I will probably go, John, Aivar will not as his daughter is paying him a visit.
There will be a 59 Coronet 2 door hardtop that Jon, (JMC Performance), just finished for one of his customers.
There is another post where a 56 Chrysler will also be there.

I will only be there on Saturday, not Sunday as I'm not into the "Judging thing", I have no more room for
trophies (LOL)!!!

Gary, this time I will come over and see you sooner then I did the last time I went. Lancer Mike and I were talking about you a couple weeks ago when I moved his 58 Dodge Convert to his house. Told him I would probably see you at this event. We were telling others of your radio conversion you had done and how neat it is.

See you next weekend! I will PM you my cell phone again.

Random photos from the Fling....missed seeing several neat cars (including a gold/white
Custom Sierra wagon & a 54 DeSoto hardtop---both seen on the street after leaving the place.

Cars were not carefully allotted parking areas, as in prior years.

Neil, sorry I missed you. You have almost the same pics I have. I will review my pics and just add what you did not post. Still at LAX waiting for my flight back to Denver. Lots of nice cars came out this morning. Love this show. So laid back,Great swapmeet, not to much Forward Look but still nice for the 60's 70's cars.

The 59 Dodge, Charcol and Pink was sharp. It broke down Friday night due to alternator issues, but at the show Sat and Sunday.

Hey, John; you didn't happen to see that gold/white 57 Dodge wagon, or that red/black 54 DeSoto 2-dr HT???

Sherwood (who reads these posts), it was nice to see and talk with you, there.

I was out there on Saturday and Sunday. It was a really great event and the Forward Look turn-out was amazing. That is my Sea Spray and Black 56 Plymouth. We met so many great people . . . all I can say is WOW. I am uploading a quick video to YouTube of some of the cars out at the show. I will post a link as soon as it is done. I will also post up a few more pics when I have a chance to resize them.

Thanks for posting the photos, Neil.

Looks like a good selection of FL cars present, someday We'll have to make the trip to the show.

I was there on Saturday and got the phone number for the 55' plymouth that was on the trailer, however I lost it, I tried zooming in on your .pdf no. 10 & 11 however, I can't see the phone number. If anyone knows the phone number for this car, (I know it is an 818 area code as this is local for that part of So. Cal.), I would appreciate any help.

Neil, Sorry I missed your post back in April, I will go back through my pics to see if I have them or not. Were they there on saturday or Sunday?

I took early Saturday pics before going to the swap meet. Most of my pics are on Sunday, but I will review them to see what I have.
