(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – We spent a large part of all three days in the swap meet area. We were looking for specific treasures and only found a few of the things we needed. We SAW a whole lot of things we wanted. This year might have had the most cars in the swap meet and they ranged from bare bones to ready-to-run.
I really liked the 4100 Chevy stakebed and if I had room for it I’d taken it home. The blue ’58 DelRay was full-on driver with a 454 and a stick. Absolutely beautiful. The dark blue Chevy II wagon was very clean and had a fresh 327 under the hood. All three days there were numerous ’67-72 Chevy pickups up for grabs. Can’t find narrow slots to use up front on your period build…? Two vendors had you covered. The cute little red Willys sedan sold pretty quick, but sat around taunting folks. The largest group of cars for sale was likely the pre-49 stuff. Fenders, no fenders, coupe, roadster, delivery, and sedans were on every row. Most were turn-key and needed little to nothing before enjoying your purchase.
But wait – there’s more. I’ve got one more gallery from the swap meet.
