    A few months ago they told me at Orlando Speed World that they are planning on bringing back the Mopar event @ SGMP May 26-27. It is now on their schedule, but no additional details.

      Myron, Do you know anything about the swap meet? How many vendors, what kind of attendance, & so forth? Bill S.

      Sorry, all I know is what they have posted. Attendance was declining before they passed on it last year. I'm hoping that it can be brought back up this time around, which is why I posted the info. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I'll be there either with my Dart or Aspen Wagon.

      I may try to attend the swap meet to peddle off some of my 360 pieces in order to build my 340 based 416 for the Demon.

      There is no telling what kind of turn out they will have since last years event was canceled. Two years ago the vendor turn out was pretty good. I usually buy more than I sell at this event.

      I've been twice.

      Vendor area is kinda small but prices weren't jacked up.

      Their track, BTW is BAD ASS- gotta be the best one I've seen.

      Both 1/8 and 1/4 if you want.

      ...and super well maintained.

        Yes, I'm going to go, if my back lets me. I have back surgery scheduled on June 5th.

        I may try to go, I don't know if my back will stand a 12 trip, one way.

        I plan to be there racing. But I may bring a bulletin board to post a few things I may bring for sale. I may also post a few for items in the FOR SALE sections here that I can bring there for pick-up if anyone is interested, especially big/heavy items that are a pain to ship otherwise. (i.e.: heads, hoods, scoops, etc.) With the race car, I have limited room, so that will be limited

          If I have time, I may post some stuff in the ad section that I can bring to sell if anyone is interested. But I mainly plan to race.

          Weather was great, although hot. There were a couple of light sprinkles Subday, but other than that it was a great weekend.
