N8 and I are back early. After the 5th or 6th lap of all the parts we just got bored and came home a day early. We both found one or two item we needed, but I starting buying crap I did not need and figured it was time to head back.

Do I get a faint hint that Reedsville wasn't that good this year ?

Parking lot was empty when I got there Saturday at 8:30 but had filled up by 10:00. Don't know how the vendors did but saw money changing hands, saw folks I hadn't seen in a year; lots of good sheetmetal and chrome. Spent more than I planned; got answers to nagging questions. There was a pretty nice 53 coupe with a hemi for $10,000. More I could tell but only stayed a couple hours. A friend of mine found an M5 locally he had been looking for a couple years and we had to get back and rollback it to his house.

Much to do for the next four months and then...YORK!

I was there Friday from around 11:30 AM to 2 PM. I hadn't been there for 6 years and it seemed like there were fewer vendors there this year than in the past. I still bought a few needed items, though.

I couldn't understand the vendor who had a crate of parts on the floor with a sign that said "Anything in box, $10 or make offer". So I made an $8 offer on an item and he acted insulted and said he had to get $10 for that one! Why did he say "make offer?" [:o)][xx(] I think I left not long after that.

Vendor and parts count is going down every year. I checked out everything that was there is maybe 3 hours and got bored. Next year, I'll drive up for the day just to visit and come back that evening.

I had been looking for these accessory rear fins for my 52 Studebaker (Don't ask my why!) and I found 2 NOS ones at Reedsville. They have got to be a rare item. They were just an accessory installed by dealers.

Jeez, John, I must be a real rookie! You made a point to use the word, "bored" twice in this thread [xx(]- yet my experience was anything but! Not because of all the excitement, but because of all the great conversations I had!! Not to mention the connections I made with folks who will supply me with goods and services I'm going to need as I continue to restore Studes [8D]

Best of luck to you, and I hope the meets you attend in the future are a better experience for you.[^]

We attended all day Friday & left at noon Sat.On fri. the vendors were complaining about lack of customer traffic & rightly so! It as pretty thin & it was cold to boot.Sat. morning the customer traffic had increased a lot & I seen a lot of deals being made even though it was now cold & raining.The main building was almost full with NOS & used parts being offered.Maybe 5 outdoor vendors with used stuff.
One fellow having two used C-K windshields(tinted)neither one had any flaws I could see for $50. each.Where was he before I gave up looking & purchased a new re-pop for $300.with the incorrect grey tint instead of the green?
I purchased very little as I was just along for the ride but my fellow traveller got a lot of things he was seeking

I guess I'm spoiled from attending the last 20 years or so. It's been dropping off pretty fast the last few years and many of us were commenting on it. I've seen the same parts most every year, not much new showing up I guess.
