Are any of the IL Chapter members planning to attend this coming weekends swapmeet/show. It is saturday and sunday in Jefferson Wi. Which is about 1 1/4 hours north of Rockford. Some of the members of the WI Chapter are getting together for dinner on saturday at a restaurant in Jefferson about 6pm. Also the show on sunday has all years of mustangs featured.
I may have been interested, had I known about it sooner. However, the weather this weekend doesn't look like it's going to very good. The high on Sunday is only supposed to be around 50-not exactly ideal weather for a car show.
Would have been nice with MUCH better weather. Much like John, was too late to change plans. My Brother and my family met our Aunt for lunch and have a Union meeting Sunday. Whitney show is in De Kalb area right?

Welcome to AMERICA.....now learn to speak english!
what a miserable weather weekend- but sold most of the stuff and a few bites on a body and another crew so hopefully those turn into solid leads. I am not sure exactly where the JCWhitney show was, I knew I had seen the flyer for it in N. IL and knew most of the chapter was from semi around there. Will try and give more time for the fall one. It usually a good show and swap too. Did good buying-- not much followed us home. A couple of books and the redone 390 heads and Off. Intake for the 66 cyclone project.
I was at Jefferson. Froze our butts off and got wind-burned! I sold a couple sets of wheels and some 9" center sections. Bought a 64 F100 from Arizona and was way too late on a deal on a 73-79 Crewcab. Seller wanted $1500 for it and it was already sold when I saw it. That is the problem with trying to sell stuff. I am locked in my booth most of the time. My buddy or my son would watch the booth for a while but it's a two-way street. They want to look also. Son found some wheels for his 2000 Mustang.
On a sour note... Illinois raised the price at their tollbooths. It is now $1 ($.50 if you have I-Pass) but because I was pulling my one axle camper, it cost me $2.85, each way. $1 for my loaded truck and an extra $1.85 for a 1200# trailer????
