2012 Pate Swap Meet

This year marked the 40th year of the Pate Swap Meet at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

This annual event brings people from all over the country to see and swap  automobile related items, motorcycles, vintage collectibles, and complete junk.  There is absolutely no telling what you may find but be prepared to see some very high retail prices (based on asking prices I can put my kiddo through college if I sell my motorcycle plate collection). Here are some photos of my favorites.  Thanks for checking them out and make sure to “like” the Sir Wheelsy Facebook Page.
