Ford Spring Swap Meet in Columbus

I'm in Columbus Ohio this weekend for the Ford Spring Swap Meet, which opened to the public today at 0900. Yesterday was vender set-up and if any really trick parts were going to be found it usually happens on Friday. All the usual suspects are here...Perkins, Meyer, Vanderwall, Sizemore, Wicks, Branda, Perogie, SEMO, etc. There are some good parts to be had but the prices are up as you might expect. Bought an aircleaner to hood seal for $500 (for a member on this site), alternator and PS belts (1-each) for $550, shift knob for $800, 428 bucket and snorkle for $1,000, tire for $2,500, and some other little stuff. Found some GT/CS scripts, two sets of NOS hood pins, and one NOS side scoop for GT/CS, but that's about it for CS. Lots of GT wheels (chrome and argent) were pretty cheap though. If you've never been to this meet, it's a good one to attend. Just Ford stuff, so no wading through a bunch of parts you don't care about to get to the blue ones.

Scott;
Should of let me know you were attending this swap meet.
I worked security at it yesterday in the Celeste Building from 6 am to 12:30 pm. I could of got you in before 9 am and saved you a few bucks. It's put on by the Mid Ohio Ford Club. Didn't leave until they closed at 6 pm last night. I usually attend or work both this one and the one put on by United Ford Owners (UFO). They had some pretty interesting stuff in the car corral. Did you see the 68 White Shellby they were asking $57,000 plus for and it's condition. Marti report on it showed the car was originally Lime Gold and not Wimbledon White. They actually have 3 buildings with stuff in them, Celeste Building, Multi-Purpose Building and the Buckeye Building along with the car corral.

I heard about this show and figured Don would be there!

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

Don,
I should have guessed you were there. Bob Perkins got me a wrist band so I was there on Friday and early Saturday before the crowds. But I'll remember you for the fall meet. It sure was nice walking around there today with the crowds thinned out. Did you hear anything about someone stealing a carb from Ulrey?

Don,
If the 68 Shebly was white and had a dented left rear qrt. I passed on that car a couple weeks ago for $42,500. It was listed on ebay and did not meet reserve. It was very rough underneath. Sounds like the new owner was trying to roll it for a quik 15K. Is anyone going to Charlotte or Spring Carlisle?

If you guys come out next year let me know in advance. I can get the wrist bands from a friend of mine at work who belongs to the Mid Ohio Ford Club. Plus, I'm usually always working security there during the event. Also, if you come out for the UFO swap meet in November (usually around thanksgiving weekend) let me know. I also work that one. I'll almost bet you walked right by me. Worked the main entrance at the Celeste building (had on a green vest with "SECURITY" on the back). There were 3 of us there along with a State Trooper. Also wore my Royal Maroon GT/CS shirt. Didn't buy any parts this year pretty much have everything I needed at this point. Did do a lot of walking though just looking at stuff.

If I'm not mistaken that incident happened over in the Multi-Purpose building. One of the State Troopers I was with had to respond to it. Don't know what the outcome was though. It's amazing in all the years I've worked this event this is the first time we've actually had a problem of this type. Hope to hear from you guys next year.

Danny;
That's the one. Looked like shit underneath. Hood was even taped down with duct tape. Car must have been sitting in a field for sometime. Most of the undercarriage was rotted. I sure as hell wouldn't pay what they wanted for it.

Might be a good idea for all of us to wear our GT/CS shirts at ALL shows we attend.

The bad part of the whole deal is I had plenty of beer at the house to. Would of given me a good excuse to drink some of it. On second thought I don't need an excuse to drink it.

At least this year we had much better weather than last year. Had rain and snow the whole show last year and with the wind it was colder than shit.

Yes, that is the car I looked at, the seller from So. Md. told me he accepted
$42,500 for the car. I have no reason to doubt him. Did you see the handy work to the tail light panel, talk about a hack job. I guess the new owner was trying to roll it.
