    Ok here it is Nasty Cold here in Michigan,Snow, 20-30 mph gusting ,wind temps 20-30 below. I start thinking about cars shows and Swap Meets coming up. The first is one of my Favorites, its the all Ford Swap in Columbus Ohio April 5-6. Great show ALL Ford Parts. This is a great Spring Time Road Trip of ours here at the Ford Dealership in Muskegon 6hrs South from us. Is there anyone elese planning to go to this Show yet???:hmmm: :thumbs2:
    My secound Show will be a Big Swap Meet and Car Show in Wisconsin at the IOLA Swap. HUGE!! been there 2 times, it takes 2 Days to cover all the Venders well. This Show is July10th-13, I recommend it.:D

    Think Spring, I know I am.

    I went three years straight with my kids , now since unemployed I have no money to do anything right now . One of the best places I have found for Ford parts. A great bunch of people up there. Have fun to anyone that goes. :tiphat:

    I am thinking abt the Iola Show. The only problem for me is it's to close to the Gathering in/nr Cincinatti, OH which I hve plans for. I wud like to go to Iola; I've been there once in 09 when & where I bought my Comet. I had plans of going in 2012 but had knee surgery and was not able to attend.

    That is one show I have always wanted to attend. Wish I was closer. Of course....I do make the trek to Carlisle....so Iola is not out of the question.

    Last time I went to Iola Show,I walked thru maybe 3/4 of just the Swap area and it took me 11 Hrs. It takes a good 2-Day trip to get thru the whole Swap Meet and the Car Corral area. Lots of good stuff!
    Oh and they have deep fried Cheeze Curds and Point Beer M-mmmm.:bananaman

    Is it worth staying an extra day on my business trip to see it? If so I will try to book my Columbus trip that week.

    I would say it is one show worth going to. It is a crap shoot as far as Maverick parts go.

    I hardly missed this show until recent years. Since this is the first year with my first house, and I have a garage to work on my Maverick, missing this show is not an option! Plus I'm meeting friends to pick up some Maverick parts.
