Steve Hammatt's recent Hershey post reminded me to start this thread, where folks can post what swap spots they have reserved for 2017 Hershey. If you know a light pole number near your spot, please post that as well.
I won't have a spot, but I will be printing out a map of each field and marking them up to highlight each of the Model T vendors and sellers and using it to guide my wanderings.
Thanks for doing this Mark. Our spots are GAG and GAF 27-28 (Green field) with lots of T NOS stuff, V8 Stuff and restored stainless trim. I have several restored and tested Stromberg OF carbs as well as several restored and tested Holley NH Straight through carbs. Thanks again : Bruce
The Coil Doctor and Dave's Restoration and Machine are in a new site this year. We are in the chocolate field spaces C4R 44-45. Please stop by!
Stop by and visit me at GCC 5-6. Thats just sorta across from the crab cake vendor over by Giant Center. We're just a few steps from the AACA merchandise and membership spots there. This year I promise I'll spend more time at my spaces as I'm trying to mend a broken leg. Probably won't be walking as fast and furious looking for goodies so this is your chance go get ahead of me this year. Just bring me some good old spark plug for my collection. Will have smaller selection of stuff than usual but still will probably bring some interesting brassy stuff and automobilia as well as the usual T items. Having a goal like Hershey will help me mend the leg. Stay off of ladders. Ask me how I know.
Hi Fellows, I'll be at C4T 32 in the Chocolate Field, should have some T and Speedster stuff. I haven't had time to start digging it out yet. Stop by and visit, always have some extra chairs for sitting!
I've been thinking about this for last couple of years. So with more and more smart phones, I think it might work. If you need a "REALLY RARE" part, place an ad in the Harrisburg Craig's wanted section the week before Hershey. And as the word get around the seller can contact you with there space number.
The MTFCA spaces are C4Q34 to 37. Stop in to renew your membership, buy club clothing, meet MTFCA Directors, sit awhile & rest up, & get a bottle of water to quench your thirst. We'd like to meet you and talk about your Model T!
BTW, the MTFCA Club spaces are in my name as I'm a member of the AACA also.
Lang's Old Car Parts will be in their normal spot in the Red Field RCF 38-43 AND RCG 38-43. Again we are only bringing preorders and lots of good used parts.
So if you need something to pick up order before Thursday September 28th. Otherwise stop by and visit and check out the NOS and used stuff.
Tuesday bump! Wish there was a way to make this thread a temporary "sticky"
Early coils and parts; will have most of my line of new items there along with a good selection of original parts. Lots of transmission stuff. I will be there all week.

A reminder and revision (by 1 space) for the new location of the MTFCI tent. It will be located on spaces RCM 23-25 in the Red Field, just 6 rows down from where we were located (across from Lang's) in previous years. Be sure to stop by to say "hello" and meet and talk with the Officers, Directors and Staff. Also, this is a good opportunity to renew or establish your membership, which will include the current or past issues of The Model-T Times magazine, consider a lifetime membership, and peruse our Model-T apparel and accessories.
I will be at RSC 13-18 red field behind the old stadium. High compression T heads, High volume outside oil lines, Misc T parts and some NOS rear 23-25 coupe fenders. other great T parts
Isn't it amazing that the old car hobby in general and the Model T in particular can still attract thousands of guys that can't wait till Hershey each year to re-connect with the dozens of car buddies all anxious to find that elusive part as well as visit with friends. I've had four Model Ts in the last 20 years and each tome I sold one, I promised myself that never again would I get caught up in another......well after a few years of being "T- less" each time, the bug came back (three times) and I'm glad it did. I started in the late 60's doing Model As, moved to Thunderbirds, then Mustangs followed by early V8s and finally back to the good ol' "T". Nothing better than owning a piece of history that you can enjoy and share the experience with others, and this forum is a major reason that this can occur. See Y'all at Hershey. Cheers : Bruce
Frequent Forumers meet and greet Wednesday afternoon 3:00 at the MTFCA stalls Chocolate C4Q 34-38.
I have an original "Retail Buyers Order" dated June 14 1919
for a Touring Car The price of which is $525 and delivery charges of $21.05 and a required $25.00 deposit. the bottom of this document indicates that a war tax of 5% has been levied on all automobiles amounting to $21.66 (? the math)
The number 2968414 is hand written on the back and I can't help but wonder if this could be the engine # ? If you have an interest I'm at C4F-19-22 in the Chocolate Field North by light pole 45.
