    What is a "swap meet"?

    Other than that is has to do with cars, most apparently.

    That car "made from stone" is a sight! I do admit.
    I really like the reflection shot (2)!

    thanks.

    a swap meet is basicly a flea market but with more car parts than old dresses. basicly its a male flea market ;). i saw about 30 old cameras today including mamiya, rolliflex, canon, fujinon and brownie. its pretty fun to go there because about 70% of the people that go there have radio flyer wagons to pull stuff around in. my dad and i sport one from the 70's that has huge tires on it :p

    A swap meet is a way to make a car show sound unatractive so the wife stays home and thinks your going to be home soon. That way you can be gone all day eating hot dogs and drinking soda walking around looking at beautiful cars (and chicks). Some people might bring a bumper for an old mustang or nova and try to sell it.

    wait wait. i dont know what kind of swap meets you go to but there is literally millions and millions of parts available for all kinds of cars at the one i went to. "might just bring one bumper" means that you're going to a boutique rather than a swap meet hahaha.
