Normally I will find something else which I just HAVE to do....HE may find bits of twisted metal and other car bits and pieces laying on the ground, interesting....BUT I can't really say that I do! BUUUT....This time I decided to go along anyway. MUCH to my delight, the so called 'automotive' swap meet had a lot more than just 'automotive'! PHEW! SOMETHING for me to look at... Read more
