Mid America Motorworks will host its bi-annual Swapfest on Saturday, May 7, 2011. The swap meet will once again be held on the corporate campus in Effingham, Illinois, where automotive enthusiasts of every type have the chance to explore thousands of parts, buy, sell and swap, as well as meet with other collectors. In addition, a "Car for Sale Corral" will be available for individuals who would like to sell their vehicles.
"Swapfest is quickly becoming a 'must attend' event. Finding great bargains is just part of the reason. People really enjoy meeting and having fun with other automotive enthusiasts at Swapfest," said Mike Yager, the company's "Chief Cheerleader." "We have just completed upgrading our Swapmeet facility with new roads plus expanded and improved swap spaces. This is an important and growing part of our hobby. Dont miss it!"
All items offered for sale must be automotive parts, accessories, or memorabilia for any type of enthusiast auto, whether Chevrolet, Ford, Mopar, Hot Rods, Street Rods or Muscle Cars, plus special emphasis on Corvettes and Classic Volkswagens. To keep the real swap meet feel, only private sellers are allowed; commercial vendors will not be permitted. Swapfest runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the corporate campus on North Rte. 45 in Effingham, IL. For those looking to sell their own collections, 20' x 20' exhibit spaces are available for $20 each. Anyone wishing to sell a vehicle at the Swapfest "Car for Sale Corral" can do so for a non-refundable fee of $20 per vehicle. Exhibitor set up will begin at 6:30 a.m. Attendees can also purchase Mid America Motorworks' returned, scratched and discontinued merchandise at special discount prices, plus buy new parts and accessories at 10% off catalog prices.
