Pomona Swap Meet – Here Are All Our Photos Of Cars, Parts, And More From The Final Swap Meet Of 2017


Pomona Swap Meet – Here Are All Our Photos Of Cars, Parts, And More From The Final Swap Meet Of 2017

There is only one Pomona Swap Meet. There are other SoCal swap meets, and some are great like Long Beach, but there is only one Pomona. Walk every single row of parts AND cars and you will walk about 35 miles. I average 20 miles each time we go and sometime get near 30. Parts, cars, trucks, bikes, toys, accessories, tools, you name it and you’ll find it at the Pomona Swap Meet. With that said, 95% of the stuff for sale really is automotive or gearhead related. That’s not necessarily the theme at all swap meets, but it sure is at Pomona.

The other cool thing about Pomona is the party atmosphere. In the car corral there are tons of cars for sale in the first few rows and then the rest starts to get sprinkled with car show and sale cars which means that lots of folks are grilling, cooking tacos, drinking beer, and hanging out with friends, car clubs, and family. It is a real event, not just a swap meet. Our normal non-selling weekend, like this one, starts around 5am at Crosby’s shop loading beer, ice, coolers, and chairs. On a selling weekend we may or may not go on Saturday afternoon and stay all night. Otherwise we just step up the time frame about 30 minutes.

Since we weren’t selling this weekend, Crosby, Jay, and I ran around looking for parts for the dually, hubcaps and air cleaners to feed Jay’s addictions, and anything funny and weird for Crosby to drool over.

    I really miss getting up stupid early on Sundays to go to the Pomona and Long Beach swap meets.

    ” Walk every single row of parts AND cars and you will walk about 35 miles. I average 20 miles each time we go and sometime get near 30.”

    Bullshit. Think about what you just wrote here.

    You should be more careful with your exaggerations, or note them as such because smart people will not believe anything you say or write eventually.

      If I walked every row and not bother with vendors who aren’t selling car parts, moving a pretty fast pace, it took 4-6 hours. That doesn’t include the car corral. I was usually there from 6 am to 1 pm. My legs were like rubber by the time I called it quits.

    Don\’t worry Chad. I share your enthusiasm while trying to take it all in while still staying vertical.
    Pomona is \”Miles of Smiles as You Hike the Aisles!!\”
    \’nuff said. 🙂

    I’ve done many swapmeets along the east coast over the last 35 years but always wanted to do the Pomona swapmeet. This is a bucket list item.

    I’ve learned how to swapmeet at Pomona.I go to Pate now. My new phone at the time had a step counter,I used it for walking and running and calibrated it on the local high school track. The first time with it at Pate I did 12 Miles for one lap,Truck to Truck. The next year I bought more than my wagon could carry and I was at 16 miles.
    One lap at Pomona not including the car corral,I pretty much never shop for cars so I dont even look, was 15 miles. Including the car corral I can see 20 miles easy at Pomona,unloaded the wagon at the truck and you could get to 30 easy. Remember if you dont have a classic and are parking in the spectator area you are about 3/4 of a mile from the gate at Pamona before you even start. Heck I did 6 miles at Long Beach.

    you need to stop teasing all the people who are not on the left coast for swap meets. what you need to do is make sure there is a phone number with the picture that is for sale.

    That red Pantera is owned by a friend of mine and is going across the block at Barrett-Jackson on Thursday, Jan 18.

    So, where does everyone get notifications about when?? I have been in the Los Angeles area for almost all of my 66 years on this planet and never got there. It is on my bucket list now.
    I know……… I am a little slow; ask all the guys that beat me in a drag race.
