You northern California guys are lucky. We haven't had a swap meet down here in Southern California in some time. There used to be a good swap meet at "Best of France and Italy", but LA County began requiring business licenses for all swap meet sellers, and that put a damper on things.

Come on up, though you're in Capistrano, right? Bit of a drive.
Well, NorCal was always the #1 Alfa market per capita in the US. SoCal might have had more total cars but not on a relative basis, only absolute. I wrote an article for the Giulietta Register 'Letta on reasons why this might be so; the presence of Griswold here in Berkeley was a big part of that. That legacy continues.

I really want/ need to sell the wheels. It will help me get back some funds and space for the next 'fun' project of tackling the rust. I cant/ wont bring those with me unless I know theres a buyer though because my wife will already be annoyed they are coming one way, she will kill me if they come home too haha

I'm hoping to fly over from northern Nevada, IF I can get the starter on my Mooney fixed in time. It is unlikely.

I still have an interesting array of "old 2000" stuff that MUST be gone by late November. If it isn't, it'll probably end up in the dump.

So, I can fit just so much in my little plane. I've got a growing list of stuff posted in the classifieds, and usually cross linked in the 1900/2000/2600 forum.

If I can't make it to Tracy, there is a good chance I will have taken the plane to Rancho Murietta for repair, and could take specifically requested items there, which may then find a ride down to Tracy.

OK, now All-Italian Day is over, get the truck/wagon/goat cart packed with parts for the swap, this Saturday in Tracy at APE. Rumors abound there will be some roast pig, no joke, if all goes well.

We missed last year due to unforeseen global events, but past years have been well attended and fun. Yes Tracy is out there a bit, a mere 51.4 highway miles from Oakland. For you Journey fans, Steve Perry grew up in Banta (APE is on Banta Rd.) so make a pilgrimage.
