Oct.4, Midwest Fall Swap Meet & Antique Auto Show Minnesota State Fairgrounds St. Paul

Again, I usually don't do car show coverage but I will put this one on for now. My wife and I recently attended this show and swap meet sponsored by the Capitol City Chapter of AACA & Twin Cities Model "A" Ford Club, and eventually travelled a little way down the Mississippi for a fall colors drive before heading back to Thunder Bay. Even with the inclement weather, there was an incredible collection of model "A" Fords. I managed to pick up a few great deals at the end of the day for my new Ford "T" project. My favorite was the '50 Ford 2-door with the flattie and 3 deuces. There was a good variety of custom cars as well and only one example of a Rat Rod. Us northerners have to be vigilant now as the snow has already fallen here but quickly disappeared. As mentioned in the last post, the building season is now upon us as we hibernate for the winter(Man, I hate that word). Thanks for looking! click on photos to enlarge
Post Script....Please note that the half track is actually from Toronto, Ontario originally, enlarge poster to read. D
