Pate swap meet ended Saturday. (located North of Fort Worth Texas)
There was a lot of stuff there but not much Model T stuff.
I mostly visiting with T friends and some walking the grounds. It gave me an excuse to get out of the house.
Will I attend next year ????????????

Willie: You need to come to Luray Pre war meet. Lots of T stuff there. See the last post on number of vendors. Also, there is another Pre War Swap meet that Sunday in PA. Two meets in one week. Dan

I bought a Model T exhaust manifold nut wrench at Pate on Friday for $10. I resold it to a fellow T-er later that day. Not any more T stuff there than I could fit in the back of my pickup, and I walked the whole thing.

Today our T club did clean up at the swap meet. So I have spent a lot of time there this weekend!

If your looking for T parts at Pate you'll have to look long and closely. It's mostly post war and later. Years ago it was pretty good for T stuff but not anymore.
To much digging and walking only to find a coil or Champion X plug. I started to go since I now have a 63 Ford Galaxie but other things came up.

I was looking for a few T parts, I guess I will have to wait till Hershey.
The reason I go to Pate is that it is about 220 miles from my house, All the rest of the meets listed above are a lot of miles from my house in Texas.

Willie,

There is a swAp meet in Decatur in February or March. It usually has a lot more T and A parts than any of the other local meets.

Thanks Ted, I have been to the Decatur meet a few times in the past years. If I remember right, it is an OK swap meet.

I remember the Pate when it first started, just a small little get together in a pasture. 1974 or 75, if my razor-sharp mind has brought it up correctly....long ago and far far away! I drove my '72 Gremlin X to it. ha

I think it was more like 1978 or so. I was there and we were one of about thirty vendors perhaps right in front of the museum entrance.

Those were the days . There were no computers so the best way to find parts was to make connections with people . I knew people from all over the U. S. A. and the world. A lot of them are gone now but not forgotten . Some of the old timers like me I still see at Chickasha . Lots of T stuff back then .

I often though if the Pate Swap Meet, and other large meets for that matter would offer a area just for "Pre-War" vendors, it might attract more vendors and buyers.
Hershey excluded.......

The old Pate Swap Meet, at the museum in Cresson, was wonderful. After they moved it to the speedway, the magic was gone.
