Just a reminder of tomorrows Swap Meet.
No reports from the meet so far, so thought I'd post mine.
Seemed like a lot fewer vendors this year--could be the extremely hot weather the day before scared folks off? I found some nice stuff, but it seemed the pickin's were a little lean--although if I wanted an early chassis, there were a few to pick from. Could be I'm getting more particular about what I still need! I did get some nice '25 front fenders, one for Barney's drivers side, as the inside apron is broken & this fender matches the patina & was cheaper than me taking time to have mine welded etc.
This year I did not have a piece of Pie--but in my defense, I did partake of a very good Apple Fritter! Stopped at a Barn sale on the way home and bought four leaded glass doors from a craftsman style cabinet that had been dismantled because of termites (AAUGH!!). This will likely make it into the side panels of my music room entrance. So, Linda & I had a good day--also ran into some T friends, including Jay (next year I need to wear a "Forum Name Tag" too!). Erik B. and his Dad were there & we had time for a short visit too.
If ya lived nearby & didn't go, I think you missed out. If you lived a long ways away, well, hmm--depended on what you were looking for!
Oh, and the Pizza in Penn Valley on the way home was excellent too!
I'm glad I didn't go. It's a long drive from LA!
This is the first year I can remember that all the spaces weren't sold out. All's I can chalk it up to is that the 110 degree heat the day before the meet kept people away. Even as such I found a number of neat Model T items to add to the collection. I would have posted pictures but when I went to use my camera it became evident that I senior moment-ed out and left the memory card at home stuck in my computer, oh duh!
Been there done that, Its even worse if you run down to the drug store for a new chip and forget to take any pictures when you get back.
SENIOR MOMENTS ARE GREAT.
