This looks like a great event to walk off the cabin fever before the Autox season starts! I'm dragging Dave from Needlesstourque calibrations along with.

I'm sure I'll find something a-body or gen3 that i cant live without.

From my end selling a few items from a friends spot, I saw a bunch of tire kicking tight-azz people who wouldn't come off any of the $$$$ rolls in their wallet. They touch and handle everything and walk away. Most would'nt even try to buy item for less or wanted it for near nothing. When I tried to wonder around and buy stuff from others , it did seem like a lot of the same old over priced stuff, the same guys have been trying to sell for years. I tried to buy a couple things for a lower price and they wouldn't budge. A guy in Falbes spot did cut me a deal on a set of M/P ductile iron 360 main caps, TY. I think the economy is not getting any better and the guys buying need a deal because their cash is limited, and the guys selling need to get as much as they can because they don't sell enough and the cost to get a vendor spot ain't cheap. Also, I think they need to just cancel Sundays from now on because there was hardly no one there except vendors. We sold a total of $70 from the four of us in our spot today,[Sunday]. And I know ain't, ain't a word but I'm from Missouri and we use it here.

I sold almost $200 worth of stuff on Sunday, best Sunday I have had in a while!

I was there saturday only. Got in at nine and left around 3.
I was with the owner of the charger I am working on,,, and he spent a chunk.
I watched foot traffic and it didnt seem like may people were carrying parts. So in my mind I have a feeling sales were not good for most

Sunday anymore at any show/swap is useless other than a walking trail.

Well, not all of it was. I got a great deal on a couple of 62 Ply headlight bezels, a deal on a couple parts for my 63 Ply, and picked up some clips for trim as well.

I thought there was some great parts there.

They had the Christmas tree "race" there as usual. And as usual, there was some terrific lights. A 0.509 light was number 23 qualifier!

In as much as Sundays are a waste for shows that size, my guess is the building is rented for the weekend and subsequently they charge vendors for that. If the show was only one day, the rent for space would still be the same.

I doubt any spectators go both days unless they missed something the first day. And of course most will go the first day because they want first crack at stuff.

The Sunday spectators are usually the few people who had to work Saturday or the "church crowd" ... looking for something to do after church so they go to the show but they don't spend money.

If they did make it a one day event, it would likely be a Sunday.

The only shows that justify being more than one day are the shows like Carlisle, where its a real challenge to do it in a day.

I found some Road Runner parts. Was eyeballing the Allen Johnson Hemi Heads for 6K. But I thought the best deal was the B1 MC heads and rockers for $3900. They looked nice!

The Blue RT for 22K looked like a great deal. I didn't see the guys from Goodin motors this year.

I had a great time. Most of the stuff I brought was gone by Saturday afternoon. But I had my stuff priced to sell. I noticed the vendors with stupid prices still had most of there stuff. I did miss Mancini. I found a few things I needed. Will be back next year, I hope
