Turlock Show Turns 42

The Turlock Swap Meet has become one of the premier events for hobbyists in the restoring and collecting of antique and classic automobiles. Started in 1965 by the Modesto Area A's, a chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America, the swap meet has quickly grown into a nationally known event. For CPP, it was "touch and go" in the days leading up to the 42nd Annual swap meet, if we were going to make it up there. Southern California is known for our mild climate, but this year Mother Nature has been making up for lost time. With road closures and "Storm Watch 2008" in full force, we continued packing up, not wanting to miss the event for the first time in 10 years. Fortunately we made it there with no problems and the weather turned out to be beautiful. Swap meets really give us an opportunity to meet our customers face-to-face, not just a voice on the other side of the telephone. Overall, it was a great weekend and we look forward to it again next year.

I have 21 street rods, never came across you guys before, but always attend turlock. Loved the prices and quality of the two tri 5 dropped spindles I bought. Can't wait to see you at the next swap meet. I need dropped spindles and brakes for mustang 11 setup.
