The Pomona Swap Meet is one of those gearhead gatherings that LA area guys take for granted and the rest of the country makes a vacation destination. Seriously, we know people who have traveled to the swap meet from across the country to buy a new project, score parts, or just take it in as a tourist destination. Through the era of eBay, Craigslist, and whatever other online selling service you use this event endures. Guys scrape themselves out of bed at ungodly hours to buy the good stuff, get the good spots, and secure a nice area to slake beers at sunrise and watch all the iron roll in.
We were there and scoured the place for the coolest cars, trucks, and parts. Today we lead off with just those things. Cars and trucks. After all, that is what draws most guys in these days. The weirdo parts are still there but the vehicles that range from basket case project junk to beautiful turn key machines get everyone’s attention.
Drool over them, curse the people that are lucky enough to cruise in from a couple miles down the road, but definitely enjoy the photos!
