Guys, Gals, Germs and Worms,

These events and opportunities are where we get good stuff cheap.  If you attend, don't be surprised if you see Calvin and I each carrying a transmission.  And that will be after we go to a flea market at 4:00am.  If anyone wants to ride along to the flea market let me know...

Thank you for the heads up for these events. Do you guys have a calendar of all, or just keep an eye on sources like facespace?

Do some gym work on the leg press and then take an ox yoke. Real men can carry a couple of LSs.

Are you allowed bags, buckets, anything like that? Seems like pulling a bunch of valuable small parts and bundling them would be a good way to go, too. How many Eaton superchargers can you carry??

do they allow multiples, ie $100 for two people using straps to carry a mid-70's Caprice hood that is stacked with parts?  me and my buddy Big John got a whole mess of stuff that way a long time ago.

I was also wondering if it's one trip, only, or can you go as many times as you'd like?

Are you taking orders for swap meet finds? I need some parts but my wife keeps my schedule jam packed.

We don't need a weight lifting trainer.  I bought (2) 5.3s in Philadelphia for $100 and we carried them into the barn last night.

I build a calendar with the flea markets and other major events at the beginning of each year.

Yes on orders.  You need to address the scheduling thing.

Peel off a hood first; two people, $100, easy to carry lots of tonnage!

These sales are not around me, and I would probably explode my back or knee trying to carry an engine.

I like concept of these, but I’ve already had two hernia surgeries.  I’m hoping to avoid a third.
