The Denver Model T club is having a Model T Swap Meet it is coming on June 9th at the Adams Fair Grounds. If the meet is successful it is planed to do it every year. If you are tired of walking through nothing but V8 parts and chrome this is your chance to help make a change. Other states are doing it why not Colorado. Vender space will be $10.00 and buyers are free. Food will be available, Every one has some extra parts that they don't need, bring some to the meet and help make it a success so we can have at least one swap meet worth going to. If you don't wish to sell any parts at least come and buy something so venders will come back next year.
For information call Brian Golden at 303-680-3727

I learned yesterday that a large load of TT parts is coming to the Denver Model T Club. The owner had loaded it and planned to take it to Bakersfield but passed away in the meantime. There are lots of TT parts including many TT Ruckstell parts. The owner rebuilt TTs so the parts will be mostly all TT parts. Some other parts that I saw were TT running boards, TT wheels and fenders, and TT Drive shafts. I can't remember it all but if you are building a TT this is your chance to pick up a lot of good TT parts. There is also two TT Trucks but I don't know if they plan to sell them also.

Looking forward to it. Is it restricted just to model t or can you bring other parts from the era

Ned as I understand it They are welcoming other early parts. You would have to ask Brian Golden 303-680-3727. I am sure that the Horseless Carriage crowd would be more than welcome. What the exact cut off would be is up to the Board. I have heard guys say for years that Colorado needs a pre War meet however no one wanted to put out the work to do it.

Thanks Dave. I'll grab some stuff when I am back in Iowa in a couple weeks. I can't bring much as I don't have storage at my place here but want to support things like this any way I can.

You may want to let the board know that there are some active groups on Facebook that they could post on.

Ned,

Thanks for the suggestion about Facebook. My wife (club secretary) is going to do some looking for those groups. If you could PM us a list, we would be very grateful. We also would entertain suggestions for making the meet a great event for ALL.

Thank You,
Terry & Sharon

Terry, I am going to try and send a note to the Model T Ford Club International. If for some reason I can't I will let Sharon know, maybe she will be able to. I know there are a few members of the International in Colorado.

I talked to another guy yesterday that came to the shop for parts. He has a lot of parts and plans to bring a load to the Denver Club Swap Meet. I have been to his place and know he has a lot of very good T parts.

Talked to another guy today that said he plans to load up and come to the DENVER SWAP MEET ALSO. I have been to his place and he has a world of parts. I often use him for had to find parts when I am working on a T. His dad used to be called Mr. T. His son inherited all his dad's parts.

June 9th is not very far off, either request parts you need now or bring parts to make this SWAP MEET GO FOR FUTURE MEETS. I know it takes a lot of effort to mark all you parts, load them go to the meet sell and then go home and unload and put all your unsold parts away, but that is the only way to make the meet work and have it go in future years.

Please help to support this Old Car Swap Meet. Its been a long time coming and should be continued. If there are not enough buyers and venders it will be a lost cause. I have heard for years from old car people that we should have a pre 41 meet in Colorado. This is your chance to support one if you want one in Colorado. I am aware that advertising should have started a long time ago, but we are trying to get some out now.

Gene, I spent the entire afternoon marking parts that I plan to bring to the meet. Boy does it eat the time. I didn't make a scratch on what I plan to bring. I am using six foot standing shelves that a neighbor just gave me when they moved. I will use them to store the parts that I mark until the meet.

Richard: That is a nice looking speedsters. They are a lot of fun but can be cold and wet. I was in town Saturday to the Saturday Grandpa's weekly T meeting with my 16 touring with the top down in the rain. I had a plastic tarp so I stayed dry except for rain in the face. At one time I did 3 speedsters. After a few trips when it started raining my wife told me "if you want me to ride with you any more build a car."

.I probably will not have the 1916 block at the meet , will not have it back from auto. machine shop in time to assemble ...I will bring several non-generator blocks including several Canadian blocks ...these may be easier to title since the numbers probably would not appear on US dmv records ...see you all there ...remember " BE THERE ,or BE SQUARE !!! always an optimist Gene French 970-581-2808

Gene: Thanks for the information. When you get your 16 block back from the machine shop let me know. I am also always interested in Holley NH cores o bowls. If you have any NH cores please bring them to the swap meet. Almost every day I have some one tell me they will be bringing a collection of T parts to the swap meet.

Gene< I will check with you at the Swap Meet about the block. I may be interested if I sell much at the swap meet. Boy have I been taking the time to get a bunch of parts together tag with a price and find the right box for stuff. Come down to Grandpa's some Saturday with the group. I think you would enjoy it and maybe scare up some business for your shop, We congregate at 8AM. Don't forget to bring me some Holley NH Cores or Bowls to the swap meet.

I plan to stop work in the shop and concentrate on loading parts for the Swap Meet. I plan to spend th the next 5 days loading T parts. If any one is looking for any part let me know and it will be on my trailer or back of the my pickup. You may be able to get something you have been looking for a long time and you will not have to pay shipping. Now days sometimes the shipping is higher than the cost of the item, think about it plus it will be fun to look through all the early parts that will be brought to this Meet.

Gene: I must have missed your call. I spent the entire day marking parts and loading them in my pickup and trailer. The wife was not in the house also so we could not answer any phone calls. I should be done in two more days, I was really exhausted and quit about 4PM, I may have to find someone else to haul some of the stuff for me. I hope to start marking and boxing up Transmission drums tomorrow. I may also start loading fenders tomorrow.

Gene, It looks like I have all the parts you wanted. The only item I could not find was a 26 gas tank lid. I definitely remember putting a box of gas caps in either the trailer or the pickup and that there was 26 gas cap in the box. I looked but there are some many boxes of parts I could not find them.
