I always enjoy the annual Lethbridge swap meet, it is usually an indication of winter ending and a kick off to the automotive season. I often do not find a lot to buy but get to run into a few folks I know and see some interesting sights. This year was a little colder than usual but still offered the same highlights.
The selection of special interest vehicles in the parking lot is often fantastic. This year it was a little thin due to the it being a cold, damp day but several brave owners still brought out their vehicles. This hot rod was labelled the Hillbilly Hauler. It is certainly a driver for someone as it was fitted with winter tires. I believe the body is a 1934 Ford.
Looks like a 4.3L GM V6 engine.
This massive Ford F650 pickup truck makes a statement.
This 1974 Chevrolet Suburban had a 454 big block and was offered at a similar price.
Moving inside many vendors had their wares on display. A few hub caps for sale here.
And this Chrysler Hemi V8.
My pick to take home would have been this 1927 Ford Model T for $6,000. Looked to be an older restoration that had maybe had been sitting a while.
1994 Jaguar XJS.
Maybe just a shell? Another 1927 Ford Model T.
The lone Brit of the day was this 1971 MG B. I do not believe the colour was original but it looked sharp none the less.
I have always wanted to build a vintage speedster style car. One vendor had a great collection of parts on display. Sadly this time was not the moment to make a purchase as I would need a bit more garage space.
It cleaned up quite nicely.
Rear engine Skodas were sold in Canada for a short time. I have always wanted one but I am likely about two decades too slow as they are very thin on the ground these days. I did get an owner’s manual which is likely as close as I will get to Skoda ownership.
I also picked up a 1978 Camaro brochure. a ’78 Z28 was the first car I bought with my own money so I have a soft spot for them.
A few more photos here. hopefully next year the weather is a little warmer to bring out a more full parking lot selection.
