I can't think of the last time I've had such an exciting morning. Members from The McLaughlin Buick Club of Cananda visited our home before continuing on their tour of Essex County. Eighteen vehicles ranging from 1937 to 2013, full of beautiful friendly people who share a passion for restoration and preservation of not only Buicks but all types of transportaion. Thank you for visiting and sharing and allowing us to tag along to Heritage Village Transportation Museum. A big Thank You to Holley for taking a video and posting for all to see.
It's the end of July already. How did that happen? Bothwell Car show and swap meet; one of the biggest in Southwestern Ontario is in only 7 days. We are stocking parts and planning our layout and praying for good weather. If you only attend one show this summer make sure it is Bothwell. Stop by our site and say Hi; row I site # 3,4 &5.
We are gearing up for our first swap meet of the year Paris February 8 . We hope everyone is progressing well on their projects and if there is anything you are hoping we bring to Paris, give us a call and we will make sure we find room in the truck for it. Stop around and say Hi - see you there
We had heard lots of stories about the swap meet at the International Center near the airport in Toronto and finally had to try it out.
Lots of people, sold some stuff, bought some stuff, long drive home.
Starting to plan for Paris in February.
This year is the first year that we will be heading out to the International Centre in Mississauga Ontario for their 47th Annual Motor City Cars & Parts Flea Market. Create your car part Christmas lists and stop in to see us on December 7. Hopefully the snow's not too bad by then, and everyone will be able to travel safely. Hope to see you there.
Ancaster fall 2014 was another great swap meet. Coming off 403 you could see the line of lights and tail lights waiting to set up outside.
The weather was clear and crisp and we were glad we were inside.
It was great to see our friends and customers and catch up.
Looking forward to the International Centre in December.
Looking forward to Ancaster swap meet Sunday. Still trying to figure out what used parts to take - thinking some 67-72 truck parts, some nice 70-72 Nova parts I recently ran across, maybe some 64 El camino stuff. If you want me to look up anything specific. let me know. See you Sunday in the big building
Saturday we had a great day in Rocton at the Waterdown Swap Meet.
I think that there were more vendors than I have ever seen there before and the buyer traffic was good and steady. I barely had time to pick up a couple of things we needed and did not get a chance to look at all the show cars. still have that cowl hood though.
The truck and trailer are loaded and we will be in Rocton bright and early. It looks like great weather . We are bringing our SALE TABLE with some great deals on discontinued or oops items. I have also put some nice used parts in the trailer and we will have our usual new parts. We recently came across some nice used 69-72 Nova parts that we are bringing along. Hope to see you there. Dave.
The first fall swap meet in Sparta at the race track was today.
Great venue, beautiful drive, looks like this has the potential to be a great swap meet. It was good to see all of our regular customers and nice to meet some new ones too.
even sold some stuff too - bought some too. any one need a fiberglass cowl hood for a 68-72 Nova?
