Default Hershey Swap Meet 2018

Its coming this weekend, and I'm a first-timer. Looking forward to seeing what's out there. Who else is going?

I'm on the lookout for a torsion bar carrier, rear trailing arms and 200lb stock ride height springs as well as a celebration edition medallion.

I've also got a clean 924S hatch if anyone is looking for one, I'll pack it in the truck.

This will be my first time also; I'll be heading out Friday morning as it's around a 7hr drive to the hotel which is 8ish miles away. Look for the early Guards Red/Black interior 944!!

Good luck finding that medallion!

Bummed I'm going to miss it. I have gone the last 2 years - always some interesting finds and a great assortment of cars.

I'm heading to the opposite side of the country to Luftgekuhlt 5 on Sunday in LA.

I'll be there for a bit. My wife and I are celebrating our anniversary at Gettysburg this weekend so we'll stop by.

I'm not really looking for anything but that doesn't mean I won't trip over something!

I'll be there but not vending this year. I do have spare torsion assemblies that I can bring, and any other parts you may need (except the medallion) if you'd like to pre arrange an exchange.
I'm looking for decent 951 / s2 front fenders.

I went last year for the first time and it was really interesting. I even found some odd things that I really didn't think I would. See you all there,
John

Bringing my boys, they are pumped to see everything. Not really sure what to expect, as this will be our first time going to anything like this. Should be a fun time. Not really looking for anything but with my new to me 90 944 s2, a 2005 Cayenne Turbo, and my eye on another S2 project car (really hope the selller lets it go) I’m sure I can find something to pack in the Cayenne for the trip back to Buffalo.

I plan to be there with my 86 NA in the People's Choice parking area. It's usually a good time, so many P-cars and lots of stuff to look at in the vendor area.

Looks like nice weather, albeit a little on the cool side.

I will most likely be there, walking around in complete anonymity.

My wife wants to go, so I'm going. Either with the red '88 or a not Porsche depending on if I can get it ready to go in time.

I've never been so it'll be fun.

It is pretty fun and LOTS of great Porsche cars. I've seen a couple of Carrera GTs and a 959 there in previous years. Hoping for a 918 this year!

Looking for an Airbox with hardware for a 1986 951. Also a set of track wheels for a late offset car. I won't be there but my mechanic will be.

Think I saw you car at the swap and later at Chocolate Ave Grill? Nice looking 944. You should have parked in the concourse area!

Need more 944 representation, so it's not such a 928 show!

Thanks! Yup, we were there (wife came along) and we did go to the Grill for lunch afterward. Great food!
You are correct about 928 representation; there were many among us. I admit that the Shark happens to be my favorite model.

BTW: Did you see that 1984 928 (red) in the for sale area? It was a very pretty car but had sketchy mechanicals and the owner hesitated on many questions when asked about service history. I was ready to buy but something in the back of my head was yelling "not this one". I should have asked one of the concourse 928 owners to look at it for me but oh well... Besides, we're breaking ground next week on our garage so we have absolutely no room for a few months.

Unfortunately, the trip did not go without a hitch. The car developed some sort of fuel leak on the way back and an area (about the size of a hand) of paint flaked off the bottom rear corner panel by the time we made it home. I'm pretty bummed right now...

No celebration medallion this time but I did score a nice working cargo cover, turbo rear spoiler, torsion bar carrier and some killer 944 brochures/books! Had a great time
