Well, its all over and here is what I found over the past week.
I arrived on a Tuesday. The show started Wednesday. A few vendors were set up. I left my stuff in my trailer because I was just to lazy to set up for aonly a few hours.
I set my room up with the Kingsbury and steelcraft truck in the window. I put a huge price on the Kingsbury because I didn’t really want to sell it. A few pressed steel guys came buy and told me that I had something far rarer than I thought. I knew the truck was rare, but I guess the particular model I found is extremely rare. Ofcourse, that made me happy and my grip upon it that much more tight. 🙂
Wednesday came and went, Thursday arrived with nothing special showing up. There was a nice ruble seat roadster but It looked too perfect in every way not to be hand built. In my opinion. that is. I let it pass.
I was dissapointed in the show, It had alot of pressed steel but the pedal guys of old were just not there. The inventory was just not there either. I brought my all orignal skippy dump truck. I brought it to to show but not sell . However, somone came up and offered a price I could not pass up. I have sellers remorse but a pocket full of cash. mmmmm?
I picked up several restored cars and brought a few more to be restored. I do not think I will return to P Forge. It is too far to drive for entry level stuff and not much of a chance of anything else.
Here are the pics of the the last few days. I left on thursday, instead of Friday because of the invetory was not showing up. I did have a good time and pick up a few toys along the way. It was not a total bust. But it was very expensive trip for no ultra rare pedals.
