Bothwell 2010 Car Show and Swap meet / flea market - August 6 & 7, 2010

The Bothwell car show and swap meet / flea market is a good event to attend.  It is in the small Southwestern Ontario town of Bothwell in Victoria Park.  I have attended this event many times in the past years.  Bothwell is about 50 kilometers or approximately a 1 hour drive from my house.  This would be similar  to the Waterdown, Ontario car show and swap meet.  There is always a wide variety of vendors selling all kinds of goods, and a good selection of cars to view.

To view the poster for this event go to the following Old Autos home page: .

Bothwell is also the home of the Old Autos newspaper a Canadian publication devoted to car enthusiasts.  The link to the Old Autos newspaper is: .

Vendors will be selling on August 6 & 7, 2010.  I have found many good deals there in the past.  Vendors must pre-register by calling:  519-354-2442 .

The car show will be only on August 7, 2010.  The theme this year is trucks and larger trucks 30 years or older.  These vehicles will get in for free this year.  There is still time to pre-register your vehicle by sending an email to: .

Gates open at 8 am on both days.

There will be a free gift and wooden plaque to the first 1000 vehicles.  All vehicles will register at the gate for $10.

If all goes well, I will have my 1987 Corvette convertible there.  Today I was just finishing up with re-installing most of the parts back on the motor.  Tomorrow there will be the finishing touches and I will start the car.  If everything goes well, then a good cleaning will be in order to get ready for the car show this weekend.  Wish me luck. In any case I will be bringing my video camera to shoot some video and take a few pictures. I will post these on my blog next week.
