Well, it's that time again. We are loading up for the Turlock meet. I have been threatening for years to give up on it but the family and friends we get together there with prevail upon me to keep it up. Last year was the first time in years I made money at the meet, only because I was lucky enough to bag a pair of 1912 rear end housings and resell them quite well. So there are still T goodies at Turlock, you just have to look. This year will my father and my 40th consecutive trip there, so why stop now?
Come see us at GG59-64 and we'll talk model T's and other stuff. I will have a Long Beach veteran LaRue Thomas Gemsa racing head available for sale or conversation. Fastest pushrod T head ever made. Same as the one we race on the Wild Cherry II. We will also have a brass speedster there at entry level bargain pricing. This is the one we had on the Bakersfield swap meet tour last year, #4. Also known as 4play. Lots of fun for the money. Hope to see some T guys there, come and visit with us.

We will be in building 2 in the corner near the roll up door facing building 1. We will have most of the parts we manufacture available, and a few other odds and ends. Dan

After attending annually since 1970, I just can't make it there any more. Not enough T parts, parking problems and generally too much other stuff. But I miss the valley fog and soggy January atmosphere. Bakersfield and Auburn are my focus.

The last time I went it took two hours from the freeway off-ramp to the parking lot. We were in the right-hand lane so we could turn when it came time, but lots of folks were zooming past us in the left lane, then turning in anyways. No one there to prevent that illegal and selfish move. Every year there's a traffic jam, why haven't they fixed that with some traffic control???

Got back, had a good time. At this point it is really just a camping trip to hang out with other car people and see friends we have made there. I sold enough to pay for the gas and dinner on the way home at the roadhouse. What I did sell went because it was cheap. Only way to sell most T stuff. Best buy I saw there was a 1914 wooden cab pickup that looked real nice, had a Ruckstell, Rocky brakes and correct speedometer. Correct front end and lights, nice 1914 Ca. plates. Tour ready, asking 14K owner told me 12 would drive it out of there. Don't think it sold. No money being spent. Getting hard to justify the six spots I use at fifty buck a pop to park my rig. I am looking forward to Chickasha and Bakersfield for sure.

I've always parked on the old 99 in town. Never a problem, and only two blocks to the gate. Haven't gone for two years now. Hardly any T stuff there any more.
