Planning on heading up I-81 in the AM. Taking the Jag so it should be an enjoyable ride and the limited space will keep the costs down.

First timer.

ronn you missed the one next to it in that tattered original box, it was MINT I mean MINT and he wanted the same money, 18 bucks. NOS Sparton horn.

Hey if two guys tell the same lie it's gotta be true, right

In the car corral was that '63 Split window Vette that some guy died in back in '63, and they could never get the smell out, and they only wanted 800 bucks, and people have tried to just change the interior and it still smelled like death..... and and and................

true story........ about 2 yrs ago bought a title for a 63 split window........ I collect titles. When I got it, had the DOA certificate with it on the back. Apparently the guy raced the car down the highway and lost control. That was in 1966.
Was shocked that the cert was still connected to the title. Insurance co apparently paid out.


PS Jeff good on you for finding that NOS horn. Always something better out there, if you keep your eyes open.

I was looking for a nice restored Sparton horn and a guy told me he had one at his space for $75.00. I was really excited about the information and the price until I saw it. It was very nicely crafted from stainless steel so I put it back to keep looking for a black one.

Should have taken my spare pair of legs... Got there at 8-ish thanks to the traffic coming around the South side of Harrisburg. Excellent parking, 100 yards from the first crossover. Did Orange, Green, most of Chocolate North and ran out of daylight. Went with my normal wandering zigzag style checking out everything on both sides of the row.

Picked up a nice silver painted chromed shroud with a very nice radiator for $120. I though they wanted $130 for the shroud alone. Hoping I don't need the radiator but I have a spare. Picked up a nicely aged later E brake handle for $35 and a steering tube with a good lever detent plate for $35. Mine is cracked and the detents are washed out.

Chick Filet for lunch by the flag poles at the Giant Center. Left at 5, made it home by 7:30 pm again thanks to crap traffic driving into the sun until I -81. Overall a good day.

Still looking for 1929 MD tags...

Beautiful weather. I had a great time. The only thing negative which I have to comment on and I will post something on the AACA forum too is the proliferation of mechanized vehicles being driven through the flea market. Years past they used to drag a can underneath them so you as a pedestrian were aware of their location. Not any more, there are dozens of these being used now and I've observed them speeding and weaving through groups of people and operators talking on cell phones while driving them. This has got to be controlled because it's now out of control.

That motorized traffic increases each year at many events. Organizers must be ignoring the liability.

It wasn't nearly as bad as Carlisle, especially all the guys with big pull behind trailers there. I only tripped over one golf cart which stopped as I was crossing behind it.

If there was one gripe I had it was that there were a lot of RV's on the ground without anything setup to sell. I liked and understand the donation jar for the guys who were staying on site and buying but to just park up for a couple days in a class A makes me walk further and miss more than otherwise.

I was really impressed with how friendly the group was, through out the whole day. It was fun to even point out some deals I'd seen to guys who were set up to sell their personal stuff.
