Yup! Cash and a good pair of walkin' shoes!

From you veteran types. Would you do the PIR first or the convention center?

Also, we know 4280's stalls are 6161-6164, anybody else want to list their stall(s)?

I've been to the meet about 5 times now and have never made it to PIR. I hope to make it there this year. Maybe I'll sneak out of work early on Thursday and walk through it. You know, get a jump on some of the others.

I'm skipping work tomorrow to go. All the good stuff will be gone by the weekend (or so I am telling my wife to justify the day at the swap meet.)

The boy and I will be down there Saturday. He's got a double header (baseball) tomorrow, otherwise we'd be down first thing in the morning. We'll see you Saturday.

Got anything good this year Troy?

LOL! Mine too. I missed 4280's stall though. I found 6161 - 6164 at PIR and the guys there didn't know who/what I was talking about so then I figured out 4280's stall is at the Expo center which I only hit lightly the day before. Not a lot of Mustang parts at any rate. Got an insert for my gas cap and a side marker light. Found a decent turn signal hood but it was gone when I went back to buy it so maybe next year!

I drug my friends from college along. They didn't have nearly as much fun as me lol. But I had a great time saw plenty of cool cars (lots of shelby clones) and met 4280. Good day

Too much Chev stuff. Where were all the Mustang bits I spent nearly the full 12 hours there on Friday. Saw everything at both venues... twice! Met BossBill at PIR. Missed 4280 somehow. After all of that, I spent more money on parking, admission and hot dogs than on car parts! Booo. Oh well. I have a lot of other higher priority work on this Mustang that the performance bits I was looking for. Had a good time overall but didn't bother going back Saturday. Just worked on my car instead!

Motorsports new aluminum pulley set for $90

non cracked headlight bucket with new headlight door and adjustable bucket for $35

Also saw a Mexican 302 short block standard bore for $350 ...pointed out by Troy

68 302-4V w/1.84",1.54" ported , Comp XE268H , 2200 rpm Hughes converter, 3.25 9" w/10x2.5" shoes , MSD box/distrib , RPM intake , 670 Holley , cross flow aluminum radiator , Granada discs......

'69 Mach 1 S-code, 4-speed
'70 Boss 302
'90 5.0 LX Notch

Anybody else check out the dark green '66 A-code coupe? All original, pony interior, 4-sp, factory disks, rally-pac, style steel, very clean, looked like a smokin' deal for somebody at $5995. A refreshing change from all of the $4995 cars being offered at $8995. I was tempted by the '61 T-Bird Sports Roadster at $8500, too- looked like all it was missing were the Kelsey Hayes wires, and I don't care if I ever have to clean another one of those.

I was hidding from you in plan site at my stall, EXPO! LOL

There was one 69 fastback pictured for sale in a book at my stall. Wish my friend would of brought it. May have sold.

Sold half my stuff, paid for the stalls/room, had a good time. Purchased a 65-66 bench seat with new upholstry for $100.00 sold it for $200.00 Picked up a 69 metal hood with a boss 429 scoop glass onto it. Did not sell , have it for next year. Got an offer on my DT250 motorcycle for $1750.00 , Should of taken it I guess. All in all was nice to see and meet some of the VMF crew. Glad everyone took me up on my offer to leave there parts in my trailer/stall. Hope you all had as good of time as we did.

Stalls already paid for next year.
