Our 2022 All-Porsche Car Show and Swap Meet was this past weekend. We had solid turn-out, great weather and there loads of neat cars in our parking lot for the show.
Friday night's literature meet was mostly held outside. The weather was beautiful, so the tents weren't even needed!
There were a lot of 914s in attendance. We counted at least 18 that were lined up, including several 914-6s
This Rubystone 964 Carrera RS was just imported to the states. Very, very cool car.
Dan Mainzer's Smyrna Green 356B was stunning in the sunlight.
This 1969 Signal Green 912 captured second in our Peoples' Choice car show. It is owned by Maureen Arata from New Haven, Indiana.
Chris Moore's Cashmere won best in show.
Cashmere's interior is as nice as the exterior.
We liked the period correct BBS alloys on this G-Body. Rad!
Mike Immarino's 356A Coupe was third in our Car Show. Always a favorite!
After a year or more of worldwide turmoil, it's nice to get back to what we love. Looking at some sweet Porsches, finding bargains on vintage parts and talking to our friends from around the country. We've been holding our Stoddard All-Porsche Car Show and Swap Meet since 1987 and this one had the most cars on display that we can remember. They were wrapped around the parking lot and they were accompanied their owners, both young and old.
The vendor count was solid, but we were particularly happy with the show turn out. Plenty of neat Porsches, from early 356s through the latest models.
Our 34th Annual Stoddard Swap Meet is scheduled for June 4th and 5th, 2021. We are planning on having the Friday night literature and toy portion of the event outside. We're renting a second "circus" tent to make this work.
The 2022 LA Lit and Toy Show will be held February 26th at the LAX Hilton in Los Angeles. You can see more here:
Registration is now open! We are starting to figure out the schedule for the rest of the week. If you have a related event or open house, please email us at [email protected]
Our 33rd Annual Stoddard Swap Meet as held this past Saturday, August 29th. A wet weather forecast, cancelled car show portion and the current events all effected turn-out, but we were pleased with the attendance. There were approximately 40 vendors and we saw steady booth traffic throughout the morning. We were limited by the state of Ohio's limitations on mass gatherings, so the car show portion could not happen--but there certainly were some nice looking Porsches in the parking lot for our "Flea Market."
The 2020 LA Lit and Toy Show was a great success--just sneaking in before much of the world shut down. Here are some images .
