I bought a burnt corn dog and a coke for ten dollars.
Anyone know if the blue econoline pickup in the cars for sale area sold or if the price came down from 3500? I couldnt make it back today.
was there today...lotsa crap....lotsa good deals..you gotta hunt for them...anyone going tomorrow.?
Is anything left in there?
We have been having quite a few storm's thru here.
I got my ass soaked loading up after the rain hit. Sold quite a bit. Picked up a few odds and ends for the '50 Sedan Delivery project. Bought 5 perfect early vette smoothie wheels for $100, tail light for $10, accelerator linkage for a buck, old Moon Gas pedal for $5. Traded a buddy a 350 harmonic balancer for a new pair of brake drums. Bought a dual master cylinder from Lucky's, the best little Hotrod shop at the swap meet.

Drove by TMS both ways today, didn't really have the time or the $$$ to stop.
Glad some of you guys found what you were looking for, I didn't find what I needed.
It was really slow all weekend. Never knew people were so scared of a little rain. I sold more on sunday morning than I did all of thursday.
Oh... and someone did steal a rally centercap out of a box of centercaps we had.
this was a great turn out. i'll agree the layout was a
bit rough. saw alot of nice stuff, but nothing i needed..it figures, when you have a wad of cash to spend you never find what you need..but damn if your broke, you find everything you need..
I got a edmunds finned head and edmunds intake on wed.
I got a set of eddie meyer heads and intake plus a v drive wico mag for a v8 60. Gonna have a sweet engine in my midget now!
Cool, those hoods are tough to come by in good shape!
Oh.. did buy 3, 1932 Texas plates. Need to be restored (repainted), but pretty decent over all..was $5 bucks a piece too much????
