    I plan to show up with dartie on Sunday morning. Will arrive in the FABO section then likely walk over to swap area to see if anything I don't need is there. :)

    Also looking for a few interior plastic items for 73-76 Duster....

    Laysons is usually there but the french guys from quebec that normally have a huge display sold their business before last years show and their wasn't as much repop stuff there , maybe it will pick up again this year , can't say I've ever noticed anyone selling new carpet but the small shiny bits can usually be found .

    Thanks for the good vibes Kenny , I wasn't supposed to come last year so I could make the Euro trip this coming spring but when the time came the itch took over and you know how it is lol , It looks like this contract I am taking care of at the navy base for the next two years is going to push the Euro trip back another year but I am looking at coming to Moparfest next year either way because I just can't deal with these west coast waterheads without the occasional fix of my Ontarible friends .-Cheers post lots of pics Chris

        My pictures are up from Moparfest on Sunday, on my Facebook page, still working on uploading the high quality to my main site at smugmug.

        Moparfest Sunday

        I also lucked out and won the Engine blow contest.

        What do you folks do at this "Moparfest" shindig? I get asked every year to go and I ask the same questions and never get a straight answer. I don't see any drag racing, or any motorsports activities, nothing. I did the lawn chair rugby thing back when I had a trailer queen and swore never to go back.

        Please enlighten me.

        It's a giant lawnchair/ swap meet event during the day and a great get together time in the evening , Friday there is a cruise but we general meet up for some wobbly pops and great food and Saturday one of the local dealerships has a giant bbq with a burn out contest and live music.The field hosts 1800-2000 cars that are driven in while the show barn/arena hosts the real trailer queens plus notable historical cars and people like the Petries who where the Canadian Rapid Transit folks and won as many races as Sox and Martin .The swap area has space for 200 venders plus a couple of car corral areas , in 2015 there were 3 Maxi cars in the car corrals .This is for all purposes the Canadian equivilent of the Nats. For us FABO folks it is a great social event ,if your not into hanging out with us then stay home.

        I thought as much. When this event moves to Grand Bend or Cayuga I'll make the effort. Nothing against you guys but this event as it stands doesn't appeal to me and I only live 20 minutes away.

        Hi Guys . I have not heard much chatter about the 2017 Moparfest . We live about 5 hrs. east of New Hamburg and we have a standing invite from friends that live in Guelph . The only kicker is our 20 th anniversary that weekend so i'm working on the missus to join me but she is not overly interested in that plan . LOL For who ever is going, enjoy. Bob

          Sorry I was mistaken. Breslau only has WestJet from Calgary.
