Hey guys, we'll be there like always ready to hook you guys up with some killer deals on equipment. 40-60% off most items is pretty insane so be sure to come by the booth while supplies last! We'll see you there, bright and early!

Green army will be there with a lot of miscellaneous parts 10 car tires trophy truck tires 1450 short course tires. And a pit golf cart gas powered lifted.
Also things that don't fit on the trailer come see us about for details is a race ready single buggy and a semi trailer short course canopy room. We will have a "cls landscape" box van and a white 2015 f350 with flatbed of tires. And can't miss the white golf cart.

I race outlaw figure 8 and use my off road contacts for some parts sometimes. I am looking for a 19"×27 or 28" double pass chevy style radiator. A 7.0 ford 9" ring and pinion. Msd 85551 small bock chevy pro billet distributor and msd wires optima red top battery preferred to be new or slight use. Small block chevy v belt pulleys 7.25 triple disc clutch for small block chevy. Saginaw 3 speed trans. And a 47 1/2 or 48" 3" driveshaft. If it has ford 9" yoke on one end that works. And using it for saginaw on other end. Wildwood chevy style mount 2 or 4 piston calipers. Small block chevy driverside dipstick road race oil pan with double kickouts. Early sbc valve covers with crossover breather tubes. (Meaning breather tubes come out sides of valve covers to put breathers in center of motor) preferred fabricated aluminum but I can deal with stamped steel or aluminum ones. 14x5 K&N air filter.
If you have this stuff come find green army and I'll go to your spot to make a deal. Will be there late Saturday afternoon thanks

The Swap meet layout is pretty funky this year. Everything is in the dirt area up top. Many of the isles have no rhyme or reason to them. People are still pouring in by the droves but it's a little bit of a cluster F.
Happy shopping!

First off, Thank You Curt for putting together another successful swap meet for our community.

This event is much like a race where your results depend on how much you prep and your strategy Throughout the year prepping the race car it is easier to purchase new race parts knowing the take offs are going to the swap meet even if you get pennies on the dollar knowing you don’t have to live with that pile of old parts because it is gold to someone else.

I prepped allot of stuff the week before washing off dirt and spray waxing the items this small effort makes a difference it the item doesn’t show its age .I box the items accordingly for arrival .I have a two day strategy. Saturday we arrived at 5 pm and were redirected to the upper lot above the one we typically use ,the entry line was long but the line moved rapidly no more than a 5 minute wait .The upper lot is in the dirt some complained but hey we race in the dirt so what’s new , some complained about the parking being disorganized but that worked to my advantage ,I picked a line and got a killer spot that I would not of gotten being sent down an organized lane parking in a predetermined cavity for my seller size load, I feel this made getting in the gate faster than the previous method . Driving thru the crowd is no different than contingency at the 1000.you are in an ocean of people wanting to touch your stuff and be the first to peek inside to see what you have. When parked the first thing I has to do was chase off all the people looking in the bed of my truck and trailer trying to open boxes. I had to yell at them to back off and come back in a hour, I got some nasty looks but they all came back. The first thing I did for crowd control was to set my boundaries with yellow caution tape that everyone respected and didn’t cross, I planned on only using it to set up but used it all weekend as it helped control the Kayos.

The first stuff I unloaded was my boxes of $5 crap everyone loses their mind if they can by something cheap weather they need it or not and sells fast, this allows you time to unload and set up your more pricy and time consuming items. A lot of the items sold on Saturday are either going back to Mexico or to another seller’s space. The buyers on Saturday are different than Sundays customers they traveled along way to get a good deal or need inventory for their spot for Sundays customers, the selling is a lot faster with less negotiation because they want it now before its sold, Sundays customers are less serious about a compulsive purchase and are out for a walk to enjoy the event more like going to the zoo, with the attitude of we will come back after we walk the event.

I learned to put some small items in boxes they could dig thru on a table they stopped longer and the ease of the table made it easy for them to dig thru it was truly a traffic stopper


The internet audience has a couple of miss conceptions and there are some gray areas regarding the time it starts and not getting deals on Sunday because the real deals got sucked up an Saturday bet that’s not true I don’t sell anything cheaper on Saturday than I would on Sunday as a matter of fact I am less likely to negotiate because I am confident I will get my asking price the next day. On Sunday after 9 am I give unbelievable prices because I am tired and don’t want to pack the item up and take it home so the real deals happen mid-morning Sunday.

We stopped selling Saturday at 2 am not because there were no customers but because our space was so disorganized and needed restocking for Sunday, we covered our stuff with tarps and drop cloths and caught a few moment of shut eye, back up at 5 to reorganize and things were in full swing by 6 and didn’t slow down until 11, at that time the swap meet hangover started and had to start packing up to leave , my friend Kenny who helped me remarked that was kind of fun in a weird kind of way and I have to agree I saw a lot of old friends and moved a lot of inventory to me it was a success.

I encourage anyone who is on the fence on selling to do it even if you aren’t sure your stuff will sell or you don’t think you have enough inventory .Anything sells I bring my old tools and miscellaneous items not related to racing it all sells. Don’t wonder if a spot will be left for you ,one will be made .Concession stands are there for all your needs .Wash and clean your used items they sell faster ,box your inventory so you can control your sales when you get there ,customers want to buy immediately even while you are waiting to get in the gate, There are no bad spots swappers will cover the entire event and most make at least 2 laps .Get there early Saturday so you are not in a hurry and overwhelmed by the crowed. Bring Caution tape for crowd control; bring tarps to cover tor merchandise if you want to take a nap between 2&5 am. Bring change everyone comes with $20 bills .Bring flashlights or a generator and lights the event has lighting but can’t be expected to cover every inch or shadows created by the crowed. Bring a portable heater and dress warm, this event had ideal weather and a full moon conditions were good. Buyers bring a wagon or hand truck. I approach this event the same as a race and have a great time every time I go the secret is preparation.

To some it is just a swap meet but it has now grown to be an Event,

Thanks Race Dezert for allowing us to post our items and making all details available to your viewing community it make a difference that wouldn’t be possible without your Blessings.

Thanks Curt, can’t wait until the next one.

Is that true?? Didn't hear word about that this weekend, just that they wanted to keep the lower paved lot for semi truck parking

Maybe it was a rumor I was hearing. Something to do with broken beer bottle mess left previous event. FYI I did not hear from the horses mouth why. But it made sense as it was to be a dry event this year no alcohol.
