Default Coolspring Power Museum Fall Swap Meet

I will be attending the Coolspring Fall meet for the first time. I checked the list of people who said they were attending and only found a handful of names there. Is this a small event or do people not want others to know they will be there?

Thanks!
Denis Rouleau

Dennis, I wouldn't miss this. My second most favorite show. People just don't bother to note they will be going.

I will be there at some point, I think some people don't post that they are going to a show because that means nobody is HOME..guarding the hen house so to speak..

I won't be able to make it this year, other commitments you know.
If anyone in this great hobby it is one of those places one MUST attend.
Where on earth can one see the most unique engines in the US and meet some of the nicest people and the who's who in the engine collecting world.
For those that have been there know what I am saying for those that have never had this experience YOU just have to go and see what I mean.
The only negitive is that everything does't run as some items have been winterized but still they put on a GREAT SHOW, and I would like to thant all the opperators for running some of the must unique, collectable, big and interesting engines in the world.
I hate to miss it but those other commitments.

I am new here and I am thinking of going to the show. Can anybody guess how many running engines might be for sale at the show? I'm looking for an IH M or 3&1/2 HP older Jaeger in running condition doesn't need to be fully restored.

Hi All
There are always plenty of buildings full of quality engines on display if the weather is not cooperative along with the vendors who come rain or shine , so don't let the weather keep you away.
There are four of us going in my truck and we are bringing the trailer with some goodies to sell.

G'day y'all. We visited Coolspring in August and were very fortunate for Dr Paul Harvey and his wife entertain us for a couple of hours. Wow what a place and all I can say to you guys how lucky you are to have Coolspring at your door step! If we were not 14000 kilometers away we would be there with bells on. (Then again the snow don't turn us on much :-) the day we were shown around it was a fantastic 80 degrees) Would like to make it for this event one day soon. Perhaps the mid year show when it's more beer drinking weather.
Russell

Do the sellers take good checks or do I need cash?

There is not a vendor in the world that wouldn't prefer CASH. So bring the green.
