        I was there - saw some nice stuff. Scored a pretty cool set of service manuals for my 71. Brand new still in the plastic wrap!! A little yellowed but when you're 51 yrs old, it's OK!
        Wish I knew who was there - would have been fun to say hello.

        I wasn't. So you both missed a opportunity to meet a incredible guy. With a 3/4 finished car. :)

          Saw your car there today Dan. Looking mighty spiffy under the hood! Your guy did a great job on the engine compartment and the engine. Well done!

          Did I buy anything from you??? Which spot was yours?

          The swap meet was small but still worthwhile to me. It certainly was not the size of the Mopar Nats but i didn't expect it to be! I bought those service manuals plus a few other items.

          Not certain if you did I have no idea what you look like I was the second to the last FULL row with a grey enclosed trailer. I had a full set of small bolt Centerlines with tires.

          So I spoke with you about those Centerlines! Said how well they would polish up and we discussed those new M/T front tires on the smaller rims. Told you i had ProStars on one of my cars and how i bought a pair of knock-offs for the rear for street use. Small world!

          No that wasn’t me I only had one guy ask about them and the only question or comment he said was how much. And all of the tires are street tires no M/T.

          Yes, he did a great job. Unbeknownst to me, he had his Plum Crazy, '71 Cuda, 440, 6-pack(bbl?), 4-speed, Dana 60 car there.

          Now I have to take my car back to my painter and have him perform his magic on the underside of the hood. I didn't realize how rough it is until everything else got prettied up.
