Hey Chris,
THANKS, for posting this ! This meet is going to be good again this year, as in past years, due to some disagreements being settled and good will again existing !
This event also benefits the boys home at which it is held! Maybe first time that a barn buddy and me will bring a truck full of goodies also !
Hope to see you there at 5:00 am

Well, got up at 3:00 AM, to make sure that I was 'ready' for 5 AM opening for sellers ! Not so much of a crowd of buyers as hoped for this year...somethings not right about that !!
Did meet barner Jon Nielson and a lot of 4E4 friends ! Jon is just a youngster ! Hm, he sure is well stocked with knowledge/experience for such a young guy !
Had a great time for a great cause.
I bought one item and it is a JOE HUNT 4 cyl magneto. Got it cheap , but going to have to have it modified for A/B use...I think, as it has the WEIRD 6" long shaft on the bottom. Model A/B turn counter clockwise rotation. ANYONE know how to determine if this mag may is meant for clockwise or counter clockwise ! It throws a nice electrical punch ...in either direction..just had to hold on and try it out,eh !

Anyone know if a mag can be altered , rotation wise , to match Model A/B rotation ?

Good times in Chatsworth Cali.
This year was a much better participation in attendance, maybe weather, maybe cabin fever. (escaping the AC as it has been warm here)
I finally had the opportunity to meet a couple Fellow Barners, I have seen these guys around and just never made the connection. These guys were going 90 mph selling, I am sure they needed a nap right after lunch.
There was quite a bit of Hi Performance Banger parts there, and seemed to have good activity.
The 4Ever4 club had a meeting there, the usual list of subjects. I did notice that some showed up for the meeting and then left quickly, maybe didn't want to be recognized by the Boy's home staff as "missing".

Just put a tentative date on calendar for '16.
To ZZ, and hardtimes, good to meet you guys. See Ya' J
