i couldn't make it this year due to health issues and doctor visits.
i have MS as well as knee and hip issues, so a scooter of some kind is a necessity for me.
one thing i have noticed over the years, if you must use a scooter, you better be aware of your surroundings at all times.
i don't zoom around at 100mph, and try to stay out of everyone's way.
even being super cautious didn't prevent me from being run into by a vehicle owned by Hemmings a couple years ago in the swap meet.
luckily, my scooter and myself didn't suffer any damage, but the scooter put a pretty big hack in the Hemmings car's bumper cover.
quite a few bystanders saw this happen and gave the driver a real chewing out, as well as making sure i was ok. i'm glad the incident was a low speed one.
it's not as much fun as some think when one is forced to ride instead of walk.

Had a guy on a scooter one year make a left turn and crash into my swap tables from a dead stop.
People need to learn how to drive these things if they use them.

No, obviously not. Was it you?

Honestly I really don't care about what anyone does with something after they buy it from me, just thought it was a little bit of a chintzy, greedy move and it made me chuckle to myself when I saw it like c'mon, really? That's all. Maybe he knows more than me about how to price this stuff? Probably. If the dude thinks he can get $135 for a single inside bucket seat track without studs or any other hardware then good for him. Would you pay that much? I wouldn't. Usually if someone is asking $135 for anything generally they won't just take $35 but hey, you never know.

If he got anything over $35 for it he would have made money on it and again, good for him. Maybe I shoulda listed it for more but then I the risk of not selling it and taking it home again to sit on my shelf. No idea if he sold it at that price or not. If he didn't sell it, he paid me for the privilege of taking it home.

Just going to say this, and its not a knock on anyone. Wednesday and Thursday at carlisle is and always has been the vendors "playtime". Thats when things were bought and turned around and sold at profit over the next couple days. When someone buys what your selling at what you want, let it go. Don't think about the what if. Ive not only put people in this situation, I've been put into it as well. Its just the game, dont hate the players. Judging by your responses, it got to you. Dont be that dude and say it didnt.

Maybe its his turn to protect the seat track for the future generations. Now he gets to drag it to swap meets for possibly years, before he sells it at a gave away price, or he might find the one guy that has been looking for that seat track for years and is thrilled to find on at any price.

I've been on both ends of that deal before. I'm at the garage cleaning stage right now. What I may have paid for something is water under the bridge, now it either sells, or goes on the scrap truck the next week. Once they hand me their money, I really don't care what they do with the part.

It’s called humidity.
Guy in our club came out from California.
He was saying it was nothing like California heat.

When I was out in cali, I noticed when it got "hot" it was eerily very tolerable. There was little to no humidity, it was a dry heat. Humidity in PA for some reason is the absolute worse. You would think that escaping direct sun exposure would buy you relief- no, it does not. The humidity is unstoppable, it can't be reasoned with.

I was not at Carlisle but I will add that when I packed a trailer with my parts and stuff from friends a couple of times I was amazed that people got on the trailer to dig through before we even parked in the swap. Didn't know that was a thing. I would always see my old parts later in the day at someone elses spot priced more than what I sold it for. At first I was pissed. But then I thought I brought it to sell and it did. The only thing I would have wished is that I found a buyer that got a good deal and actually needed it and would personally use it.

I was there and I had a great time as usual. I picked up a couple of parts for my car, met Joe Zolper and Dave Rhea. I have no complaints. I already have a room reserved for next year.

I go with my friend who rents a scooter. While he is a little overweight (so am I) I wouldn’t call him fat and he certainly isn’t lazy. Unfortunately, he has really bad knees and he just can’t do all the walking required. Especially given the fact that the weekend of Carlisle is usually the hottest weekend with highest amount humidity of the year in the northeast. He has yet to have an accident or run over anyone’s parts.

I never knew the swap meet was open on Thursday. Usually I get there by noon on Thursday so starting next year I am going to get my shopping done on Thursday and Friday so I can see the rest of the show on Saturday. I wonder if the attendance record will be broken again next year if people from Canada are allowed in? They could break 3,000. I am already registered for the show next year as well.

I agree this years weather was the best I can remember.
