Swap Meet in Peotone, IL

   Let’s face it, cabin fever has been tough this year—and I’m as desperate as everyone else to get out and enjoy my hobbies. When planning my weekend activities, I just had to find a toy show to attend, so I was very pleased to discover that the Beecher Farm Toy Show will happen tomorrow. With my Sunday open, I went straight to the Calendar section of Old Cars Weekly to find a swap meet. I’m in luck—the Peotone Car Club is hosting its 20th Annual Swap Meet on Sunday at the Will County Fairgrounds.


Here’s the info:

   Swap meets have a character all their own, and in the cold, damp mornings of early spring, they are among my favorite places to be. I might or might not find a useful car part, but I’m running low on shop cloths (you know—those red ones that you can’t live without) so I won’t leave empty handed. Besides, I like to support the activities of car clubs, so I’m sure to enjoy my trip to Peotone.


   Car clubs are a topic I intend to visit in more depth, both here on my blog and in the pages of Old Cars Weekly, and I’m pleased that this swap meet is sponsored by the Peotone Car Club. I joined a car club this year, the Ford Galaxie Club of America, and am really enjoying the newsletters and all of the amazing knowledge of the club members.
