    The 32 3W was bought at the January Turlock swap meet. It was on its way to a new owner via the LARS swap. They had a price of $48,500 as I remember at LARS. I do not know if it sold or went home.
  2. I agree 100% ! My father and I traveled from the east coast and will again.

    We have been going to this show for about twenty years when we first started going the spectators had to park by the swap meet so for about the first 10 years we never made it in to the actual roadster show their was so much to see between the cars in the outer lot and the huge swap meet we didn't make it inside. But as you can see even with the numbers down it's still one of the greatest shows on the planet.

    Fortunateson, I did not remember this 3W to be a B. However, all 32 3Ws were Deluxe cars and came with cowl lights.

    They also came with Cigar lighter, dome light, ash tray, glove box. Only 32 with chrome windshield. Safety glass in ALL the windows. The longest body of the year, that is why the notch by the gas tank filler. 2" wider than the 5 window inside.

    Great pictures and great perspective. The entire hobby is aging - cars, parts, owners, etc. If we don't continue to embrace and support it, it will die.
    Thanks for the post.

    Guaranteed good times and parts. I always run out of money within the first two hours.
  14. I wish we had a swap meet in the north east that resembled that. I would spend all weekend at it checking out everything and buying parts. Instead we have guys selling broken weed whackers and other junk.

    How are Hershey and Carlisle nowadays? They both used to be pretty incredible. Admittedly not as hot rod-focused as the LARS, but it seemed like you could find almost anything there.
  16. Did not know!
  17. Hershey is still great and my favorite.

    Been a regular attendee for most of the last 20 years. It was definitely smaller than recent years, swap by a little and the show area by a lot. But I was still able to spend all my available funds pretty quickly Saturday morning. Hopefully the new show operator gets the kinks ironed out as they move forward.

    This Hershey will be 48 in a row for me and it is the swap meet I judge all others by. I've been to LARS twice and had a good time, but it really wasn't what I thought it would be based on all the magazine coverage over the years. Asking prices were higher at LARS, more variety at Hershey. I'd like to hit a swap meet in the Mid West just to see how things are. Bob
