    Those outbuildings will still be there waiting for you when you're done vending. And you might even come home with some new stuff to put inside them!!

    Right on both counts. The work can wait the few days of the meet. And yes, if you aren't careful you may bring home more stuff. After the swap meet at the Springfield IM we had trouble with getting everything home even though we sold a lot of stuff.

        Will any of you chrome vendors be there with a rear bumper for a 53 Starliner? I bought a rear bar for my 51 Landcruiser last year but lost his card.

          Borgers, Hackney and Lindsey are generally there with new chrome. You can get their contact from March issue of Turning Wheels. Lindsey normally has the biggest display of bumpers.

            John, At 76 I'm finding there are many things I don't know. Among them is my condition next year. If you have both the opportunity and incentive to go to South Bend, do it!!

            I don't know when my last trip will be but I hope it won't be from many years ago.

              This is the first time I will have to miss my pilgrimage to May in South bend in many years I have an event at home on the Thursday before the meet, and am being honored at a Veterans event on Sunday in Davenport, Iowa; SO the decision has been made to pass on this great meet; but I will be in Mansfield. THANKS TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS THAT HAVE KEPT THIS MAY SWAP GOING FOR ALL THESE MANY YEARS!!

                  I didn't start to feel like I was getting old until after I was 75.

                    Comfort Suites is the closets one where all the Studebaker after hour happens. A couple miles from the fair grounds. Just north a mile from Comfort Suites is a new Holiday Inn Express.
