Its the ONLY swap meet in Colorado except The Denver club one that has any T parts at all. A couple of years ago one friend of a 90 year old person brought T part that the older person had. The part were on a long trailer used to haul irrigation pipe and was piled high. Boy did the T guys including myself make out good. The was a huge load and cheap prices. Tom Ohirogge always bring a good supply of T parts and his prices are rock bottom, Randy Vanburen brings a huge mix of T Parts at a fair prices. Ron Jackson usually has a huge supply of really good items, the type that are hard to find at a fair price. Another one of my favorite venders always bring a good supply of T hand tools and T shop tools that I stock up on. His price are very, very low. There will be many other venders there with T parts mixed in with their loads.
Be there or be elsewhere huh Gene?

I will be there, I need three Ruckstell housings do you have any?
no Ruckstell housings here … did you see the ebay advertisement in Gothenburg,Nebraska ? down to $1200 or offer … probably 2 or 3 loads of heavy items and a cut down touring … probably all the most common axle housings , but a bunch of heavy iron … would probably have to purchase at way below the asking price to cover cost of getting the parts back to Colorado ...see you at the swapmeet ...always an optimist...gene french
