LOL! Mine too. I missed 4280's stall though. I found 6161 - 6164 at PIR and the guys there didn't know who/what I was talking about so then I figured out 4280's stall is at the Expo center which I only hit lightly the day before. Not a lot of Mustang parts at any rate. Got an insert for my gas cap and a side marker light. Found a decent turn signal hood but it was gone when I went back to buy it so maybe next year!
Too much Chev stuff. Where were all the Mustang bits??? I spent nearly the full 12 hours there on Friday. Saw everything at both venues... twice! Met BossBill at PIR. Missed 4280 somehow. After all of that, I spent more money on parking, admission and hot dogs than on car parts! Booo. Oh well. I have a lot of other higher priority work on this Mustang that the performance bits I was looking for. Had a good time overall but didn't bother going back Saturday. Just worked on my car instead!
Bought all my stuff on Saturday after walking 6 hours on Friday . Saturday I spent another 6 hours between the 2 swap meets .
I was surprised by how large the PIR swap meet was this year . I think it was the largest in the 9 times I've been there . Saw a fair bit of Mustang parts at the track .
Bought an Edelbrock new aluminum water pump for early 289/302 for $40
Motorsports new aluminum pulley set for $90
non cracked headlight bucket with new headlight door and adjustable bucket for $35
Also saw a Mexican 302 short block standard bore for $350 ...pointed out by Troy
I bought a 28 spline traction lock center section, an almost new Mighty Demon 850, some VW intake manifolds and Cragar lugnut washers. I didn't see a single '69 Mustang there. Lots of '65-'66s and one '70.
Anybody else check out the dark green '66 A-code coupe? All original, pony interior, 4-sp, factory disks, rally-pac, style steel, very clean, looked like a smokin' deal for somebody at $5995. A refreshing change from all of the $4995 cars being offered at $8995. I was tempted by the '61 T-Bird Sports Roadster at $8500, too- looked like all it was missing were the Kelsey Hayes wires, and I don't care if I ever have to clean another one of those.
I was hidding from you in plan site at my stall, EXPO! LOL
There was one 69 fastback pictured for sale in a book at my stall. Wish my friend would of brought it. May have sold.
Sold half my stuff, paid for the stalls/room, had a good time. Purchased a 65-66 bench seat with new upholstry for $100.00 sold it for $200.00 Picked up a 69 metal hood with a boss 429 scoop glass onto it. Did not sell , have it for next year. Got an offer on my DT250 motorcycle for $1750.00 , Should of taken it I guess. All in all was nice to see and meet some of the VMF crew. Glad everyone took me up on my offer to leave there parts in my trailer/stall. Hope you all had as good of time as we did.
Is there anyone around Seattle who is skilled at working on cars, is maybe retired (or not), always needs a project to work on, enjoys teaching???
I bought a 1965 coupe recently. Hood mostly restored to be daily driver. I don't know anything about cars to start and this is my first vintage car...
what are some good mustang parts stores in the Portland area. I know of rose city mustang, and Aldridge motorsports(was told a decent mustang parts supplier) are there really any others.
also know about all american classics up in vancouver, just I don't have much day time to check these...
