View Full Version : Menominee (WI) swap meet pix

12-13-2013, 05:47 PM
I hardly ever get to go to things (3 kids, 2 jobs and no free time...) and can actually post on here even less, so I'm glad I can finally share something here.
I had a few minutes to check out the swap meet in Menominee finally. (Literally, I spent more time there and back than actually AT the show, but at least I got to go this year) I got to bring my daughter too. (ANd no she didn't climb on anything at this event...)

I actually called "THe Boss" about this one. A V-8 powered Lark (type) that we all would fit in, plus with an auto so TB could drive it is pretty much exactly what I want. ALthough when I told her about it, her response was "ONly if you want to sleep in it in the backyard..." Oh well, gotta try anyway.

My daughter actually asked me to take her pic by this. "I like this one, can we get it Daddy?" ALso it was cool seeing what size it is. I guess I'm used to the dump-truck size of current pickups. (My father-in-law has a new Ram and brother in law has a couple F-250s. Those things look HUGE now after seeing this. ALso I think I've seen motorcylces with wider tires than what's on this pickup.

I really liked the color combo on this one. (THe interior was teal)

I thought this Champion was cool too, but since I got shot down on the other car (and I wasn't there long enough to find the owner of this one) I wasn't gonna ask about getting this.
SO with any luck I'll get to go to some more events in 2014, and be able to share the pix a little sooner. Thanks for looking!

HEY ! ! ! You're killin me here…. How much were the items that you show in the pics??? Curious minds wanna know.

12-14-2013, 02:54 AM
actually, I didn't ask because I knew I couldn't take any of it home...

Daan If the front seats folded down on that lark maybe you should have given it more thought about taking it home.

Your daughter likes uncut diamonds!!!!

Look at the two truck pictures in front of the hood. I spy a 62 Lark(?).

She sure isn't like her mother.

Looks like a great time. I'd have bought the Daytona if I were there.

As I've mentioned here before, my dad was from a town very close to Menoninee, I'd like to visit he place again.

They are having a zone meet with the swap meet in 2014. Hope to see you there.

"Champion"? ...what Champion?

Where was he from? I'm from a town close to Menominee, too...
ANd I wanted to take EVERYTHING home with me when I was there, but my lottery ticket didn't pay off.

I was there too, sold (practically gave away) a few things and had a good time. My first visit there, but hopefully not my last. I WILL be there next year for the Zone Meet & hope to see a huge bunch of Stude folks!

Glenwood City....a great place, fondly remembered from childhood visits.
