After a late start with Martin Vowell/Wife Jodi. Big wreck on the 405. We got down there about 12:30. Some of the vendors were packing up. It was all good Didn't need anything. I'll have a separate thread with club notables.

The lowered Willys brings up the question I've always wondered about. Why have a 2WD Jeep?
Dunno Steve, Many Jeep Cherokees were sold as 2WD. Guess the Yuppies wanted something rugged looking with out getting dirty
I don't think that Willy's started out 2WD though...did you look under the hood...I know there is a motor in there someplace, but you'd be hard pressed to find it with all the chrome.
Four wheel drive vehicles for the most part are almost never driven in four wheel drive.
The Willys was a strong economical car. Many were bought for the fuel economy.
Was the Kit Kamper teardrop trailer for sale?
Mike, no idea
I hope the guy driving that TT knows where that bicycle is!
That's his wheel chock.
Mike, that kit teardrop was there last year and not for sale. The guy did a nice job on it.
I did make this meet. A big thank you to all that made it happen. I missed the one about a month ago as I didnt see and info about it. So can someone post when and where the next one will be. My buddy and I try to make them all. We need to empty our wallets some where. Thanks, Scott
What's sitting under the middle of the truck?
Bottled water. Scott
Looks like a case of water (clear plastic "case")
We're in a drought here!
"Real" Model T guys like a little used motor oil with their water!
Boy, I hope someone has a few more pictures to post. These are from late in the day after most everyone had packed up and left. It was really packed with vendors and shoppers for several hours. A really good meet, I think. A long line of vendors were waiting at 4:30AM, and by 7:00 over 160 vendors were set up and going strong with what must have been 1500 to 2000 shoppers. I was kept busy at the front gate and didn't get any shopping time in myself and no pictures either. Someone please post some more pictures.
Sorry Jeff, we got there late.
George in L.A.
That's OK George, I heard about your adventure in getting there. I just hope that someone else got some pictures of when it was really rockin'. It looked like a day at Disneyland! People everywhere! I had intended to take some, but was kept pretty busy all day working the meet. I didn't even get ant shopping / swapping time in.
Well,this thread is about swap meet photos...how about some?
Perhaps some interesting parts. Not interested in seeing more model Ts at a swap meet...especially a puke green Willys.
Crunched some numbers here. Last year I averaged 14 MPG. Trip to Huntington Beach for RDR's memorial was also 14mpg. This time with two extra people in the car and late morning stop and go Sat.morn. traffic I got 12.3 mpg.
It seems some of us were obsessively looking for that piece of NOS unobtanium and forgot to take any pictures. I'll make a point to take some next year.
