CBI's first ever swap meet was a great one with people setting up late in the evening and early morning to avoid the cold weather. Misty and I were joking about how you can predict snow based on CBI's events as the open house also had a threat of bad weather.

But like the open house, the weather couldn't keep people away. A good crowd came to peruse the diamonds in the rough that were all over the place. I saw a factory Chevy performance intake that I was told is a pretty rare item. I took a picture of the part number for anyone that's interested. There was also an ancient battery charger for cheap that still worked! And I've never seen so many old license plates with identical numbers. You don't see many 1947 plates in duplicate.

And there were things for everyone. I even found a whole box of service manuals for British cars and a pristine 1979 Honda Civic Factory Service Manual for less than you could get it in 1979. Special thanks to the vendor for letting me look through an antique Buick sales training manual. It was amazing to see how many things haven't changed on a car in 50 years.

The food was warm as so was the venue thanks to the heater. A stark contrast to the cold wet outdoors. If you couldn't make it out, look through the pictures as I got a lot of the phone numbers of the vendors. And if you missed it this time around, there's another swap meet planned for April 10th. See you at the next one.

If you check previous years for April & May, you will find that there are many car events every Saturday, as well as Saturday night cruise-ins every weekend. Just my observation. I have another dozen or so events to list this weekend. I will include this swap meet in April with more info to come. Marsha

Smile April Swap Meet

Marsha, I am forwarding you the flyer for the April Swap Meet. It is very similar to the January one except it has a gold background instead of blue and the date is larger and at the bottom, hopefully people won't discard it as the outdated January one. It will be a couple of weeks before we get the new ones in the mail, but we have more at the store if anybody would like to pick some up to distribute. Thanks so much for your help.

Got it and will get it posted and emailed to all. Hope that the April one is even bigger and better than the January. We all need a good swap meet in this area, at least once a year to either clean out or find good stuff. After Chip is finished with this '69 Mustang, we may have enough, along with the other 5 rides/engines he restored/rebuilt, to have a decent booth. Maybe, if I can get Chip to let go!!! Thanks, Marsha

Please try to round up some Ford stuff for the next one. We had lots of requests this time and are trying to get more Ford and Mopar vendors for the next one, as their parts are harder to find and we had numerous people looking for them this time.

Thank you Misty! I've been meaning to email you, but I've gotten sick and have basically be taking turns between sleeping and just working on processing pictures.

I've also put up the listing for April's swap meet, so let me know if it's okay.
