Torque Fest Swap Meet
SWAP MEET BIGGER AND BETTER THIS YEAR!
Many people came to the Vintage Torque Fest last year searching for those
elusive parts from yesteryear. While many people came away with some truly
rare finds - others were left wanting more. Well - in an attempt to give people
what they want.....Torque Fest has teamed up with the Tin Butchers to bring an
expanded swap meet! More space for a cheaper price! We still have the same
strict entry guidelines for people wanting to sell at the swap meet. But this year,
with the Tin Butchers, we will undoubtedly get a much larger swap meet.
If you dont know....the Tin Butchers put on the Scrap Drive. This is one of the
best PARTS ONLY swap meets in the midwest. Yes there are much bigger swap
meets........but those have tupperware, vinyl graphics, hot wheels, and
snowmobile parts. The Scrap Drive is one of those few shows that want ONLY
the good stuff and that is why Torque Fest is so happy to have these guys on
board with the event. They know how to do it right and we hope that people
here in the midwest will want to come out and dig some of the good stuff outta
their garage and bring it down on April 30, 2011. Seeya there with your '35 grills
and NOS 6 volt light bulbs....or whatever else you got hiding!!! Bring it down
and make some $$ and help your fellow hot rodders get their rides back on the
10 x 20 spots will be $30
(size of spot can be negotiated with Sam from Tin Butchers)
1 wristband will be given out per spot.
This wristband gets you into the show.
If you have extra people with you - they will have to pay the spectator fee to get
in to the show.
There have been a LOT of people really wanting to make this a part of the
show.........The Tin Butchers have stepped up and taken the responsibility.
There will be very strict guidelines for this swap meet.
NO HOT WHEELS (unless they are pre 1980) - NO DIECAST TOYS (vintage tin
toys are OK) - NO "new" MAGAZINES - Vintage only (pre 1970) - NO CLOTHING -
NO FOOD - NO MOTORIZED BAR STOOLS - NO SHAM WOWS - NO CERAMICS -
NO DOG TREATS - NO VINYL GRAPHICS - NO BEANIE BABIES - NO CALIFORNIA
DUSTERS - ETC
you get the idea
We would rather have 25 great car part vendors than 200 lame vendors that no
one cares to look at anyway.
At the gate, the Tin Butchers will be checking everyone out (and most likely
looking at your stuff to get first crack)
If you have questions about what is good and what is not - email me or Sam
Boelens can be reached at 815 973 9304.
