February 24, 2013
The 17th Annual All British Car Swap Meet & Autojumble was held on Sunday February 24, 2013 at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, IL from 8 AM to 3 PM.
The event included all marques of European sportscars and motorcycles providing a meeting place for buyers and sellers of used parts, new parts, accessory items, tools, memorabilia, and just about anything else of interest to the European sports car and motorcycle enthusiast.
The Swap Meet is organized and conducted by our club alone although it has the enthusiastic support of all the other British Car clubs in Chicago. This year our 13,200 sq ft facility had 74 vendors occupying 99 spaces displaying their wares. Over 700 shoppers participated. Since itís beginning, this event has proven popular with British car enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest. Buyers and sellers alike travel in from a multi-state area in search of parts, services, regalia and memorabilia items.
Based on our initial unaudited finances, this year the event net proceeds is estimated to be $2,600. Not bad for a dayís work!
Thanks to all our club volunteers that helped in setup, ticket sales, manning the CMGC booths and assisting with cleanup. We could not have had a successful event without you.
