Hello all,     https://www.facebook.com/events/676675255838252/

An exciting venue for all 1969 to 1971 Boss Mustangs and Cougars , late model Boss 302's , and a SPECIAL CAMMER reunion taking place.   The town of Marysville has "opened up" in support of this event as Greg Boss (Boss Motors) celebrates 80 years as a Ford Dealer.

With the planning in full swing for this fun event ...

This will be an event supported by the town with extended hours , ample accommodations AND various events for food and fun! If you want to see, learn about Boss Mustangs, meeting restorers and vendors OR JUST put a name to face (from all the forums and groups) THE BOSS NATIONALS will be the place to be in 2018.

Hi all !    If you have joined the Facebook group, you know registration is close to 100 cars now!  Stickers have been chosen and "things are moving along" (amazing the amount of work that goes into an event like this for success)!

SPECIFICALLY - I would like to offer info and discuss the SWAP MEET (to be held on Sat AM) !!

As advertised, Swap spaces will be avail for $30 for 15X20 Ft with multiple allowed!  Accommodations for those with larger needs can be made - but we don't see that as a Carlisle/Pomona style swap !!

THE THOUGHT is to "bring restorers together", by posting, discussing and committing to bring/attended with need to buy SPECIFIC rare items.   Face to face, parts in hand with no need for Paypal fees, shipping or "OMG what did I buy !" (after the fact).

The reason for the effort is "we are all restoring rare cars", we know the importance of a given part for our cars AND to some degree WE ALL compete with each other on Ebay or sites and some tire of loosing or overpaying all the time!

From a sellers standpoint "we can't bring everything to an event"!  How often does someone say DO YOU HAVE.....?  (and the answer is yes at home).     From a buyers standpoint WE all like a deal, but we all have stories like "If you were here yesterday , there was a guy selling ..."

Planning (on the part of vendors) and discussing needs by buyers could insure value in attending on both parts!   Will it be like the old days where 3 vendors have same part for 3 different price points?  Probably not!   But this group "isn't the walk around with a catalog and offer $69.00 for a 50 year old NOS Ford part".

Maybe I'm crazy to think such and idea can work!  I'm willing to put the effort in (other than running the swap).   Not bringing the whole garage - but if banter continues WE all will know what to bring in Sept.

Mark
P.S.  I HOPE "the usual suspects" VENDORS will contact me , via PM or directly as I want to assist you.   I know there is value in purchasing from the MANY respected members we all know.
