Re: OSHKOSH Update!!!

do they sell between vendors before open to the public?

No. Some meets have a day to set up and that's when the vendors can sell to each other. Usually MARC swap meets begin when vendors arrive....

Re: Chickasha disappointment.

MARC meets and Model A Days at the Model A Museum in Gilmore are as good as it gets for Model A swaps. I'm really looking forward to Hershey this year also.

It was the place where we...

Re: 28 model A VIN location

I had to laugh when I first registered A495 for a title in Montana. No inspection but the woman at the desk was, 'Wow, I've never seen a VIN number that low.'
