Car shows/Swap meets

When I was restoring my 1972 Oldmobile, I used to attend some giant swap meets in Carlisle, PA, Hershey, PA, and Charlotte, NC. These shows had amazing numbers of new and used parts for the more popular American cars (Camaros, Corvettes, Mustangs, etc.). Does anyone know of such a swap meet that specializes in or even includes Z cars? I'm getting tired of looking on ebay for used parts and my local junkyards are pretty much tapped out.

Virtual swap meets seem to be more common place - such as the Classified Ads section on this site. What parts are you looking for on your 77?

Re: Car shows/Swap meets

What parts do you need? At the moment I have a complete running wreck in my garage. 77 and 78 aren't that different.

I believe the Food Lion Auto Fair is in Charlotte this weekend. There are vendors, etc.

Also this weekend is the Emerald City Z Club Shine and Swap outside of Greenville NC.

There are usually great deals there. Most of the parts are from cars that people have parted out and these are the left over trim and mechanical parts. Some of the folks show up with a trailer load of parts. Contact Roger at [email protected] if interested for times and location.

The Triangle Z Club out of Greensboro hosted a swap meet this past spring, they may do another one this comming spring, you never know.

Regards,

There is an Emerald City near my house. Only they specialize in strippers not Zs...
