  • First Time, best day, First time

    Ok, first time for me...never been to any type of nationals....what is the best day to just see the cars, and what day, same would be nice, to go to the swap meet.

    Is there a separate car corral for vehicles for sale?

    Second best day picks would be nice too, just in case I work.

      For the swap meet, the earlier in the week you go the better the selection will be as items get sold. The swap meet is often worth going through more than once as it is impossible to notice everything one trip through, IMO. Have fun!

        You will have a great time! Don't forget to go through the hotel parking lots too. Some of the nicest people ever are usually sitting in a chair nearby.

            Come to the Cruise In downtown on Thursday night, also check out the hotel parking lots in the evenings as Bob suggested.

                    We are going on Route 66. I am starting in LA, so makes more sense. I hope to see you at SB and talk to you about your Cruiser (parts car).

                        At least, all of the winning cars will be pictured in Turning Wheels.
