Default Lethbridge AB swapmeet

Was going to post this a little sooner but got tied up so to speak. Huge one day swap meet in Lethbridge Ab tomorrow. I think it is the 38 or 39th year for this show and they never advertise it very well.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Hi Dozer. There were four of us from Grande Prairie that went down there to Lethbridge. Did you go and did I walk right past you a couple of times?
I just had enough time to view all of the goodies, . and buy a few. It was a good swap-meet.

You bet I went, and yes we probably walked right past each other, I went around twice. Wasn't as many vendors as the last time I was there. I only bought one item, and early 50's Ram hood emblem for the Fast Four.

Dang, Dozer, we ALMOST met. I was wondering if any of the Undead Sled guys would attend Lethbridge.
One of my pals buys an early fifties Dodge hood ram emblem at every swap-meet and this one was no exception.

If I would have got the post up a few days earlier we probably could have arranged to meet. I bet your buddy got his early Mopar hood ornament just inside the entrance doors on the first or second table in the first isle to the right.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Snopro, there was a lot of old car things there, and some other antiques and nic-nacs, but the one thing that, I think, would have brought tears to your eyes was a four inch drop Model A axle with split wishbones and disc brakes with Chevy bolt pattern.

Not as much as two years ago but enough to keep you looking for a couple three hours.

That Chevy axle is off a crashed rod, it was there for sale two years ago. I just about bought it this time, but it has a nasty bend in the axle and I felt it carried some bad MOJO so to speak.

How did you know I was still looking for an axle with a Chevy bolt pattern?

Hmm yeah, if it had a bend I'd pass on it.

I'll definitely be at the Red Deer swap meet in the spring, regardless.

Snopro, I've been following your threads for years, and my wife says I remember every old car thing I ever heard but she grumbles that I forget Valentines Day sometimes----quite a bit actually. I was really looking at that axle for my new Model A, not yours at all.
Dozer, I missed the twist or bend in the axle but I really took my time thinking about it. If I hadn't've traded my nephew a couple of loads of gravel delivered for a dropped Model A axle, I should have bought that one.
