Chickasha, OK Pre-War Swap Meet

Recommended Posts

Quite a few Pre-War Buick enthusiasts at the annual Chickasha Meet yesterday. Next year's meet is changing to Friday and Saturday only, not Thursday and Friday as before, in an effort to attract more participation from those who have to work during the week or take off from work.

Well, let's see (not in any order) there's Randy Dekker, Bill Sullivan, Mark Shaw in that cool 'got buick' hoodie, Larry DiBarry, Terry Wiegand, Larry Schramm, Ben Bruce, Paul Ayres, Chuck Nixon, and Hugh Heidlen.  There are a few others that their names escape me.  And a good time was had by all.

The guy in the white shirt, first from the left is Bill Bicknell, aka Professor Nailhead on the '54 Buick Highway. Not an easy task to get everybody together for a shot like this, how was that orchestrated?

We've been doing this group photo at the same location, same time, same date for several years now, so most of us know where and when to show up. Terry Wiegand also puts a reminder on this forum a few weeks ahead of time.

Others in the photo: Ben Garland, Mark Shaw, Sandy Rose, John Velde,

Swap meet was a success to me, I came home with a `35 Pontiac part, also saw a few `36 Buick items but didn`t need anything for my Buick project. I was standing behind the guy taking the picture, figured you Buick nuts might have ran me out of the building if I tried to get in the picture since I had my Pontiac hat on.. HA!!    Tom Northcutt  Luella, Tx

Heard a lot of talk from the vendors and attendees that moving the meet to Friday and Saturday is going to help a lot with attendance from vendor and attendee standpoint.  When this meet started in 1990 it was a three day meet with Friday being the big day for everybody.  This is still a great meet because a person doesn't have to wade through tons of Camaro and Mustang junk to find the old stuff that they are looking for.  Getting back to the group photo - Gregg Lange was there but he did not get over to the photo op in time.  Lamar, what does the dark circle with the plus sign in it and the numerals 55 stand for in my avatar?  I understand the reason(s) for this software update/upgrade but it sure puts a huge kink in a smooth running operation like we had.  Why can't the IT people who run and monitor this website create and turn loose something against the bastards who created all of the havoc on here that would just lock up their computers permanently - as in a type of self destruct internally type of thing?  I'm told that there is something like that that could be done.

So, there is no truth to the rumor that (well spaced) donuts were placed on the floor to make this pic happen?

Terry that number represents your "reputation" and is based on how many posts you have made that have been "Liked". For instance I just clicked the like button on this post and your reputation grew from 56 to 57. However there is no "dislike" button...

If you haven't already, go upstairs to the BCA General Forum and the For Support and you will see some Q&A regarding the new upgrade.

And re "why don't we turn loose something that would just lock up their computers permanently".... do you really want to p*** this guy off. On second thought, you just might. :D

 I took a few photos of cars for sale at the meet so I have downloaded a few.  This was my first Chickashe Pre-war and was surprised on the volume of Model T 'stuff'.  Must be a great place to find anything you need for a 'T'.  Lots of Model A stuff also. Nice restorable Lincoln Zephyr V12, nice running light blue 1911 Hudson, and a pair of 1932 Buick headlights and parking lights for only $1000, I shoulda picked them up for spares :D

Thanks for posting the pics Chuck. Was there a price tag on the Zephyr? Any 20's/30's Buick roadsters there for sell?

A Northwest member of HCCA & travel buddy bought the 1910 Model 10 Buick for sale outside the big building.  He is a Northwest member of HCCA.  He & I flew back to Seattle on the same plane along with Steve Hammatt (the license plate vendor where the photo was taken).

This was our first Chickasha meet and we did have a good time. The 3,300 mile trip was a bit much. It was good to connect with my Buick buddies and stop over at Terry W's in Doo Da. 1920s Buick stuff was almost non existent as the only thing I saw was a set of 1926-27 headlights for sport models that are the all nickel plated brass ones. Same condition as all the others I have seen ( the buckets all split up).The vendor was never around to talk to.. The Thursday evening collection tours were the highlight of our trip. Here is a photo of Pete taking the photo posted above of the group.DSCF4962.JPG

Here's the 1910 Buick chassis (with fenders and I think part of an extra engine) that was for sale at the meet and is now headed for the Northwest.
