Pomona Swap Meet

   There’s nothing quite like a swap meet and car show to properly kick off your week. If you will be in Southern California this weekend, I’m green with envy. Sunday, January 13 is the first Pomona Swap Meet of the year, and I’m sure it’s going to be a fun event.

   Eight events are held throughout the year, so if you miss this weekend’s show, not to worry, the next event is March 9.

   The show is open to all cars, but it does lean toward the hot rod crowd — hey, it’s Southern California! They have a great policy of giving free show admittance to stock condition pre-1931 cars that are driven in, so you just might see some gorgeous brass-era vehicles as well. They welcome pre-1975 collector cars, pre-1957 street rods, pre-1975 VWs, all Corvettes and Porsches.

   It’s a swap ‘n show for early risers — the gates open at 5am! Have fun, and if you attend, take some pictures and send ’em my way so I can post them here!
