The 2014 Stoddard Swap Meet in Cleveland, Ohio landed on a perfect day weather-wise, which possibly was too nice and kept some people away. The crowd was thinner than in years past, but it was a great day with great friends regardless. Bill Rohrer, Dan Mazur and Sebastian Gaeta traveled from Ann Arbor, Mi to meet up with old friend Tim Buko from Strasburg, PA.
We had three spots together to sell stuff and did pretty well despite the low attendance. Tim didn’t bring anything to sell but went home with plenty of new (used) parts.
Ted and Jim Dunham were there; Ted was looking for some early 911 trim pieces to help finish his backdating project of a 911 SC.
Also representing the Gruppe were John and Pam Chatley, helping to make Convertible D ownership that much better.
It’s amazing what I find in my garage every year to bring to the swap meet, especially when I leave the year before thinking I have sold everything worth selling. Stuff just finds its way to your parts stash through the year and you are in business again!
Bill, on the other hand, is only scratching the surface of his 356 stuff that has been in hiding for the last two and a half decades. That alone should get you to Ohio next June.
