  3. New Scammer?

    keiser Has saved me about 50 times on great Info!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. I am gonna weigh in again, My father did 52 years selling and dragged me and my brother all through the 60's and 70's till he passed in 2012 Life member,as are me and my brother. Me and my brother have his ten spots my brother comes all the way from Colorado every year and I from tenn. we each use 5 spaces both of us park our truck and trailer utilizing the whole 100' on back side of all ten spaces leaving all 22 1/2' X 100' for selling, we fill every square Inch with parts from my 10k lb. trailer and back of my Ram truck with my brothers 20' and dually. we sleep in our enclosed cargo trailers it takes us 4-5 hours to setup and each day it takes approximately 1-1 1/2 hours to cover all ground parts and everything under the canopies each night. I love it but its hard work. I would never be able to remove all the steel parts unload and setup popups and then move my truck and trailer somewhere else, My complaint is the dam idiots like I said before that pile in a 11 pass club van buy a space pull in get out setup a freaking card table put a broken carburetor and couple license plates and leave for the day, as for the 150k dollar motor homes, they pull in with 5-6 spots and have not much either, don't know the answer, but I got two of my buddies to buy three spots this year each, over in Red in the far corner by the main road and they said since Herco closed some entrance by my chocolate field south people traffic was great, these guys each brought trailer load of parts and never vended and are both younger 43 and younger,so I did my part to get other guys who never sold there before. So if every guy gets a few new guys to buy spots to sell, and Hershey AACA does there part we can continue to build the Greatest show! My father came till he could not come anymore and said his heart was always at Hershey. So many people let money and power kill great traditions! Work together and make it better. I like the idea someone said put all the modern tool,buffers,sandblasters trailer venders in one area,and the clubs in another, how is always the question. thanks to all who volunteer!

  8. radiator leak idea?

    Thanks to all, I guess I will drain and pull and take to shop, all other ideas would be a good highway road fix but solder will most likely be best. thanks again for all Inputs.
  9. radiator leak idea?

    I Have a radiator in my 1929 with a small pin hole leak at top left of radiator is there a old trick to add to radiator to stop a small leak but not clog the rod cores, like the stuff that the parts stores sell today gums up everything??? Idea's ??
  10. your in the parts for sale page, you need be in the parts wanted section. Good Luck
  11. Hershey in the spring?

    I stopped going to Charlotte two years ago, I went for many years selling and buying, Seems all tools,buffing,sandblasters,reproduction, every corner is reproduction chevy ford, nothing really in early parts anymore, all hot rod and muscle and modern stuff. It used to be really good, I suppose you can find some stuff, but if your into early 20s cars plus 1928-1932 Plymouth desoto chrysler dodge just not there In my opinion or worth the drive for me. good luck

  13. Vacant vendor spaces

    All Good Points, I rough it in my enclosed cargo trailer, I would love to close up and walk but to many people come from a far looking for parts, my obligation is to be open at 8am and start closing at 5pm each day, thats my dedication to the preservation of the hobby and originality.
  14. Vacant vendor spaces

    My Biggest Complaint every year as a vendor, when the customer gets a little tired and he comes up on my row, he may look down and see club vans parked all over my row and say to himself I will skip this row and go to a better row with more rusty gold, a van, sub lease a space from someone not going, and all of a sudden 9 guys jump out and walk. They put one freaking carburetor and a couple yankee lens on a table to act like there selling while there eating lunch then back at it. That's what needs to be enforced, If a guy can spend all his money to come from Norway and boost the local economy as well, should he not deserve a chance at finding his parts he is in need of? Instead of walking around a 50' motorhome's with three parts out front. I don't know the answer, I love Hershey my father did 52 years selling, its in mine and my brothers blood.If something is not done to curb the problems, I fear less and less people will come. It takes me weeks to start preparing all the stuff to bring, My sales were down a solid 30% from last year and the weather was pretty much perfect. Also maybe another answer is see if Carlisle and Hershey can spread farther apart on dates so we have more people dedicated to the preservation of Hershey.Just thoughts still love it.
