Haven't been there in over a decade. Always a good meet.

Well if you decide to go this year, send me a PM and I will send you my number. I always try to let other people know if I see good parts that I pass on.

I know a Corvair guy that is going but he will be selling parts from his Pontiac A-body collection.

I usually don't see much Corvair stuff at this meet. I think most people selling Corvair parts do it at Corvair specific swaps.

I can usually find a few things for my 63 Nova, but good stuff is going for crazy prices these days.

I've been to Turlock twice; first time maybe 30 years ago, and then 10 years ago, walked the fields with a friend from San Jose. One thing that struck me, comparing that meet with others I've attended (including Portland, Oregon 3-4 times) was the absence of NOS parts. Plenty of useable desert parts, but very little new. I have a varied "collection", in addition to Corvairs, '66 Galaxie, '73 Riviera, '76 Capri, and at one time, a '62 Olds Jetfire, so I wasn't focused on just one brand, or model. Was I looking in the wrong spaces, or was my impression correct?

There is a lot of NOS smalls and mechanical. There are a few dealers that have some nice NOS stuff, but it's usually in the buildings,
I scored a complete Corsa dash yesterday for $80.
The PO of my car drilled through the dash and glove box panel to install speakers, so I was glad to find it.
Now I just need to find a 65 glove box panel
