Mark,
The Columbus swap is no doubt the best one for Ford parts.

I have never attended this one, perhaps Jeff G can tell us more.

I went last year to the show and the swap meet was nothing to write home about. The swap area covered about what a normal High School Gym would be. I did find a couple of good finds. There was a local used Mustang and Cougar parts dealer there...other than that it was mostly Mustang stuff, tools and toys.

Don't get me wrong...it was a good show....there were some really nice cars there. Pictures are on the KCC web site.... http://www.kyianacougars.org and go to the Show Pictures page. Hope this helps out.

All I know is that I was going to attempt to have a booth there last year, sell some racing parts maybe some cougar parts. My son was pretty sick at the time and I explained this to the contact guy you have mentioned above. I told him we would have to take my son to a specialist in Cincinnati without notice when the doctor was available to see him, and that I'd try to make it to the show. This was about a month in advance.
I mailed the fifty dollar check for vendor space, and found out within preceding week of the show that I'd have to go to Cincinnati that same weekend as show so I called that promoter back and told him the situation. He seemed fine with sending back the check but never did. I called back once and he said he had already turned in check so it was too late.
No bid deal I guess, I just thought it was on the greedy side so I doubt I'd ever patronize anything of theirs. Too many other honest ones out there. You know how it is, the money isn't the idea ,fifty bucks isn't the idea, it's the lack of integrity you never forget! ...........Keith
