    None of you guys know about this?

    It's this Friday, Saturday, & Sunday at the Expo Center. It's always held the first or second weekend in April.

    It's the second biggest auto swap meet in the nation - there is only one in Pennsylvania that is bigger (supposedly)

    It runs 7 am to like 6 pm Fri & Sat - then like 8-3?? (not sure about the hours on Sunday) on Sunday...

    Seriously - if you don't know about it - you need to go - it takes up ALL the expo center AND ALL the parking lots! IT IS FAWKIN HUGE!

    Lots of cool stuff!

    Gotta go!

    It literally takes like 7 hours to walk through the whole thing - and that's walking fast!

    I always go on Friday or Sunday - it is a zoo on Saturday!

    I'll post the real hours tomorrow for Sunday - but I know it opens @ 7 am on Fri & Sat

    Well Thursday I hope to get some shopping done.
    we are in stall 9315.
    Hope to see you there.
    If you have parts you need to be rid of and you didn't get a booth get ahold of POWERMAD he has the booth with us also or PM us and let us know. I /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gift was cheaper to get a booth then hit all 3 days and pay admitance fee's.

    We can get vendors passes since we have a booth. As for getting a booth now it was to our knowledge they were all sold out, but I don't know if people will be a no show and have open stalls or not all you can do is try and call.
    (503) 678-2100 and see what they have to say. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have gone to it for the past 6 years in a row (no wait I missed Spring of 99 - I was in North Carolina)

    But yes, I typically see at least 4-5 complete sets of 44s or other larger sizes for sale- there is all kinds of this stuff there.

    Man, I shouldn't have even brought this up - all the more for me!

    /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif sweet, I'll have to see if I cant find a cheap 39.5-40" balding spare. If it'll hold air, I'll take it! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
