Lots of venders, lots of people, prices from very reasonable to very unreasonable. Not a great deal of T parts, better assortment of A parts but mostly newer muscle car era.
Did run across a new A supplier and in Kansas. A-Z Model A Parts - Zanes, in Glade, Ks. They use the US postal service as much as possible to hold down shipping cost. Priced pretty much aline with Mac's.
It was good to go once.

I went to the Turlock Swapmeet a couple of weekends ago. Almost no T stuff, more A stuff (lot's of new A hotrod stuff) and mostly 50's and newer American iron. Hundreds of vendors, even more people, wide spread on prices.

The old timers said 15-20 years ago, it was 90% A's and T's. Not anymore. Like you noticed, it was good to go once.

It was a 300 mile drive each way, luckily I knew that I was picking up a set of four NOS reproduction '15 fenders, so the trip was still worth it.

I usually find a few things worth bringing home. This morning's haul included a two-cylinder brass tire pump which will be an easy restoration, $20; a bunch of small wire brushes in various sizes for cleaning out hard-to-reach places, and a few other small tools, $20; another #1349 hub cap wrench, $1; and a pair of New Day timers, $3 (no, NOT the dreaded "S" type).


I didn't buy this, but took a picture for show & tell. I've heard of these, but I think this is the first one I've seen.

Steve, I tried to get everyone to send me the "S" timer but no takers! I don't think I'm ever goin to wear the one out that I have as it has over 6k on it and still looks good. KGB

I went to Turlock. I found a nice 26 coupe deck lid and my buddy found a very nice T pick up bed. There was a lot more T stuff this year than in the past few years. Very few empty vendor spaces this year. I was very happy with my finds as was my buddy. I will be back next year again, Scott
