    Rustyl, like to see the poster or schedule of events for this years show. I have wanted to attend for years but have had conflicts in my schedule, but this year sure I will be there! Jim
  5.'s the flyer for this year's show, far as a schedule the gates open at 6 AM for everyone, cars, swappers & spectators,...we have a live band that plays usually two sets starting at about 10-11:00 AM,...the Belvedere High School engine team tears down an engine and re-assembles it twice in the day,...if you arrive early you won't miss anything. If you want an event shirt, I recommend that you grab one early as they usually sell completely out by early afternoon....hope to see you there in June.

    The swap meet part always makes the show for me, both as a buyer, and a seller. The rides in the show and all the other activities are icing on the cake. Gene

  7. yup, the Scrap Drive is well-known for it's swapmeet ,...we try to keep the parts from the 60's and older. The show actually turned into a swapmeet with a car show on the side.'s pics from 2009...

    I think the scrap drive is hands down the best show of the year . It’s such a laidback show and run by a great bunch of guys plus a great swap meet and carshow. The scrapdrive reminds me of the Hunnert Car pileup days . Bunches of friends meeting new friends with Hotrodding in mind having fun.
    This is a must go to show for those who have not been to it.
  9. ^^^John,...Thanks a bunch for your comments, means a lot to us....our show grows a little more every year even with crummy weather,...the guys who support our show are diehards,
    ...this will be our 13th show this year, the Pileup only went 10 years,...we have no plans to stop putting on our event....our show isn't as big as the Pileup got, but everyone seems to like it,...we've heard very few complaints in 12 years....and it's one of the cheapest shows to attend either as a car entry, swapper or spectator,...something we are proud of also.
    ...we also donate several thousand dollars to the Belvidere High School auto shop classes and other not for profit charities.,...a few years back we donated $1000 towards the Boone County Fairgrounds grandstand rebuilding project....without all of your support this would not be possible, should all be proud of that.

    How much does a swap space cost? If I remember correctly, it is quite reasonable. Probably why the swap gets bigger every year!
    loudbang likes this.
  17. Aboner, it says on the flyer above,..swap spaces for vendors are $10.00 per space, that includes the driver, if you have passengers/helpers they pay the $5.00 spectator fee. You get all the room you need for your swap stuff.
    ...we do have some inside spaces but are more $,...these are usually sold out early every year..'s some pics from 2016,...we honored local sign painter/pinstriper Tom Wojahn from Rockford Illinois, here's a couple of his cartoons,...and the event shirt,...sorry, no pics from '16 show...

    one of my favorite events! Put on by a great bunch of guys. I have never missed, but you need to get there very early if you wish to say hello. I have to get back to work! Thanks to the Tin Butchers for hanging in there and prevailing. Even when another club scheduled an event on top of this one.:mad:
