    I will be driving my 1947 chevy fleetline sports sedan. It will be for sale in car corral. I have been going for 26 years straight, rain or shine. The tully fog is bad, if your going in the early morning hours, best bet is to get on 99 and drive in the middle lane, this gives you one lane of cushion on each side of you. My friend has a spot out there, and we will be selling all kinds of chevy accessorries. Hope to see everyone out there.

    I am thinkin' I may need to take the day off. I dont need anything but I always like walking around. I never see anyone I know...I think its coz I am always staring at parts when I am walkin around.

    Wil be buying first, selling second. First time to have a seller space, helps save carrying things too far. Yep bring all types of clothing, never know how good or bad weather will be. One reason a wagon or back pack is good to have. This is the biggest in Northern, Calif. All types of spaces: some in buildings; asphalt; covered; on grass and rest in mud. Know of some guys flying down to GNRS Friday morning and flying back that Nite to be at Turlock Sat morning. Bring lots of $$, never know what you might find there.

    Hey swappers,
    we have two spots, side by side, over in the very, very southwest corner of the swap. we don't get as much foot traffic as the spots out in the big open areas, but our spots do back up against the covered pig stalls. this does give us lots of room at the back of our spots to store stuff. and when it's pouring rain, it's funny how all of a sudden everyone really likes our spots.

    so......if any of y'all buy something and don't want to carry it around all day, feel free to stop by and plunk it down. we always leave somebody in our spot in case we go shopping. usually there's at least 3 or 4 of us in the spots. chili is usually served around noon on Saturday.

    CC98 and CC99. southwest corner along the pig stalls.
    my name is steve and if i'm not there, just mention this note.
    thanks and good swapping!

    Man oh Man! What a day! The weather was perfect, the turn out was huge and there was rusty old car crap as far as the eye could see! I scored a brand new gas tank, a turn signal switch, some weather stripping and 4 new Hollywood Flipper repops for 100 bucks.

    I could not beleive the weather. Shitty and foggy all the way down from Fremont at 5:00 am. Then the weather broke around noon and it was like summer. 60 plus degrees. Was a long wait from 99 to the lot. That was the best Turlock meet at this time of year ever that I have ever been to.

    There was a guy selling T shirts that were printed Turlock Swap Meet Rival
    I would really like to get a hold of him as he has somthing that I could use on a build that I have coming up.

    The weather was perfect as stated above. Scored some cool tools, the missing issue of TRJ in my collection, some cool plates for my daughter (thanks Neal, nice talking to your Dad),and my son found all kinds of treasure too. Good times!

    The weather was great, I was worried it was going to suck but it was beautiful outside. I scored a set of JC Penny Cheater Slicks for $60, an old breather and a couple of shift knobs. The pickins' were pretty slim. I brought along a set of Cragars/red lines and sold those off, now I can stop tripping over them in the garage.

    It was my first time going there.Left midnight Friday got there 7:00 am Saturday.The weather was good.I was a little a dissapointed it is big,reminds me a lot of Pomona swapmeet,high prices and like Muttley said"The pickens were pretty slim".I don't know if my expectations were too high from what I heard over the years or it's overrated.The Fathers Day Show and Swapmeet is still the best in mybook.
