WOODSTOCK – From complete vehicles down to the smallest parts and lots of nostalgia, Oxford Auditorium was a Mecca for all things automotive on Sunday.
Pat Menogue of Windsor stands in front of the antique gas pumps and reproduction pump globes and clocks he had for sale during the 18th annual Woodstock Automotive Swap Meet at Oxford Auditorium on Sunday.
Between 1,500 and 2,000 people combed through the treasures at the 18th annual Woodstock Automotive Swap Meet.
More than 200 vendors had tables in the auditorium and out in the parking lot at the event hosted by three local car clubs, including Western Ontario Mopar Owners, Bygone Iron and Ingersoll Rod and Custom.
The three clubs established the meet 18 years ago after deciding to pool their resources.
“ We just got talking and we all had small swap meets so we thought we’d put them all together and see how it went,” said Reg Gurney, one of the organizers of the event. “Every year it keeps getting bigger.”
Proceeds from the swap meet are divided between the three clubs and they put it back into the community through charitable donations. “It’s a place to bring people together,” said Gurney about the meet, which is held the second Sunday of April every year whether it’s “rain, shine, snow or Easter Sunday, it doesn’t matter.”
Besides a huge assortment of vehicle parts, there was everything from die cast models, antique gasoline pumps and old oil cans and bottles to signs, magazines and licence plates.
Pat Menogue of Windsor had two 1950s gas pumps he has restored for sale at the meet as well as several reproduction pump globes.
It was the first time Menogue had been at the Woodstock meet but he said the trip was worthwhile.
Steve Lindsay of London is a veteran vendor at the Woodstock meet and he said it’s the people that keep him coming back every year.
“I like talking with the people,” he said while standing next to his table of die cast models. “You always get a good crowd here in Woodstock. It’s great.”
Mike Homer and his wife, Bernadette, of London were keeping an eye out for parts for the 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS he is restoring as well as some nostalgia signs for his shop.
“We’re just kind of wandering, seeing what deals are out,” said Homer, who has already restored three cars.
Homer said he and his wife are regulars at the Woodstock meet.
“It’s not too big, it’s not too small and the prices are usually good, that’s why we come all the time.”
