We decided to head back to the show for a few hours on Sunday to see the rest of it… HA! This show is impossible to see in its entirety in less than 3 days and to really enjoy it, you need all four days, particularly if you are looking for parts for your classic.
We hot the show about 9:30. I wanted to concentrate on the parts and literature vendors and they occupied several halls in the convention center. Chris hung out with me in the beginning but after spending what must have seemed to him as an interminable 15 minutes poring over many stacks old Dutch Esso Oil lubrication fiches, he wisely decided to split up and tour the show on his own for a little while.
There were vendors for every imaginable area of classic automobilia: Literature, rubber seals, brake lines, SS metric hardware, body parts, headlights, ignition parts, wipers and on and on; most of this NOS parts. I was woefully unprepared to take advantage of all these offerings and should have had with me all specifics pertaining to my Fiat 500L and Citroen 2CV and even the BMW: Old, historic part numbers for all consumables such as points, condensers, plugs etc., wipers lengths, bulb specs, etc. Let’s take a look:
