I showed up about noon yesterday, wasnt as big as everyone said it would be. Walked the whole thing in about 45 minutes. Seemed a lot of vendors were heading home early. Not to bad for the 1st time they tried it, hopefully the next one is bigger. Maybe they should incorporate a cruise in or car corral. There was some nice cars in the parking lot.

Not really Mark, lot of 50-70's classic car parts, couple 1st gen Camaro shells and just a lot of trinkets and misc. I saw 1 dragster and a blower motor but not much else. Looks like a lot of guys were just cleaning out their garages.
