Hello,
I need a set of front bumpers for my '59.
If you have a set let me know.
Thanks,
Dave

Nothing really shows up at Pomona anymore! A few vendors and the random part! I doubt there are many hardcore used parts buyers, except maybe Dave! Guy by the pretty parts, unless they really have a true project needing everything!

The NCCA and their NorCal events, still has a decent swap, but that is a shadow of what it used to be! I was going to get rid of some stuff too, I wonder if a small lot meet would work! The Porsche guys do this one a year!

The Pomona swap meet is the biggest and best in the state. Went there regularly for many years for Vette parts, though have not attendee in over a decade.

Pamona. Or Turlock in January. Better results with less work, I would post it up in the PARTS section of this forum, and on Craigslist, too. Very easy on the seller.

Make a list of what you have with a price and post it here and the NCRS sale section. If nothing else you will have less to haul around. There are far MORE knowledgeable and needy people in these venues than a swap meet.

Assuming Carlisle (PA) makes your "within a couple days drive" requirement, its the best one.

Not what it used to be, but still the best one left.
