Here is a flyer link from the HCCA for the Bakersfield Swap Meet in Aprilhttp://www.hcca.org/events/April-10-12-2014/registration.pdf.
Only one month to go until Christmas!.... I mean The Bakersfield National Swap Meet!
I have a nice set of new Rootlieb 1917 to 1923 Roadster or Touring fenders available for purchase which I can deliver to Bakersfield if anyone is interested. $1,200 for the set of four (2 front and 2 rear. I would have posted the same in the classifieds; however, it has been down for the past week. PM me if interested. I can provide photos upon request.
Got my stall, motel reservation and a pocket full of money. I have not missed this swap meet from the very 1st. As I have stated before this is the very best prewar swap meet bar none. my suggestion get there early and you will find what you need.
happy swapping !!!!!!
Only 11 days to "the Mother of All Christmases", Chickasha, that is.
I need a correct choke stove for my 1912 Torpedo, also a top boot, so far.
Chickasha is a great swap meet for T parts and I enjoy going and seeing many of the forum members every year. Bakersfield is small and can be seen in about half of a day, but for the early brass guy it is something that should not to be missed. Prices can seem to be high but sometimes you can find a deal! About 12 years ago I bought a nice complete 14 motor with transmission for 150 dollars! It had standard cast iron pistons in it and the crank that was only worn .002 in it. If you are into early Brass cars (including T's) add Bakersfield to your bucket list.
Disaster; my wife may not be able to come to the Bakersfield meet with me this year! I guess I will have to make do and go on the Thursday tour before I sell my car at the swap meet! Stop by and see me, just look for the red model T. This year I won't be rushing out of there before noon as I usually do... probably will be there all day and will need help loading up my trailer with "new" treasures!
I bet you can obtain more treasures when the family treasurer isn't on hand!
I don't have a brass but am excited none the less. Have a camp spot/selling space and looking stuff. Hoping to find something for the 26-27 based speedster. At the very least, great checking out of cars and meeting new friends.
Bakersfield is not just about brass cars, there will be lots of parts from all prewar years. 1926-27? No problem, there will be loads of it. I will have a bunch myself. Got a lot of nice wire wheels. There are always neat cars to check out too. Come by and see us.
Erik, Martin and I will stop by and say hi.
