January 2013 Turlock Swapmeet

January 2013 Turlock Swapmeet

Remember the first time you touched a boob? That’s the feeling I get whenever the January Turlock swapmeet rolls around and this year was no different. About a week beforehand I walked my sideyard and garage and listed everything I didn’t want on Craigslist and netted a wallet full of cash to spend in the annual Modesto Area Model A’s world famous swap meet. Armed with... 

Twelve Hours of Turlock Swapmeet

Twelve Hours of Turlock Swapmeet

The Big One… the January Turlock Swapmeet. I never miss this one. Pete wanted to leave early, like ass-crack of dawn early, which I was okay with. Some plans were struck and we met at Nations before the sun rose. We didn’t leave until after the sun set. Scored some great stuff and had a fun day hanging out with my Dad and friends!!  Read More →

January Turlock Swap Meet Madness 2011

January Turlock Swap Meet Madness 2011

At the end of every January is one of the most awesome yearly pilgrimages I and many many others make; the Turlock Swap meet. It draws people from the globe over. My Pop shows up around 7:15 and we get on our way to the show, are with hot coffee and backpacks. After finding parking and walking half a mile back to the fairgrounds, we stand in line for fifteen minnutes until we get to the...

Stockton CA Car Show and Swap Meet

Matt, Gabe, and I headed out to the Stockton swap meet Sunday to see if we couldn’t find more junk we needed. I have a fairly small list these days (surprisingly!) although I try to never miss a swap meet. The rain kept a lot of swappers away, but we were still able to find a couple good deals. Matt and his 1969 Buick Skylark Sweet little Nova gasser for sale, already solid axled...

The January Turlock is always one of the best swapmeets I hit yearly, and this year was no exception! Great place to scrounge up hot rod parts and this year was important becausing I was relaying the Satellite to it’s new owner! We’ll start off on a hazey Saturday morning, about 8:00 or so. We’d all been up really late drinking heavily and barbecuing, and I personally...

Turlock Swapmeet 8.30.09

For years, I’ve always gone to swap meets with my friends. The last few swap meets I’d gone to I’ve gone with my Dad, and seen my friends there. This time my Dad couldn’t go, and it coincided with the Hayward-on-the-Hill swap meet, so my buddies were headed that way. I was going to hit a swap meet all by my lonesome!!

Turlock Swap Meet – January 2008

Always a ton of fun, the January Turlock Swapmeet is the BIG one of the year. I was so excited, I couldn’t get to sleep until about 2:30, and then had to wake up at 5:30 AM. I was lucky, I didn’t really want to drive, but was able to catch a ride with Greg and Justin. Matt’s little Chevy Nova Wagon. Look how dark it is outside! Jeremy’s 1951 Chevy Truck. Always...
