Some year you should have us bring our truck and sell pie for whatever your designated charity is. www.cocopieco.com It would be a hit!

Mike, please come down, if you're in Washington, it's not that far & we could have a pie eating contest! I love pecan pie!!!!

I'm bringing a truck and trailer load of A an T parts. I see Smith and Jones are coming,they had a good display at Charlotte. I talked to some car guys in Luray a month ago and someone in Harrisonburg yesterday. ...they knew nothing about the swap meet.
We all need to post on Craigslist sites and Facebook car pages letting people know of this event.
Also there's a roadside BBQ stand across the highway that's VERY GOOD!

I will be at Luray.
If you ship your coils to me now for rebuilding I can deliver them to Luray thereby saving you the return shipping cost.
If you bring your coils to Luray and give them to me for rebuilding I will return them to you with no shipping costs.

I went over the ridge to the Luray meet last year. I have never enjoyed a meet as much as this one. Everyone was laid back, enjoying the beautiful weather and making all visitors feel like long lost friends. I was wishing for another meet in the fall. Real Southern Hospitality!

I didn't need any parts for my 3 T's or my A but still came back noticeably lighter in the wallet! This year I'm coming with more money!

So, if any of you reading this and are undecided whether to come, come! You won't be sorry!

Tony

I picked up some nice T items today to bring. I have to remember there's a load of nice windshields for T's waiting for me to pick up.
Have 2 Aux. Transmissions coming also.

Take the time to come to Luray, Virginia.. May 19-21, for the Mid Atlantic PreWar swap meet. The Shenandoah valley is incredibly beautiful and you can make a full weekend out of the trip.

The Luray meet has potential like no other for forum members. It evolved out of an idea from the Shenandoah Valley Racket -"T"ers, club and is primarily for Model T parts. Plus, it comes at a lean time of the year when there is very little Model T activity. So it's perfect.

Although this meet is in it's infancy, it's already off to a fantastic start. We have about 30 vendors coming from 9 different states. We all know that Hershey started with only 8 vendors. Look what it became.

So come to Luray and be a part of the transformation as the meet evolves. The Shenandoah Valley Racket "T"ers look forward to seeing you there!

Do many people camp on site?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dennis Fleming on Sunday, May 01, 2016 - 12:39 pm:

Don, I know of 3 vendors going to stay on site. Maybe more. We now have 34 vendors and 52 spaces sold. Going to be a great meet for Model T folks to find the parts needed.

Kudos to the organizers for "expecting" that all vendors will remain for the advertised length of the meet. Few things are more aggravating to would-be attendees than driving all night, getting a hotel room, etc., only to find that 90% of the vendors have packed up and left. Makes a meet look bad to advertise a three day event that turns out to be only two. Or less.

R.V., Are you coming? You're only 300 or so miles away. piece of cake.. :-)

I'll be bringing a '13 Overland 69T, a '14 Model T touring, some brass parts, a bunch of headlight mirrors, a 12-rivet rear housing, some trans gears and drums, pans, heads, etc...

Also, for those interested, that Sunday, May 22, is the Horseless Carriage Club flea market up in Strasburg, PA. I'll be leaving Luray and heading north for that. It's about 3 1/2 hours away.

Does anyone know if dogs are allowed on the grounds? I would hate to drive there from Ohio and find I can't bring my dog into the meet. Jim

Forgive me if this has already been asked and answered, but this thread has gotten long and I didn't see it -- if you can only go one day, what is the best day to attend?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By James J. Lyons III - West Virginia on Monday, May 09, 2016 - 07:31 am:

James.. pets are fine. It's just up to the owner to ensure they are kept in check.

Walter... All days are good, but as can be expected, Thursday or Friday offer a few more opportunities.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Walter Higgins on Monday, May 09, 2016 - 11:08 am:

Thanks James. I wasn't sure if on Thursday only a small percentage have arrived vs. Friday would be at full occupancy, etc. Also, I'm asking this recognizing this event is still in its infancy.
