    Excellent question! It would be nice to get a few members swapping in adjacent spots (safety in numbers) and for those of us with not so many parts to sell - to share spots. This works out well when it comes to taking turns to watch the spot while the other(s) walk the swap, grab some food or use the bathroom.

    I might break down and get one, as Ive got a few parts that might bring in a few dollars-mostly early a stuff though.
    Im guessing most just park their cars behind the parts...since it is a 20x20 foot space

    I usually have a spot, but this year I'm doing something a little different. In conjunction with Ed at E-body Parts and Restoration I am going to have a spot with some of his used stuff and some of mine. Depending on how much stuff I wind up having I wouldn't mind sharing a spot.

    One of the difficulties in getting spots together is the way they usher in the swappers. I guess it makes sense to line people up the way they do, but it means you have to get there together and make sure one of you doesn't get stopped when they switch lines.

    AZMOPAR and I always share a spot. I usually have a car as well and as soon as I park it I come over and help unload. We also have another Moparts member that will park next to us. We are all meeting at the Circle K store (formally 7-11) on the corner of Woodly and Sherman and then driving down to get in line. I think the meetup time is 5:30. I'll have to check.

    Post over in the Spring Fling thread: http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/showthread.php?t=90208&page=4

    Say you are looking to meet up with someone before the show, and share a swap spot. Like Darteforte does and put the parts in one vehicle.

    Or if someone has small parts they are wagon cart them over to your spot.
