Swap Meet at Bill Jacobs Chevrolet

   The swap meet season is well underway, and don’t forget these winter events as great locations to find toys. Old car fans are often toy car fans, and their events can yield unexpected treasures for your toy collection.

   This Sunday is one of my favorites, and it’s been going strong for 35 years — the annual swap meet at Bill Jacobs Chevrolet in Joliet, Illinois. The event is presented by the Great Lakes Region Vintage Chevrolet Club of America, but don’t let the Chevy sponsorship fool you, this event is for all makes and models. There are usually some hearty outdoor vendors as well as everyone inside the spacious dealership.

   For more information contact: Jim McDonald (708) 485-3633 or email glr@vcca-glr.com

   Hours are 8am to 1pm, and the address is 2001 W. Jefferson near the corner of Rte. 52 and Rte. 7 — you can’t miss it!   

   Bundle up and enjoy the swap meet!
