The swap meet gods have been nice to me

Went to the first swap meet of the year yesterday in Turlock, CA. Got there about 6:30am and at about Noon time I was heading home with the following items:

Fenders have no rust (one has already been patched and the other doesn't need a patch). The running boards are mostly straight, but do have some holes cut in them, which would be very easy to patch up.

This old tricycle and an old John Deere trailer that goes to the JD pedal tractor (the basket on the bike is rusted through, so the JD trailer will donate itself as a replacement). Hopefully, I'll finish it sometime in the summer for my son's 3rd birthday.

Some miscellaneous collectibles (including an NOS AC filter for the truck, an NOS 51/52 Park lamp assembly, and 8 sets of NOS B.F.Goodrich 26x2.125 bicycle tubes).

More NOS parts. 48-52 F-series door glass (pair), arm rest cover material (with about 10 unused pieces in stock colors), and windshield washer assembly.

And, the biggest purchase of the day (for only $80), a TEXACO letter set that lights up (haven't wired it yet). It also had four extra letters that came with it. Not sure if I'll keep it or not yet. The only place to hang it is in my backyard. It'll go great with my circular Texaco "T" logo that is also in a similar can that lights up.

The best part is that I didn't spend as much as I anticipated and came home with more $$ than expected.

Any of you hit any swap meets yet?

Very cool, froze my A$$ off at the first swapmeet in Fort Worth yesterday, 36 degrees. I also got fenders but front, new steel for $260 each. Not as good as your deal.

I think I saw it. Was it a 48-50 left fender with the inner fender attached? I passed on it because it was an F3 and had rust at the bottom. If it was in slightly better shape, then I probably would have purchased it.

Yep that sounds like it. If it comes back I will probably get rid of the rust on one of these days that you don't want to be outside. I figured I would give it a shot and see if it could find a new home first.

turlock... too late

I went to the turlock swap meet last weekend too. Wasn't able to make it 'til sunday morn though. I was there when the gates opened. It took quite awhile to go through the whole thing. The weather was okay but more chilly than I expected. Many of the vendors were sitting by a fire or heater of some sort. I was looking for a 10 spline slip yoke for the flathead top loader trans I bought recently. No luck. When I got out to the big field section,, one third or more of the vendors had left the night before. So I came home with nothing to show for my trip but some shivers. The heater in my truck felt really good.
