This event also brings along with it a great display of Classics Cars & Hot Rods that people bring from all over the country, these cars are then parked up for us all to look at and admire, we have had around the 700 cars on display, a great spectacle on its own.
The swap meet usually gets around the 150-200 swap plots of all sorts of wonderful parts for your car or truck., new and second hand. There are also around the 50-60 Trade displays inside the main covered arena that represent a wide variety of automotive businesses.
