    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.

    -32 coupe/sedan header pannel
    - 32 nos sparton ooga horn

    - 32 sedan floor (very nice)
    -32 kingpins
    - 32 original front and rear cross member
    - 32 cowl vent bracket(original)
    - 32 nos worm and shaft that goes inside of the steering box.
    - 32 gas tank
    - 40 ford front drums and backing plates with all internals
    - old shelby bike with a springer front end
    - finned flathead heads

    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..
