    This is the swap meet to attend. Never went away empty handed. This time, will be looking for: '57 Chevy 210/BelAir body side molding, Lokar Ford AOD shifter, late 50's reliable truck, antique toys.
  2. Agree, best swap meet in CA for real car parts. I am flying in to attend and be able to see a lot of my old CA friends all in one spot.

    A bucket list item for me but I'll probably never make it. Been reading about it for many years.

    Its a pain having GNRS on the same weekend and literally being stuck in the middle. GNRS on saturday, Turlock maybe on sunday.
  6. I wouldn't miss it! I'll be draggin' a wagon behind me 'cause I need big parts...a '36 Ford radiator, early Olds speed stuff, and a Chevy manual least.

    See you guys there.

    Easy choice to make if money isnt a problem..................always choose the swap. You can see pictures of the cars at the GNRS later, seeing pictures of parts just isnt the same as buying them. ;)

    Money is not really the issue its more of how long i stay in LA with friends and how much I don't need more stuff in my garage/house/backyard/at friends houses hahaha. Last Turlock I brought home a whole truckbed full of paperweights :eek:

    GNRS - Thursday (set up)
    Turlock - Friday afternoon and Sat morning

    I do it this way every year.
  11. Turlock is a national Holiday, If you get cold, come by row J 60 to 70 an warm up by our Smudge pot. A good time will be had by all.

    The last couple of years have been good, I think last year I even had my jacket off by 10:00 - 11:00 or so.
  21. I'm not going to say what I'm looking for..wouldn't that make it harder for me to get!?
