    It's funny, I've purchased random assortments of stuff around the $50 mark for the last three years. (Excluding the police wheels I bought @ $200 for a set in '17.)

    Magnum emblem (worn, but mine are all missing, maybe I can fix this one up a little.) $3

    All of the mudflaps you see (6) one set with likely unauthorized Chrysler pentastar. $3

    Car catalogs, '73 Dodge, '77 Cordoba and '78 Chrysler, 3 for $5

    A trashy looking air cleaner from which I'm going to harvest the snorkle for another project, then tig-weld the 4bbl base on to my RMB original 2bbl air cleaner so I can keep the stock cold air snorkle. (Too dirty for kitchen table display) $15

    Dark blue Tuff wheel that I'll have a leather wrap sewn on (it's kinda crummy at the top). $40

    Joined the WPC club! They were having a special deal where they pay for the $40 national membership. Most of the members look like they are 70+, I figure maybe they could use some new blood. Supposedly they are touring the "new" museum this summer. $6

    $72 total. Met up with a half dozen friends, including my old boss from my 1992 Ford co-op, now retired 14 years! (He was a Mopar drag racer, even while a Ford supervisor, lol!) I guess that's what you call "priceless"

    I picked a few things up and had an opportunity to meet @detmatt also.

    One guy in our Mopar club was a long-time GM employee at GM/Arlington in the paint shop. A few times, when he'd be in Detroit for new robotic paint shop training, he'd trailer his '69 Super Bee 440 Six Pack up there with him. He said he hit Woodward a few times, but usually ran the stock musclecar events in MI or OH, too. Winning his class on street tires. Later it was his '64 Fury Max Wedge car.

    And selling GM parts has covertly funded my Mopar activities for the past 4 decades.

    Glad you found the neat things at the WPC swap meet!

    Enjoy!

    Nick it was great to meet you and I’m glad you were able to find some treasures at the swap. The next one around here is my clubs spring show and swap at the Packard Provin Grounds at the end of April. The swap isn’t as big as this one but it’s getting bigger every year and the venue is a pretty incredible place that every car guy should see at least once for themselves.

    That's ok, I was supposed to connect with Murray Park as well and didn't see him either. He usually has a few tables against the wall, but he told me he was driving a smaller truck this year so I imagine that's why he didn't stand out.

    I bought these. I didn’t need the grille but it was too nice to pass up, up in the rafters it’ll go and hopefully I’ll never need it.
    I had Murray bring me several things for the green 67 and I have been setting aside things from the collection that I’ve recently purchased for him so he came to my shop on Saturday night to swap parts, have a couple of beers and some Green Lantern pizza.
