Is it a Mustang swap meet or just a general swap meet?

I'll be there! It's better than Christmas for me. My favorite day of the year.


This car is now SOLD and in Miami FL. I now have a '70 Cuda Convertible - Yeah, with a Hemi.

GENERAL SWAP MEET. But it's a pretty good one that's spread all over the fairground's complex (4 sq.blocks). It usually takes a good 3 hours at a good pace to go thru it and is open for 3 days. Friday is usually car guys and serious hunters. Saturday is family time. Sunday is packing up and heading out as many already have, but its also bargain pricing time.

Last year I pretty much sold out by Saturday.

I don't know about anyone else that attended, but I setup to sell and Friday was the hottest, humidest, stinkiest, most miserable time I've ever had there. Saturday was a little better but by afternoon it got bad again. I really didn't find anything to buy either. If this was better than Christmas, then I'm not looking forward to December at all.

I'll get a booth again next year, but I just may take my car and park it.

I thought that the used parts selection was a lot better this year then it has been in the past. Bought a pair of deluxe door wiring harnesses for my Mach for $10, a clock harness for $3, and a coffee can full of misc bolts, clips, etc for $3. Also found a few parts for my son's 73 bronco and some trim for my brothers 64 F100. Spent almost 5 hours walking around, and felt like I had a pretty good day. Hot as Hell, but a pretty good day over all.
