I'm going.....surfin for M5 Stude parts
Did I read beers?!! Chris, shooter and Harv. we should meet up. I'll be in town for work and pleasure. Heck, I'll buy the first round.
The swap is my vacation. . . every year.
I'm goin', looking for 57-60 F100 parts. Particularly a chrome 60 grille
Ah yeeees. Look for us outside and to the North of Hall D and to the East of of Hall E.
I have a god amount of gas station memorabilia for sale and some old tin for sale too.
Call my booth the $20 dollar booth.
I have 100 items for sale for $20.
done. let's do this.
BUT, first the Portland Roadster show this weekend at the Expo Center.
I will be there all day Friday for swap meet weekend.
Sorry ... Posted weather forecast was for the week before the swap meet. Its still a little early for the 7-10 day forecast.
Stay tuned though.
I will be there spot 1705 Mac
Thats perfect! Of all 30 swap meets Ive been to at Portland, the couple years that had sunny weather just seemed to suck. Is it just me, or does a little rain make this swap meet more enjoyable?
So who am I hitching a ride with?
we will be at the track space 6067-stop by for a beer--no car parts--but some very cools stuff for the garage--restored/and unrestored gas pumps---signs--oil --soda signs of all kinds--staying till sat-- also buying--so if you guys selling gas pumps were looking
see you there--also some vintage bicycles
Is that you Ruben????
Be there Friday and Sat....28 years for me..Would'nt miss it..
I cant EFFIN WAIT!!!!! lookinf for thisis and thats for my 54!
Haven't missed one since 1978
If I am home I will be going. Lived here 6 years and herd a lot about this meet hope to make it this year.
Anyone want to get together on Saturday for lunch?!
Me and some buds have about 8-10 stalls right in the middles of the 7000 area.
God I hope this rain passes by then. I'm going to just bring a few big items so I can walk the swap meet for a change instead of baby sitting my stuff.
I'll have a bastardised 28-9 model a body and a really rough model t coupster body. stop by and say hi we always have a few illegal beverages
Would you guys mind keeping an eye out for this truck or possibly parts from it? Was stolen from me up by The Dalles 10 years ago and never recovered. Last 4 digits of VIN are 9200 in case a clean, painted A-bone chassis is being sold. Thanks!
I will be there for sure....need some "goodies" for the T of course and for my Falcon.
That sounds like fun, I'd be up for it
I'd be up for lunch...where and when did you have in mind?
that will be me--

My buddy and I go every year, I was thinking maybe just grabbing some tables in the food court. not the best food but anything is better in good company.
Also, dont forget about the 12:00 noon meet up on Friday. Hall E in the EAST lobby. Hope to see you all then!
My mom, dad, brother and I will be inside Hall E, stalls 4431, 4432 & 4433. Come by to say HI and dry out for a bit.
Monster, will you be there the whole weekend? I will def come by on saturday if thats the case. look forward to meeting some of your ugly faces. haha
That works for me!
I will certainly drop by...took Thursday and Friday off for a 5 day, Swap Meet weekend of awesomeness
Anybody going to the swapmeet from Bakersfield? I need a HAMB relay from there. I could kick in $50 for gas!
Let me know,

i'll be walking around the Expo center and PIR on Saturday and maybe Sunday, pulling both the wee kids in a metallic red radio flyer.
last year i did the entire expo center twice and the race track 1 1/2 times in one day pulling that wagon, with my 4yo daughter. this year i'm doing it with her and the 1.5yo. should be interesting.
TRYING to keep in mind "I'm only looking for model A parts this time"... but i'm sure i'll leave with tons of other stuff, like every year. SBF, harley stuff, anything shiny. the highschool kids that carry parts for $5 make it too easy to buy more stuff...
so if'n ya see a thin bald white dude guzzling coffee and pulling a couple kids around like a pack mule, that might be me... gimme a hollar, the name is Dan. if i can manage to get beer through the gate again, there's one in the cooler with your name on it if'n you're a HAMBer...
This will be the first year that I will be missing it in over ..... allot of years. Moved to Minnesota in January. I'm hoping for some big swap meets here.
i plan on going down have no idea what im looking and i dont know anyone
Hmmm???? You must be fast to squeeze 5 days into 4 days!
