Every May, the South Shore Antique Auto Club hosts a huge swap meet in Mansfield, MA at the Xfinity Center (also known to locals as Great Woods), which is a huge outdoor concert venue flanked by some seriously enormous parking lots. More than half of that parking area is occupied by vendors, making it the biggest car-related swap meet in the Boston, MA area. You may remember our excursions to the meet in 2016 and 2015, and in last year’s installment, there were rumors circulating that the organizers of the meet were going to pull the plug based on a number of reasons, including complaints from the town. But alas, the meet was back and bigger than ever for 2017! Like usual, we grabbed a couple buddies, hopped in the truck, and loaded up the Radio Flyers to check it out. In typical BangShift fashion, we’ll cut to the chase and go straight to the pictures!
And there you have it; another Mansfield Swap Meet is in the books. This year’s meet looked to be a success, and the crowd seemed to be on their best behavior. Last year, a number of people were giving us trouble for taking pics and being rude in general, but this year it was all good and the mood seemed to be much lighter. Here’s hoping this one keeps getting better as the years go on. See you next year, Mansfield!
