Default Le Sueur Swap Meet

Hey Guys,

Seeing that le sueur swapmeet is coming up (on april the 28 - 30) and iam am trying to convince my dad to take me there since my grandpa won't drive that far.
I was wondering if le sueur swapmeet would be worth the 13 hour drive from my home?

thanks
Jordan

I would say no but that is only my thoughts on it. I went to it last year and only had a 7 hour drive. What little there was there that was engine was overpriced and not many. The rest was mainly just tractor stuff. So if your into tractors then I would say go for it but if you want to find a nice engine without having to get a loan from the bank then no. Keeping another thing in mind, the engines that I seen there could be bought around here where I live for half of what the asking prices were so that is what I am basing my ideas on.

Tim

I recommend that you wait a few weeks and go to Coolsprings on June 15, 16, 17.

For you it's about a four or five hour drive into Western Pennsylvania along
RT 80.

Get there early and you'll have a great time at the swap meet.

The engine displays are fantastic.

I live about four hours away and I'm goiung again.

Your right it is about five hours and i think i will wait and try to convince my dad to take me to coolsprings instead. if we do go it will be perfect because in the way home we can look for some oifield engines.

thanks

Question Re: Le Sueur Swap Meet

How far is Coolspring PA from the PA-NJ border, on RT 80? I am thinking of bringing the Charter-Mietz with me, along with a friend or 2.
