  • South Bend Swap

    I usually go every year, but with the International Meet a month later at same locale, does attendance(cars, swap booths, etc) typically suffer when these coincide?

    I'm sure with them being within about 6 weeks of each other it will effect attends for people from far away but locals will be there for both meets .

        As a swapper I'm still on the fence.It's a 9 hour drive and 2 nights hotel fee's and if the buyers arent there it doesnt make financial sense.Catch 22...vendors say they might not go,buyers stay home and visa versa

            I'll just about bet the parts will be cheaper at the swap meet than at the International. And there is always a lot of Studebakers plus other old ones. I need to finish my list of parts. Hoping I can take a load of parts up next year.

            As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

                Bob40....you sound just about like me ....I'm about 8 hours from SB and I don't know if I want to spend the extra this spring with 2 trips . Definately going in June but I too am on the fence about May . The only thing is I got a car I want to sell this spring and it may help by taking it in May as well as June.

                        I'll be at both, since I'm a whopping 116 miles south on US 31. <G> I am planning on bringing all my displays and parts up the weekend before, so I can drive the 52 ragtop up to the International meet. and I WON'T buy gas at the Marathon in Roselawn again! BOSEG
