    I'll be there in line Friday 12:00 , north end , by the "hill". I hate the hill so I climb it first thing while I'm fresh and have energy LOL. Look for the old fat guy with my little red wagon "on a leash". I invented using a bungee cord to tie the wagon to my belt loop. It saves tugging on my shoulder all day and frees up another hand . Did it ten years ago at the Big 3 for the first time and have done it ever since.

I ran into Randy a little after twelve on Friday.  His wagon was still empty so I guess he had just gotten started ?  I walked the entire area, 4 hours, and spotted a few things CJ and FE.  Pretty thin seemed like a lot of after market, Scott Drake type stuff, was there for sale.  The other CJ and FE stuff was being ' offered ' at ebay prices and certainly no bargains.  Went back on Saturday spent another 4 hours walking the rows and same result.  Pretty sparse for the odds and ends that interest me.  Now randy, on the other hand, probably scored big time.  Some guys are just better at this than others.  I didn't leave without something so while it's always entertaining and fun it's even better when you can find something you can't live without.  Brian

    Brian,
         I filled my wagon 4 times, twice on Friday and twice on Saturday. Found a stash of CJ stuff on Saturday. My friend bought an NOS SCJ flywheel in the Ford box! I got a single CJ head as I think someone here needs a single. Great weekend for me.
