Went with Terry Frye and Tim Kobernik (GTTim)

We had a great time. Saw a lot of sheet metal we don't usually see. Vendors we don't usually see. Saw some high prices and some reasonable prices. A pair of NOS Wagonaire tail lamps w/lenses - $350. They did not sell. A pair of fresh chrome full flow valve covers that really looked nice for $295. A pair of chrome covers NOS for $325. I didn't ask on the nos C/K fenders. Fresh chrome bumpers are up to $370. Used A/C setups are still $350 with parts missing.

I saw a lot of familiar faces. Met Bob Andrews (Bams50). Really great guy! He's got a lot of energy I don't have. Just a young pup though :)
Always great to see Bob Palma and Dick Quinn.

Only thing to me was if I drive 800 miles to a swap meet I'd like it to be a little bigger. After all the hype over the years I expected more.

Still had a great time!!

Claude,

Good to see you again. Just looking at all that junk I had to load back into my trailer got my back hurting again.

Great to meet you also, Claude! Me, a young pup? Thanks for that- I'm gonna tell my family you said so!

RE: the size- I felt the same way the first time I went, but just figured my perspective was out of whack. I still love to go, just know what to expect now;)

Hope to see you at Lancaster[^]

Oh my gosh!!! I forgot DustyBob! Whenever I travel East I look forward to hooking with him. And if I don't see him I am disappointed. A great friend.

Gary, good to see you again too! You had a lot of stuff there. I hope you sold enough.

Bob.........well us older farts like to see some younger blood in the fold. Besides we could probably get a group rate if we all get treated for the addiction at the same place.

:) Nice seeing you and Tim, too, Claude. Good to converse with Bob Andrews as well, putting a face with a poster. (As opposed to putting a face on a poster, I'd guess you'd say! ;))

Yes, York was a bit smaller and it is hard to dispute JP's obervations as to why. However, I traveled with two first-timers (John and Chuck Kern, Page 11 January 2008 Turning Wheels) and they had a great time. They're still in shock at the low breakfast prices at Alexander's there by the fairgrounds. John is just getting into Studebaker V-8 engine building and had used a Precision Systems Index to locate many Turning Wheels articles he wanted to read. Subsequently, he came back with 23 back issues of Turning Wheels to digest!

Dale "Lark Parker" McPhearson was the fourth in our quad and although it wasn't Lark's first time, he hadn't been in awhile and thoroughly enjoyed himself as well.

A nice time overall; good to see everyone! (Gary Hearn: 'Hope you got your truck repaired and back home. No fun adventure on the way back, that's for sure. Ouch! :() :D BP

A blood chit is a pass issued to a member of a military service that doesn't speak the native language. This one looks to be a American Volunteer Group (Flying Tigers, AVG) blood chit from 1940-1941. They were the Chinese Air Force. On the series 1, the Kao Ming Tong flag is block printed on silk, on the series 2 the flag is embroidered. The lettering below is hand painted in both instances. The system worked so well that blood chits were issued to flyers in the Korean war and some were issued in the Viet Nam War. There is a whole series of them. Loosely translated it says "help this guy get back to our side".
I wish I could have been at York. I've seen that guy somewhere before, maybe Red Wing?

"One after another they volunteered how in their families and in their
communities they were expected to be responsible for their behavior, how
honesty was assumed to be the rule, not the exception. They also talked
matter-of-factly about the sense of duty to their country, a sentiment not
much in fashion anymore."
