Here it is right from the horses mouth (their flyer): http://sfvalleymodela.com/wp-content...eetadfinal.pdf

I enjoy this meet. Not big enough to drive 100 miles to attend but small enough that you don't feel like you have just run a marathon when you finish going through it. I plan to be there again this year.

Hardtimes,

Hope you're driving the roadster. I'd love to see the Buttermore HC Head.

Hey David,
Yeah, that's the plan, as of now
Have been going to bring 'stuff' to sell, which would involve truck then, but the time is short now and so...roadster is backup and fun to be in anytime that I get an excuse to move things around and dig it out of garage.

Also, one plan was to put this on back of pickup (for sale/troll..fishing term, eh?). Just wish that I could put a video of sight/sounds that MRS made on my Iphone. Ahh, better than listening to Bach .

Funny story is...she said yes she could make video with my Iphone. So, started the beast up for run in. She was dutifully recording. I gave the B two higher rpm shots. Said to her, hope you got that, as she is running great.

I looked around , she was no where to be seen..what the ? Shut B down and she came from behind shed and said...I'm done with that (scared her) !! Of course, it didn't scare me...cause I had shooter muffs on

Fun swap meet and car show.
It was nice to see HARDTIMES and ZZLEGENDS cars.

I got a few nice items, saw some beautiful cars and visited with some Fordbarn Model A people.

Hey Neil. At least you took pictures. I still have my 1987 flip top phone and have a hard enough time just talking on it. Glad you stopped by and said hello. I should have told you to take it for a spin. I to met a few new people that I just hear about but never put a face to the name. Hope to see you again soon. Take care, Mark.
Also noticed that you got John Neilson in the picture. A very knowledgeable and super nice guy.

Hey Neil,
Nice to see you and other Ford Barn guys. Fun to put faces to members only known by avatars here !
Some really nice cars present with maybe 50 total. One beautiful black perfect paint/shine '31 wide bed pickup..wow, and for sale. Wish I had the $ for that one !!
Also , got some REALLY great information from members met. One nice '30 coupe sold , on the spot , for 6K !

One embarrassing moment for old brain when it sent mixed information about a member here , whom I've known for over a decade..Fred A.
'Getting old' saying came to mind. Fred A is a super guy and very knowledgeable about all things old iron ! We discussed a number of A crank shafts , including a nice/huge BB he was selling.
Only bought one item, a new in box with instructions and sender... old stewart warner temp gage ..nice score !
Ohh, can't forget Randy Gross ! He gave me some valuable tutoring relative to f100 proper adjustment tech.. We may make a trip down to see / buy in a week or so.

I was only there for an hour, but I bought a nice Stewart Warner horn, some backup Zenith carbs, an AA jack and a nice 21" wheel with a good tire.
Reasonable prices.
The guy who sold me the 21" wheel and tire for $25 threw in another free wheel that had a bad rim, but a good tire on it.
