    It was cool and cloudy on friday there were a few times it was sprinkling but it didn't see to bug anyone the grass and roads didn't even get wet. I couldnt go saturday so i'm not sure how it was.

    It was certainly nice that it was 110 this year like years past!

    Seemed like there were a lot of good deals this year too even for things I didn't need.

    Thursday, sunny and hot, a few good deals around there. I bought an Offy 360 intake for a small block for $5 and an Edelbrock performer rpm for $20. Friday, overcast with decent temps but it threatened rain all day and you could tell it scared away some of the participants. Lots of lookers and not many takers but I scored a Lakewood blowproof bellhousing with block plate that looked like it was never used for $75. Saturday was rainy off and on all morning and later in the afternoon the sun popped through and it got pretty hot. Scored a complete rear differential out of a 2003 Viper with half shafts for $350 also picked up a box of dealer service manuals for Vipers for $10 each. Maybe the best score of the weekend was a DRBII scanner and a DRBIII scanner out of a dealership with all the manuals for $75 and then I bought all the accessories that went with it like the module to flash the electronic keys to vehicles and re flash computors and another for transmission scanning etc. If it works it will be great, if not it will be on e-bay next week.

    Weather wise, it couldn't have been any better. As for the parts, I think it was the worst year. Other than renewing my subscription to MCG, it was the first time in almost 20 years that I didn't buy anything.

    Lots of empty vendor spaces. Weather was hot but not as bad as last year. Bought a woodgrain steering wheel for my Swinger. All in all a great time which went by way to quickly.

    I thought the weather was beautiful. It rained, but not that hard so it kept the sun from beating us up on Friday and most of Saturday. Saturday afternoon the sun came out and was pretty harsh if you didn't have sunscreen on.

    I scored an E-body pistol grip shifter for $40. My best friend scored a Torquer II intake for $50 and a forged 134 tooth big block fly wheel for $50 as well. All of these were found on Saturday. I also picked up a spot weld drill bit so I can make more progress than last time I was under the car trying to remove the rear shock crossmember with a standard drill bit. I'm hoping I'll have time this week to try it out.

    Jake and i picked up a pair of keyed alike door locks for his 65 for $5, 2 rows after he talked another guy into taking the reverse lenses out of complete assemblies for $30 he found a near perfect reverse light lens for $5....... He's learning well....lol... ah, and a defroster tube for $1. Also picked up a couple of pre-paid orders to save on shipping.. I grabbed a tail light lens for my 05 Ram for $10.

    Aside form that, we grilled our own dogs and burgers for lunch Fri/Sat in the land yacht row.... A good time was had by all.

    I thought the show was excellent, but I could only be there for three hours, so what do I know. I got to meet HemiMark, Old Man Mopar and HemiDenny at the tent, so that was VERY COOL! Also got to tour the grounds (quickly) with my soon to be 5 yr old grandson. FANTASTIC!

    BTW the Hemi cars under the FABO tent were everything I expected. Phenomenal! :prayer:

    I dropped My duster radio off to retro sound. Will cost $400 and four to five months to complete. Replace everything on the inside to modern electronics.

    I also bought a duster door skin.

    I was looking for a really good duster grill And bought one for $40 at the end of the day. 50 feet away there was a grill it was much better That I must have walked by half a dozen times and did not see a. So I bought that one too.

    Finally I dropped a spare instrument cluster to instrument specialties for restoration. Mr G's did my other one and I was not very happy with it plus it got a little damaged when I installed it.

    I struck up a conversation with a staff member who said they were 20 percent below the car count on Friday compare to previous years.

    A guy out of Maryland with selling his dart sport that had some type of rebuilt 360 on it but it was mostly a drag car. It was lime green cage car and not street legal. He was only asking $6000 or best offer which seem like a great starting car to fool around with. Abody stuff as usual very very scarce. That is unless you're looking for five to six and three quarter rearends lined up on a trailer.
