    It's definitley worth going to. It seems it's only getting bigger every year. Not a whole lot of stuff, but alot of Ferrari guys.

    What is the best time to arrive? And how about parking a non Ferrari? Across the street in the strip mall?

    I didn't know they were doing anything - I went in on Sat. morning to look at the blue 355 there (just because of the color - not to buy) and some guy was unloading Ferrari prints -I guess that was for the sale.

    Lou - I think if you couldn't park in the dealers lot, you could park across the street.

    I'll be coming down this weekend.
    Where and when?
    Directions?
    What time does it start?
    What do the vendors bring? Don't want to travel for just books,magazines or key chains.

    Jordan, I might have more what you are looking for. I will have 3 tables loaded with Ferrari collectables - diecast toys and some Boxer engine parts.
    This should be a good turn out .

    Not much of a swap meet. Pinin, is it always that small? I gather you were the one that had the biggest selection (car models)? Kinda surprising FOC doesn't try to make this into a bigger event...

    Brian,
    Lat year it was alot bigger. I figured this year it would be even BIGGER. Unfortunately it wasn't that good this year. I did pick me up a few rare Cavallino mags.
