I suggest you put your general location in your profile. An "OK" swap meet close might be a good swap meet.

The “good finds” aren’t just at the swap meets. I’ve found a lot of great stuff by just driving my car every where I can and talking to anybody that mentions it or asked about it. I always ask them if they have or know about any parts that might be for sale. I’ve gotten a couple of motors by over hearing a conversation while out for breakfast. You have to follow up every lead and you’ll end up with a barn full of stuff. Happy Hunting!!!....Mark

Although I love wondering swap meets, I have the best luck right on this page.
Every "wanted" ad I have ever posted has been answered by many helpful barners.
