  1. scrap drive design 9 001.jpg ...just a lil over one month til our 9th annual Scrap Drive show & swap on Saturday June 13th. Last year we had over 400 swapmeet vendors and about that many cars, trucks, & bikes. We will once again have the Pin-up Girl contest by Peek-a-boo Pinups and the local Rockford rockabilly band Dirty Fishnet Stockings, along with event shirts, a 50/50 raffle, and good food. All car entries and swap vendors are eligible for one of our 3 cash give-aways where you could win up to $200. Hope to see you there.
    ...the design above is our T-shirt design available in black or white shirts.

  4. ...about 4 weeks now and counting down. ...this weekend there was lot's of talk at the Model T swap in Belvidere about the Scrap Drive,...
    ,,, you will have a chance to win a 57 Chevy 4-door hardtop (running/driving car, 283/auto, Aztec bronze/cream) for $50.00 a ticket,...a group in Freeport is raising money for a girl's home and will raffle off the Chevy to be given away this Fall. They will sell 600 tickets,but not more than 1000, that's at least a one in 1000 chance to win if you only buy one ticket, ..better chance if they don't sell that many. The car will be at our show, be sure to check it out.

  5. a local show this weekend, ran into these fine gentlemen from Peoria, Illinois (sorry, I didn't jot down your names) selling tickets for a chance to win a new homebuilt teardrop camp trailer similiar to this one. The proceeds from this raffle will go to the Wounded Warrior Project to benefit our veterans. They will be coming to our show to sell tickets at $1.00 ea. or 6 for $5.00....hopefully towing in with this nicely done 54 Chev COE.
    As a Not-For -Profit club, Tin Butchers are all for supporting worthwhile causes, hope you will support these guys as well.

  6. ...less than 2 weeks til the show/swap;...make sure you check out the 2 feature cars inside the main building ,...a neat Olds powered Ford p.u. originally built back in the 60's and a real-deal 65 Dodge stockcar.
    ....been getting many calls on the show and swap, looks to be a really good event if the weather cooperates.
