Does anyone have information on the T parts suppliers & venders that will be in attendance at Chickasha?
Thanks, Harvey ...
In the last several years, about the only T parts supplier set up at Chickasha is Ralph Reeder. Many specialty parts guys will be there like the Coilman, John Regan, Berg will bring a few radiators and Ken Meek will be outside of the North Building. Howell will have a dozen booths and bring some new sheet metal. But your question included the words "in attendance" so I must add that Don Lang has hung with Regan and Patterson - although without an inventory for sale. There'll be a hundred Model T parts hobbiest/vendors, too.
This would be a good time for us to list items wanted at the swap meet. I would like to pick up several sets of non-cast end brake rods for late teens to 1925.
Thanks for the info.
I've thinking of attending this year. I know that it is coming up soon, but do not know anything at all about it. Is there any flier on this? I googled chickasha car show, but didn't find anything.
Mike, Try the following link:
Bill Barth is usually there too with lots of T stuff.
I remember buying some new parts from a fellow set up out of a enclosed trailer in the same shed as Cooker tire.I cant remember who it was though
Lang's has been set up at Chikasha every year for the past 5 or more years. You can call them, place an order and get free delivery, plus a complimentary hard time from Trish at 1-800-TPARTS-1
I'm not going, too far away, but I am confused. I found three Chickasha swap meets:
One in March, one in May, and one in October.
The one in March is the pre war swap meet, hence the web address.
The other two are all makes, all years, and are devoid of any Model T parts from my experience.
The one Mack refers to is Texas T and A Parts---Ben Hardeman and family. They are close to Coker.
...UHM... HEY, GUYS!!! I just tried the pwsm link; and my virus program stopped a Trojan!!! BEWARE!
Just type in www.pwsm.com yourself. The site is ok,it must be Tim's computer link.
When is the one that everyone is going to? The good
one. Sorry, I'm confused.
The prewar swap meet is March 19-21,2009.
Better be careful, I just went to that link and my Norton anti virus just stopped something trying to attack my computor.
Yes the "PWSW" is infected. It was okay when I went to it yesterday. But I tried it again today and my virus utilty trapped a trojan virus. So beware.
Someone should tell their webmaster.
19th Annual International Pre-War Swap Meet

"Where the East meets the West"
Chickasha, Oklahoma is located in the center of the U.S. on I-44 just off of I-40 & I-35, only 35 miles SW of Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. It is easily accessible from anywhere in the world. From Oklahoma City, take I-44 (H. E. Bailey Turnpike) west to the 1st Chickasha exit (Exit 83), turn right (west) to The Grady County Fairgrounds (about a mile on your left).
The meet has the largest selection of brass era parts anywhere. It is limited to automobiles, parts, transportation items pre-1945. There is plenty of free parking, and admission is free.
This year the meet will be held on Thursday, March 19th thru the Saturday March 21st, 2009. Gates will open daily at 7:00 am. Swap Meet Venders will be allowed to come in and set up Wednesday afternoon after 4 P.M. No Vending is allowed on the fairgrounds before Thursday, March 20th!
The Fairgrounds has recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. The North Building, South Building, & Junior Arena Building have over 500 spaces indoors with all new restroom facilities.

(Electric is $12.50/day; parking is free) Contact the Fairgrounds for information. The fairgrounds number is (405)224-2031.
The success of the meet has been a joint effort of Joe, Mike & Susie Ersland. Joe has collected antique cars for over 60 years and started the Chickasha Antique Auto Club with the 1st meeting in his living room. His swap meet experience goes back to the 1960's with his involvement with The Lawton Antique Car Club, and their Swap Meet in Apache, Ok. He was an instigator in starting the 1st swap meet ever in Chickasha in 1969.
The Chickasha Pre-War Swap Meet is sponsored by The Old Pueblo Touring Association and is not affiliated with any other swap meet. The swap meet is an annual event that will always begin the 3rd Thursday in March.
