Myself and at least four or five others in Henry's A's. It is easy for us as we're only 60 miles or so away. Sometimes it's a cold muddy mess but it has always been well attended in the years I have gone. Upon leaving I like to hit the Home Town Buffet to dry out, thaw out and fill the aching stomach. Then try to sleep going home, but my passengers seem to panic and wake me up.

See y’all there.
Sounds like the rain has moved out a bit, only 20% chance for Saturday.

Wouldn’t miss it. My 49th year in a row. Go 49ers! No so much a place to find parts that you now probably don’t need, but great chance to see old friends you may not see till next Turlock!

I intended to have my home grown motorhome ready for this years tour around the warmer states in time to drive it to Turlock. Not quite ready yet, so I'm flying south for the weekend and driving across Canada to the little states next week sometime. See you all there.

I found a nice set of licence plates and an original kerosene tail lamp for my '21 T.

I was there also, with the following observations:

1. There are only 2-3 vendors left that specialize in Model A parts and accessories. The remaining Model A parts are scattered around the remaining vendors. One gets the feeling that most good, reasonably priced Model A parts were long ago picked, and what we see now are the left overs.
2. I never saw so many Chevy C-10 pickups for sale in the used vehicle area. The TV reality shows that are modifying these trucks must be responsible for the popularity.
3. It is still fun to poke around with the hopes of finding a needed Model A part in a dirty box in the back of a vendors stall that no body else has found!
4. You need to get there at 7:00AM when they open and make a quick inspection of the Model A vendors that are there every year for your parts needs. The good stuff is always gone by 8:00.

Got there at 7:20 on Saturday and left around 4:00 when most vendors were putting away or gone. Didn't see it all.
Bought a pair of 21" wheels (75.00), a pair of front bumper bolts (whatever they're called), a "C" head that appears uncracked (40 bucks), almost new Model A exhaust (5 bucks), 2 Model A headlights (not gems, but pretty fair and complete, buck apiece) and my nephew got quite a few odds and ends. Lots of "C" heads there priced from 10 bucks for obviously broken to 150 for krylon coated.

Had a great time.
