Chickasha Swap Meet

by Willy Vinton

After showing the museum's 1932 Cadillac at the Amelia Island Concours, my wife and I traveled to Oklahoma for the Chickasha Prewar Swap Meet. Due to some unforeseen computer problems, all my pictures were lost so this is the best I have. The weather cooperated very well, with lots of sunshine and temperatures that reached 86 F. There was a lot of "stuff" and a few cars for sale, such as this early REO, plus numerous model Ts and As. As always, I managed to find a few good items.

Next we traveled in to Oklahoma City, toured a few collections and saw some really fine cars. Wilma even had a good time, was impressed with some of the cars and enjoyed meeting the people involved. This week I am off to the annual Bakersfield National Swap Meet put on by the Horseless Carriage Club of America. These meets are invaluable for locating hard-to-find parts for antique cars, so wish me luck! In return, I promise to do a better job of reporting on the trip and have decent pictures to share.
