So who is going to the BIG swapmeet at the Expo Center on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?

Keep in mind this is the second biggest car swap meet in the United States! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

I'll be selling in booth 9114 - come by to see me and buy all my stuff /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Re: So - it\'s Portland Swap Meet time again...

These things always come up so suddenly for me. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Luckily, I'll be getting some money this week, getting a possible ride with a friend there, and already have a possible deal set up to share a booth with another guy I know that has a spot already reserved.

Not bad for only finding out about it 3 hours ago. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

you will probably be able to find a winch.
it is located at the portland expo center.
if you are coming down I5 you will cross the I5 bridge from vancouver and then cross over jantzen beach. it is the next exit on the right hand side you will go under an overpass then enter a big clover leaf type of exit get in the left lane and turn left at the light. the expo center will be right there on your left. you will probably have to go all the way around the block to get in to the parking lot.
try and get there early to get a good parking spot. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

I just got back from setting up today. - what a gorgeous day! Should have gotten a bigger booth though!

There was all kinds of cool stuff there. = parking is going to be a bitch this year though - as there is another group holding a swapmeet at PIR too!

Crazy - it was busy today - but a lot of stuff was still under tarps...

Swap Meet Hours are:

7-7 Fri & Sat
8-1 Sun (remember Sun is Daylight Savings beginning)

Cost is $7 per day - (plus figure at least that in parking)
and $5 on Sunday.

Everybody thinks there stuff is gold plated today (including me! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif) but that will change as the weekend wears on -

I saw a sh!t load of Swampers today - all over the swap meet - most for around $400 or less too - saw some sweet 39.5 Boggers on welds - but no price on them and I'm sure they were $$$$

Coolest thing was a 60 something Ford galaxy (I believe) on deuce and a halfs with 4' tall skinny tractor tires!

Nice! All be there off and on all weekend -

Found some 72 Blazer rockers - brand new for $10 today~! Score! Crap load of sheet metal for 67-87 GM trucks scattered around everywhere...

Re: So - it\'s Portland Swap Meet time again...

That would be a tight fit emoo /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Good luck hunting down some 40's there is always a good selection of big tires there I have noticed the last few years. Its where I picked up my 35's on rims for my 'burb for $125 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

This is the first year I am not going to make it, going through withdrawls already. I have a funeral to be at that afternoon and won't be in the mindset for it. Everyone please drool for me.
