  1. A rough unrestored SD near me recently was sold for scrap after it failed to fetch any bids at auction. Someone cut the front nose off of it with a Sawzall to make a piece of furniture.
  2. I've always enjoyed selling on Saturdays at Hershey. We pack our "good" parts up Friday night, mark the prices way down and lay out a BIG spread of stuff we don't want to take back home. As the surrounding vendors leave one by one our spaces of parts are very visible to everyone still walking the Green Field, an island in a sea of parking lot. Everybody notices and they have to come and check out what we have. We sell a good bit of stuff and we meet many interesting people. Some thank us for staying open! We're out by 3 p.m. or so. One of my favorite days of the meet, weather permitting of course.
  3. There are no specific areas for petroliana, it is scattered everywhere throughout the swap meet fields. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking. You will not find much of anything Saturday.
  4. Olds in 1952, Pontiac in 1953.
  5. You either want to sell something or you don't.
  6. It should have been with the pre-registration packet you signed and sent in back in February. It's on a blue piece of paper.
  7. Check rule number 6 under C. General Requirements and Conditions. No excessive noise and fumes and no running of generators from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  8. 1953 Oldsmobile 88 series 4-door sedan, mounts horizontally above the stone guard on the left rear door.
  9. Stone guard fits 1953 Oldsmobile 88 series 4-door sedans, right side.
  10. It's a diecast radio speaker grille for an Oldsmobile, fits 1948 98 series and all 1949's.
  11. I'm a vendor in the middle of another Hershey field. I'm not in a hurry at all to get into my spaces, uncover and set up. When spectators arrive they usually start at one side of a field and work their way to the other side systematically row by row so it's awhile anyway til most of em reach me. Sunrise is at 7:12 a.m. and there's not much early action at all where I am. When the national anthem is played is when I get serious about vending. I follow all the rules, all my spots have plenty of real parts & literature for sale and a registered AACA seller is minding the stuff all day long. Being in a big hurry and rushing around just takes some of the fun out of it for me.I treat it more like a leisurely activity. It's not like I'm making $1000 an hour selling this junk. Here's to great weather and a wonderful time for all attending!
  12. Not auto related, part of a garage or building window.......I turn these knobs to open & close the windows in one of my storage sheds.
  13. I was researching the numbers about a particular car I own and according to the How Many Are Left Book, there were supposed to be 14 in existance but I had personally laid eyes on about 6 of them so I don't think the numbers were very accurate. Made for fun reading though.
  14. Yes there are shuttle buses running all the time all over the area. Stops include the AACA Museum, Hersheypark camping resort, Comfort Inn, Hershey Lodge and 3 flea market stops. Info is in the program near the front with the General Information.
