    I'm planning on go to the Nats in Columbus next Saturday and I'm wondering do the venders on the manufacturer midway actually have inventory to sell or are they just promoting and taking orders ? Any show discounts ? Last question I'm wanting to drive my Duster but I'm curious about parking , I don't want to be parked in some tight parking area ? Only going for the day so paying an entry fee doesn't make much sense .

    mapinside_000.gif Most large vendors have lots to sell. There's a few that don't like Ledgendary comes to mind. It would be impossible for them to bring many colors for hundreds of models. The parking without admission I don't know about although I see a few free parking lots on the map.

    Most are order takers!! If $20 bucks for a hot dog and a beer is a show special then I guess they do! Ha I'll be there.

    Us poor people in the swap area cook hamburgers and hot dogs on our little grilles - much cheaper than those $20 for a dog and a beer lol!

      There’s also the option of preordering and having your purchase brought to the show to save shipping. May be a little late for the west coast companies, but I’ve done that many times.

      And that works well. A 3 day spectator pass is $45. A 4 day 10x25 swap meet spot is $90 that includes 1 admission. We buddy up and split a swap space and have a nice place to hang out, rest, eat and to sell a few parts if we like. Another option for you guys. Plus we usually can park close or in the dedicated swap meet parking lot.

      @hoosierdaddy the parking lot back by gate H normally isn’t too crowded. It’s close to the swap meet but a long walk to about everything else

        As far as the grilling goes, I’m willing to bring burgers if someone wants to grill them! Lol
