Well my weekend at the swap meet went pretty well. It's a 4 hour drive from my home in Northern Michigan to Detroit, and an hour from home we hit a deer with my buddies new Dodge Ram! Luckily only the bumper and grille were damaged, and we could continue on to the swap meet. I've been to alot of swap meets as a buyer, but this was the first time I ever tried to sell anything. My goal was to clean out the leftover parts from my projects and make a little extra cash. It started out great, I sold $700 of my junk by 9 am, and I sold another $400 by the end of the first day which was almost 3/4 of everything I had brought. My buddy sold $200 of his old Corvette parts. Unfortunately I didn't sell anything on Sunday and had to drag my 2 "heavier than hell" fox body doors home! I pretty much cleared out my storage building, so that will save $65/month when I move out of it. I was selling my used parts for about 1/2 the new price and did better than anyone else in our area. The big guys selling the new heads, intakes and other expensive parts didn't do that well. Everyone seemed like they were looking for a bargain! I guess its a sign that the bad economy has hit the aftermarket performance industry. It's aa good thing Adney did'nt drag all those heavy cranks in there, he probably wouldn't have sold enough to make it worth while.
