Portland Swap meet, PIR & EXPO

April 5,6, and 7th, set up day is April 4th for vendors. the granddaddy of all swap meets. largest west of the Mississippi. 5000 booths, thats right sparky, 5000, powershop, wear comfortable shoes. While it is mostly old cars and parts there always is a good section of motorcycles and parts as well. Also lots of tools and shop equipment. I also buy metal polishing supplies there as i can save on shipping. I will likely have some stuff in the show, we have multiple booths near the MAX Train platform in the lower section parking lot at the expo, as my buddy Hal bought multiple booths, however i will be in California at the Clubmans show which is sadly the same weekend. Also ill have a sign up for some of my car projects. Who needs a kit car? If you have never been to this be prepared to be amazed. Bring a backpack, get close with a motorcycle and padlock and chain. Parking is a nightmare if you drive your car, come back at night to pick up large items, or avoid the crowds and parking and ride in on the MAX train. shuttle buses can take you over to PIR which is filled to the Brim as well.

    Bummer about the rain this weekend, but that just means More deals for you! Soldier up, get out your rain gear and power shop, or head down to Californication like me,, Im leaving for San Jose shortly for the clubmans, warmer and drier.,, If you see my pal Hal out there walk up and say hi, old guy, no coffee but runs around like a ferret on a triple espresso, lot of energy for an old guy, to distract him tell him theres Triumph parts 3 rows over on the left side,,

      just like Forest sez,,"You never know whatcha gonna get", with a show this big there is always something of interest. It might not be what you came for, but once you see it you realize you need it,

      Opps, dont hit shift, it sends the message, what i wanted to say is i wish they would have it instead at the end of May, April weathers is always a crap shoot, however at the end of May we ALWAYS get a burst of good weather,false summer, then when June & the Rose festival starts it rains for another month. End of May would have a good shot at balmy weather for our shopping pleasure.
