I'm taking my Taco pickup there, so if any NE Ohio LEAKOILERS need something hauled back, let me know. I gave away a lot of parts during the pandemic. Dawn was happy. Happiness extends only as far as the next swap meet.

Rainy drive up for the first hour, but it cleared up nicely. Biggest disappointment? Ted was a no show (at least when I was there.) He has young kids so I can't judge.

Biggest positive surprise? The Captain showed and was an active swapper. :D

They moved the show from Riverside Park in Yipsilanti to a Mega Mall (Briarwood?) in Ann Arbor. I know in years past there were flooding issues at Yipsilanti (at times) and I'm sure the MVVWC had other issues they had to deal with involving the Yipsilanti location prompting them to move the show to Ann Arbor.

First off, the show was very well organized. They had an area in the Mega Mall parking lot designated for the show/swap and it was fine as far as Mega Mall parking lots go. They had plenty of Porto-Potties and a Boy Scout troop was volunteering at all the entry points. They had the usual car show DJ spinning tunes. (I only wish Aaron would have been subjected to that ;) ) They had their swag booth set up for sales and they had a decent turnout by the time I left. The swap was a little dissapointing, but I sensed Michigan was about a week or two behind Ohio in coming out of COVID and that may have accounted for the low swap turnout.

All in all, I give positive feedback to the work of the Michigan Club. They pulled it off and it can only get better! God willing, I'll return next year.

Who said I take crappy pictures? :lol:

Sorry Sean. I had a tub to install in the kids bathroom and that was the only day for a while that I could muster help. The truck made an excellant work platform.
