving up Tuesday to help our AACA sponsering club set up the info booths Wensday. That will take care of my required club work particapation for the event & will have the rest of the week to prowl the vendors looking for whatever for my 46 coupe.

    Will be the old coot packing a lawn chair to take many needed breaks as my legs don't hold up for long as they used to.

    I will be wearing tags from AACA, VCCA, Inliners and the HAMB. Say Howdy if you see me.

  13. I still have my round disc space markers hanging on the wall in the garage. They still have dried mud from the rainstorm the final year at the museum. miss those days, mud and all. :(

    I'm going to have my Apache in a car corral spot, hoping to get some cash to build a roadster, or maybe someone that has an A or T project and wants a truck!
     
  17. here's my early spots along the fence line next to the museum grounds and bathrooms/showers...sure hated to sell the Studie p/u but the neighbor at the time always called code compliance when I pulled it out of the garage to work on it....about 1979....there's old blue in the corner.....note mud....moved down to the bottoms after this....

    Any Hambers want any of it just say you're from the hamb!

    Spent the last two days at the Pate Swap meet at the Texas Motor Speedway and came home with this 8-foot tall Studebaker reproduction sign. Got it from a guy makes them out of Oklahoma City, top quality piece.
