Absolutely nothing,went to Pomona today,it was very poor,the internet killed it in my opinion Sad    cheers richie,uk

allthough i have bought most of my 'rare' stuff from the net, i think you are very right. i like finding some cool things at swapmeets, it makes that part so much more special as opposed to just clicking and paypaling someone... evolution baby.

It's an interesting one. You used to be reliant on a few dealers for parts and when the internet (Ebay/Samba/Other) came along it opened it up but I don't think it's bought prices down and unfortunatley there's a huge variation in the quality of sellers. I'd still rather go to a guy that has good contacts in the market and specify what I'm looking for and what condition I want it in or buy it straight off the table in front of me. I think buying off someone that knows their stuff is preferable to risking stuff that's been liberally described and turns up in crap condition from a totally unknown source on the internet. With a swap meet there's also that stuff you didn't know you wanted but can't leave sitting on the table once you've seen it. It'd be a shame if the internet ends up totally killing this off, sure there's a good side too (there's The Lounge for a start!) and I have got some good stuff on-line but...

I got a breather box that looks like a Race-Trim, only without the "Race-Trim" for $5 at Bug-In. All the sellers there thought they had solid gold Angry

Since I didn`t go to the Bug In I went to a local auto swap and found a complete set of new SCAT engine tin with a no heater doghouse shroud freshly powder coated black for $50.00.  Grin

They are 15". One wheel was cracked bad around the center, another was cracked on the back, welded, and cracked again. So I swapped the halfs so I have 2 solid wheels to mount my M&H DOT's on- after a good blast and polish, of course Smiley I paid $200, I could have talked her down more, but I'm happy with it Smiley

I scored these Bug In dash plaques at Bug In #33. These were for sale in the Nostalgia area. 8 NOS Bug In dash plaques #24-#31. Now my collection is almost complete. I need #s 20-23. I have 2 #19s for trade, who has some extra #20-23 dash plaques to trade.

Yeah, I gotta tell ya... I've been to many Bug-Ins. But I've yet to see THOSE dash plaques. Truly unique, for sure.

Here are some of the ones that I've attended.

Yep! Amen to THAT. What a joke that was. The only thing I wanted from the swap meet area were my reverse light boots. And those were free. I offered the guy money, but he was too nice and wouldn't accept it. Just like the old days. At least SOME people don't think they're selling precious metal(s).
