View Full Version : what sells at swap meets?

I was wondering what sells at swap meets. I have limited room as this is an art show tour trip. I'm bringing Ige some 80 cruise parts for free. I'm bringing a set of 5 80 wheels and lug nuts for Corbet. That is probably going to max me out. But I have some weird stuff I thought of trying to fit if I could. I have a set of 5 disc brake 40 wheels minus hubcaps. Are they worth something? Would they sell? I have a 40 hood which would be a real PITA. I have a rear PS 80 series door green that I could probably sneak in. Do you think it would sell? I also have a set of really nice 80 series factory control arms with the factory bushings in good shape. A mini tranny cooler, a PS cooler off an 80, I have other misc. 40,55,60,80 stuff but nothing that has ever been a really hot item. I mean I have a gas door for a 69 FJ55. It could be a real treasure for someone missing one but I also don't want to drag all this crap there and have to drag it home. My motivation for bringing this stuff is that by the time this trip is over I will have logged 10,000 miles on the 80 since Rubithon. I'm BROKE! An boy did I get upset when I looked at some trip pictures from September 1997 and saw gas prices of $1.21/gallon in the background. My income certainly didn't increase at that rate!

I wouldn't drag anthing down here you haven't sold and are delivering. IMHO it's hit or miss...

Agreed. Post up all the stuff in advance and get buyers.

OK, I'm not going to bother then. I'm already packing and I don't leave until Monday. Too much junk!
