    Unless I missed it I haven't seen much, if anything, about Pate Swap Meet later this week. Who's going and if you're going to have a booth what do you have of interest that's worth a mention?

    FWIW I'm in the market for a nice set of '30/'31 Ford Coupe rear fenders. If anyone will have a pair there PM me and I'll reply with my cell number so we can be sure to make contact.

    Because of my schedule and the predicted weather, I will be there on Thursday.

    I made out better at Pate than I ever have at a swap meet. Bought a nearly perfect pair of rear fenders for my 31 coupe, a pair of 17" wires and Anglia spindles to maybe start on a FED like I've been considering, a 4 barrel intake for my 241 Red Ram hemi, plus a number of smaller things.

    Had a great time on the trip with 3 friends too. On the way home now.

    We went Saturday and I’ve never seen a bigger mess at Texas Motor Speedway. At the same time the swap meet was going there was a BIG truck show, took over an hour just to get into the swap meet parking area. Hope the vendors had good sales.

  13. Went Sat. at 10am. Saw that long line, turned right at 1st entrance, left at 3 way stop, only 2 cars in front of me.
     
  14. I went Thursday, got there at 9, I was riding a bicycle. Bought a few smalls. They told me to park my bike at 10 am. There wasn't hardly anyone around so that was weird. I have back issues when I walk to far, so I only saw about 30% of it, my back started to hurt so I headed home. They had the vendors REALLY spread out. Way too much to walk.

    It was the weirdest Pate ever and I have been going since 1981. It took 2 hours 8 A.M. to 10 to get from the intersection of 114 and 35W into the swap meet. The Pate Hauling services told me that they sold a thousand more spaces than 2019 and 2019 had been the biggest ever. I had a long list of things to buy, stayed there Thursday and Friday and couldnt find anything to buy.
