19th Annual All British Car Swap Meet & Auto Jumble
March 15, 2015
The 19th Annual All British Car Swap Meet & Autojumble was held on Sunday March 15, 2015 at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, IL.
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 event now includes all marques of European sports cars and motorcycles and is conducted with the goal of 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. This year’s
Swap Meet was successful even though attendance was down — both vendors and customers — by 20%. Weather was very good: sunny at about 55° F with no snow or rain. Our 13,200 sq ft facility had 65 vendors occupying 87 spaces displaying their wares. Over 550 shoppers participated. Since its 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.
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.
