Labor Day Swap Meet

The Labor Day Swap Meet was a success! Over 80 vendors gathered to sell their goods to crowds of people visiting from all over to celebrate the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival and Labor Day weekend. Gas tanks, hubcaps, and tires were sold in plenty. The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum did well on admissions for the weekend and sold many raffle tickets for the 1957 Ford Thunderbird. Overall it was a fun ACD Festival and Swap Meet week here at the museum, and we look forward to watching this event grow.
