Jon and Jif,

I meant old like as in a fine wine that gets better as the years pass .

If the weather stays nice, you might even drive your jeep to show off?!

See you in Acton.

No you don't have to register but I appreciate the "heads up" that you're will be there. Arrive between 7 and 7:15. Tables are $20 for any number up to 3.
That's total not each.

Thanks again for a great swap meet. I had a great time catching up with y'all and filling up a pickup truck with rusty goodies. A certain Mr Loy made the comment that I "was saving money" by buying all that stuff. Im still working that one out.

Thanks to all those who loaded my MB engine in the truck. What a pleasent surprise to come outside and see everyone just finishing up. I must be lucky cause it always seems to work out that way.

Thumbs up Acton show

Hi Jordan,

It was nice to meet you and put a face to the name. I was one of the guys that helped load your engine. I am amazed by the amount of stuff that still shows up at these shows, I think you should bring a bigger truck next year. I hope that you can find the parts to repair your transmission. I couldn't even fit in a carrier, let alone shift that crashbox trans with the gear shift pattern reversed! I have a C-15 that I will start on this year and Brian Asbury sold me some nice stuff. I hope to see you again.

Same here, And thanks for helping to load it. My uncle and I got the engine unloaded and sitting on a steel table in the barn with the tractor. The trans shouldnt be a problem as it was working fine in that condition. The carrier is supper easy to shift as the shifter just moves in nice big slots, there is no guess work with it.

Best of luck with your C15a. Brian is a great guy and lots of neat little bits
